"Sorry about that."
Mindy Project writer and star Ike Barinholtz says up front, apologizing for his part in Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny's (Chris Messina) shocking breakup last week.
"We got some little abuse on twitter, a little friendly abuse. But you know when that happens I kind of love that," Barinholtz tells TVGuide.com. "It just means that people are not only watching the show but are passionate about the show. And they really get invested in it enough to tweet, 'You bastard, how could you do this?!'"
On last week's winter finale, The Mindy Project made our dreams come true when Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (finally!) kissed. While we wait until the comedy returns on April 1, we thought we'd look back and see how Danny stacks up to Mindy's past love interests.
So check out our rankings below, from least dateable to the ultimate OTP.
FX's new comedy Chozen touts itself for featuring "the world's first gay, white, animated rapper," but star Bobby Moynihan says his character's sexuality never defines him.
"It's not what the show is about. It's not very heavy-handed on the politics or anything," the SNL star tells TVGuide.com. "There's a couple lines in the second episode where he wanders into an LGBT meeting and they're asking him if he's gay or bisexual and he says, 'Why are you trying to label us?' ... I feel like it's not such a crazy thing anymore and it shouldn't be."
Strong female characters are rarely allowed to be nuanced on TV. They don't get to be brilliant, vain or funny. They get to be strong (and maybe sexy, if they're lucky). They kick a--, overcome obstacles and rarely display any signs of feminine vulnerability. Often times, their strength is framed as the result of some "issue," (SVU's Olivia Benson troubled childhood, Sonya Cross' Asperger's on The Bridge), as though the women are only strong because a catalyst forced them to be this way.
But Mindy Lahiri doesn't have issues (well, she has issues, but not in that sense). She's a strong, well-developed comedic antihero on par with Michael Scott. But many Mindy Project viewers didn't warm to Mindy as quickly as they took to the equally offensive Office boss. "I think that [Mindy] is very resilient and very confident and until you see her display kindness or show rapport with other people, it's hard for an audience just to decide they love her," Mindy Kaling tells TVGuide.com, recalling the initial reaction to the character.
