Mindy spent a lot of time last season trying to find its voice - and given the tone, rhythm, and finesse of the premiere's best lines, it seems like that journey yielded good results.

Entertainment Weekly

Liking characters isn't essential to successful comedy - see the works of Larry David and Ricky Gervais, for instance - but you're setting the laugh bar much higher in that case, and Mindy isn't clearing it for me.

December 29, 2013 Full Review Source: HitFix

The Mindy Project isn't the first sitcom to fearlessly pursue serialized story lines, but the show weaves them together well, and with total confidence.

December 29, 2013 Full Review Source: Vulture

One of the show's best qualities is how aggressively it resists the stifling obligations of the ethnic groundbreaker: Lahiri isn't ever a role model or an underdog.

It's disappointing that the show's second season starts off with more of the same.

December 29, 2013 Full Review Source: AV Club

I'm constantly wondering why more people aren't willing to take their relationship with both characters and this consistently hilarious show to the next... level.

Physical comedy truly is the way to my heart.

November 6, 2013 Full Review Source: The Loop

Some good laughs, surrounded by a number of oddly shaped pieces.

September 18, 2013 Full Review Source: AV Club

[Kaling and James Franco] are very funny together.

Franco's smile is infectious and should prove a great addition to the cast for as long as he remains.

September 18, 2013 Full Review Source: TV Fanatic

These couple of episodes give hope that Kaling the writer means to continue to skewer her character's fantasies with the same combination of intelligence and acid wit as before.

September 18, 2013 Full Review Source: PopMatters
PopMatters

The laughs are usually consistent and the characters are enjoyable, but without a ton of depth or much of a clear outlook on where the plot or characters are going, the strings holding The Mindy Project together might not hold.

The series is more rewarding when Mindy interacts with her friends and co-workers, all of whom are as idiosyncratic as she is, albeit in different ways.

September 17, 2013 Full Review Source: Slant Magazine
Slant Magazine

Franco's irony-laced charisma makes [his character,] Leotard a sharp foil [for Mindy].

September 17, 2013 Full Review Source: TV Guide
TV Guide

So while Franco might add a bit of sizzle to the premiere promotionally speaking, all that really does is something any doctor wouldn't recommend: Taking a condition that originates under the surface, and simply slapping a band-aid on it.

Audience Reviews for The Mindy Project: Season 2

I was concerned about Mindy Kaling new TV series before it started. I have read her book and she is funny. Her role and writing in the hit television show, The Office is also pretty funny, but tackling her own show? Now, that is the surprise.

Mindy Kaling is a gifted comedy writer and actress. In Mindy Project she used the often cliche in romantic comedies movies or TV shows and adds a twist to it. The series also has one hilarious cast ensemble. From Chris Messina as Dr Danny Castellano, who plays your stereotype Italian macho man, but often caught in weird situations. Followed by Dr Jeremy Reed (played by Ed Weeks), who is a British doctor and has many personal issues. He is a ladies man, but with a daddy issue, which as you can expect often caught him in an awkward situation and discussion. There is also Morgan Tookers (played by Ike Barinholtz), which without a doubt is the funniest character in the show. Morgan is a male-nurse. He is weird but has a golden heart, he is also Mindy's best friend, or so he he thought. The reasons why I watched the series is because of Mindy and her fairy-tale romantic expectations. She is smart but at the same time shallow and very very eccentric. Season 1 has been good, but season 2 is awesome. I know not many people agree with me on the second season, because the writers keep on adding new characters and forget about the old one's. But, so what? many TV shows has been doing that. The season 1 is an experiment, but the second season is the real deal. I really really hope it will see a third season, cause you know what? the series deserved it.

83/100.
