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.

The epitome of quirky
21 September 2011 | by metrommSee all my reviews

Since I've only viewed one episode, I can't comment on the likelihood of the future success of this new series. But if the next episode is as quirky and laugh-out-loud funny as the first, then I'm hooked. I found the premise of the show to be refreshingly different (and at age 63 and being a big TV sitcom fan, I've seen lots.) And then there's Zooey Deschanel. She not only does not disappoint, she reaches new comedic highs in this role that is tailor-made for her special brand of quirkiness. The chemistry between these young actors cooked up well in only 30 minutes. Hats off to all of the fine cast members. This episode had an ending I won't soon forget and each time I remember it, I will be laughing out loud. Bring it on! Bravo!! Encore!!!
