it’s already on hulu if anyone wants to watch early! I happened to find James Franco’s character kind of annoying but I don’t see him going anywhere, other than that it was a pretty strong episode, Mindy’s still hilariousSeptember 17, 2013 at 8:25 am #298472
It’s only available to Hulu Plus users. Otherwise, you’ll only see the first 90 sec. of the premiere.September 18, 2013 at 4:26 am #298473
Nice start to the season. I was wondering how the Haiti plot would be disposed of, so I guess that was as good a way to do that as any. Mindy Kaling shined here (she should since she wrote the episode). Some of the subplots could have been funnier (like with Danny and Christina), and you know my feelings already on James Franco. Good to have the show back all the same. I’ll miss Anders Holm! Not as much as the awesome Tommy Dewey, but close enough.

It was a nice premiere but pretty much the same show as last season, which is not a good thing. I thought they would fix some stuff, but there’s Beth Grant again doing absolutely nothing and she’s now in the main credits. So once again we’re left asking why was Gossip Girl girl out? Why was Anna Camp out? If you’re still going to have useless characters… Like the new nurse not knowing who Mindy was? I kind of want to go back and watch her episodes from last season to see her talking to Mindy and interacting with her, there’s no way she’s this stupid or that they wrote a joke so lame. I like the actress and the character though.
Having said that, there’s no way I’m giving this show up, I really, really love Mindy and I like Morgan a lot here.
James Franco was a nice guest, I want to see him and Mindy go at it now that she’s back. But considering he’s Overexposed James Franco, I don’t want to see him here forever.September 18, 2013 at 7:46 am #298475
James Franco was really good. Emmy contender good in my opinion.September 18, 2013 at 8:17 am #298476
This was fun. It is pretty much still the same show from last season, except that it looks like there hopefully won’t be any focus on Mindy’s friends, which, as much as I love Anna Camp, was dragging down every episode in which they appeared. I was glad to see the new nurse in the main credits, because I thought she was really funny last season, but that didn’t really carry over to this episode. It also seems kind of silly to have both her and Beth Grant’s character hanging around, not to mention Betsy, who is also fairly useless. It does still bother me that they got rid of Amanda Setton.
I liked this episode overall, though. Parts were really funny, and they did a good job of getting out of both the Haiti story and the Danny/Christina thing, which frankly I was very surprised they even left us with at the end of last season. I also thought James Franco was great. Interesting little subplot with Jeremy getting pudgy in Mindy’s absence. Mindy, Danny and Morgan were solid, as always.September 18, 2013 at 6:19 pm #298477
Adam Pally who was going to guest star this season has been upped to regular according to Deadline.com
I love love love Adam Pally, but this show doesn’t need anymore regulars. Great casting news because of the actor, but not necessarily the character and the show.
This would be even better if they would get rid of Jeremy who as usual did nothing in the premiere. I hope he doesn’t become as useless.September 18, 2013 at 6:33 pm #298478
Yeah Pallys great but this show has too many regulars. It’s not uncommon for a 22 minute episode to have 5 plots here its already a little crowded.
Can’t I just have Happy Endings back?September 18, 2013 at 7:16 pm #298479
They barely know what to do with the regulars they already have. Not a wise move.September 24, 2013 at 12:47 pm #298480

I liked Mindy’s office wars with Paul and how that all turned out, and now our national ordeal with James Franco on here is finally over. Danny’s side storyline with the single guys at the YMCA was fun, and Kris Humphries didn’t embarrass himself too much (or more than the poor guy’s already been embarrassed). I will miss Chloë Sevingy though. She needs to come back on a recurring basis. I’m surprised that no mention’s been made of Anna Camp’s character yet in these first two episodes. You’d think that Mindy’s BFF would have been around for Mindy’s return from Haiti, emergency surgery, WEDDING, etc. Out of sight, out of mind, I guess lol.

This was good. I mostly agree with Atypical, though I’m not surprised they aren’t mentioning Anna Camp’s character, whose name I can’t remember at the moment. The opening with Mindy in the whipped cream was hilarious.
I’m excited for Adam Pally, even though the cast does seem a little large. I guess we need to stop thinking of characters like Tamara and Beth Grant’s as characters to be focused on and more just people to contribute a couple of soundbites in an episode. It’s really just Mindy, Danny, Morgan, and kindof Jeremy. Betsy also doesn’t matter.
