Mindy Project

I have a new favorite TV show - The Mindy Project.  Obviously, I realize this show is not new, however I'm trying to unload my queue of crime shows, and substitute in a few lighter comedies that don't leave me worried or frightened to fall asleep before bed (as most of my current crime shows usually do).  I'm thinking this is a good plan...

Anyway, I've always been a fan of Mindy Kaling.  I enjoyed her as Kelly Kapoor in the Office, I read her book, so I'm figuring, it was only a matter of time before joining the ranks of her TV followers.  First, I enjoy all the characters; especially her love/hate interest; Chris Messina (a.k.a. Danny Castellano), loved him initially as the doting husband in Julie & Julia.  Plus, I can relate to Mindy's characters obsession with rom coms.  Pretty sure I own every movie she recites dutifully throughout the first few episodes, (You've Got Mail, Notting Hill, Sleepless in Seattle, should I go on?).

Alright, I think I've made my pitch.  If you haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet, watch the pilot, it's supremely entertaining.

Initially, I wasn't that into it. It started off a little weak for me, but it progressively got better. I think the last half of the season is much stronger than the first. Now I adore the show! My favorite character is Morgan. Always makes me laugh!

Totally agree. As with any new show, it can take a few episodes to fall in love with the characters. This one and The New Girl are my current favorites!

I've only watched a couple episodes of this show but you're right, it's awesome and totally relatable.

I literally JUST finished this show on Hulu, like, last week (and then watched the finale from this week). I watched the pilot originally and couldn't get into it, but I think I suffer from TV ADD, because I never like a show unless I watch 4 episodes in a row and then I'm hooked. It's super funny!

I think this has been my favorite new show this season. Sad I have to wait until fall for new episodes now.
