New Girl - New Fox Show With Zooey Deschanel and ... LOTR References!


I couldn't help but posting this.

I'm a big fan of Zooey Deschanel, as anyone who can rightly call himself a geek, so of course I started watching her new show, New Girl, on Fox. And because I enjoy all things quirky/geeky (queeky), I'm already a huge fan of the show.

Here's the reason why:

(about 7 minutes in)

Jess (Zooey's Character) has a huge break-up. Schmidt (3rd from the right in the picture above), her new roommate is talking to her to help her get over it.

Schmidt: Hey Jess, how you doin'?
Jess: (shruggs)
Schmidt: You look fantastic. Listen, what if you came out with us tonight? You know, after work. You know, we'll fix you up, we'll take you out. We'll get you a rebound.
Jess: A rebound?
Schmidt: Yeah...
Jess: (pouting a bit) I don't know if I'm ready.
Scmidt: You're totally ready for it. I'll take you through the whole thing. You know, I'll be like your guide.
Jess: Like Gandalf? Through Middle-Earth?
Schmidt: Probably not like...okay...first of all, let's just...let's take the Lord of the Rings references...let's put them in a deep dark cave...okay, where no one's gonna find them... ever.
Jess: Except Smeagol...(whispers) he lives in a cave.

Yes, after only 7 minutes, I'm already a fan. I'm also a fan of the Wayans brothers and their offspring.

Yeah I saw commercials for it during the games this weekend, thought it looked good and I'm a big Zooey fan myself. Too bad the show's on Fox (if it's any good, they'll cancel it immediately).

Argh, I didn't even think of that, but you're right.

I'm a big Zooey fan - I'm hoping this comes to the UK soon (if it hasn't alreay). Will be keeping an eye out for this one :)

As well you should. I really hope it doesn't suddenly take a plunge in quality though. I would be devastated.

Big fan of hers, but when I saw the trailer for this show a while back, it didn't say much to me. Will have to re-look.

I only saw Zooey and it was a done deal.
