French and Anglophilia

As all of us with too much TV under our belts know, every show is an older show. Ron Swanson is Lou Grant, etc. So, another for the books: "The Mindy Project" is "The Vicar of Dibley." (Like, to the extent that much of what's been called revolutionary about "The Mindy Project" - much of what I've called groundbreaking about the show - doesn't count as such, if British shows count.) Which probably explains why, despite in principle supporting Geraldine's quest for a pretty-boy, I kind of rooted for her to fall in love with David, who's the show's Danny.

In further Anglophilia, I was recently informed (well, reminded) of the existence of lemon and sugar as a topping for crepes, on Pancake Day. Most excellent.
