So I watched the first two Mindy Projects back to back and it was too much for me. Too much Mindy! I always thought I liked Mindy Kaling but The Mindy Project is making me reconsider that assumption as false.

She talks so much! She's constantly talking, and when she pauses, it's so the other characters can give her new talking points so she can resume. That voice is white noise. After a while, I don't hear the jokes anymore, I just zone out. Suddenly, I'm not fast forwarding commercial breaks because the commercials are a sweet relief from hearing Mindy talking.

Normally, I'd write a few words about the plot but I have no idea what's going on.* I don't think The Mindy Project is for me, fellas.

P.S. I did like when she was punched in the face.

We will agree to disagree here. I think Mindy's mile-a-minute stream of consciousness works, especially when paired with Danny's more subdued, condescending attitude. I actually wound up liking this episode a lot more than the pilot, just because of their chemistry.

It also helps that the lady friend seems to really like this show. It may be a girl thing.

After two, I'm not having Mindy, but I do like Ben & Kate. They aren't characters, that's a different show. I also took on New Girl. Need to restock the sitcom depth chart with 30 Rock, The Office, How I Met Your Mother, and probably Community all ending.

I already love Ben & Kate, too, but was surprised that I enjoyed Mindy so much as well. I was skeptical, but accidentally caught a few minutes of the first episode and find myself laughing out loud, so I DVRed the second episode and pretty much loved it.

I actually watch all four of Fox's Tuesday comedies, which is the first time I've watched an entire block like that since I was a kid. So good on them, I guess.

You know, for the life of me I can't tell the three girls from "The Girls Next Door" appart to save my life. Then again, maybe the allure comes that you don't actually have to?
