I love this show so much! I think that the writing is amazing and that each actor is incredibly funny. Although the show may not end for a while, I have some ending theories in mind. It's just fun for me to predict how I think the show will end, and look back to later to see if I'm right (and have proof!).
- •Mindy and Ben get marriedThe just got back together and they seem like they really like each other. Mindy can fully appreciate how great Ben is, he's ready to give her a real second chance, and he gets along with Leo. I can kind of see the finale as a Mindy and Ben wedding with Mindy's ex-boyfriends in the audience. Who knows? They may even jump forward and show Mindy happily married and working even after having a couple more kids to show viewers that this was the right decision for her.
- •Mindy decides that she's better off singleAnother possibility I see for the show is Mindy having the realization that she is better off on her own with Leo. This might not be a popular theory, but since the show was, in a nutshell, about a girl trying to find love, Mindy Kaling might want to teach her viewers a lesson and show them that for all of this searching, Mindy Lahiri doesn't need a man to have a fulfilling life.
- •Danny comes backThis is highly unlikely because of the way that their last interaction ended, but some part of me can't help but wonder if he comes back. When they were last talking, Danny told Mindy that he was marrying so quickly more out of necessity than out of love, and he called her during the wedding rehearsal but she didn't pick up. That phone call meant something. I can kind of see him realizing how unhappy he is and trying to come back to Mindy, but she rejects him and stays with Ben.
- •Mindy and JodyAs per the latest episode, Mindy and Ben seem to be having problems, and Jodi is dating someone exactly like Mindy, clearly not over her. They just might end up together.
The Office is my favorite show. Hands down. I feel like I know each and every character as if I worked with them, and I kind of use it as my textbook to become a better writer. Their writing staff was amazing and so funny, individually and together. Anyway, before I write 10 pages, here are some of my favorite episodes and who wrote them.
- 1.Finale—Written by Greg Daniels (Show runner)I know that stating the Finale of a series as one of your favorite episodes isn't exactly profound, but trust me, it's earned its spot. It was kind of bittersweet because you got to see sort of the best of each character right before they left us. I loved how Greg Daniels listened to the audience, and really made this episode for us: We saw Angela and Dwight get married with a wedding that was perfectly them, and we got to check up on the major and even the minor characters who left.
- 2.Diversity Day—Written by B.J. NovakAnother classic. This was the second episode of the entire series and it is still one of the best. It pushes boundaries from a comedic standpoint, but it shows what I love about B.J. Novak's writing: It pushes the boundaries far enough to be as funny as it can be, but it doesn't go too far to actually offend a lot of people. I thought that the episode was risky and bold, hilarious, and a great contrast to the pilot.
- 3.Micheal's last Dundies—Written by Mindy KalingI think this was the perfect example of what I love most about Mindy Kaling's writing: Her ability to expertly combine emotion with comedy and make the audience laugh and feel something at the same time. I loved the award titles and thought that it was so funny how they delivered them, but I also thought the song at the end and their effort to properly say good bye to Michael was beautiful and extremely touching, and the car scene was the one scene that drew intense emotion out of Michael.
