If you’re a fan of “The Mindy Project,” then you might have been on a roller coaster of sorts in the past 2 weeks. With the sad news of its cancellation, and then the exciting news that the show had been picked up by Hulu, I myself have been so confused.
In wake of these emotional, and somewhat traumatic events (I really love the show), I’ve decided that it was time that I write about my favorite “The Mindy Project” moments and characters. Mindy Kaling is by far one of my favorite writers and actresses, and it is only right that her talent be acknowledged on my blog.
1. When she and Danny finally became an item!
We were all waiting for it to happen, and it finally did. After season after season of playful, borderline insulting banter, Danny and Mindy finally got into a (somewhat) serious relationship, and made all of our hearts melt. Their relationship was (and still is) perfect. Mindy with her witty remarks and extensive knowledge of pop-culture, and Danny with his die-hard Yankee fan, true to New York demeanor, they make the perfect couple.#relationshipgoals
2. When she firmly believed that she had the right to life, liberty, and chicken wings.
She had her priorities in perfect order. It really ain’t no thing but a chicken wing.
3. When Diamond Dan made an appearance.
We all know and love Dr. Danny Castellano, but Dr. Castellano as a stripper? I think that speaks for itself.
4, When Mindy taught us that confidence is the most beautiful feature a woman can have, all in the first episode.
She is the most confident woman on TV and in real life, in my opinion. On top of her list of talents, both Lahiri and Kaling are women who inspire others to believe in themselves, chase their dreams, and to kick-ass everyday. Both the character and the real life Kaling have inspired me to not only believe in myself in the best possible way, but have inspired me to chase after career goals that I would never have imagined I would be chasing three years ago.
5. Any and everything Dr. Peter Prentice says.
Like all the characters, Peter Prentice has some excellent one liners. Prentice, however, takes it one step further because he shows that he cares in the oddest of odd ways, and we can’t help but love it. With his frat boy charm, Peter Prentice deserves a place on this list.
