The main character of the story is Mindy Lahiri an OB/GYN doctor who was (still is) obsessed with romantic movies as she was growing up, and has not realized yet that what happens in real life is different from what scriptwriters have in their beautiful minds. This naturally leaves her being a mess with troubled love life and a drinking problem. She tries to become more organized, focused and vegetarian, but from what I've seen so far, it won't be an easy task.
|Everybody, meet Mindy Lahiri!|
To sum up, this could have been a good show, if Kaling got someone else to play the part. On the other hand, comedy premiers this Fall are somewhat dull, so if we isolate it from Modern Family, Up All Night, Don't Trust the B-- from Ap. 23 and even 2 Broke Girls, which will return on TV shortly, it's really not that bad: there are a few jokes you can giggle at.
