When I first read about the premise for the show New Girl, I was very concerned. I imagined it would be one of those woman-bashing shows about a woman who prefers the company of men because women are too something. But I was curious and wanting a new sitcom to enjoy so I checked it out. I've waited to write about it because I kept waiting for the plot line I had expected. I'm very happy to say it never came.
Zooey Deschanel plays Jess who went through a bad break up and needed a new place to live. She chose a lovely loft apartment with three men. The part I love most about the show is how her strongest relationship is with her best friend Cece. In fact, all of the women on the show have very strong female friendships. The men in the show have their own struggles but the focus is always on Jess's growth and struggles.
