thank you for everything, Dr Lahiri!


If you've been reading this for a while you may have happened upon this post where I basically lost my mind when Fox stupidly cancelled The Mindy Project after only 3 seasons. That was truly such a terrible day for me but thanks to Hulu, who saved the show and gave it an extra 3 seasons, I have just watched the most perfect ending to the show.

I remember seeing the promo for the show for the first time, I had never heard of Mindy Kaling before but coming across a show where the lead is a rom com obsessed girl who I could relate to in ways was everything to 16 year old me because I hadn't felt this connected to a TV character since Betty Suarez, and this was 3 years after Ugly Betty had ended.

Over these 6 years there have been so many pivotal moments within this show, whether they be happy or just pure emotional. Since the pilot I have just loved the relationship between Danny and Mindy, watching them grow was so so amazing, I'm not even ashamed to say that I cried when they had their first kiss on the plane. It is such a beautiful scene that parallels a scene from season 1 which I really love but this time it pushes Danny to realise his true feelings. The downfall of their relationship after they have Leo was so hard for me to watch because as much as I love Danny I truly was hating him through those episodes. I'm so glad the finale addressed those issues and Danny and Mindy finally admitted they are both so clearly still in love with each other.

The final episode was honestly so beautiful, Morgan getting a happy ending by marrying Tamra (isn't it crazy Morgan wasn't in the pilot???) It also had a few fab parallels which include Mindy leaving the wedding on a bike and dodging the pool, it was such a great addition that took me straight back to the pilot and shows how much Mindy has grown since then, also Mindy running through the streets of New York to get to Danny just reminded me of Danny running to her in the season 2 finale.

I'm so thankful to Mindy Kaling for creating such a comedic masterpiece, for creating Dr Mindy Lahiri, who made life way more enjoyable even when I was feeling my worst, for Kaling and Lahiri being such amazing people to look up to. Without The Mindy Project, I would've never have watched The Office but I'm so glad I did! Reading Mindy's books I've seen just how much she put into getting her own show and I'm SO proud of how far shes come and will be watching EVERYTHING she is in in the future, because if it has Mindy in then it is bound to be amazing!

I've still not quite come to terms with the fact there will no longer be anymore episodes of the show but I'm so excited to re watch the show from the start and feel all of the feels all over again and getting people to watch as well (that's aimed at you mum!)

I hope you enjoyed this post and will come back for my next one! I really hope you start watching The Mindy Project because its just such an amazing emotional roller coaster everyone needs to ride! If you've watched it I'd love to know your thoughts on the finale, I hope you loved it as much as I did!

Recent TV Watches!


I feel like I haven't done a TV post in forever, so I thought it was time again seeing as I've started watching a few different shows so obviously need to tell somebody about it!

A homicide detective and mystery writer work together to solve murders in New York City. I am like fully obsessed with Castle recently, when I started it I didn't realise how much I would truly love it but I just haven't watched anything else since. It's a crime drama with a comedic twist and that is what makes it so great, so many aspects to it which all work together so well. Castle and Beckett are such a great pair and I'm just so engrossed in their relationship. You can watch this on NOWTV.

The Good Doctor

A young doctor with autism gets recruited into a surgical unit in a prestigious hospital. So far I have only watched the first episode but I really love it. Medical shows are my favourite and the Shaun's backstory is so heartbreaking that I was crying for pretty much the entire episode. I'm so excited to carry on watching and see everything that is to happen. You can watch this on NOWTV.

It follows two wealthy families as they feud over their fortune and children. Just like The Good Doctor, I have only watched the first episode of this (yes, I know...I'm slacking) but I am loving it! I had been looking forward to it for so long as I have loved Elizabeth Gillies since she was in Victorious and knew that this would be a great show especially since it was made by the same people who made Gossip Girl. I have such high hopes and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest. You can watch this on Netflix.

The Good Place

The Good Place is a town where people who have been good throughout their life go once they die, when Eleanor ends up there by accident she realises she has to change her ways and become 'good'. This show had such a weird concept but after a few episodes I was hooked, Kristen Bell is so great and the story line is so different to anything on TV right now that its so hard not to love it. There is a plot twist at the end of season 1 which is so great and something to look forward to! You can watch this on Netflix.

Law & Order: True Crime

It follows the story of the Menendez murders, where two brothers brutally murdered their parents in Beverly Hills in the 80's. I had never heard of this case until this show came out but I'm so glad I started watching it because it is honestly so gripping and such an interesting watch. You can watch this on NOWTV.

Image result for atypical
It follows an 18 year old with autism who decides to become more independent. I didn't realise how much I was going to love this show, it seemed like it would just be something I had on it the background but I just couldn't get enough. It was so heart warming and hilarious at the same time. I so hope there will be a season 2 because I was so in love and emotional by everything that had happened by the end of season. You can watch this on Netflix.

I hope you enjoyed this post and that you'll come back for my next one! I hope that you start watching at least one of these shows because they are honestly so great!
