Prior to the start of the 2011 television season, there was nowhere you could turn without seeing Zooey Deschanel and the endless promotion for Fox's new sitcom "New Girl." As a longtime fan of Deschanel, it seemed like an ideal fit to have her brand of quirky charm headlining a weekly series. Advance word of "New Girl" was quite positive and the critical consensus was generally welcoming. The massive advertising budget put into the program paid off as well making "New Girl" one of the season's early break-out hits. But after an amusing pilot and when the initial glow had worn off, it became easier to discern just what was working and what was not. First of all, some viewers reacted poorly to Deschanel's wide-eyed girlishness thinking it represented women in a negative light. I personally disagree but I can see how Deschanel's shtick might be a bit over-the-top for some. But while I continue to love Deschanel and find her absolutely hilarious, I'd like to shoot the person who coined the description "adorkable!" More problematic, however, was that Deschanel was so front and center that the rest of the show suffered by comparison. Early plot lines were uninspired and the other cast members seemed ill defined.

The basic premise of "New Girl" is pretty straightforward. After a break-up, Deschanel takes up residence with three bachelor friends in some expected twists of sitcom mayhem. Naturally, this was designed to bring about maximum hilarity as various living styles clashed and Deschanel brought a feminine presence to the ultimate man cave. Nothing particularly new or revelatory, but the irresistible Deschanel had moments of comic genius. The men playing her roommates are Jake M.

New Girl is a show that I'm very fond of. I love the characters and the writing. The fights between anyone and Schmidt always have me laughing hysterically. It's first and foremost a fun show. They don't really tackle any deep issues here but there's an interesting bent to it. They hide darker themes in it like mortality and the fact that all of them are just treading water. They're having fun doing it and they're not ready to get out of the pool yet but the idea that they are all, in some way losers, know it, and are someday going to have to move beyond that is present in every episode.
If you're a fan of shows like Friends and Scrubs or even Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B in Apt 23, you'll have a good time with New Girl. You'll get used to and even come to love that idiot Schmidt (trust me. I never thought I'd get used to him let alone that he'd become my favorite character). Nick's faces are always a topic of conversation in our house and Winston's absurdity gets more apparent as the series goes on. These are great characters that you see develop over time and you come to know and love them.

The DVD-- okay... If this is your first time watching the show, you'll probably be fine, but if, like me, you've watched it since day one and have been waiting not-so-patiently for this thing to come out you're going to be disappointed.

-The blurb on the back of the box is almost an insult to the show and makes it sound like so much garbage. I don't know how the copy is supposed to entice anyone to watch this show. I don't like knowing its there, not paying justice to such a fun show.

-3 commentaries. 3. That's it. If you had ideas of watching the entire season with some companionable chit-chat going on for 24 episodes you can just get rid of them now.

The only comedy show that I can actually laugh with since Friends. Timing is accurate. Everyone needs a Schmidt. Winston is overlooked and does have his own special moments. and Nick and Jess is the new Ross and Rachel. Love Love Love Love Love Love. The only comedy on air that I dvr currently. The rest just fall flat and make me want slap people. This show makes me laugh with them and want to hang out with them. Love my Nick and Jess as well as Schmidt and CeCe.

Like honestly the show starts out decent enough for anybody to be satisfied. The farther you get though . . . the better it is.

By the end i laughed so hard and not just every once in a while, i'm talking ever couple of minutes i had to try hard to stay off the floor.

I love Zoey, but this show talks sooooo much about sex. Really? Can't we just have some good CLEAN fun?

I don't know many people who would buy a season of a show if they didn't already know they liked it, so... while it's an awesome show and I've basically had it on repeat since I bought it, some people find Zooey a bit annoying (I don't at all), so if you've never seen it before, watch an episode or two before buying this. Although it's pretty cheap anyway.

I LOVE Season 1 of "New Girl." I have watched almost all of the episodes repeatedly and I still laugh as hard as I did during the first viewings. I love the dynamic among all the main characters. Renting (or buying) "New Girl" for Schmidt (Max Greenfield) alone is worth it just for him!
