Huge laughs from new American comedy
New Girl is a brand new television series which stars quirky film actress Zooey Deschanel as a woman in her early twenties who moves into an apartment with three men. Now, with the amount of new American comedy being shoved on our screens at the moment an assumption could be made that this would be another stale comedy, which is mainly for an audience of yanks.
Throw that idea out the window, because this show has something different to offer the viewers. The comedy is continuous throughout and is guaranteed to have you in stitches in parts, whether it’s Jess’s (Zooey Deschanel) unpredictable personality, schmidt’s (Max Greenfield) hilarious quips or Nick’s (Jake Johnson) outbursts of girlfriend trouble.
Fans of films of Zooey Deschanel will not be disappointed as her character has the same feel about her as she portrays on the silverscreen. Most will know Deschanel for being a very musical person in such other films as Yes Man, Elf and 500 Days Of Summer as she is always singing at some point, and it’s no different in New Girl, sometimes the actress just breaks out into a song in the middle of a sentence which is a real enjoyment to watch.
A wide range of viewers will enjoy the show, not just girls and women as it is loaded with hollywood insider jokes, and in a comedy based around a woman most might think it would be a girly girl character and if it was a film, a chick flick. The show is far from that as Deschanel creates an unpredictable, loopy and downright crazy character which both genders would find hilarious.
The show was written by Elizabeth Meriwether who was also behind the writing for the recently 2011 released romantic-comedy film ‘No Strings Attached’ which starred Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher, and the show was produced by Jake Kasdan who directed the 2011 comedy film ‘Bad Teacher’ which starred Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal. With a writer and director of successful comedies the show should continue to bring the laughter.
This show will be what you’re talking about for days to come.
New Girl is on E4 at 8.30PM on a friday evening.
