|Dr. Danny and Dr. Mindy|
The show is just slaying me right now. And the interesting thing is that I started watching it in the middle of last season which was their second season and my appreciation didn't kick in until now. I think I know why, but more on that later.
I found the first season at the library and had a marathon session over a several day period and just fell in love, head over heels in love. Dr. Mindy Lahari is an OB-GYN in NYC and the show is set at her practice with a collection of oddballs. Really well defined odd ball characters that add immensely to the mix. She also happens to be of Indian descent and not a size 2. As you know this is not the norm for a main female character in a sitcom. There are blogs devoted to her character's fashion choices. All very inspiring as I am not a size 2 either.
The Mindy Project is so well written and fast paced that I have to rewind it to catch the jokes. There was a bit where the character Morgan, the male nurse, high on a marijuana cupcake does a dive into what he thinks is the pool, and hits the ground with a thud. I had to pause the show and just laugh. A fantastically hard belly laugh. I think the reason I never caught on to how good it was because of distraction. I find myself watching a tv show, even one that I enjoy immensely while I'm on the internet - AT THE SAME TIME.
I wasn't paying attention.
That says something about my obsession with web surfing, being able to relax and I'm taking note.
Focus on one thing at a time.
When I don't focus on one thing at at time, stay in the present moment, I miss things. I have found that when I'm really tired, I don't know how to disconnect. My mind races and I go from website to website filling my head with trivial information. When what I need to do is just sit still, rest the brain and decompress.
What really appeals to me about Dr. Lahari's character is that she owns herself, unapologetically. She is who she is. She doesn't fret, she just plows forward even if it is misguided.
And the show is hilarious.
I'm also obsessed with Dr. Danny too! Or shall I say Diamond Dan.
