— While it was sad that The Mindy Project’s second season came to an end last night, it was an amazing ending with Danny (Chris Messina) racing to the top of the Empire State Building to profess his love to Mindy (Mindy Kaling). Kaling spoke to Vulture about the Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve Got Mail mash up, check it out here.
Meanwhile, Vulture thinks that the show should reboot itself next season. I agree that Ike Barinholtz’s Morgan has grown on me (as well as his hooking up with Xosha Roquemore’s Tamra), he’s definitely a keeper but I’d also keep Peter (Adam Pally) around. It was also ready announced that Zoe Jarman (Betsy) won’t be coming back as a regular next season – maybe Mindy’s relationship with Danny will push Betsy to find her a new job? When I did see the headline that a cast member was leaving the show, I was worried it was going to be Ed Weeks (Jeremy), who hasn’t really had much to do this season (it was all about over-eating for Jer).
Also, can we stop using the term “rebooting”? The concept is great but should always keep things fresh from season to season. Networks and producers shouldn’t be afraid to shake things up each year creatively.
PS: Mindy was on Late Night with Seth Meyers, where she and Seth discussed mute-cutes (and all the men her character gets).
