    From my favorite movies..

    Fun premise, good actors, bad writing. This film seemed to have potential at the beginning but it quickly devolves into a trite action film. Ultimately it's very boring.

    The best films of this genre always show a path and provide a takeaway for being a better person.

    The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.

    I'm only halfway through Season 2 and I'm already super annoyed by Mindy's character. She is materialistic, selfish, short-sighted, imaginative, and unconfirmed. She isn't a role model or an anti-hero, just some weirdo in the middle who is content with the sad, man-driven life she lives. Yes, she is an amazing doctor, but besides that she is not showing any sort of growth. Amanda Setton and Anna Camp we're both demoted. I'm most upset about the Camp demotion because she provided a nice contrast to the wild, airy Mindy character. I thought since Kaling and B.J. Novak were Office alums, there would be more smart writing and less cliche rom-com storylines. Let's see a woman that can live without wanting to bang every guy she sees. I will finish the series (painfully) because of my TV OCD, but I won't like it. If my feelings do change, I will update this.

    Throughout the show, Mindy is a self-centred bully who is mean to everyone. As a woman of colour who does not have the "perfect body" (according to society), she could have been the perfect role model for young girls and even women who feel like they are not good enough because of their body type or skin colour. Instead, she is a mean-spirited character who is obsessed with finding a man, and keeps referring to herself as thin, although it is clear that she is not, making women feel like they need to be skinny to be beautiful and achieve greatness. in addition to that, Mindy is a horrible person who treats her peers in a rude and obnoxious manner; she always insults them, Morgan in particular, and does not care for their feelings. I have watched all of the episodes in hope that her character will change, but it did not happen. Another issue that I have with this show is Danny's character. He is a stubborn, misogynist, and primitive guy who always thinks he is right. Making Mindy become a housewife without even consulting her and asking for her opinion on the matter is just absurd. Saying that she cares more about her career than having a family was a huge slap in the face for every mother who has a child/children and is still working and building a career for herself. This show could have been amazing, teaching the upcoming generation how treat, and be treated well. Instead, all it did was tell girls that they need a husband to be happy, that they can't be both mothers and career-women, and taught boys that it is okay to degrade women.

    I'm addicted but I'm left saddened and disappointed with the way things are going on season 5. I know some people are glad to see Danny go but I for one really loved Mindy and him together. I think they both could have and should have come to a mutual beneficial agreement on things instead splitting for good. I'm just getting tired of seeing Mindy whore around while her son seems to always be in the care of someone else. Like that's fine if she wants to be single but just because she's single doesn't mean she has to have a man in her life. Let's just bring Danny back and it could work as far as a good fit for her. I binge watched this show season 1 through 5 all within my Christmas break and I do like it and find myself very eager to watch more hoping for a happy ending.

    My initial thought was, "Wow, this girl gets her own show?" Her shrill little voice and her crazy remarks drove me crazy in The Office, but it wasn't like I completely hated her.I gave the show a shot and what do you know! I'm hooked! She is an OBGYN taking life by the hand and dating it. She dates all of these guys, constantly pokes fun at herself, and sheds light on what it feels like to be a minority. Her love life always seems to have these little kinks to them and her attempts to make the best of them are hilarious. Her coworkers complement her persona in the show which makes it (currently) my all time favorite.Watch it and see what I'm talking about!
