I adore Zooey Deschanel enough that I thought I could watch her in anything.  She was the only reason I was able to make it through the insipid Hitch-Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy film.  But no.  Three entire episodes of New Girl didn’t make me laugh at all.  Yet somehow this waste of time is the first new series to get a full season order.  How?  And why?

Actually, to be honest: two and a half episodes … I had to give up on the show halfway through the third episode.  I went out of my way to give it one last chance, but it was so bad it gave me a headache.

And really, what’s the point of having your star (who happens to be an accomplished singer) sing the theme tune when you’re only playing it for ten seconds?  That’s a perfect example of what a waste this show is.
