Can someone explain to me why this show is funny AND still on the air?
3 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like to think of myself as very open and forgiving when it comes to most things in life, including entertainment. I get why some people like "Rent" and I do not. I get why "MST3K" went on for so long even though my wife and I don't like most of the movies (too boring.) they were making fun of. But what I absolutely DO NOT understand is why on Earth, everyone and their mother "raves" about "New Girl." Now, I've liked my share of flops, either from fandom (yes....I did like the Dare Devil movie....flame now or forever hold your peace.), or because it was catchy in the beginning.....Kyle XY season 1 was so well written and reasonably acted, I watched until the show's demise, and even petitioned a return, which seldom works...I know.

After the upcoming new show commercials aired to promote newbie shows I thought....this does not seem funny. I thought "hey...that chick from 'Cloverfield' is kind of cute" realizing later it wasn't her. But that's about it. Beyond her cute appearance and mannerisms (reminiscent of Dharma and Greg....which at least had some redeeming moments), there is nothing good about this show.

I watched the pilot.....did not laugh once. Episodes 2 and 3....barely got smiles from me....and I'm often told I'm the guy who is always laughing at everything, even the unfunny stuff....which is true, I love comedy. That makes it even more disturbing....that I'm not laughing and all my friends are. The humor isn't high-brow Dennis Miller/Bill Maher type of comedy (which I do enjoy). It isn't Beavis and Butthead stupid (which I also enjoy). It's mildly amusing situations. A girl having a crush on an older man....teehee, how cute. Oh and the mother walks in to find her wrapped in cute. And that's about every episode....."awww, how cute...the character grew a little." I saw more character growth in the movie "Tank Girl," which actually got a few laughs from me.

The friends are a group of people whom you find living together in a million years. I mean how many guys in their 30's do you know sharing a loft with 3 other guys. They all have decent career paths but somehow can't afford to live alone. The cast is what Seinfeld would have been if they had all lived together....the show wouldn't have worked and been dumped by the network after a few episodes. Meanwhile, I see shows that are good getting canceled.....most notably "ManUP"...I've noticed almost every title Dan Fogler is in either does moderately well or goes belly up. The sad part about that is, everything he's in is almost always a riot. The dude has such a comedic presence....whether it's his delivery or a quick look. Just looking at him almost provides a chuckle. "ManUP" wasn't ground-breaking, or "new" in it's style....but it worked. Character's constantly conflicting, growing, and building off one another while being humorous. These are all the adjectives I cannot use to describe "New Girl." I'm almost afraid it's so popular and liked because a group of people started liking it and now everyone has to. see American Idol/Survivor/Any "reality" t.v. show.

At least "Arrested Development" will be back next year....I do have that to look forward to.
