Did anyone else catch the Season 4 premiere of The Mindy Project on Hulu last night? It was pretty great – one of the best episodes the series has produced and a remarkable feat given the potential cancellation altogehter of the show only a few months ago. The Hulu transition hit seamlessly, allowing much more flexibility for running times and storylines.
This episode in particular hit the romantic-comedy-film tropes that Kaling has always had influence the series, but ran with them full steam, referencing It’s a Wonderful Life, You’ve Got Mail, and While You Were Sleeping. It was a well-written episode, with a great guest performance by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. A very confident season debut, and I look forward to seeing what changes are in store for the series given the change of “network”.
“While I Was Sleeping”: A-
MVP: Joseph Gordon-Levitt / Chris Messina
Edit: Apologies if there was a thread for this that I missed – I did not see one yet started.
Very great and another reason to say stupid FOX because they let go their best show (yes Mindy Project is better than Empire). They’ll regret it when The Grinder and Grandfatherd FLOP
I also thought this was a great season premiere! Luckily, so far it feels like nothing has changed. I’m so happy to see this show back and in such great shape.
