The Mindy Project returned with a new season Tuesday night on Fox, several long months after the show finally got main characters Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) into a proper relationship together
And the wait was well worth it
From the start of the episode, the show stayed true to this couple’s long-held truth: Mindy and Danny aren’t a so-called perfect couple — he’s sometimes what she’d consider a bore and she’s sometimes a lot of personality to handle — but they’re always…
Hashtag-America in hashtag-2014 is a place where you can turn on your TV and watch former athletes who are now way out of shape wear jerseys emblazoned with their respective weights — 366, 388, 263, 301, you get the idea — as personal trainers exhort them to lift medicine balls and run on treadmills.

BERLIN — We’re used to seeing a couple of waterproof gadgets at Showstoppers, the “extra” show that accompanies IFA (and most other big tech conferences). This year, however, we’ve had a chance to get our hands on one that we haven’t seen before: a fully waterproof e-reader called Kobo Aura H20
Announced a couple weeks back, the 6.8-inch e-reader is pretty much the same as its brother, the Kobo Aura HD, but with an important difference: it’s IP67 certified
Starz’s The Chair is more than a making-of-a-movie docuseries — it’s the answer to a question the movie business has been asking since videos on YouTube began launching their content producers into stardom: Can a YouTuber make a successful full-length film?
At least, that’s the journey for one of the show’s participants, YouTuber Shane Dawson, one of two directors whose filmmaking journey will be chronicled on the show, which premieres Saturday
