Back in September ’11, when New Girl was, um, new, I found myself echoing this thought from Fishersville Mike:
We know it’s not reality-based. Cute girls just drop in on a group of guys and bring their friends. All. The. Time. Big Bang Theory started with one girl and now has one for every nerdy guy. Zooey’s new show has Hannah Simone as the first of many potential models to visit the apartment.
This may be why I never watched Big Bang Theory: I never could believe the notion of one girl for every nerdy guy. (I blame Jan Berry, who swore that in “Surf City” it was two-to-one, though those guys presumably weren’t nerdy.)
And I don’t think this scheme is going to work for New Girl, since Hannah Simone seems to be turning into Zooey Deschanel. Take a look:
Were you to put tights on Hannah, the illusion would be complete.
Just to hammer the point home, here’s the whole cast, with the real Zooey at center, or so they’d like us to believe:
Now when the guys start looking like Zooey, then I’m gonna worry.
