The Mindy Project

Do you guys watch The Mindy Project? I find it hilarious and endearing. The second season premieres next Tuesday, but you can watch the first episode online today. Whoot whoot. Can't get enough of that Danny Castellano.
P.S. Mindy as a child, and her mom's great advice about friendship.

I haven't been able to watch the show "religiously".. but I have really enjoyed the couple of episodes I did see.

I like the fact that she portrays what I consider a more "realistic" character than most one dimensional TV series roles.

She is a smart professional yet is comfortable allowing her princess side come through loud and clear. Yes, we women can be strong.. and feminine. We can be leaned on.. but also lean on others. I also like the fact that she isn't a typical race or size zero. She is meddlesome and caring yet delightfully self absorbed at other times. All this rolled into a funny package with a good cast.. this show is one I would try to watch more if I had time.

Danny Castellanos is soooo cute- my friends don't agree, but understand why I would think it- he falls under my "type": short, stocky, and with great hair lol
I can't wait for this show and all my other fall favorites to come back <3!

I couldn't agree more with Ms. Shypoke! I was so happy to hear the show was picked up for another season.

Loved him in Damages where he had a very dark role.

I adore this show so much! Mindy plays such a realistic character many can relate too- she's not the typical romantic, inferior portrayal as many characters are seen like today on TV. She has this infectious personality that is just way too cool.

I love this show! And I thought Mindy's book was hilarious as well.

I love this show! She was a fantastic writer on the office and her show I think is equally amazing! I can't wait!

I am OBSESSED with The Mindy Project. I love her character and the whole thing is just the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. Great ensemble cast.

I really enjoyed the show until the "Midwife" episode where the team begins to lose their patients to midwives and they basically said that unless you're 25 you better have your baby in a hospital with an OB or you're in for a world of trouble.
I know that is crazy nit picky but I feel like a strong female character shouldn't be dissing on midwives even if she's playing a Doctor. It's the job of strong female role models to NOT perpetuate the fear of birth on the American female population.
Sorry, what a rant. I guess it just really bothered me because it came out right after I had given birth, and I stopped watching from then on even though I truly like Mindy Kaling.

This is one show that I looked forward to watching each week. She is so great and as a single 32 year old working girl...I love the dating ups and downs....it's so completely spot on!

I can't say enough about how much I LOVE Mindy! Her book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) is smart and hilarious. She is one of the greatest smart/funny women. The fact her book had a short chapter questioning why it takes men so long to put their shoes on made me laugh out loud.

My husband and I got into it because we knew one of the guys from watching The League...and fell in love with the show from there. I think I even tried to get him to watch it when it first started, but Mindy annoyed him or something.

Can't wait for the new season, especially after how last season ended!

Katrina-- I am so with you!!! The midwife episode felt waaaay out of control and unnecessary. I pretty much stopped watching after that even though I do like Mindy and thought some aspects of the show were funny. It's almost like that episode of Seinfeld where liberal Elaine finds out that a guy she's dating is pro life. Sadly, it's off.

Jennifer said...

Yay! Can't wait to watch the season premiere. I love Mindy, and Morgan cracks me up!

Sidney said...

This show is so funny! I'm so excited for this season :)

Thanks for the head's up! This one definitely fulfilled all my chick flick needs last year, when there seemed to be paucity of good classic rom coms in theatres :)

I am a HUGE fan of this show. I love mindy I always have and read both books! I love her so much and its a better chick show that i can relate to the rest I cant. I love her outfits and how she loves herself I look at that as a great role model!!! I am so excited for season two!!!!!!! I watch it on hulu

Kate Uhry said...

I can't wait! Do you ever watch Newsroom? Did you know your "danny" is on it too? I always wonder how actors can do two shows!

No Model Lady said...

Love this show so hard! This and New Girl make me so happy!

Eva McNamara said...

I felt exactly the same way! I know it was just one episode, but unfortunately, it totally turned me off and I haven't been able to get back into the show since.

Joanna Goddard said...

so did anyone watch the episode? it was actually awkward and not funny, i thought...i loved the first season but i hope the second season hasn't jumped the shark!

Caitlin Elizabeth said...

Mindy is fabulous! I love her show and her book!

Virginia Roberts said...

I love this show so much; it's so fresh and wonderful. I use clips and lessons from this show ALL THE TIME when I'm giving advice (serious or not so serious) to my online dating clients. Great life lessons sandwiched in with all the jokes!

Thanks for the heads-up about the new episode! I devoured it. But SPOILER ALERTS, OMG, they totally air a clip showing a bunch of Season 2 tidbits right before the actual episode! Fast-forward about 35 seconds if you're obsessive like me, haha.

Ashley said...

Best show on tv--and I owe you a big thanks for pointing it out to me a while back. Danny Castellano is my gynocologist. Love him!

Michelle {lovely little things} said...

LOVE this show!!

I've caught the odd episode but have never been majorly into it, thinking I may need to give it another go though, she does make me laugh

The Wardrobe Project said...

Can't wait!I love this series!

I watched it, Joanna. It made me excited for the new season, but I don't like her fiance, I think he's kind of gross, and I'm wondering if they're going to kill him off...It's certainly an enjoyable show but definitely not great television.

Michelle said...

Thanks for giving us the heads-up Joanna. Had a few good laughs watching the show last night. Does anyone else feel that as Casey went up that escalator to go to Haiti, that is the last we'll ever see of his character?

Michelle Lee said...

i want to check it out now!

Such a fun show! I watched the episode last night and was SO happy!!

J.Mill said...

Yes! Woman can be many things... all at once!

As for Danny Castellano... Do you see him play a bad-ish guy on The Newsroom? He does both parts so well. A good actor there!

Playground Prepster said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE this show!! So many funny lines!

Lammi Roubbo said...

Watched the first episode last night and it was a great start to season two and as always Motgan had me dying of laughter from the very beginning. I love Morgan.

Yeeesss! SUCH a fun show. So happy it's BAAAACK.

Bonnie Boatwright said...

It is my favorite new show. I really love the writing, and Mindy rocks

Designwali said...

this show is so fiercly funny and I love it. I can't even say how important and significant it is to see woman like Mindy lead a show of this calibre. Whether she knows or cares - she puts south asian woman on a map and in such a positive light!

Sandra Lee said...

Kind of in love with this show. Do you follow Mindy on Instagram? She puts some pretty great stuff on there!
