Head Over Feels

We Just Have A Lot of Feelings

81 notes

We want the dream. And he is the dream, in so many ways. The Mindy Project has its name not only to make that instant connection to Kaling, but also to communicate that Mindy’s life is a work-in-progress. So is Danny’s. That’s why they will – at some point – work. And if we allow her her flaws because she’s a real (fake) human person, shouldn’t Danny get the same consideration? Dr. Castellano isn’t the Ken doll we get to bust out every time we need an Aaliyah routine or a Bridget Jones reading or an affirming comment about our bodies. He gets to be insecure and jealous and wounded too. (Go back and look at the expression on his face after he tells Mindy he attended a Suze Orman post-divorce workshop if you don’t believe me.) So, sorry if your Prince Charming came up short this time. Spoiler alert: they usually do.
