  • The Pilot

    I was worried about Mindy Kaling's ability to lead a show, and I still share those doubts, but this was an interesting debut. A little bit formulaic with the kind of humor, and a little too similar to other female-led shows we have seen in recent years, but there's some potential here. A good comedy in a doctor's office could be what TV needs.

    Potential here, but still lacking the funny.moreless
  • Off to a good Start

    I found The Mindy Project to be kind of cute and interesting. The characters could use some more fleshing out but that should come with time. Mindy seems to be a capable doctor but kind of spastic in her personal life. A good mix for comedy. Looking forward to more.

    • Mindy: I am 31 right now. I can't do this kind of thing anymore. I need to give myself a chance. And if that doesn't work out, we can maybe resume this in my 40s, 50s and 60s.
      Jeremy: Yeah, I'm not going to want to have sex with you in your 40s, 50s and 60s.
      Mindy: That's really rude. And just so you know, when I'm that age I'm going to be super hot with a bunch of really cute kids running around. Meanwhile you are going to be some weird old alcoholic trying to write a novel in Cuba.
      Jeremy: Poems, but��"
      Mindy: Doesn't matter.

    • Mindy : Hey you two, quick question: do you care about my career and want me to succeed?
      Betsy: More than anything in the world.
      Mindy: Okay, well if that is the case, why are you sending me non-English speaking immigrants with no health insurance? With literally, like, burqas and stuff!
      Shauna: I thought she might be rich with oil money.
      Mindy: Well she wasn't. She was poor with nothing money.

    • Gwen: Did you think that Tom was just gonna ditch the wedding and run off with you like you're Katherine Heigl?
      Mindy: Kind of, yes!
      Gwen: Well, your life is not a romantic comedy. Right now, it seems more like a sad documentary about a criminally insane spinster.
      Mindy: Kinda sounds like I'd win an Oscar, though.

    • Police Officer: We have you down for three counts of public intoxication, theft, and disorderly conduct.
      Mindy: I'm sorry. Disorderly conduct? Aren't there rapists and murderers out there?
      Police Officer: When you are disorderly, you are a rapist of peace and quiet.
      Mindy: That's a little... Okay.
