Trivia

The timing of the show's original--where NBC commissioned a script and then decided not to shoot a pilot, and Fox then stepped in to first OK the pilot and then green-light the series for the 2012-13 season--led to the departures from NBC's "The Office" of both Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak, in the latter case as a consulting producer who had not renewed his contract with NBC after the 8th season. As a result, their characters departed the world of "The Office" very abruptly in the show's 9th and last season premiere, but both were able to return for the series finale because Season 1 of TMP had wrapped up by that time.

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)
