'The Mindy Project'
Mindy Kaling helped goose The Office along as perpetually lovesick Kelly Kapoor before landing her own show – the underrated (and poorly named) The Mindy Project. This smart variation on the workplace sitcom follows Kaling's "Mindy Lahiri," an OB/GYN trying to balance her personal and professional life amid a band of misfit co-workers and an endless parade of suitors. Can comparisons be made to her previous gig? Sure. But this "project" – now heading into its third season – puts Kaling center stage. Still needy and neurotic, there's a more grown-up feel to the show, beyond the actress sporting a stethoscope and lab coat. Get ready to dig in, as Kaling's confidence and comedic chops grow more consistent each season.
