[first lines]
Jessica Day: So you know in horror movies when the girl's like: "Oh, my God, there's something in the basement. Let me just run down there in my underwear and see what's going on." And you're like, "What is your problem? Call the police." She's like, "Okay," but it's too late because she's getting murdered? Well, my story's kind of like that.

User Reviews

I love Zooey, this show... Not so much.

Reviews Of Unusual Size!

Re: A newly single girl in the city moves in with three young men. There, she sings her own theme song, watches Dirty Dancing and other quirky things people do on TV shows.

Outstanding: Zooey is so darn cute!

Unacceptable: The rules for the house's Douchebag Jar are completely arbitrary - that jar should be overflowing by now.

Summary: I watched this show, and I'll probably watch the next episode, but not because I laughed once or found any of the supporting characters appealing, it's just that, even when she's doing stupid, silly, unrealistic things, I can't resist Zooey's charm.
