Before I started my blog post, I have no clue which show I was going to write about. After reviewing the list of shows, I decided to choose New Girl because I felt it was the most popular and it had great reviews on Netflix. Dave Finkel is the screenwriter for New Girl and has done more work with different comedic shows such as 30 Rock and George Lopez, both famous and very comical. He started off small, but now, with New Girl, has made a bigger name for himself entertaining the world with his work.
The dialogue for New Girl is a conversational type, which is very similar to the other shows he has worked on. This type of dialogue kept me engaged in the show due to their witty jokes and funny dilemmas. Since the show follows five very different people, all living in the same apartment, the show becomes very relatable for many different audiences. I felt like I connected well with Nick, because he was always struggling in keeping a job. Over the summer I tried to maintain multiple lifeguarding jobs but sadly failed. There were many silent moments throughout the show, mainly when a character says something stupid and the others don’t know how to respond or act back to them. I found this to be fairly relatable when I, or my friends do something stupid and we look at each other like “what the heck man”.
What stood out to me is that the show is very different from many other movies or TV shows. Since the episodes are only 20 minute episodes, the conversations between characters are very short and sweet, making them get straight to the point. This increases the validity about how the show is relatable because this is how people interact in real life. I really enjoy the show even though I was skeptical at first, and glad i picked it.
