Zooey Deschanel: She Makes Me "Adorka-phobic"

Posted by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey on Wed, Sep 21, 2011 at 1:29 PM

Adork-able?
  • "Adork-able?"
Anybody catch the series debut of New Girl last night on FOX? Ratings-wise this new non-laugh track sitcom CRUSHED the season premiere of Glee, yanking in a whopping 10.1 million viewers, making it the highest rated debut on FOX since Bernie Mac ten years ago.

For the uninitiated, New Girl stars actress/singer/dork Zooey Deschanel as an insanely socially awkward gal who moves in with three socially awkward dudes—and they get all socially awkward together. (Kind of like a normal day in our comments section.)

Anyway, a lot of people loved it, such as this guy from Boston.com:

She probably will conquer you, as she has me, by just being so darn Zooey-ish, her innocent beauty hidden in a mess of brown hair, nerd glasses, and personality quirks, which include bursting into song whenever so inspired. Unless you’re adorka-phobic, and suffer from an acute terror of ultra-lovable individuals, you will fall for Deschanel mightily and shamelessly.

I guess that makes me adorka-phobic (which I haven't been in the past) because for me, it was all too... too... goddamn precious, ya know? And while there were definitely a couple of good jokes, the tsunami of quirkiness is overwhelming. It's like she's Mayor Quirky McQuirkerstein, the grand marshal of the Annual Quirkytown Quirky Daze parade. SHE'S QUIRKY! Or as the always hilarious Joan Rivers put it on the most recent episode of Fashion Police:

Zooey Deschanel is so quirky, her clitoris is a Skittle.

That is so perfect, I have nothing left to add.
