    Schmidt is the Reason to Binge Watch ‘New Girl’ This Holiday Season

    ‘Tis the season for binge-watching. I revisited New Girl during my break and, once again, fell in love with Schmidt (played by Max Greenfield) and his witty comments. I was reminded that he’s lovable, funny, absurd and just the right amount of douchiness.

    When I sat down to watch my first ever episode of the FOX comedy, I was watching strictly for Zooey Deschanel (weren’t we all?). Now that the show has ended, it’s Jessica Day’s roommate that I can’t get enough of. Schmidt always delivers the best one-liners and he does so in a way that no one else can.
