MOON CHILD

Hello Babes!

As you all know I love all things fashion, entertainment and food related. Ok, you might not know it because…well, you don’t know me. And it’s not ALL.

But I digress. So I have,and I’m not afraid to say–mostly because it’s not something embarrassing for once–that I have hopped on the Girls  bandwagon and am willing to ride that shit like the Slumdog Millionaire boys! I resisted because, well, who says I can’t watch marathons of 16 andPregnant and still be a sassy, intelligent modern woman! Plus I ‘m pretty sure it accounts for half the reason I’m not stuck in a small apartment with fours roommates and my six freakishly beautiful but tyrannical children. The other half is split between the Pill and creative ambition.

So, I blame two entities for my newfound obsession–trust me that’s saying a lot considering Friends topped my television chart for the last 15 years (kind of…

Recap of “Two to One” – The Mindy Project

Who didn’t love the Mindy Project last week? Last week’s Mindy definitely took on the injustices of sexism and gender inequality in the workplace in a comedic lens. The episode first starts off with Mindy being overworked and delivering babies late at night. Later, Mindy and her two colleagues, Danny and Jeremy find out that their boss, Marc Shulman has decided to leave his practice and requested that these three MDs run the practice in partnership. Danny and Jeremy, however, take advantage of their 2 male majority over Mindy and decide to make all the executive decisions without her such as putting Jeremy’s face on the advertisements. Mindy keeps pointing out that she is a head doctor in this practice as well and she should put in her views how the practice should run but Danny and Jeremy keep putting her off. For example, she wanted Shulman’s office to become a research and service center focusing on pre-natal care for their pregnant women. Instead, Danny and Jeremy decide to turn that room into storage. Then they tell Mindy to go have her “best friend” day with her girlfriends. After many attempts of insisting she should stay in the office and help reorganized the leadership structure, Mindy decides to give in and go shopping with her girlfriends.

Danny and Jeremy, however, face a bigger challenge in the office as they start losing their patients to a midwifery service in the floor above them who uses natural/organic and non-medical methods to help women give birth. They unsuccessfully attempt to gain back their patients by not transferring the patients’ files to the midwives’ office and aggressively demanding their patients they stay with them (well Jeremy tries to seduce them). Danny and Jeremy even try to talk to the midwives and even insult them…however that didn’t work either. Jeremy then admits that maybe they should let Mindy handle this issue. Not wanting to lose his pride and ego, Danny keeps denying that they need Mindy. However, the receptionist, Betsy quietly contacts Mindy while she is shopping to beg her to avert the disaster in the office.

Mindy, however, ignores Betsy’s requests…until she finds out that her patient transferred to the midwifery service…that’s where Mindy realizes she needs to be the one to save the practice and get back their patients. She immediately returns to the office and gathers the staff and they march right up to the midwifery office and tell those midwives who is the boss by intelligently stating the facts and procedures of midwifery versus delivering a baby via OBGYN.  They came in with a bang (literally!). Mindy specifically points out with even the support of the midwife that if there are complications at birth, midwives still would tell their patients to go to an OBGYN. As a triumphant result, Mindy gets back the patients for their practice…and Danny finally gives in realizing the importance of Mindy’s contribution and even takes up her idea of turning  Shulman’s office into a pre-natal research and service center for their patients. Goes to show, when women are in charge, they get things done! Looking forward to tonight’s episode!

Interesting thoughts…did not know Darren Criss is part Filipino part Chinese and Harry Shum Jr. was born in Costa Rica and Jenna was adopted! Hope Ryan Murphy should make stories out of that!

Multi Cultural Cooking Network

Although, we have featured many stories on cast members of Glee we are not Gleeks.   Why have we done story after story on cast members of Glee over the years?  The cast is so multi-cultural in comparison to many other shows on television.  That is refreshing.  Having worked in the casting department of several shows, I am definitely sensitive to the subject.  As a writer, I do think that Glee fails miserably when it comes to writing for African Americans and  it has some casting issues too.  It is my Achilles heel, one for each foot  but I am not going there today.  Let’s stay positive and simply recognize the cast.  In today’s society more than ever in the United States, you can’t judge a book by its cover.

For instance to look at the very popular Darren Criss, you think “White Boy.”  Well, you would be partly…

The Moth Chase

After a couple of weeks without a new episode, The Mindy Project returned with improved focus. The opening sequence of Mindy playing the part of a woman from every romantic comedy–dressed in her lover’s button-down and acting adorable–got turned on its head when Josh accidentally put on Mindy’s jeans and wondered why they had so much room in the waist and rear…and so many Jolly Ranchers in the pocket.
