Critics Consensus

Zooey Deschanel 's offbeat style gets a worthy showcase in New Girl, and while It can get awfully cutesy at times, the show benefits from witty writing and a strong supporting cast.

Audience Reviews for New Girl: Season 1

  • May 24, 2021
    A great opening season with some interesting characters that work well together. It is on the money most episodes but a few real duds mixed in. Sometimes it tries to hard to be wacky but overall a strong season
  • Mar 28, 2021
    I had to watch the first episode a few times to get past the second-hand embarrassment but now it's one of my favorite shows.
  • Dec 04, 2020
    I could hardly sit through the pilot. I failed to see the funny part. The three guys ? Godaweful acting. I'm definitely not coming back for a second round.
  • Nov 23, 2020
    It doesn't seem like it, but New Girls' one of the funniest and original comedies around. It's not at all familiar or recycled, which is outstanding if you want to laugh at stories you haven't seen other shows repeat 50 million times. Also one of the most hilariously quotable shows!
  • Oct 20, 2020
    Funny! Relatable characters, good pacing. It was quirky and fun and overall enjoyable. Shmidt is a standout.
  • Oct 14, 2020
    It's really good, like really good. Has the same kind of energy as 'How I met your mother' but with a more diverse cast. Congratulations to the casting director because the Actors are amazing. The plot is engaging and I have no complaints overall. It's not one of those shows that you need to watch before you die, but it is very enjoyable.
  • Jul 06, 2020
    it's fine 70% of the time. sometimes it gets too weird tho.
  • May 06, 2020
    The show New Girl is an amazing show to watch because it is first of all hilarious, it captures a great friendship, that you immediately fall in love with. Each of the characters embodies a different personality. They show that sometimes life can be messy and that is okay. I felt so realxed watching the show it's amazing. Towards the end of the season. I was wishing for a friendship just like in the group.
  • Aug 15, 2019
    Fun show with a funny cast, a little over stereotypical but I still enjoy the light hearted kooky jokes. Watching New Girl, it feels like the cast and crew were having a good time making the show!
  • Jul 21, 2019
    While it's amusing and easy to watch, it perpetuates ditzy girl stereotype. Can't we have smart strong funny women who don't need to use sexuality to be desirable?
