Your Next Box Set: New Girl

On the lookout for a new box set to spend your evenings devouring? Each week, will be recommending you a series that will swallow up your whole life until your finish the last episode...

This week, it’s kooky sitcom New Girl…


What is it?

The premise goes a bit like this: Jess is a down on her luck teacher in her early 30s, she’s just had a ludicrously bad break-up and needs somewhere to live. In desperation, she ends up moving into a Los Angeles loft apartment with Nick, Schmidt and Winston, three single men, each with their own bizarre quirks…


Who’s in it?

Zooey Deschanel (it’s pronounced Zoe in the normal manner, not Zoo-ey, we know that now) leads the way as Jess, with future Jurassic World star Jake Johnson as her skittish and slightly hopeless semi-love interest Nick. One-time Veronica Mars man Max Greenfield plays hyper-nerd Schmidt, with Lamorne Morris playing the wise cracking Winston and Hannah Simone as Jess’s all-too glamorous best friend Cece.


Why should I watch it?

On the face of it, New Girl is the kind of show you can dip in and out of, good time fun in half an hour instalments with no serious commitment. You definitely can watch it in these chunks, but, if you invest and sit down to watch three or four episodes back, you’ll see a subtlety and caring in the writing and you’ll quickly fall in love with the characters. If there’s still a Friends shaped hole in your life, this could easily fill it.


Describe the show in three words…

Kooky, charming and hilarious.
