This is my blog for all things Mindy Project related.
During winter hiatus it was the home of my 'Rom/Com Queue' and during summer hiatus I will have an 'All Things Jane Austen Queue.'
Please check out the episode guide, and character guide pages I just made :D (they took too long for no one to look at :O)
Absolutely. One of the main reasons I was drawn to watch the show at all, and probably one of the main things that makes other people watch (and buy her books and follow her on twitter, etc.) is the fact that she’s the kind of girl you want to know. Or she’s the kind of girl we want to be.
She’s beautiful, but she’s not “perfect” by industry standards. And she both admits to letting it affect her, and demands that the industry make room for her. (See her story about doing that photoshoot with Ellie Kemper.)
She’s smart and unapologetically so. She knows how to network. She’s smiles a lot, but make no mistake, she’s a shark. She’s making moves with absolute confidence and pursing goals with maximum intensity. I don’t want to think about how long her workdays are.
She doesn’t let anyone tell her that her pleasures are guilty pleasures. She likes what she likes and enthusiastically encourages other people to get involved.
She embraces people. She still hangs out with best friends she made over a decade ago. She speaks about her family with a great deal of love and respect. Relationships matter and it seems like she makes time to nourish them.
And she’s a storyteller at heart. She’s pursuing the best story, based on her personal sensibilities and years of being a consumer of lovestories herself. There are flaws in the show yet, but she’s never disappointed me with her storytelling decisions, which is why I’ll continue to put my trust in her every Tuesday night.
