This show is definitely suffering from a case of overcomSchmidting to an ensemble character. While Schmidt is definitely the scene stealer of the show, and the one guy who snagged an Emmy nomination, his character is a lovable douchebag who is best dealt with in small doses. Last night's episode, "Neighbors," was centered around him and that much focus is starting to make us forget why we liked him in the first place. While it was Jess who befriended the slackers across the hall, and Nick who did the lion's share of the pranking, Schmidt was the one who wanted in with the young people and who was also the prankee. As for poor Winston, he continued to mainly be in his own separate little radio storyline that is so poorly integrated with the rest of the show that it comes across like one of the trailers in Grindhouse. "The Secret Life of Winston," coming next fall to Fox?
