THE PLOT THUS FAR
After a bad break-up, Jess, an offbeat young woman, moves into an apartment loft with three single men. Although they find her behavior very unusual, the men support her – most of the time.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Jess is a lovely young woman who just got dumped. Now, she has to move in with some male roommates due to the tried and true laws of sitcoms. Her model pal tries to help her get back on her feet, but the guys keep doofing around to keep the show going. The cameos were fun and the theme song is so damn catchy. Am I really loving this show? The answer is yes.
There is a lot of awkward humor in this show – the kind of moments that make you cringe, yet you can’t look away, and feel guilty about wanting to laugh. But every episode does make me laugh out loud. There’s a touch of light drama, for those that just want a light hearted show that won’t make you think too much. However, the only dealbreaker is if you can stomach how quirky Zooey Deschanel forces her character to be. There is no background laughing or punch lines or any cue whatsoever to start you laughing but I will assure you, some of these episodes will make you laugh genuinely couple of times because I could not believe myself when I suddenly burst out laughing so hard few times while watching this.
The DVD comes with commentaries, alternate jokes, gag reel, auditions and deleted/extended scenes. The A/V Quality is decent, but I wish that we could’ve received a Blu-Ray version. It sucks that a show that looks amazing in HD broadcast can’t arrive on home video in a similar manner. The Dolby 5.1 track really pops, however the transfer shows minor issues of digital noise. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase until an HD version hits the Home Video market.
