I loved tonight's episode of the Mindy Project. Mindy's unabashed love of the holidays with the music and colorful outfits set such a great tone for the show. Danny who is uninterested in the holidays comes to the party with an elaborate ginger bread house. He is the perfect foil to Mindy. He does care about her when trying to help her navigate a cheating crisis with grace. Mindy confronts Josh perfectly mimicking the voicemail. Danny saves Mindy during her speech becoming her knight in shining armor.
Ellie Kemper appears as Heather (not a fan of the character being named that), but she does a great crazy girlfriend who insults Mindy and destroys her house. It was genius to have Wham's Last Christmas as background music to when Mindy's friends are rallying around her to make her feel better. It's what the holidays are all about sharing, caring, and loving all that are special to us. This episode is proof that Mindy's show is hitting its stride, and I am only looking forward to more.
