The Mindy Project

Have you watched The Mindy Project yet? (If not, what are you waiting for? Seriously?)

It's a show about Mindy Lahiri, an OB/GYN who's looking for love and losing herself in rom-com cliches while managing her professional life in a Manhattan medical practice full of quirky coworkers. It's sassy, subtle and super easy to binge-watch. It's one of the few shows that makes me laugh out loud!

Whenever I recommend the show, I always mention it takes a bit for the show to find its stride. Undergoing a couple of notable casting changes and shifting its focus to more of an ensemble comedy between the first and second seasons, it only gets funnier and funnier. Ike Barinholtz and Max Pally are two of my favourites. And Chris Messina. Is it super cheesy to say his tough-yet-sweet Danny Castellano is dreamy? Whatever. Don't care. He is.

If you've tried to watch it and dropped off the radar, I recommend giving it another try. You'll want to get to, at least, the middle of the second season. To the airplane scene. If you've seen it, you know why.

The first two seasons are available on Netflix Canada, and the third is airing on TV right now. 


  1. oh the airplane scene. sigh. so good. LOVE this show. Cannot believe it took me so long to remember you recommended it!

  2. Laura -- I'm so glad you're all caught up. Wish you were still down the hall so we could catch up on it in person!


Would love to hear what you think!

(Remember, keep it kind and constructive.)
