iwanttobelikemindykaling asked: Your analysis of Christmas Party Sex Trap makes me wish that you wrote The Mindy Project reviews for the AV Club. So thoughtful and brought to light a lot of things I didn't think of. Thank you!
Thank you so much! :) It makes me so angry when people from AV club have no scope of what is going on in the show. Undoubtedly, it was worse whenever that guy Sims was writing for them (the biggest example I remember is his mistaking Mindy’s mimosa joke in Santa Fe), but they still call Tamra “Tamara,” or call Peter “Prentiss,” or completely miss the point of Danny’s saying no to Mindy in the Christmas scene.
I don’t think this show is high-brow, but it’s amazing how the AV club messes it up. (I actually think anyone who doesn’t want Mindy and Danny to get together is nuts, because there hasn’t been an episode that didn’t suggest it) That’s why I like writing about it so much—it’s very accessible comedy but the romance is definitely the best one on television right now (for me definitely ever, but I understand why people would say otherwise). Mindy and Danny are just so perfect for each other and that’s why they can have episodes where one minute she’s making fun of his shirt and the next he’s helping her across the street and the next he’s looking at her chest and the next he’s dancing for her and the next they’re about to kiss and the next he lets her go because he’s afraid she’ll regret it. He’s so protective of her but cares about her in every single way one person can love another, and that just gets me so much.
I’m sorry I’m rambling after your nice thing. Thank you so so much. That means a lot to me and I’m happy that you are enjoying my highly procrastinatey activity. :)
