Yes, I have become a Newbie. As I mentioned last week, I gave New Girl a trial-run last year, and I couldn’t stand it. The show forced its “adorkable” angle too much. I quickly got annoyed that Zooey was everywhere, acting in the same manner whether she was Jess or frolicking in frocks for Cotton commercials.
But then, thanks to the recommendation of Alyssa Rosenberg this past autumn, I gave the show another chance.
And it’s marvelous.
