You know when you reach a certain age, all the new shows that are aimed for twenty year olds seem stupid. I never understood Jersey Shore or for that matter Jersey Wives. To be honest the Home Network channel has more than once claimed my attention and I can’t tell you my love affair with Downton Abbey. However, one show that has become my new favorite is New Girl.
Starring Zooey Deschanel, the show centers on a group of thirty something friends who get into funny antics and learn to become a family. Recently single Jess moves into a flat owned by three guys. Nick is your all around guys guy, who drinks beer and wears hoodies all the time. Schmidt is the metro sexual guy who isn’t afraid to put on a cardigan when needed, and Winston, who is trying to find himself or at least a decent job.
New Girl reminds me of Friends, and I’m sure will share the same popularity as that iconic show did in the 90s. Just like Rachel on Friends, Deschanel’s character Jess is a style icon with all her cute dresses and oversized glasses. It’s nice to have a show that feels age appropriate, and a show that celebrates being in your 30s. If you’re looking for a fun show to watch on Tuesdays give it a try. It may become your favorite sitcom. Written By: Kristy Trowbridge
