New Girl “Bully” Review

Of all the episodes of New Girl so far, "Bully" will probably go down as my least favorite. Sure, important overall plot stuff happened, but when compared to the other laugh-out-loud half-hours we’ve been treated to, this one came up just a little bit short.

Let’s start with my favorite non-couple who are totally hooking up…CeCe and Schmidt. After last week’s one-night-stand, the sex train hasn’t derailed yet, although CeCe is doing everything in her power to hide their affair and Schmidt is totally going along with it for obvious reasons.

For all of his outrageousness, Schmidt is a deeply caring guy who just wants to be loved. And for all of her prickly defenses, CeCe is a pretty girl who wants to be appreciated for more than her body. They’re sort of perfect for each other, if Schmidt could just take it down a notch.
