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.
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.
