Analyzing Financial Realism in Media

New Girl (2011-2018)

TV shows and movies should do a better job of portraying people living within the realistic means of their income or wealth level.

This short video analyzing realism on television features New Girl, an offbeat show about friends in their early 30s living in modern LA with a focus around a large loft apartment that many characters share.

Spoiler Alert for all seasons of New Girl.
