I know it's foolish to judge a show based on a 3-minute trailer, but I have a feeling that this show is going to be next season's Breaking In: a show that I enjoy watching because it's fun, not because it's funny.
The only Zooey Deschanel movies I've seen are (500) Days of Summer and Surf's Up. I liked her in both, although, to be fair, the latter was a voiceover role. So, I don't have any irrational hatred for her, but I'm not all hung up on her cute quirkiness either.
I kind of wish that there was a way for Damon Wayans Jr. to be on both this show and Happy Endings. But of course, that's impossible, so I'm hoping that they find a suitable replacement. I like the other two roommates though, especially the one played by Jake M. Johnson. Hannah Simone was utterly flat in the trailer; maybe that's the point, or maybe she'll surprise me when the episode airs.
In any case, I'm definitely checking this one out. Worst comes to worst, it'll just be something else to snark about.
