New Girl "Neighbors" Review - HHS: Hipsters Hate Schmidt

Last night's episode of New Girl, "Neighbors," may have not been as consistently funny as the show's first three episodes this season. However, it still provided plenty of laughs and continued to display the growth and strength of New Girl, which has become, in my opinion, one of the best comedies on TV.

"Neighbors" primarily focuses on Jess and Schmidt and their interactions with the new "hipster" neighbors who had just moved in across the hall. Schmidt jumps at the opportunity to impress the hipsters (because he believes that they think he is too old) at a "chill-hang" that they are having, but he fails miserably and Jess, for once, is the "cool" member of the gang. With her new part-time job at the Casserole Shanty (where a large crisis is needing more beans for casserole dishes), Jess feels quite comfortable and happy with this slouchy group of friends. For the first time, Jess is part of the "in-crowd," while Schmidt is on the outside. This new dynamic proves to be quite interesting, because it leads to Schmidt and Jess having a tense conversation, where he expresses how he always tries so hard , while she has simply given up. Jess tries to stand up for herself, stating how it wasn't her choice to leave her job; she was fired. However, by the episode's end, this conversation proves to be just what she needs, as she quits her job at the Casserole Shanty and heads to an interview for a new tutoring position. It's great to see Jess finally getting back into the teaching game, and I'm happy that Schmidt is the one to help her. As New Girl has shown countless times throughout its run, Jess excels with her creativity and passion as a teacher, and even when her students may not exactly love it, we as an audience sure do. Also New Girl continues to make Schmidt into more than the just the typical "douchebag" roommate. He clearly cares about Jess as a friend and wants her to strive to do better because he knows that she can be. Read More...
