New sitcom 'New Girl' sees Zooey Deschanel as a geeky quirky girl Jess who moves in with three guys after a tragic break up. She's a sweet girl and her character is extremely strong- I love it when she just breaks into song about her life.
Her roomies- Schmidt (Max Greenfield, famed for being the douchebag), is a douchebag; Coach (Damon Wayans Jnr), a gym trainer who can't talk to women; and Nick (Jake M Johnson), who just got out of a long relationship.
Of all the roomates, I like Nick the most from the pilot given his humanity and he just seems most real, down to earth, relatable... Schmidt takes douche to the ultimate level.
In the pilot, the guys try to rescue Jess by setting her up with a rebound whilst Schmidt is desperate to go to a party Nick's ex could get him into.
The plot wasn't too solid but the ending was sweet and that will draw people in. Overall, the pilot of 'New Girl' isn't groundbreaking; I'd still rather watch Friends on repeat, but the character of Jess as well as Zooey Deschanel is sure to make me stick it out for a few more eps.
