The Mindy Project, just like its main character, it's not without flaws. The characters are sometimes over the top, the situations occasionally unbelievable and some plots seem to serve only as a device for Mindy Kaling to pretend date a bunch of really hot men. However when the show is good, it's just really great. I love the chemistry between Mindy and Danny and the Christmas party episode made me root for them as a couple almost as much as I did for Nick and Jess mid second season of New Girl.
And from time to time we get served real gems like Chis Messina doing the Try Again dance routine (one of the funniest tv moments of 2013) that make me want to watch more and more.
I am officially in love!!! This show is absolutely hilarious and refreshing! I dont understand why this site continues to dump on it but give New Girl great compliments. But whatever, that why I love coming to this page just to read the great comments left by other fans of the show. I may be getting ahead of myself, but I truly hope they get picked up for another season, if not 2 more! :)
Also, if you are as much of a fan of the character Morgan, I would suggest checking out The Morgan Project on youtube! You will not be sorry :)
I wasn't expecting it to be as funny and sharp as it is. I don't know why, seeing as I loved Mindy in The Office and thought Kelly K as a character was hilarious. I totally identify with Mindy in this show however, I'm a chick in my early 30's so that could be why. I also love Chris Messina's character, and Morgan the nurse, I died when I realized he was the Russian baseball player in Eastbound and Down last season. So great. Watch it!
The best show on tv at the moment! Mindy is hilarious, I literally laugh out loud watching it. Most of the characters are strong (with the exception of the strange old woman beverly). I really like the love hate relationship between mindy and danny, but I do love Casey as well. Really glad this has been renewed for a second season- looking forward to it!
I can't get enough of Mindy. She's funny, she's vulnerable, she's genuinely caring and a great dreamer. The show seems to really be finding its footing and I believe it should switch time slots with New Girl. Given time, FOX will realize the gem in the line-up is Mindy.
This show is becoming a classic so far, all it needs to do is strengthen a little bit more on the image and connections. The jokes are okay, even if they are considered clumsy. Mindy and Betsy are the hottest women characters in this show. They need to bring back both Gwen and Shauna in this show and prevent that horrible old woman character from returning!
Perfect name for the show considering it feels like an experiment to see what would happen if The Office's Kelly Kapoor was an OB/GYN and pretty much ignored the career. this seems to be her one character and it'll be hard to build a successful career on just that.
It has some funny moments but Mindy Kaling just can't be the centerpoint of a show. it's amusing at times but more often than not, it feels like a lazy generic attempt at humor with cardboard cut out stereotypical sitcom characters. Personally, I think her time would have been better spent finishing that last season of the Office and giving this some more prep time before launch.
For me, a PhD in her early 30s, the show completely resonates with me. I think Mindy's character reflects many women today - intelligent and professionally successful, but still trying to find their footing in their personal lives. I find the honest and candid situations and humor to be refreshing - Mindy shows her imperfections in an unashamed way that makes other women who relate to her feel normal.
First, I would hate if this was my daughter her moral compass is way off. With that said, this is an adult comedy with some good writing. Mindy does a great job as a lead in a show. The opening scene was hilarious. There were other funny moments in the show as well. However, I'm conflicted her her sense of whats right and wrong.
This show is on the chopping block. I can't stand Mindy Kaling. This show is a bottle of urine on its best day, and the people who think it's watchable are drinking it all down.
Luckily, the rest of the world has a brain, most notably one of the few execs in charge up there at FOX (who knew? a FOX exec with a brain?) and this will come to an abrupt halt, only to be replaced with more crap... but at least we'll be rid of this nonsense.
TV is blessed with a ton of good comedies these days - the Mindy Project might not be the most stellar one, but it's definitely got heart, a selection of hilarious characters, and a very relatable, awesome female lead who absolutely carries the show. A lot of us single girls would love to deliver the sorts of zingers Mindy does on a regular basis...
It's a show that brightens up my week and occasionally reaches absolute hilarity. I hope it sticks around for a long time, because I feel like it's only now hitting its stride.
The show is getting better and better. It's seems like the first episode was a little different. I love when the people in the show think that other people are strange and they act strange too, but still accepting each other. You know what I mean...
I am an Indian female doctor in my late twenties, so I can definitely relate to Mindy and her situation. Yes, she is crazy and immature. But guys, this is a comedy and crazy characters make for good entertainment. I watch it for the laughs. I dont expect it to be realistic. In fact most of the medical dramas on TV (especially Gray's Anatomy) are pretty unrealistic and get nowhere close to representing the life of an average doctor.
I loved the hiring of nurse Morgan Tookers in Episode Two and Jeremy and Danny getting their driving licences in Episode Four. I actually find these characters more interesting than Mindy and would like to see more of them. It's weird that there is more chemistry between Jeremy and Danny than there is between either of them and Mindy.
But more than anything else, I'll be watching this show because it's the first American sitcom on prime time television to feature an Indian in the lead and I really want it to succeed. South Asian actors have a pretty hard time getting roles, so if this show is a success, it can lead to more roles for them. And about time too. The South Asian community is extremely underrepresented on TV.
