The Leaves Change, and So Do My Scheduled Recordings on the DVR, Part 2

23 Oct

As a continuation of my two-part blog post about all the many shows I watched this fall, here are the final four (oh, I think understand college basketball all of a sudden). This batch includes my favorite and least favorite of all the programs I watched. I know you’re dying of curiosity, so read on!

“The Mindy Project” Fills the “30 Rock”-Size Hole In My Heart

2 May

The Mindy Project

When Mindy Kaling left The Office to pursue her own sitcom, I honestly thought that there was no way that she could create a better character than the one and only Kelly Kapoor. Kelly Kapoor was painfully funny, and had all the best lines. Yeah, yeah, Steve Carrell is a genius and Michael Scott was one of the best characters ever, but he never got to be quite as overly dramatic as Kelly.

Is “New Girl” the Funniest Show on Television?

New Girl

The great thing about the title of this post is that it implies that I think New Girl is the funniest show on television. But really, I’m just asking a question, therefore I am not confirming or denying that New Girl is funnier than, say, the new fall sitcom, Dads.*

*Full disclosure: this entire post is about how I think New Girl is the funniest program currently on television. I have not seen Dads, but I imagine that it’s absolutely horrific and not funny at all. Punny, maybe, but not funny.

The maybe not so great thing about the title of this post is that it could very well be polarizing for those Zooey Deschanel haters out there (you know who you are. You make up about 88% of the population). People either really love or really hate Zooey, and I’m sure that has affected the willingness for many to give New Girl a fair chance. For the remaining 22% of the population that finds Zooey tolerable (Why not 12%, you ask? Because I always like to give 110%. If we were in person, I’d wink at you right now), you are as obsessed with New Girl as I am, and this is a welcome topic. For the rest of you, just read this and I’m sure you’ll change your minds.

All the fall TVs!

Alex did such a great job covering all the comedies I’m looking forward to (Mindy! Liz! Leslie! Schmidt!), that I won’t take up valuable internet space with summaries of those shows too. But we know you need more shows to hibernate to, because it’s cold outside, and sitting inside where it’s warm is nice. Get yourself a pumpkin-flavored anything, and wrap yourself up in that old afghan that sat lonely and unused all summer long, because I’ve got even more recommendations to add to your Hulu queue.
