'The Mindy Project' Showrunner Ranks Mindy's Top Boyfriends (Guest Column)

Seth RogenTimothy Olyphant. Seth Meyers. Josh Meyers. Tim Daly. Ne-Yo

The list of Mindy Lahiri's love interests on The Mindy Project is nothing if not diverse. Over six seasons and 117 episodes of the Fox-turned-Hulu comedy, the love life of Mindy Kaling's rom com-loving alter ego has been a rollercoaster of surprising hookups, bad breakups and even a broken engagement or two.

But the many pitfalls of (fictional) Mindy's love life provided great opportunity again and again for the real Mindy and her team to welcome impressive guest stars from all the over map. With The Mindy Project set to wrap...

Red Oaks Season 1 Review

Nine episodes were provided prior to release

More than a year after its promising debut as part of Amazon’s 2014 pilot program, the ten-episode first season of suburban tennis comedy Red Oaks will be available for streaming tomorrow. As both an ‘80s throwback, and one reminiscent of youth-oriented films from the decade, a streaming service release is probably the hippest thing about the series. The type of coming of age story told by Red Oaks is an unmistakably familiar one, but it’s enjoyable to watch this sweetly mild series play a precise, low-impact game.

With ‘90s revivalism on the brink of claiming the nostalgia crown from the decade’s go-go sibling (let’s set the approaching “Back to The Future Day” as a coronation), the cinematic end of genuine ‘80s appreciation can be felt in the (creatively) bankrupt era grave robbing of movies like Terminator: Genisys and Pixels. In TV land,

Review: Amazon goes retro with '80s-set country club comedy 'Red Oaks'

Review: Amazon goes retro with '80s-set country club comedy 'Red Oaks'
If any man alive has the right to argue for TV's recent ascension over movies, it would be David Chase. But "The Sopranos" creator has never seen it that way, telling me a few years ago that the only obvious advantage he thinks TV has is that "there’s more of it, and you can get into more detail. I guess maybe this is what it comes down to: in a television show, you can spend a lot of money on very little small things about people.” That ability to expand stories and drill down on characters has always been TV's greatest strength, but it's been particularly obvious with the migration of indie filmmakers to TV over the last few years. Shows like "Transparent," "Girls," "Togetherness," and Hulu's new "Casual" could have easily been made into 90-minute movies that played the festival circuit; instead, we get longer versions that really

TV Review: ‘Red Oaks’

TV Review: ‘Red Oaks’
Another valentine to the ’80s, “Red Oaks” is a series without many original beats, but which nevertheless assembles its familiar ones in a pretty digestible package. Mashing up “The Graduate,” “Dirty Dancing” and “Caddyshack” into one big bowl of borsht, this Amazon dramedy focuses on a college-age guy at life’s invariable crossroads, trying to figure out what he wants – and doesn’t – while working as an assistant tennis pro at the local country club. Although the writing commits some unforced errors, where else can boomers find a show featuring Exile’s “I Wanna to Kiss You All Over” on its soundtrack?

David Meyers (Craig Roberts, betraying none of his British origins) is a Jewish student at Nyu living in suburban New Jersey, who, in the opening sequence, is hitting balls with his father (Richard Kind) when dad suffers a heart attack. Thinking he’s headed to the great beyond,

Failed TV pilots that paved the way for breakout hits

Had these pilots been given the green light, we might have been without Breaking Bad, 24, Hannibal, Community and more…

It’s not all grumble and moan round here when TV networks decline to pick up pilots. Sometimes, we’re even grateful.

Hindsight teaches that every so often, passing on a particular show is the best thing a channel could have done. Not ordering one pilot to series spurs its creators on to start another, and frees up its cast to join new projects.

Had the failures below all thrived, there’s a chance we could now be living in a world with no Breaking Bad, Hannibal, or even South Park. Had these pilots gone on to enjoy healthy, lengthy lives, then Jack Bauer, Oberyn Martell, Chandler Bing and more might all be unrecognisable today.

Here then, are the TV pilots we’re grateful weren’t taken to series because their
