Last night I started watching Zooey Deschanel in her delightful new tv show New Girl, and already I am addicted, and I think maybe a little in love!
Zooey plays instantly loveable character Jess Day, an adorable, quirky and sometimes emotional, school teacher who is just happy to be herself. After a bad breakup with her cheating boyfriend, Jess moves in with three roommates who just happen to be guys. Obviously the guys consider Jess a little unstable in light of her breakup behaviour which involves spending her first week after moving in weeping and watching Dirty Dancing back-to-back. But eventually the lads help Jess pull herself together and friendships blossom.
There is excellent chemistry between the cast of characters, which as we get to know them more makes them even funnier and more endearing. The writing is sharp, witty and the humour is dry and laugh-out-loud infectious. What’s not to love?
Jess is honest, she loves to sing to herself, her vintage retro style is delightful and I cannot wait to see more of it, oh and did I mention her hair? Her hair is so beautiful, with that thick fringe and those doe eyes of hers, I have obviously got a girl crush, right?
Yep, it’s definitely a crush.
