Full Show Summary: New Girl plays a bit like Three’s company, but reversing the premise. Jess is a girl who has caught his boyfriend with another woman and is really devastated by it. After leaving the apartment they shared, her friend Cece suggsts her to be the new flatmate of three male acquaintances, who are not very keen of the idea. Sure, Jess is a cute girl, but she might well totally disrupt the fun, guy-oriented lifestyle they lead. But in the end they take the risk, and it turns out that, despite their many differences, the girl and the trio become good, caring friends. The guys just have to assume that geting into weird situations is just part of Jess’ charms. New Girl has better photography and production values than the typical sitcom, and it also takes the somewhat risky step of disposing of the laughtrack, leaving viewers to decide for themselves what’s funny or not. The scripts are not terribly original, touching upon many typical romantic comedy staples, but they’re reasonably fun and charming. Probably the show’s greatest strenght is the great chemistry among the characters, whose relationships ring true from the very beginning. The actors display great performing skills and comedic timing, and are key to make the whole affaire convincing. Of course, this is Zooey Deschannel’s show. Miss Deschannel is one of the cutest things one can see nowadays in a screen, and with her magnetic personality and experience in comical roles it’s really not much of a surprise that she got her own series. Her character is vulnerable, but also cheery and likable. You’ll see her falling in love, singing and being generally cute, which will be more than enough reason for her fans to see the show. With a run of only two seasons so far, it seems New Girl will still go strong for a long time.
