I have a love/love relationship with my television. I watch a ridiculous amount of television — some guilty pleasures, some shows that I just can’t wait week after week for (read: The Vampire Diaries, The Good Wife and Revenge), and some that make me laugh and cry (read: Parenthood). There are new shows that come and go every fall (some quicker than others) and some that upon first viewing, I can tell it will be a huge hit. New Girl was one of those shows. Zooey Deschanel stars as Jess, a quirky girl getting over a big breakup, who moves in with three guys (Schmidt, Nick and Winston). This unlikely mix of people become each other’s friends (and family) as they all try to deal with different issues in their lives. Sounds like a fairly standard sitcom, right? Except it’s so much more heartwarming and hilarious.
