I have a new favorite TV show - The Mindy Project. Obviously, I realize this show is not new, however I'm trying to unload my queue of crime shows, and substitute in a few lighter comedies that don't leave me worried or frightened to fall asleep before bed (as most of my current crime shows usually do). I'm thinking this is a good plan...
Anyway, I've always been a fan of Mindy Kaling. I enjoyed her as Kelly Kapoor in the Office, I read her book, so I'm figuring, it was only a matter of time before joining the ranks of her TV followers. First, I enjoy all the characters; especially her love/hate interest; Chris Messina (a.k.a. Danny Castellano), loved him initially as the doting husband in Julie & Julia. Plus, I can relate to Mindy's characters obsession with rom coms. Pretty sure I own every movie she recites dutifully throughout the first few episodes, (You've Got Mail, Notting Hill, Sleepless in Seattle, should I go on?).
Alright, I think I've made my pitch. If you haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet, watch the pilot, it's supremely entertaining.
