Back in 2011 the sparkling new Fox comedy New Girl introduced the world to Jessica Day. She had just gone through a super embarrassing break up and needed a place to stay somewhere in L.A. Luckily she ended up moving in with three roommates in a beautiful factory-turned-loft who happened to be looking for a fourth. It didn’t take long to realize that this group of emotionally over-the-top young adults was anything but perfect; but in the seven seasons that have followed they have learned to love one another almost as much as the audience has fallen for them. Now, their collective story of friendship, sex, love, friendship again, and then more love (sex is implied in that last one) is coming to an end, and my biggest fear as a day one fan is that, like many great shows before it, New Girl might also abandon what we loved about it before leaving us with an unsatisfying end forever, the way Jess left whatever apartment she had before finding the loft. Fortunately, that isn’t the case at all. I think fans of this amazing show will actually get what they deserve -- a proper send off.
