A disappointing episode
2 February 2016 | by david_hokey_16See all my reviews

Overall, this was a disappointing episode. So, basically Mindy is still stressed over what happened in the previous episode. Out of nowhere, her brother Rashi appears and tells her he plans to leave college to pursue a rap career. What an awful idea. To make matters worse her brother isn't the least bit likable like the rest of the characters. When Mindy finally does decide to help him - despite his mean treatment towards her earlier - she has to be a backup singer for him and due to the explicit lyrics this exchange feels slightly incestuous. It also proves that the 'best' raps must contain misogynistic lyrics to be cool. There's a subplot about the practices rent which is pretty boring. Definitely a bad episode to an otherwise good show.
