I'll give it one more chance.
I really wanted to love it, but I'm with the folks stating "something feels off" because it did, there was something missing in the connection to her character and the audience, it felt like a character, as opposed to Jess on New Girl where they have never had the issue.
I'm in for the longer haul, it's a great concept with great folks involved, it just needs to gel.
Oh. I give most comedy pilots a second chance. I will this one.
True. Just look at Scrubs. JD, Turk, Elliot and Todd were very convincing in their portrayal of doctors.
Seriously, the credibility of a doctor on a SITCOM is a discussion point?
That was the first show I thought of when I saw the lack of realism from a doctor.
Did you watch that show? They were serious about being doctors. JD's inner monologue was as often about being a good doctor.
Not seeing it with Mindy.
And yes, you need some credibility or the show is just nonsense.
I did see TonyD79's response too..
Turk was the most serious at the doctor part, it seemed to me.
I thought they showed that when she is working as a doctor she IS serious and focused. That was the point of the scene of her changing into her work underwear, scrubbing all the make-up off her face, and putting on her glasses. She is a woman who outside of her career wants to make some changes to her life. She just doesn't have it all together in her personal life but she is very tremendously self-aware.
That's what I got out of it too. Not sure where the "focusless" debate comes from. How would Dr. Frazier Crane fit into this whole discussion? Like or dislike the show, but the "a doctor wouldn't act that way" isn't much of an argument when it comes to sitcoms.
Turk was absolutely the most serious and focused doctor on Scrubs. When he was in scrubs, he was all business:

I am not a big fan of hers so I have no interest in watching the show. My wife feels the same.
That being said, I do hope her show is a success. If it turns into a great show that everyone loves, I can always go back and catch up later!
I liked it well enough to keep watching. It reminded me of some of the things she talked about on an episode of Marc Maron's WTF podcast. Her mom is a doctor and I think her dad was a professor. IIRC, they wanted her to be a doctor.
I watched this last night, and liked it some. I'll keep the SP for now.
I didn't expect to like it at all, as I'm not a big fan of hers and didn't really like "Kelly" from The Office. I was pleasantly surprised and laughed multiple times.
I just saw this weeks episode. I liked it. Supporting cast is ok. Having never seen "The Office" I didn't know the actress.
I didn't care for the pilot. My wife liked it. Subsequent episodes, we saw eye to eye (both liked the same one and disliked the same one).
This show has become my favorite comedy this season. Then again I don't watch as many as I use to. Whitney was this for me last season, but I feel The Mindy Project is better.
Who was the actress that played Josh's "other" girlfriend last night... I recognized her, but can't for the life of me place her.
