Urban Dictionary states that adorkable means “both dorky and adorable, a higher state of being all dorks strive towards.” Tthis is the perfect word for Fox’s hit comedy New Girl.
New Girl follows the life of Jess (played by Zooey Deschanel, ex-wife to Death Cab For Cutie front-man Ben Gibbard and the “she” of She & Him), a romantically challenged, awkward, free-spirited, elementary school teacher (see definition for adorkable above), and the three guys whose loft she moves into after a break-up.
The show is filled with plenty of awkward moments and sexual tension as the guys — Nick, Schmidt, and Coach — adjust to life with their goofy new roommate. They even begin to care about Jess, and develop a better understanding of women and themselves through their roommate.
Now, if you were expecting some great music since the show was starring indie rock’s darling Zooey Deschanel, you would be definitely be correct. From the show’s theme song, sung by Zooey herself, as well as bands like Beach House and Alabama Shakes, the New Girl soundtrack is filled with awesome tunes (especially the feature of quite possibly the best song written in the 90s, “No Rain,” by Blind Melon).
