  1. I want to defend Project Mindy though I’m not in love with it or anything. It’s just that I didn’t hate it and feel like it has a lot of potential to be a fun and enjoyable show. For what it’s worth in the three episodes I’ve seen of Project Mindy I feel like it’s steadily improving with the second episode aired (apparently the fourth episode shot) the strongest/funniest (Beth Grant plays an insane nurse and she’s hilarious) I don’t recall there being any theme music in the first episode but in the last two episodes the theme music seems to have changed from how Scott described it . I’m actually feeling more similarities to New Girl which it’s paired with than Girls and I LOVE NEW Girl so I’m going to give it at least a season but I actually really like Mindy Kaling so she’s a huge draw for me. Mindy herself isn’t the most likable character but they do seem to be fleshing er out more as the show goes on (she’s trying to be taken more seriously at her job and a better friend, things like that) and they seem to be fleshing out the side characters too to make it more of an ensemble show so I feel like it has a pretty good chance of turning into something really good with time.

  2. I believe you we’re referring to Dante’s Inferno a part of Virgil’s Divine Comedy during your Murder by Death discussion.
