New Girl: The Complete First Season (DVD)
A comedy series from executive producer and writer Liz Meriwether ("No Strings Attached"), NEW GIRL features a young ensemble cast that takes a fresh look at modern relationships.
After a bad break-up, JESS DAY (Zooey Deschanel) needs a new place to live. An online search leads her to a great loft...and three single guys she's never met before. But Jess moves in, and through her unique sense of self and the support of her new roommates, she learns to move on.
Of her three new male roommates, NICK (Jake Johnson) is the most grounded...and also the most jaded. A law school dropout, he spends most of his time hiding under his hoodie and tending bar. SCHMIDT (Max Greenfield) is a hustling young professional who's pretty proud of his own abs. WINSTON (Lamorne Morris), is an intensely competitive former athlete who doesn't know what to do next-but whatever he does, he wants to win it.
Rounding out the group is Jess' childhood best friend, CECE (Hannah Simone), a model with a killer deadpan. As their relationships progress, these five realize they need each other more than they thought they would and end up forming a charmingly dysfunctional - or strangely functional - family.

Thoughts from OHM:
I literally squealed with delight when I got Season 1 in for review. New Girl was one of our main shows that we HAD to keep up with last year. Every single episode was absolutely fantastic. No matter what it would put a smile on your face! There is just something about the dynamic between the five main characters. The New York Post said it best.."Finally, a new sitcom that could fill the shoes of Friends...and Seinfeld." I pray that this show keeps up with it's quirky awesomeness. The writers, the casting, everything is just brilliant.
