Let me take you back to a few years ago — the year was 2012; the star was Mindy Kaling. Was I pumped about the premiere of The Mindy Project? Pumped is an understatement. After feasting upon the inspirational, hilarious Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns) I was excited about witnessing Mindy Lahiri — pop culture connoisseur, serial dater, and talented gynecologist — on my screen once a week.
A lot of things have changed since the premiere of The Mindy Project: Mindy's friends outside of her practice are long gone; the cavalcade of homogenous suitors is gone, too. But like, that's fine, because now all that remains are the best parts of Mindy: gut-busting office humor and a fresh take on personal and professional relationships; Mindy's growth as a fictional slash real life human being; and of course, Danny Freaking Castellano. We're halfway through season four, and it's shaping up to be the best season ever — I'd say in part because this is the show's first season on Hulu instead of its old home of Fox. It's both consistently funny and absolutely heart wrenching, which is basically all I ever ask for from a show.
What exactly makes this season of The Mindy Project top notch? Here are a few of my favorite things.
