I assume this painfully irritating US sitcom is aimed directly at people who thought the film Juno was charming. The heroines share similar “kooky” traits, though in the case of New Girl’s Jess (Zooey Deschanel) these include wearing wacky hats and bursting randomly into song. Jess, as we know, has moved in with three cute guys after she left her cheating boyfriend. But, because she’s an idiot, she broke her new flatmates’ TV and thus has to return to her feckless ex to retrieve a telly. There are some laughs, but no wit in the world can make up for Jess. You will want to pull her by the hair through the sewage system of a medium-sized town.

About this programme

2/24. Jess's housemates refuse to lend her any more of their possessions, so she is forced to visit the flat of ex-boyfriend Spencer to retrieve her belongings. She later finds herself giving him and his new girlfriend - the woman he was seeing behind her back - a lift to the airport. Meanwhile, Coach moves out and is replaced by former resident Winston. Comedy, starring Zooey Deschanel and Lamorne Morris.
