Spoiler Alert! Shippers live for the payoff, and in 2013, fans of NCIS, Suits, Castle, Parks and Recreation, and Bones got the ultimate with a goodbye kiss, angry first-time sex in the file room, a proposal, a surprise wedding, and a long-awaited wedding, respectively. (Sorry, Downton Abbey fans, that your Mary and Matthew bliss was so short-lived. Ditto, Sons of Anarchy fans, who watched Tara and Jax finally reconnect, which only made her exit all the more painful.)
For other viewers though, the yearning continues. Here are 10 moments from 2013 that will keep shippers hanging on and tuning in.

Rory O’Malley says he doesn’t worry about being typecast in gay roles. “I definitely don’t get leery about being typecast. I just love being cast… I love playing gay characters. I think it’s fantastic that there have been these rich gay characters for me to do… They’re fully-formed people, with points of view, and something different to bring to the story.”
HBO is developing a series on the club scene in South Beach called Club Life: Miami from producers John Singleton and Russell Simmons. Based on the locale and the involvement of Simmons, I think it’s safe to say we can expect some gay content if it goes to series.

Christmas didn't just come early for The Mindy Project this week; we got a gift from Danny (Chris Messina) too. For his Secret Santa present to Mindy (Mindy Kaling), he learned and performed a fierce dance to Aaliyah's "Try Again" (which he explained was the song that Mindy played when they first met and annoyed him). The dance is incredible - from Danny's moves (how long did it take Messina to learn those, anyway?) to the way he and Mindy gaze at each other during and right afterward. Their sexual tension may be a slow burn, but this week, there are sparks aplenty. Watch the dance now! »

On last night's Mindy Project, Maria Menounos may have stolen Mindy's spotlight by stealing her sexy version of "Santa Baby," but Chris Messina (as Dr. Danny) stole both of their spotlights by gifting Mindy with a Secret Santa gift made of dance moves. Specifically the ones from Aaliyah's "Try Again" video. He is a fantastic dancer.Was that the real choreography from Aaliyah's video? Duh: »

If at first you don’t succeed at Secret Santa-ing, do like Danny: Dust yourself off and try again!*
Warning: May cause heart-melt.
According to Danny, Mindy’s constant replaying of Aaliyah’s “Try Again” was one of the very first things about her that truly annoyed him. He must find himself quite unbearable by now, because the man is a Genius Aalyiah Impersonator.
(The reaction shots of Mindy are romantic and all, but why would you ever cut away from his brilliance?!)
They almost kissed after this, but Adam Pally had to bust in and ruin the moment »

Who doesn't love a Grg? That would be a grand romantic gesture, for those of you not raised on a healthy diet of romantic comedies and unrealistic relationship ideals. Sure, we know they are completely ridiculous and could never happen in real life, but we can't help but swoon over one on the small screen. And tonight, The Mindy Project fans should prepare to see jaded cynical divorcee Danny Castellano's (Chris Messina) version of a romantic gesture for Mindy (Mindy Kaling). We've seen the episode, which also serves as the Fox sitcom's Christmas episode, and we have one tip for you: Gird your loins now. And in honor of Danny's epic move, we've compiled a list of some of our favorite »
If you, like this reporter, are thankful this holiday season for The Mindy Project and the comedy gold it delivers each week, the following is for you. And if for some reason you aren’t tuning into Fox’s rom-com-drenched sitcom, well… for shame (and you should read on as well).
Mindy found its funny footing by the end of its first season, but its sophomore run has taken the laughs to another level — something co-star and writer Ike Barinholtz attributes to good ol’ fashioned timing.

Move over, Mistletoe. This Tuesday’s The Mindy Project (9:30/8:30c, Fox) shines a spotlight on a new Christmas aphrodisiac — the Wine Rack Flask Bra.
The set-up: In an effort to circumvent Shulman & Associates’ alcohol-free holiday party — a restriction put in place out of respect to their sauce-addled colleague Peter — Dr. Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) attempts to smuggle in two bottles of vino inside her bra.

The elusive “Golden Ticket”. Beginning next Wednesday (December 4th) in a wave of four announcements, is when the official word comes out. Plenty of filmmakers are already in the know, but some will find out over the course of this Thanksgiving weekend. Having covered the festival and fest circuit for some time now, we’re already aware that worthy films that were indeed submitted will be excluded from the ’14 edition. Thousands of filmmakers won’t get the phone call, and while it can bruise dreams, this is not a rejection of quality…but rather, a preference from a programmer/programming team which reflects a larger mandate. John Cooper, Trevor Groth et al. have a difficult job and the way I see it, it’s the equivalent to draft day for a major professional sport – where a team in a given turn doesn’t go for the consensus pick, but instead »

His only ever appearance at the festival was with 2005′s The Squid and the Whale. Be a nice, unexpected “surprise” if Noah Baumbach returns with a project, which has been very tight-lipped to say the least. Production began in December of 2012 in NYC at Barnard College, and much like Frances Ha, once again employs cinematographer Sam Levy and Greta Gerwig in the acting capacity. ThePlaylist folks were expert sleuths on this one - supplying much of the info below.

It’s with his previous acting gig on the microscopic, Sundance preemed 28 Rooms (produced by Lynette Howell – Jamie Patricof’s business partner at their current prod. house) that certainly allowed for his creative input to shine thru, and land him his first directing gig. Production began in July for the still untitled drama which brings back the amazing Elizabeth Winstead (from Smashed). Chris Messina does double duty here with Julianna Guill, Don Johnson and Derek Luke in the fold as well. It’ll be tight to meet the deadline – but not impossible.
Gist: Written by Jessica Goldberg, Katie Nehra and Justin Shilton, this is about a workaholic attorney, Alex (Winstead) is forced to reinvent her life after her husband suddenly leaves. Now faced with the humdrum and sometimes catastrophic events that permeate the fabric of our lives, Alex discovers both a vulnerability and inner strength she had not yet tapped »

If they grace the festival with their presence, it would be like having the Beatles show up (Frederick Wiseman is our Elvis). Legendary docu-team Chris Hegedus and D. A. Pennebaker haven’t presented a doc film at the fest since 1987′s Jimi Plays Monterey (Update: they actually showed up in back-to-back years with Startup.com (2001) and Only the Strong Survive) and the pair have participated as jurors/panelists as well. Their new project, which received some coin via the 2013 Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund, is a hot topic issue/last frontier, that may be aligned with Sundance’s unwritten mandate for docu films that push social boundaries.

In every great rom-com, the leading man always has that one eye-opening moment. You know, the one where he realizes the girl who's been right in front of him this entire time is "the one." And in The Mindy Project's Tuesday night episode, Danny Castellano (Chris Messina) finally experience the moment with his fellow Ob-gyn and perennial witty thorn in his side Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling). All it took was Mindy pretending to be his pregnant girlfriend and a forced hug for Danny to see Mindy in a new light. Too bad her eye is currently on lawyer Cliff (Glenn Howerton). So what's a jaded, cynical divorcee to do? We chatted with the Fox hit sitcom's executive producer Matt Warburton and »
The Mindy Project's second season is in full swing, and as funny as it's been, things look even more entertaining off camera.

It’s been the great debate among Mindy Project fans since midway through Season 1: Should the Fox charmer (airing Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c) pull the trigger on a rom-com-worthy love story between platonic pals Mindy Lahiri and Danny Castellano?
While series mastermind Mindy Kaling herself is still up in the air when it comes to officially “going there” with her alter ego and Chris Messina‘s adorable curmudgeon of a doc (“I’m not even 100 percent sure that they should be a romantic couple”), she certainly has some thoughts on the topic.

Bust out the blue meth because it's time to celebrate: Anna Gunn, a.k.a.Skyler White, the badass, no-nonsense, long-suffering (and despised on the Internet) wife of a meth kingpin on "Breaking Bad," has booked a new gig: she's guest-starring on a new episode of "The Mindy Project." Well, maybe the meth is a bad choice. But this is cool news regardless.
According to E! Online, Gunn will play "the Tory Burch of Manhattan Ob/GYNs," and Mindy Lahiri's personal idol, Sheila Hamilton. Dr. Hamilton treats New York's rich and famous, and the glamorous Sheila will try to poach Mindy from Schulman & Associates, which doesn't go over well with Danny (Chris Messina) and Jeremy (Ed Weeks).
Apparently Mindy will love the attention -- at first. But something tells us Mindy won't be able to leave her pals for too long. Sheila will show up in "The Mindy Project's" 13th episode. »
A high-profile doctor who treats an exclusive clientele made up of New York's rich and famous, the glamorous, powerful and philanthropic will try and poach Mindy from Danny (Chris Messina), Jeremy (Ed Weeks) and the rest of the gang over at Shulman & Associates. Naturally, Mindy loves the attention. Well, at first she does anyway! Gunn recently won her first Emmy for her work as Walter White's (Bryan Cranston) long-suffering wife Skyler on AMC's beloved drama. Prior to ber big win, Gunn had penned an op-ed defending her polarizing character, writing, "As an actress, I realize that viewers are entitled to have whatever feelings they want about the characters they watch, but as a human being, I'm »
No offense to Kris Humphries, but The Mindy Project‘s Danny is about to get a real bro.
Kaling posted a photo (at right) — titled “The Brothers Castellano” – of herself, co-star Chris Messina and Minghella to her Instagram account Monday.
Minghella proved himself a fan of the show at the end of last season, when he tweeted Kaling that an episode was like “a master class in romantic comedy. »
