Zooey Deschanel is such a talented comedian that it's easy to think her inspired performance as the star of New Girl is just her persona. And while Deschanel's Jess truly is "adorkable," cute, winsome, awkward, and guileless, Deschanel's performance in New Girl anchors the whole series, like Mary Tyler Moore or maybe Lauren Graham in Gilmore Girls.
The situation--Jess needs a place to live when she discovers her boyfriend cheating, and ends up in a giant gorgeous loft
with three guys she hasn't met before. Thankfully, New Girl breezes right by any innuendo à la Three's Company but focuses instead on how two completely difference species--men and women--interact when they must live together. The supporting
cast is just as brilliant as Deschanel, including Max Greenfield as the self-important blowhard Schmidt; Jake Johnson as Nick, who's aspiring to become underemployed and resentful about it; and Lamorne Morris as Winston, a former athlete who still feels the need to win whatever he might be doing (except, say, the dishes).
Can this foursome survive--thrive--in close proximity to one another? Because of the deft writing and acting, the answer is
a resounding: Yes! The season-one boxed set includes a commentary on the pilot episode and two other episodes of the season, a guide to Jess's creatively funky wardrobe, and loads and loads of alternate scenes, deleted scenes, and goofs
and gags that are just as funny as anything in the final product. Long live New Girl!
The romantic tension between Jess (Emmyr Nominee Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson) escalates in the hilarious, quirky second season of New Girl - but will they ever hook up? Meanwhile, Schmidt fails to be hip, Winston isn't "prepared" for a hot date, and Nick faces a death in his dysfunctional family. While Jess does her best to replace Cece on a modeling job and a drunk Elvis impersonator at a funeral, Schmidt and Winston hope to rearrange Cece's arranged marriage. Relive all 25 outrageous episodes featuring guest stars like Jamie Lee Curtis, Rob Reiner and Dennis Farina, and enjoy fun bonus material - including the extended version of the hugely popular Virgins episode - only available on the DVD.
This release is a region 2 PAL and should preferably be played with a newer model dvd player (less then 10 years old) or multi-region dvd player. I bought mine from Coles for $25 Fortunately multi-region dvd players are very common now and grant us Australians the ability to see these brilliant tv shows Express from the US.
For Express post, please keep in mind that I am currently outside the gold box network and therefore overnight delivery is not guaranteed but may still be possible within NSW. Express Post from offices outside the gold box network is stipulated by Australia Post as a 1-3 day service (Australia Wide) which is still much faster then standard delivery (6-8 day service). I feel it is important to make a point of this as many people purchase last minute presents in the hope that they will arrive overnight.
If you are purchasing as a gift and require it quickly. It is always best and safest to check with me first to be certain of dispatch and delivery in case of extenuating circumstances that may affect or delay your gift arriving on time. I pride myself on my lightning fast dispatch and will always do my best to get your purchase to you as quickly as possible.
