Did anyone see this last night? A little quirky but I thought it was funny. Love the douche bag jar!
It's on the DVR... A lot going on Tuesdays all of a sudden and it's going to take a while to sort it all out. That's a good thing
The douch bag jar is great! I should implement that policy at work!
I thought the show was really good but have to wonder at the appeal of long term 'quirky'.
Also, it seemed a bit odd that the guys would jump to her rescue in the first show. There wasn't a whole lot of interpersonal development between the 4 of them. I guess the producers assume you know what would have happened in the moments you can't see. I just didn't think there were quite enough pointers.
All in all though it was entertaining.
I agree. Only time will tell on that one. I enjoy quirky teen movies but I don't watch them all the time so on a weekly basis, I'm not sure how it will fly.
I did find myself laughing out loud though. Much more than during 2 broke girls. That show is basically raunchy which for me is "cheap". The New Girl was a bit more clever.
She's a one-note gag and the cloying cuteness and self-conscious "adorkable" routine got old in the first ep. Two Broke Girls had much wittier dialog and far better drawn characters. This'll get canceled quick for sure.
I would tend to agree.
I will watch Zooey no matter how bad the show gets.
I remember hearing similar comments from others about Macaulay Culkin and the Olsen Twins back in the day.
I kinda thought that before watching the show. Not so sure after.
Watched Culkin only in Home Alone, and never had any interest in watching the Olsen Twins.
Although I haven't seen the show yet. But will tonight.
So where does every one come down on the Zooey vs. Emily debate?
They did not age as well as we hoped. :eek2:
I think all internet forums should implement 1 and use PayPal as the douch bag jar:lol:
Dang, forgot to DVR it...
Our local has it back on Saturday, Oct. 1. So I'll have the next one then the pilot after that. (And will watch in sequence, though it probably doesn't matter.)
Or Fox.com will have it available online next week.
Same here. Enjoyed the first episode, but not sure how funny the show will be if the writing revolves around her character week after week after week. I'm not sure she's working with a particularly talented ensemble here. Certainly nothing like Three's Company or Friends, e.g.
First I've seen of Zooey, but she appears to be as attractive and talented as her big sister!
Zooey definitely pulled that goofy-quirky-cute stuff off ok in her early 20's, but now that she's getting up into her 30's, the little girl gags seem kind of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane-ish.
Emily works for me.
Never seen Elf or Yes Man?
I like Zooey... liked her in Yes Man and in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy... didn't see all of Elf... but this show doesn't seem like a show that can survive long with the formula it has. Maybe it will evolve though, especially since "Coach" isn't going to be on the show beyond the pilot.
Just finished it. No question, it's a keeper.
Given her low-pitched voice, I can see where she might have a future as an understudy for Elijah Wood.
