TMP-a-thon: Season 1: Episode 5 - "Danny Castellano Is My Gynecologist"

4.5 Golden Rings

Strengths include:
  • Mindy calculatingly waking Josh up in the morning wearing his shirt, followed by Josh in Mindy's jeans
  • Mindy & Danny EVERYTHING
  • Beyonce Pad-Thai origin story
  • Finally addressing the Jeremy-Mindy stray relations from the Pilot

Side plot: The Mindy apartment invasion/Jeremy watch-heist kind of puttered out. This could have been an opportunity to really push the envelope. For example, after Betsy passionately confronts Jeremy, they could have spontaneously had sex at Mindy's place.Then, Jeremy leaving his precious watch behind would have been motivated by a greater secret to hide. This unexpected event could have fueled future episodes, for example, providing a stronger reason for why Betsy includes Jeremy in her family visit in the next Thanksgiving episode, and helped better develop Betsy's character.
