    Yeah, she's ok I suppose. I'd definitely throw one into her.

    If you're talking about looks then you are on class-A Frank Lucas drugs.

    If you're talking about acting... then you're still on those drugs

    Different strokes for different folks, Akbar.

    But I'll take some of those drugs if you're offering.

    Tottenham's finest is being sent to Batmania right away.

    Ritter might have a more unique look, but at least she doesn't dress like one of my 60 year old mom's faux-hemian friends.

    Her performance as Jane on Breaking Bad remains a greater artistic achievement than anything Zooey has achieved thus far, at least in terms of acting.

    I had a feeling you would throw that at me and as a BB fanboy I totally agree with you, but she was in the hands of a great production, direction, script literally everything was in favour for her to put on a good performance.
    Ritter then moved on to comedy and while she is funny, she ain't close to Zoey comically and no near as charming.

    The same could be said of anyone and everyone on that show. That in no way negates the effectiveness of anyone's respective performance. So, yeah, that's sort of an odd non-point to make.

    Zooey's carefully calculated adorkable shtick has become pretty paint-by-numbers and there's nothing particularly inspired about it any more (though it's worth mentioning, I personally still find it enjoyable); meanwhile, Ritter is taking the daunting task of making one of the most despicable characters on all of television both disarming and oddly endearing.

    Also, Jess isn't even the funniest person on New Girl (here's looking at Schmidt, the sexual snowflake), while Chloe is totally the breakout, scenery-gnawing star on Don't Trust The B.

    I'm going to have to side with Ape in the "I ain't buying the quirky" stakes. If you are at all familiar with her film roles then you'll know that Zooey is doing nothing new. In fact, a while ago I recall mentioning that I didn't believe Deschanel could carry a weekly comedy show on her own - I stand by that now as they have strategically placed great characters/actors around her to even things out. What you are seeing, I believe Akbar, is the reflected funniness of others imposed upon Zooey. You just can't notice because you refuse to stop looking at her.

    I only watch the show now and then but I was chuffed to see that guy who played the building manager, Jeff someone....wait, it'll come to me, I refuse to look it up. But he was in China Beach and that awesome (when I was 16) movie, The Fifth Power. I bet Ape has seen that
