More Unabashed Fawning Over Mindy Kaling

More Unabashed Fawning Over Mindy Kaling I love me some Office, but my one complaint is that there isn't nearly enough of Kelly Kapoor, aka Mindy Kaling, whom I find delightful and hilar-ville. Hearing her winsome voice exclaim "Fashion show at lunch!" will just never get old, people. Which is why I'm stoked to start supplementing my Office viewing with a new web series I discovered (with the help of Jezebel) starring -- you guessed it -- one Ms. Kaling. Based on the name of the site that hosts it, I've gleaned that much of the content was developed during the writers' strike and ended up a sort of repository for projects that creative writer types worked on to keep their minds agile when they couldn't do their regular jobs. (Note: In perusing the site I also came across a web series called Global Warming, starring my imaginary best friend Kristen Wiig and The Daily Show's Aasif Mandvi, which looks promising, but I did not watch it. Just sayin'.)

Anycase, as you'll see from the three minutes-plus first episode, the series, House Poor, is about the (presumably at least partially autobiographical) trials Mindy faces after purchasing her first home. And hey! This one features Busy Phillips! Watch it apr├ęs le jump. (That's French.)

I Heart Mindy Kaling

I Heart Mindy Kaling I'd always suspected Mindy Kaling was the tits. Her portrayal of awesome-town valley girl Kelly Kapoor on The Office is waaay up my alley and down my street, as the saying goes. Who could fail to see the genius of her exhortation, "Fashion show at lunch!"?? Only an idiot. My love for Kaling was deepened when I was introduced to her personal blog, Things I've Bought That I Love, which reveals her to be the best kind of girlie girl -- the kind who's unapologetic about liking pretty things but also funny and smart enough to justify her taste with explanations other than "yay, pink!" (Incidentally, I know you've been busy with your real job, Minders, but please update that shiz! For me?)

The Mindy Project: A Work in Progress

<I>The Mindy Project</I>: A Work in Progress

There have been some absolutely dreadful new sitcoms so far this season (Partners/Animal Practice), but I'm happy to say that The Mindy Project isn't one of them. While it doesn't quite live up to the expectations and the hype (given the buzz surrounding the fact that it's from, and stars, Mindy Kaling), it by no means should be mentioned in the same breath as last season's Are You There, Chelsea? and Whitney. This show has a bit of charm, and while it got off to an underwhelming start, there's definitely some potential there.

When one show ends, another great show must begin.
