I’ll just get straight to the point, I wanted to leave this in overanalyzingtelevision's asks, but it's obviously too long. I just love her opinions on The Mindy Project so much. But anyone else who wants to give their viewpoint on this is more than welcomed to do so.
So here’s what I’m thinking and hoping may be addressed in season 3 of The Mindy Project…
A) People are so often too nice to me on this website. This is one of those times. Thank you so much for your kind words; as a writer, it means the world to me.
B) I need to get to my asks. I am the worst.
C) I 1000000000000000% agree with you about both points. I have such a bad memory with interviews, but it was definitely one between May and now—from my memory, early on—when Mindy K spoke about the connection between Mindy Lahiri and Brendan and how they left that on such an interesting note, that there was more there than other people might have initially assumed. (Coupled with the little piece of deleted scene in the gag reel, where Mindy is consoling Brendan for advice, it seems like a plot thread that could plausibly return).
As for Jeremy and Mindy’s past, I’m stunned it hasn’t come up in the past season. I loved their relationship in season 1, especially in “Hooking Up is Hard.” I loved that their previous sex life made them comfortable with each other in a way that Mindy and Danny could not have been, because with Jeremy and Mindy any sexual tension was totally spent. Morgan and Mindy are less equals in Mindy’s eyes, and Jeremy has the potential to make Danny jealous within the office, so I’d really like that avenue to be explored, or for Danny to go to Jeremy (reluctantly) for advice.
I actually think you honed in on two exes I think that could have a ton to say about Mindy and Danny, or put them in interesting places. I also think Josh would be fun to bring back—he was the first one to call it. (I think Casey’s plot has been pretty much spent, but we’ll see)
