Watch The Mindy Project and The New Normal NOW

The Mindy Project's pilot went up online (legally) Monday.  NBC is taking a lesson from Fox and airing The New Normal for some added hype, so word of mouth spreads BEFORE it actually airs.  It worked for New Girl last year and somewhat for Glee a few years ago (the hype died down after such a long hiatus), so hopefully it'll work this year for both.  They are deliciously hilarious.  Both have slight hiccups in the pilots, but they're pilots.  Every pilot has that (except for re-imagined Battlestar Galactica, of course).

Watch The Mindy Project and The New Normal after the jump.

Celtic Corner: Karine Polwart Traces Humanity’s Heart

Scottish singer-songwriter Karine Polwart has crafted a truly beautiful work of art for her latest solo release Traces.  It’s a venture of a unique voice that only Polwart can master.  She simultaneously tells a story, provides true human insight, and produces a theatrical sound both grandiose and personal.
