Three sentence movie reviews: The New Girl Season 1
I’m a Zooey Deschanel fan and even with that, I found the first few episodes were a little too much Deschanel for me. However, by the Thanksgiving episode, they had hit their stride and this became a very amusing show. I also appreciated it because I enjoyed watching it, but didn’t feel compelled to watch ALL of it in a short amount of time.*
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home. (The boyfriend got interested in the show too.)
*This sounds like a back handed compliment, but it’s a really good thing. Trying to clear your schedule because you have no willpower and must watch multiple episodes in one setting is no fun. Even if the shows in question (Friday Night Lights, Mad Men, Heroes Season 1, etc.) are very, very good.
I record this show on my DVR. I mostly watch it because I adore Max Greenfield's character, Schmidt! Zooey is great, but Max completely slays me!!!
I agree that it took a while for this show to hit its stride. Once it did, though, oh man did it get good. It really slays me sometimes. I love everyone on it, but the randomness of Winston cracks me up.
