The Mindy Project 5×07 ‘Revenge of the Nurse’: Happy hundredth

The hundredth episode is a major milestone for any television show. It proves they’ve been successful enough to make it to such a huge number of episodes. Normally shows go all out to celebrate and display all the talent that got them to one hundred episodes. While The Mindy Project does celebrate in a way […]

The Mindy Project 5×06 ‘Concord’: Moving on

It’s finally here – the weekend of Danny’s clearly doomed wedding, and it should be no surprise to anyone that Mindy is clearly upset. She has a successful business, a caring boyfriend, and a sweet child, but she’s still shaken. Danny, who she previously thought was the great love of her life, is getting married […]

The Mindy Project 5×05 ‘Leland Breakfast is the Miracle Worker’: Love and the universe

For the past few weeks, these reviews have questioned the seriousness of Mindy’s and Ben’s relationship. The show seemed to build them up to as eventually become more than a casual relationship, but after similar instances in the show’s past where relationships ended relatively quickly, it was a toss-up if Mindy and Ben would actually […]

The Mindy Project 5×04 ‘Mindy Lahiri Is a Misogynist: Welcome Dr. Ziev

The past few years have seen doctors come and go in the Shulman and Associates office. There was Dr. Shulman himself, Danny, Peter, and Adrian. But for the first time, Shulman and Associates has hired another female doctor to fill out their ranks. It’s an interesting and welcome choice, especially since Anna Ziev and Mindy […]

The Mindy Project 5×03 ‘Margaret Thatcher’: An attack of the heart

The strike between nurses and doctors is one of The Mindy Project’s more compelling storylines. The strike is an interesting problem to give the Shulman staff. For once, it’s not just a problem that the Shulman staff brought on themselves through some misunderstanding. Granted, Mindy did play a huge part in it, but the strike […]

The Mindy Project 5×02 ‘Nurses’ Strike’: Romance strikes

Well that was fast. Last week I predicted that despite turning down Jody and Danny, Mindy would find love again. It seems that I was right as a new love interest, in the form of a pediatrician nurse named Ben, has popped up. He’s one of the nurses who looks after Leo, but he’s also […]

The Mindy Project 5×01 ‘Decision 2016’: Goodbye, love triangle

When we last left Mindy Lahiri, the romantic drama of the past year had finally come to a head. Mindy was left reeling from the bombshell that Jody had fallen in love with her, while another bombshell was waiting in her mail pile: an invitation to Danny’s wedding. The premiere picks up right where the […]

The Mindy Project 4×26 ‘Homewrecker’: What happens now?

If there’s one thing The Mindy Project knows how to do, it’s make a good finale. “Homewrecker” was no exception. The finale brought back all of season 4’s themes: Mindy and Danny’s relationship, Jody’s love for Mindy, and Mindy’s desire to be a good doctor and mother. Megan Wright

The Mindy Project 2×25 ‘Freedom Tower Women’s Health’: The saga of bad decisions continues

Bad decisions are the foundation of TV. If we didn’t have bad decisions, we wouldn’t have had some of the greatest shows of our time. (What if Walter White hadn’t cooked meth? What if Ned hadn’t left Winterfell? What if Michael Bluth hadn’t tried to save the family business?) While they hurt the characters we […]

The Mindy Project 2×24 ‘My Kid Stays in the Picture’: One step forward, two steps back

This week’s The Mindy Project was incredibly frustrating for me, because it backtracked on the character progression of just last week’s episode. I enjoyed “There’s No Crying in Baseball” because it referenced how the show (and Mindy Lahiri) were trying to bounce back from Danny leaving. It looked like Mindy had made progress when she […]

The Mindy Project 4×23 ‘There’s No Crying in Softball’: Time to get meta

Last week in my review I talked about my frustration with Mindy’s revolving door of boyfriends in season 4B. While normally the show produces funny, charismatic short-term boyfriends for Mindy who contribute to the plot (Josh, Casey, and Cliff, for example), this season’s boyfriends left too quickly to actually have much of a personality. It […]

The Mindy Project 4×21 ‘Princeton Charming’: Boy trouble

While watching The Mindy Project this week, I couldn’t help but get a little bored. The plot was about Mindy meeting (and arguing with) a cute guy, going on a date with him, and then hoping they might have a future together. After the ep. was over, I realized I was bored because, well, I’ve […]

Mindy Peter

The Mindy Project 4×21 ‘Under the Texan Sun’: No vacation from drama

It’s hard not to get excited whenever Peter shows up in a Mindy Project episode. Despite being a series regular for only a season and a half, Peter is one of the show’s most important characters. He told Mindy she was pregnant, helped Mindy realize she loved Danny, and then eventually helped her realize that […]

The Mindy Project 4×20 ‘The Greatest Date in the World’: Goodbye Marcus, hello Jody

For the first few seasons, The Mindy Project was about a woman in search of romance. Not just any kind of romance: the endless, dramatic, heart wrenching love you see in the movies. She wanted the dream that romantic comedies laid out for her: an all consuming romance. Then she got it, and realized it […]

Mindy Casey

The Mindy Project 4×19 ‘Baby Got Backslide’: The boy with the Minion Tattoo

Over the course of the series, Mindy Lahiri’s had a fair amount of serious boyfriends: Josh, Cliff, Danny, etc. But none of them were as close to fully committing to Mindy as Casey was. Even Danny, who spent four seasons loving Mindy, didn’t get as close to the alter as Casey did. Mindy and Casey […]

The Mindy Project 4×18 ‘Bernardo and Anita’: Mindy meets West Side Story

The Mindy Project has been able to explore more stories outside of romance since Mindy and Danny separated. For most of its run, the show was a romantic comedy. While it was entertaining, it’s fun to see the writers branch out and find new stories to tell in Mindy Lahiri’s world. This week’s story was […]

The Mindy Project 4×17 ‘Mindy Lahiri is DTF’: Elementary, my dear Mindy

Mindy’s foray back into the dating world has been odd, to say the least. Not only has she continued to have the bad luck that plagued her romantic endeavors before she met Danny, but Jody is starting to have feelings for her. Now she’s so desperate for sex, she’s starting to have weird dreams about […]

The Mindy Project 4×16 ‘So You Think You Can Finance’: Whitney’s back

Jody’s secret is out. This week’s The Mindy Project reveals that he has fallen for Mindy, and wants to do the mature thing and tell her. Right up until he realizes just how different their personalities are, and gets cold feet. Which, in my opinion, is actually a good thing. While I like Jody’s character, […]

The Mindy Project 4×15 ‘2 Fast 2 Furious’: The boyfriends are back

I never thought I’d say this, but thank goodness Mindy Lahiri is dating again. This week’s episode of The Mindy Project was a pleasant break from the rest of the season. Most of season four has centered around Mindy and Danny’s slowing dying relationship, with arguing and yelling and heartbreak (for the audience as well […]

The Mindy Project 4×14 ‘Will They or Won’t They’: Where do we go from here?

When we last left the not-so-happy couple of Mindy and Danny, it was on one of the most depressing Christmas mornings ever, as Mindy had just realized her relationship with Danny wasn’t healthy. Mindy Kaling seems to have known that any more episodes of Mindy and Danny yelling at one another would permanently break the […]
