another of those incessant yak, yak, yak kind of comedies. And like all too many, not funny at all.

I lasted 10 minutes and quit and killed off the timer.

Do you like anything new? :lol: You've dogged like every new show.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I guess the mod can kill my Mindy thread which started just after this one. So I'll just post in here instead...

Ok, I admit I was seriously skeptical. I like eye candy and Mindy Kaling is no eye candy. In fact, she's kind of painful to look at at times. But she's a good writer and just like "Ugly Betty", the show allows the star to be "less than lovely" in the show, they treat the character realistically, which is what made Ugly Betty work and it works again here. And it's also what allows us the audience to gradually get past the optics and begin to appreciate the underlying charm, wit and likability of the star.

I give the Mindy Project a one-week reprieve on my New Fall Shows Kill List. And that's saying a lot. Many are called, few are chosen.

Yeah, I do like some of the new shows. Revolution (even posted here about it), Vegas come to mind.

And even though it may look like I don't like comedy, I actually do. I just want it to be good and funny. This one just isn't either.

If they pick the funniest one-liners for the promos, and the promos are brutal, it's usually a bad sign. And the promos were brutal.

I actually like both New Girl and Raising Hope, so it's not as if I don't like the Fox Tuesday style of comedy.

I thought the it was good and funny. Sometimes people just don't catch the subtle jokes and need things to be obvious.

I have to agree. I'm watching it now and she hasn't shut up yet... I've never been a fan of hers but thought I'd give it a shot. I was wrong in doing so.
