Mary Elizabeth Winstead,
Mindy Kaling's contribution to NBC's 'The Office' is the humor of discomfort, immaturity and blissfully ignorant victory. 'House Poor' taps into this rich vein of ouch humor. I saw some you tube videos of Mindy walking the Writer's Strike line in LA, so I was drawn into the premise of a successful young woman who recently purchased a home, and finds her steady stream of income interrupted. The economy's in a slump, everyone could use a little support. Call your girlfriends (Meredith! Busy!). I was ready for some bonding and commiserating. In short, Mindy dug a hole, spread some leaves and branches over it, and waited for me to come along...unaware. Ouch.
