Mindy Project S3E12: Medically Blonde

Standard

By Josh Axelrod and Anamika Roy 

We shouldn’t still have to note this, but it was nice to see “Mindy” use its entire ensemble well again. Every member of the cast got a moment or two to shine, and the guest stars brought their A-games. There was one scene, though, that stood out from the rest:

Mindy Project S3E7 Roundtable: “Welcome to the Danger Zone”

Standard

By Josh Axelrod and Anamika Roy 

This might have been the first episode all season to use the entire ensemble in compelling ways. The lack of Niecy Nash’s Dr. Fishman this episode was a little confusing for a character who still needs to be established, but other than that everyone was used well and the episode was made all the better for it.

THE MINDY PROJECT, S3E3 ROUNDTABLE: “I can never repay you and I don’t plan to”

Standard

By Josh Axelrod, David Oliver and Anamika Roy 

This week’s “Mindy” wasn’t quite as laugh-out-loud hilarious as the last two, but it was still a solid half-hour of TV. Hopefully this isn’t a sign the show is headed toward a stale patch because, as “New Girl” is demonstrating, sometimes shows never recover from mediocrity. But that’s a discussion for another day. For now, let’s focus on the here and now.
