And now for something completely different...
Just recently New Girl aired in Germany and since then I am a big fan of this TV series and Zooey Deschanel. She plays the quirky, chaotic but extra lovely Jessica Day.
Jess is the new Fem-Nerd, weird but sexy, whimsical but comical. She moves in with three guys, Schmidt is a yuppie, Nick is the alleged womanizer, and Winston is the failed jock. All together they build a community that suits for laugh out louds.
Individualism comes with capital letters in this series. Jess is not a freek just because she likes to sing to herself or wears false teeth to a wedding. She is individual. Nowadays this seems to be more and more important in our society. One has to be in contrast of others. Unfortunately this often feels too forced or doesn't come with the desired effect. Not so with New Girl Jess who is being different by making fun of herself and not acting out individualism.
Have you seen New Girl? Do you like it? Or do you think it's just weird?
