My new Netflix obsession…

Here’s the problem with me: when I find a new show I like, I watch it non-stop until there’s no new episodes or I have to wait week-by-week for a new one. Alas, I’m having that issue again as I obsess over “The Mindy Project”.

One of my best friends mentioned to me in a text a few weeks ago that I should watch it and that it’s hilarious. I don’t usually make time for shows and end up re-watching episodes of “Friends” that I can quote from the top of my head now. However, I was working from home over the weekend and I was really bored and I wasn’t in the mood to watch “Friends,” for once. So, I decided to watch “The Mindy Project” and see how I liked it.

The verdict is: I’m in love with this show! It’s so witty, cute and Mindy Kaling is so awkwardly hilarious, which is something I can relate to (the awkward – not the funny (maybe I’m funny… I’m bracketing my brackets… that’s awkward)). Her character is so incredibly flawed, but definitely relatable. I’ve found myself in similar situations or said similar things as her character, which makes me laugh even more. I’m already on season two and I’m having trouble pacing myself so I don’t run out of episodes before the new season starts. I predict I’ll be finished season three by next week…

Side note: the show was pulled from its network recently due to poor ratings, but due to a huge fan following, Hulu has decided to pick up season four. Here’s hoping they don’t pull it from that as well!

Maybe it’s because I’m a girl and I love it, but I would like to know if guys are as obsessed with this show as much as I am. Yes, the show does deal with a lot of girly issues, but I think the comedy itself is pretty gender neutral.

Lastly, I am such a fan of Mindy Kaling that I ended up ordering her book “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” (thanks to free shipping – no minimum on Chapters). I hope the book is as funny as her show!
