So I had never even heard of New Girl before the pandemic. I guess I was living under a rock cause this show had been running for years and is absolutely hilarious.
Basically what happened was when I returned from my semester abroad (early) I had to quarantine with my sister (happy birthday today btw) for 2 weeks and while I was jet lagged with zero motivation to get on a normal schedule we would sit on the couch for days on end just binging this show. It was absolutely hysterical. I want to thank Geena for showing me this show because it’s like up there to me with The Office and It’s Always Sunny in terms of re-watchability and just like laugh out loud moments.
One thing that I couldn’t get over when watching the show is just the crazy cameos that appear in basically every episode.
Like legit some of the biggest celebrities are in this show. Just off the top of my head I can think of some huge stars on the show:
- Bill Burr
- Clayton Kershaw
- Rob Riggle
- Kareem Abdul-Jabar
- Taylor Swift
- Jessica Biel
- Henry Winkler
- Gordon Ramsay
- J.B. Smoove
And of course: Prince (RIP) in one of the crazier episodes of the entire show.
This is a pretty small list of the people that I can’t even begin to think of all the other celebs that were on this show throughout the 7 seasons. It’s almost like every episode someone would show up and I’d be like “wtf how is he/she in this show”.
And this doesn’t even get into the other cameos of recurring characters like Megan Fox and Damon Wayans Jr.
New Girl has been a great time consumer of the quarantine and is for sure one of those shows that I never expected would become one of my favorites.
I’d love to know your favorite cameos from the show!
