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:
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.
Thank god the MLB playoffs are over. Baseball is barely a sport anyway, and it was taking up valuable time that should have been used airing new “Mindy” episodes. The show returned with an episode that was less risque than the last few, but just as funny. Here we go:

Well that was…risque. And hilarious. Apparently we’ve progressed enough as a society that we can have entire episodes of television devoted to anal sex. Or, if this episode is based on reality at all, Mindy Kaling is a freak and B.J. Novak was a very lucky man. Anyway, let’s discuss:
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.
