New Girl (2011)
Started off strong but.....
Now to be fair, I haven't watched every episode of The New Girl. I'm not even through the first season. However, it's the beginning episodes that hook you on a show. If you don't love them, you don't continue watching. The writers made a fatal mistake, the same mistake they made with Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23. The pilot was great, the idea was great, but they took what made it great and beat it until it was dead. If you already can't watch by the 6th episode, why would you continue to give it a chance?
I was looking forward to the character development in this show. But they took it way too far. Take Jess for example. Her thing is quirky. But there's quirky and there's just plain stupid. I hope this isn't considered a spoiler, but there's an episode where Jess is preparing to sleep with the first guy since her breakup. It was so overdone and ridiculous, I couldn't even watch it. And Schmidt.....there's metrosexual, and then there's "please just come out of the closet already." And before anyone cries homophobia, I watch this show with my gay son who also thinks Schmidt is just flat out unwatchable. He's walked away shaking his head more than once. There's Coach, who isn't annoying, only because they still haven't done anything with his character at this point in the show. He's just sort of there in some scenes.
Clearly some people love this show and are horrified to learn not everyone does. Some people hated it and stopped watching. I'm somewhere in between. I can take it in small doses, two episodes in a row is all I can do if I'm bored at the moment. It will take me years to watch the whole thing, assuming I don't lose interest completely.
So if you're debating whether or not to start New Girl, just ask yourself one simple question. Does over-the-top stupid humor work for you? If it does, you found your new favorite show. If it doesn't, don't bother and move on.

I have never reviewed a movie on IMDb before. This inspired me to do so. To be fair, I could not make it past the 20 minute mark, and a review should be by someone who has watched the movie in its entirety, however, I believe if a movie is SO BAD you can't even sit through it, that itself says something.
Kudos to the people who suffered through it, giving it a chance, but my husband and I couldn't find the remote fast enough! We enjoy stupid humor, but there's a difference between intentionally stupid and just plain dumb. B movies can be great if they're done the right way, this wasn't even B movie quality. Z maybe. The attempts at humor (that I saw) could have been written by a 10 year old who finds farts hysterical. Not just funny, fall-on- the-floor annoying funny. The story could have been good if it was written better, and maybe it got better later, but I didn't stick around to find out.
A few people who actually wasted their lives on this trash gave much more in depth reviews. They can explain better why you shouldn't subject yourself to such drivel. Heed their warnings!
