For the record, I really like The Mindy Project. That's the new show featuring Mindy Kaling (Kelly from The Office), in which she plays an OB/GYN. It's really, really funny. Like, from the very first episode. I highly recommend it.
That said, I wish she weren't an OB/GYN. Because it's freaking driving me crazy:
1) The male/female roles are way off. In the practice, it's 3 men plus Mindy. That is so rare for an ob/gyn practice these days.... but most doctors on TV have to be men, I guess. And the competing midwives upstairs? They're men too! WTF??? How are midwives men???? I could deal with it if it were meant to be a joke, but I don't think it is.
2) They don't seem at all invested in the practice. Mindy and her coworkers will just up and leave for a field trip to a high school without any notice. That is NOT how any medical practice on the face of the Earth actually runs.
3) They don't actually see patients. No, not one patient in the half-season I've watched so far. Well, maybe one.
I like the show and it's really funny, but what was the point of making her an ob/gyn if they're not going to have her do anything even remotely related to being a doctor? Why didn't they just have her work in, like, an office or something?
