New Girl Reviews & Ratings

Tuesdays, 8:00 PM ET on FOX

30 minutes

A new single-camera comedy from Liz Meriwether ("No Strings Attached") that features a young ensemble cast and takes a fresh and outrageous look at modern male/female relationships. Jess Day is an offbeat and adorable girl in her late 20s who, after a bad breakup, moves in with three single guys. Goofy, positive, vulnerable and honest to a fault, Jess has faith in people, even when she shouldn't. Although she's dorky and awkward, she's comfortable in her own skin.

Fun and colorful series.
There is a "dumbification" of feeling and drama, but it makes it easy to watch.
Want to have fun and chill with friends or solo, this is a great show for you.

It starts loosing it's appeal after season 3, but still watchable.

Not the best show ever, but if you have nothing else to do, it's worth your time.

The show started out as one of the funniest 30 minute shows I've seen but it has started to digress in quality over the years. All in all still a great show to which I laugh at least a couple of times every episode.

This show is hysterical. It went through a period where I was getting a bit annoyed, but the writers pulled through and this last season has to be one of the funniest ever. If you start watching this and find yourself losing interest, keep with it. It gets better.

Right from the beginning, new series New Girl has you falling for the quirky show, hook, line and sinker. From the outset, doe-eyed Jess (Zoe Deschanel) thrusts you into tragic post break up mayhem. The aftermath? Finding a new apartment.

Coming across a converted factory loft, you find Jess at the heart of three guy roommates, snot nosed, bleary eyed and watching re-runs of the pinnacle of romance films, Dirty Dancing. The Bachelors: Schmidt (Max Greenfield), a camp, Jewish Ladies man, with a severe case of ODC, Nick (Jake Johnson), a bartender with no proper life ambitions, also recovering from a messy break-up and Coach, a personal trainer, who is then replaced later on by Winston, who returns from playing basketball in Latvia for two years. He's the type of guy who always misunderstands women and their feelings, loves ducks and hilariously sings songs from the musical wicked.

The guys eventually decide to take Jess in, on finding out that she knows Cece (Hannah Simone), a model who happens to be Jess's best friend . What the gents are soon to discover is that, unlike the stereotypical model, she is smart, understanding, quick-tongued and very protective of Jess; she will do anything to stop Jess from falling into the mishaps of the lads and also Jess's own naive plans of trying to find a new man in her life.

The series brings out some hilarious plot lines, throw a dart and you're likely to hit something comical. With lines from Schmidt like "The loft just became Big Momma's house!" referring to Winston's mum, Jess going as Nick's date to a wedding to make his ex jealous, to Schmidt's birthday on a bus. This show will never cease to make you chuckle.

Meriwether has obviously put a lot of thought into how she wants the characters to be portrayed, which has given the keen program a fresh new take in the sitcom genre. Take Jess for example: She is clumsy, but at the same time elegant, shy but outgoing, innocent but also seductive. These types of mash ups make the show evermore enticing. The socially awkward are nothing new to the TV screen, but Deschanel brings a young sweet mix to the usual geekyness we are used to seeing on American Sit-coms.

Some say opposites attract, and from the chemistry you see between the whole clan, you really do see that statement come to life. They all mix together to make one magnificent TV show. If you took even one of the characters out of the show, it would definitely not be the same, they all complete the show.

If you think that the cheeky charm or the crack-up quality of the show is a one off, think again, time after time again the show just keeps supplying the goods we go back for. Everything about the show draws you into it, from a cast, that has to be said, is easy on the eye, to the awkward chat up lines that make us cringe in our seats, you wont want to miss another episode again! It's good quality television at its finest.

So, as the series follows, you find yourself waiting eagerly for the next witty insult or another ill-fated scheme one of the troops has conjured up. Either way new girl has you longing for more. Whilst the show has its funny moments, and believe me, there's a lot of them, it can also take a tricky, dire situation and bring it down to earth for us to understand, adding a slight humorous spin on things whilst doing so. The show is both funny and fitting, if you are looking for a something that leaves you with a light heart and reminiscent giggles, this is the program to pitch into.

a quirky story about friendship. I did not like it at first but it is nice for something short to watch just before bed. the characters kind of get to you.

Zooey Deschanel is probably my favorite person ever. She is adorable and funny and she's not afraid to be weird. And I feel like the other members of the loft really embody that too. I can't get enough of New Girl
