I find the Mindy Project refreshing as Mindy's character is so different to most representations of women that we see on tv. She's not perfect and has her share of problems but she's charming, witty, funny, intelligent and oh so honest. I've got to say I love her optimistic attitude and how quickly she can turn an insult into a compliment. I also think Mindy's gorgeous and proof that you don't have to look a certain way or conform to beauty ideals to be beautiful and confident. Mindy's certainly not lacking confidence!
Like a few of you, I also love seeing the chemistry between Mindy and Danny. When Danny grabbed Mindy's hand on the flight home as their plane experienced turbulence in the latter half of season one, I couldn't help but smile. Plus, I'll admit, strangely I find the character of Danny really handsome. Hopefully Chris Messina doesn't leave the Mindy Project too soon. Although, it's great his profile is rising because he's such a versatile actor.
As for her boyfriends, I found Josh a little creepy (even though he's popular with a lot of viewers) but found pastor Casey likable enough. I loved the scene where Mindy barged in on Casey teaching Sunday school and told him she wasn't willing to convert to Christianity and then inadvertently almost converted his class into Hinduism because they have "super cool" elephants ha ha.
I almost forgot, I believe the Mindy Project is special as the entire cast is strong and seem to gell so easily together. Morgan and Jeremy are both hillarious (for different reasons) and Betsy is so sweet and naive, that it's impossible not to like her. The casting directors did a great job. Bring on season 2.
