The Mindy Project: We Can Work it Out

Don’t mind me. I’m just over here totally blowing past the fact that it’s been about six weeks since I’ve posted. It’s not that I have a good excuse either – just a combination of laziness and other things taking hindu mindyprecedence. Oh well.

Back in January, I wrote a post about The
Mindy Project
– specifically about Mindy and Danny and their potential break-up. Now I’m back to write what I think is very much a follow up to that piece. And here’s the crux of what I have to say. I don’t think Mindy and Danny’s break-up (which was only a possibility during that last post, but has since very much come to pass) is the end of their story.

Watching this latest episode, “Bernardo & Anita,” and seeing the way Mindy and Danny handled wanting to expose Leo to different and possibly at times competing cultures really made me think that Mindy and Danny still have a chance. Yes, they decided to not only call off their engagement but to break up entirely, but I’m not counting them out yet. I’m not done rooting for them.

The Mindy Project: What a Girl Wants

sad mindyAfter getting back from my holiday break last weekend, I checked my Hulu queue and realized that I was behind a combined 50 episodes of all my shows. Seriously guys, what happened to me these last few months? FIFTY EPISODES?? And that doesn’t even include the Supergirl or Jessica Jones episodes I’ve got to finish, since neither of them are on Hulu. (One day, I dream I will have access to ONE streaming program that has EVERYTHING.) So really, it’s more like 60 episodes. I’m out of control.

To start wading through this outrageous backlog, I plunked myself down on Sunday evening after spending the day cleaning (seeing as two weeks of vacation at your parents’ house = coming home to deal with mold in the fridge) and caught up on the last five episodes of The Mindy Project. A small drop in the bucket, to be sure, but it’s a start.

The Mindy Project has been absolutely fascinating to watch this year. I’m not sure if it’s the move to Hulu that facilitated the change, but Mindy has been on quite an evolutionary journey this season, especially when it comes to Mindy’s relationship with Danny. Continue reading

The Mindy Project: All You Need is Love

I have to admit that for me, The Mindy Project has never quite reached mindy and dannythe status of appointment tv. Instead, it’s usually one that kind of piles up in my Hulu queue or my DRV list until I have lazy day to binge. That’s not to say it’s a bad show or I don’t like it. It consistently makes me laugh and leaves me feeling contented and upbeat after a marathon. It’s just that it’s not something I necessarily can’t wait for more of. I don’t think that’s a bad thing to say about it, or a bad way to feel about it. It’s solid. It’s like that work colleague who’s not in your department so you don’t hang out too much, but is always up to go for a coffee run with you if you need it (does anyone else have people like that?) You know, I’m not inviting you to my wedding, but I’ll probably make you a cupcake on your birthday. That kind of friend. That’s me and Mindy.

Now that we’ve got that settled, I will say that yesterday’s Season Four premier was one of the better episodes of the series. And not just because of what happened at then end (if you know what I mean….).
