For the third season in a row, Danny Castellano (Chris Messina) has made it nigh on impossible to watch The Mindy Project in company.
But let’s not kid ourselves ladies (and pertinent fellas), Dr. Dan would make a horrible boyfriend. Allow me to present my case using moving, captioned pictures.
1) He’s the worst kind of mama’s boy, AKA mama’s full-grown-employed-man-who-should-really-know-better.
2) He’s the office D-Bag, and on this show, that’s saying something.
3) Not super attentive.
4) He says things like THIS. To women. In public.
5) And lest we forget, he recently initiated this…
culminating in this traumatizing (for me) breakup.
To which he responded…
Well, as long as he’s sorry, right?
I should make it clear that these objection would carry a lot more weight if he wasn’t capable of this.
Actually, forget I said anything. Proceed with your regularly scheduled crushing.
If you watched the return of The Mindy Project this week, your first thought at the end of the episode was probably “It is now so obvious who Ellen is going to pick for the crush of the week.” Because duh.
As if his Christmas dance and airplane kiss weren’t enough, “Little D” had to go and read Bridget Jones’ Diary in a British accent. How am I supposed to resist that? It’s just not going to happen. Everything about who I am makes it physically impossible.
Over the course of the past few days, I have watched the new episodes…we’ll just say too many times, so really this choice was inevitable. But it was also inevitable because Danny Castellano is a curmudgeonly dreamboat. Just the way we like them (see also: Nick Miller).
Plus, his eyelashes are so long. Like a pony.
Believe me, I’m as shocked as anybody by this week’s object of our Fangirly affection. For most of this season I’ve been crushing on another Mindy Project dreamboat, Danny Castellano (Chris Messina), who is probably the toughest OB/GYN on TV. But this week, it was the show’s adorably doofy nurse Morgan (Ike Barinholtz) who caught my eye. What can I say, I have a thing for clueless guys in scrubs. Am I totally alone here, or is this guy bringing it, in all the weirdest ways?
