In today’s #watwc, the hashtag #safetytipsforladies makes fun of the ridiculous ways we teach women how not to get raped (you know, instead of teaching men not to rape), Diablo Cody makes a great argument in favor of printed books, The Mindy Project films its last episode of the season, and more!

It looks like Mindy Kaling’s smart sitcom is only going to get better. The program has at least five promising guest stars for the second half of the season, so even though ratings haven’t been awesome, at least we’re getting a solid batch of newbies toward the end of season one. Here are the five we’re most excited about.

Was anyone else a bit disappointed by last night’s episode of The Mindy Project?

After a rather disappointing contrast last episode between the show’s A and B plots, this week focused on a single story involving all of the show’s characters — and it was all the better for it. The episode took on a situation that I think many women will relate to.

It’s time to admit that my beloved The Mindy Project has a problem. A B-plot problem.

Mindy is having dinner entirely made on a panini press (it’s as weird and gross as it sounds) that her boyfriend Josh cooked for her, when talk turns to his upcoming time on the road. She is going to be hosting Thanksgiving dinner at Anna Camp’s house, bringing Morgan along as her caterer, while Josh is going to be traveling the country with a bunch of basketball players. When Mindy raises the idea of dating exclusively, Josh seems to want to table it until after he returns from his roadtrip (presumably so he can sleep with other girls). Furious, Mindy claims that she doesn’t want to be exclusive either and takes it as license to hit on Ed Helms at Anna Camp’s place.

Poor Mindy — she can’t even have a lazy morning in bed with her boyfriend without it going terribly wrong.

Chris Messina grinding on ladies in the club. Enough said. But for an extra frisson of amazingness, picture him in character as Reese Lansing on The Newsroom.

It’s impossible to watch The Mindy Project and not be constantly reminded that Mindy Kaling is the showrunner. Her fingerprints are all over it — in having Chris Messina’s Danny Castellano read Catchng Fire on the subway, in casting Seth Meyers as an attractive architect (THE stock career for a male lead in a rom-com, her officemates agree) who takes Mindy out on a date, in giving her character Mindy Lahiri a typical female-lead voiceover that gets interrupted and subverted within the first thirty seconds of each episode. It’s fascinating to me that Kaling’s voice is so fully developed and her vision is so clear. This is a person who is totally sure of what she wants to do with her show, and the feeling as a viewer is similar to watching the first few episodes of 30 Rock in 2006. I think The Mindy Project is going to be around for a while. Here’s why.
