Stars: Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield

Quirky schoolteacher Jess (Zooey Deschanel), fresh off a break-up, moves into a new apartment, with three new roommates: lovable douchebag Schmidt (Max Greenfield), former basketball player Winston (Lamorne Morris), and law school dropout Nick (Jake Johnson). That’s how one of the most reliable comedies of the past decade, New Girl, starts; thankfully, the show’s writers took potentially one note characters and deepened them into comedic gold, helped greatly by hilarious performances from the entire main cast. Now that it’s ended, consider taking the time to rewatch this perfect comedy from the beginning.
