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.
