New Girl

FOX 2011

Jessica 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. More prone to friendships with women, she's not used to hanging with the boys—especially at home.

What the heck happened to this show? It was hysterical when it started. Quirky, off-beat Jessica Day was highly entertaining and the roommates added a whole other level of humor, often times stealing the show. Now I've stalled on near the end of season three, where even the return of Coach can't seem to bring laughs back to the show. Jessica went from quirky funny to flat out annoying most of the time, and the poor male characters have been so beat down I can't even laugh with them anymore (Winston and the puzzles? Winston with his weird cat? Coach and the breakup? Is there a single ounce of testosterone in any of these guys?) Such a shame.


I liked the episode but how they got rid of coach was kind of awkward. I know he couldn't be in the show but I think they should have reshot the pilot.


New Girl has turned into downright trash after season 4, there were signs that it could pick up here and there but NO! The comedy is just so bland and unfunny that it forces me to pour acid over my eyes every single time. The characters are so poorly done, they introduce hollow characters the viewers know are not going to last (Robby, Regan), but Elizabeth Meriwether says "what the hell, lets do it anyway". And don't even get started on Winston, his character is so superfluous, that when the writers decide he can't be paired up with anyone, they give him a goddamn cat and make him effeminate. His "girlfriend" Ally is no where to be seen, she comes up for like one episode and disappears for the rest of the 21 episodes. One expects character development over the seasons but except for Cece and Schmidt, every other main character has taken a turn for the worse..they've become losers. The one anchor of the show, Coach, has been been whisked away by his "girlfriend(s)" to other states every time he makes an appearance.


I love Schmidt so much! This serie is so much fun too watch. I seriously can't stop laughing! I'm only half way, but I'm already sad for it to end.


Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Cece, Winston, Ali... we miss you all.


i used to love this show so much but since season 4 i completely lost interest and it makes me really sad.


"This is my nightmare" -me when this show ends


It's the only show that even when the episodes are not very good, it has always something that makes me smile or laugh. I just love it and hope it will have a looong life! And by the way, Winston is simply the best!


nick and jess r so cute, i need them back :( but, for me season 4 this being fucking awesome


I finished season 1 the other day. I think the actors can be really funny and Zooey is great, there is potential... but it's like the writers come up with the lamest stories possible. Will keep watching, but slowly (many other shows to see...)
