Did You Know?


Because of the specific scheduling for the pilot/FOX pickup process, Mindy Kaling was only available to make a brief appearance in the premiere for the 9th (and final) season of her former show "The Office". When TMP wrapped its 1st season and got a 2nd season pickup, the timing allowed Kaling (along with BJ Novak, who worked on TMP's 1st season) to make return appearances when "The Office" filmed its series finale.

The Mindy Project Pilot
25 September 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Mindy is a doctor looking for movie love so she dates anybody who she feels makes her think of a movie love. So when we find her in the pilot she is explaining moments that lead her to getting arrested, which is when her ex boyfriend gets married she drinks a lot at the wedding riding home on a bike but falling into a pool which then gets her arrested. Then we get to see more characters as they set up the rest of the cast including a funny other male nurse who helps her once when it comes to dating like what to wear.I very much like this pilot because to me of the late FOX pilots it felt in the vain of New Girl and not Running Wilde. Mindy has had a strong voice and it's great to finally see her get the chance to show her talents rather then be wasted on The Office. The beginning was very funny especially the use of a voice-over which got less impressive as the episode went on (If that's used in every episode I may hate the show). Of course Mindy made a strong impression but the Chris Messina seems to fit the role of a breakout role like Greenfield did on new girl as I found Messina to be very funny. I will watch the rest of the season as I find Mindy very charming and has a great screen presence.

EPISODE GRADE: B+ (MVP: Mindy Kalling)
