Watching New Girl the second time through has been even more enjoyable than the first time, and in my opinion it is the most underrated comedy on television today. The series follows the lives of three male roommates and one female, named Jess. She moves in with the boys after her boyfriend of four years cheats on her. The incessant joking and bantering is original and light, and the plot continuously evolves. Unlike other comedies that repeat ideas and get a bit old after a few seasons, New Girl in my opinion, year after year delivers.
Although many friends of mine have tried watching the series, few have gotten past the first few episodes. Admittedly, Jess, played by Zooey Deschanel, seems to try too hard in the first episodes and is a bit uncomfortable to watch. Once past the introductory episodes however, you cannot help but fall in love with the relationship of the group.
Many have called New Girl the modern day version of Friends, and I could not agree more. I actually find it to be even better than Friends, which by the end seemed to have lost its charm. I promise if you give this show a chance, it will be very worth it!
