We've sort of done that, albeit not quite to the extent that we did it in S5M3. There's also been a substantial helping of "new character walks into the room, looks around, says 'you guys can chill out, I got this,'" which has kept the focus from moving around quite as much as you suggest. :)

Heh, depends on the period. On From Under the Cork Tree, for instance, it would've required a long-winded parenthetical subtitle. "First Dates and Firefights (It's Probably a Good Idea Not to Bring Your Mom Along For Either One)", for example.
