American television sitcom
Stars Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Hannah Simone
Premiered in September 2011 and just started their SECOND season this year in September!
Literally one of the funniest sit-coms I have seen in a while. The quirkiness of Jess’s character is admirable and definitely something different from all other american sitcoms – an alternative to mainstream humour and catch phrases. Plus, if you’re like me and have a weird sense of humour, who laughs at odd things that others dont pick up on, you will absolutely LOVE this show.
I love the opening – short, simple and captures everything of Jess and the general feel of the show. Check it out!
The more you watch this show, you begin to wonder if Zooey’s real personally is actually portrayed through the character of Jess. That is how different the character is from all other shows, and you see this right from the beginning. It’s amusing to see how her innocent, weird and funny personality gradually blends in with the 3 guys she lives with – Nick, Schmidt, and Winston . They too are also unique and exaggerated, but become more relatable.
The storyline and plot are rather simple, and solutions to the problems that occur are relatively easy to achieve at the end of each episode. I think it’s rather their interactions with one another that bring the awkward humorous moments for us to enjoy and how some characters begin to change and join in to do ridiculous things (mostly for Jess). For example, at a wedding they go to, this show has upgraded the chicken dance to a whole new level!!!
Seriously, anyone who watches this show – any episode – won’t regret it. It’s fresh, sweet and endearing, awkward most of the times but enjoyable, and easy to follow.
