I just saw a negative headline about a show I am coming to love, New Girl. Their ratings are going down the headline read, so I want to put in a good word for this show.
I actually almost cancelled the series and now I’m glad I didn’t. Jess/Zooey Deschanel toned down her act and added more intelligence to her character, but it’s two of the guys that I’ve come to love the most, Schmidt and Nick, and of the two, I love Schmidt the most. I don’t even know how to explain Schmidt’s appeal and if you watch one show you probably won’t get the full sense of him. Actually, his character is a perfect example of how if you watched an episode or two and said, “no thanks,” you have to come back and give it another try. He developed.
UPDATE: Brilliant explanation of why we love Schmidt here.
All the characters are developing wonderfully, and I crack up regularly during the show. Honest-to-god laughing out loud even though I’m alone. The writers are doing such a great job. So please give this show a try. And Raising Hope.
Yet another shot of the Empire State Building from my roof. I’m sorry. But if you lived here you’d find it hard to resist taking a picture of it every time you saw it, too. I’d be in worse trouble if I had a view of the Chrysler Building.
