In the penultimate episode of season one of "The Mindy Project," it was time for Mindy to cash in on her fifteen minutes of fame, if only for "Mindy’s Minute." Hey, you gotta take your shot where you can, and it’s hard not to see this episode as a bit do or die, given the show’s still-uncertain future. Only one more show to convince the bigwigs that Mindy is worth keeping around. For what it’s worth, I personally think she is.
Though the show hasn’t quite hit its stride yet, the prognosis is positive. Some shows need time to get warmed up- look at the first season of "Seinfeld" again, if you don’t believe me. Or even Kaling’s first show, "The Office," which needed a little time to separate itself from the original BBC version.
