    Season 1 showed potential, but season 2 failed to deliver on it and took many steps backward. Adding uninteresting characters instead of fleshing out the existing one was a poor decision, so was trying to dumb the show down which not only made it utterly mediocre but also failed to expand its audience.

    If Kaling focused more on playing her characters off each other and less on her heroine's mishaps, The Mindy Project would make for a smoother, more consistently engaging series.

    These couple of episodes give hope that Kaling the writer means to continue to skewer her character’s fantasies with the same combination of intelligence and acid wit as before.

    There’s precious little in the two-part premiere to suggest much room for growth, creatively or ratings-wise, in season two.
