"The Mindy Project" is a biting new single-camera comedy from Emmy Award-nominated writer/producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling ("The Office") that follows a woman who, despite having a successful career, is unlucky in love and desperately needs to get her personal life back on track before her friends and colleagues are forced to stage an intervention.

This show is funny, unique and fresh which is why I continue watching it. The one thing it lacks is any kind of character progress or depth in its supporting cast. The show focuses on mindy and danny so much the writers forget to follow up on character growth or continue storylines with anyone else. I feel like if they started spending time creating better stories for everyone else I would be addicted and more invested in this show. They might want to take some pointers from whoever created Scrubs...

Is different. The Mindy Project is very likable and the laughs never get dull. I don't really like TV shows, but I had to make an exception for Mindy Khaling. None of the characters are dull and the storyline is always fresh! Mindy would be my best friend!!

I recognized Mindy Kaling from previous work and didn't think the previews to this new show would be anything special. However, I was hooked 5 minutes into the show and found myself laughing every few minutes! I love the humor and I think the story line is going to be great! "I'm Sandra Bullock.... Racist!" LOL!
