Let’s talk about The Mindy Project- Caramel Princess Time

This was EXACTLY what I needed after weeks of baseball games I don’t care about. I needed Mindy, Danny, Peter, Morgan, BRENDAN. You know, I just needed my pals back and to throw BRENDAN back in the mix was a fun surprise. In case you haven’t picked up on it yet, I love Brendan and Mark Duplass. Almost as much as I love Peter and Adam Pally.

So, then, let’s talk about Peter. I’ve loved watching him find himself these past two seasons. When we met him, he was a douche. He still is, don’t get me wrong, but at least he seems to be working on it. I’m really excited to see how this thing with Abby goes. Allison Tolman is great and Adam Pally is so goddamn hilarious and talented. They’ll be fun to watch. They already are.

Mindy is always late. Danny is always angry. It only makes sense that Dr. Fishman tells him he needs to go to Brendan’s seminar and come to term with his demons. AND HE DID! At first, that whole situation was hilarious. It definitely helped to have Morgan there. I don’t know if you know this, but Morgan/Ike Barinholtz is amazing. And when you throw him and Danny together, it’s magic. So, yeah, it started off pretty funny. But then, Danny actually broke down and told Brendan why he gets so angry when Mindy’s late. And it ripped my heart out. Dammit, Alan Castellano. You broke him and he’s just now getting put back together!

Mindy and Danny are STILL killing it in the couple game. I don’t know what they’re doing to make it work so well, but it is. There’s no Moonlighting curse going on here. Seriously, they’re growing and learning and fighting and making up and being together. They’re cute, they’re funny, they’re annoying, they’re sometimes ridiculous, but IT ALL WORKS.

Let’s talk about The Mindy Project- Christmas Party Sex Trap

I need to gather my thoughts. This is too much. Danny. Cliff. Danny. Cliff. DANNY!

Okay.

I’ll say it again; I love Cliff and I have been rooting for him since day one. But Danny broke my heart in this episode. He can try and be a thoughtless ass all he wants, but he CHOREOGRAPHED A DANCE for Mindy. And then he almost kissed her. And then Peter and Jeremy ruined it all in the most perfect way possible.

This episode revolved around a building wide Christmas party that Mindy organized just to get her and Cliff together. Apparently, their building is full of taxidermists, though, so the party had a weird vibe. Made even weirder by being both gluten and alcohol free. Tamra has Celiac Disease and Peter has a drinking problem that leads him to having sex with Christmas trees. Continuity hasn’t always been this show’s strong point, but they brought in this fact from Peter’s very first episode, so I appreciated that.

Since he has a drinking problem and Jeremy’s skinny again (thanks to something called The Center), they decide to be sober buddies. It all goes to hell, though, when Peter sets his sights on Maria Menounos (Brendan’s new girlfriend/ex-girlfriend?) and Jeremy gets a taste of some frosting. Peter thinks he needs the liquid courage and the only way to get alcohol is to drink it from Mindy’s bra (obviously) and Jeremy ends up eating Danny’s second annual gingerbread house. It was the Monticello and he was very proud of it. And he decorated it wearing those amazing/ridiculous red, wrap around glasses.

So, this is what ruined the Danny/Mindy moment that almost led us to a kiss. SO CLOSE. And he did it all despite the fact that Mindy had an elaborate plan to lure Cliff away from Heather. Oh, Danny. And he called her Min, which is just about my favorite thing ever.

Mindy’s plan was crazy, but, being The Mindy Project, it worked. Not the way she imagined, but she got a kiss with Cliff outside in the lightly falling snow. While Danny looked on from his office window. See? Heartbroken.
