Great series very funny and was nice to see them gel so well and become like a family. Jess is just so funny and would love to have her as a flatmate can't wait for series 2

The chemistry between the characters/actors is just brilliant, and makes for some hilarious scenes. As much as the humour becomes predictable, you can't help but laugh in every episode, and Schmidt in particular steals the show. The kind of TV box set you can come back to again and again.

  Brilliant new comedy series.

From the teaser trailer I seen a couple of months ago I knew I was going to start watching this show because it looked pretty funny and it definitely lived up to my expectations and more. The main characters consist of Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Winston and Cece with some other guest characters occurring along the way. Each character is funny in their own way; Jess is the quirky school teacher, Nick is just down right funny, Schmidt is the douche, Winston is also quite funny and Cece is Jess' friend who is a model and starts living in the apartment with them a few episodes into the series.

The series is a real breath of fresh air, and I have seen the entire first series online already so I know how good each episode was and the quality is consistently great throughout. I'm delighted to hear this show is being renewed for a second season and I can't wait for it. This TV show is a light heart comedy and is a good watch for anyone.

  Unoriginal but Watchable Sitcom

| | See all deanlowdon's reviews (468)

Have just split from her long term boyfriend Jess (Zooey Deschanel) answers an internet ad from three guys looking for a new roommate. The opening couple of episodes are passable, doing a good job of introducing the different characters as well as being fairly humorous in places. From then on much of your enjoyment of the show will largely depend on how you feel about Deschanel's character. She is undeniably beautiful but many will feel she runs a fine line between being cute and irritating during a number of episodes and not everyone will find her strange mannerisms funny.

Elsewhere there is the odd laugh to be had even if it is hard not to feel that you have seen many of the plots and scenes before in any number of other US sitcoms, was the 'accidently seeing your roommate naked' idea for example not already done on Friends? In the end New Girl certainly makes for a watchable, if rather predictable, sitcom (particularly if like me you are a fan Deschanel) but with many more original comedy shows currently available on DVD it is unlikely I will devote much time to a second season.

  Love It

| | See all hotspur96's reviews (18)

Granted there have only been 4 episodes aired in the UK I love it.
The Humour equals that of The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother which I Love. Zooey is a great actress and the situations that her character has been put in are hilarious, the 3 roommates try to bring her character back to reality as such they are her anchor and it works the show is a must watch the show is really well written and I will be buying as soon as it is released.

Buy if you like The Big Bang Theory or How I Met Your Mother.
10/10
