When we met the confident, caddish Jeremy in the pilot, he didn't quite fit in withThe Mindy Project's other flawed, quirky characters. Then he got fat and magic happened.
All of a sudden, Jeremy became a frazzled, insecure teddy bear we all wanted to hold and eat Cheetos with. "I have to say it's been a blast," Ed Weeks tells TVGuide.com. "I think him coming back from hiatus fat was a big catalyst for a lot of the changes. It sort of unlocked a way of playing him ... which I think is A. more comedic for me to play and B.

The Mindy Project went through so many cast shakeups in its first season, it felt like the ever-changing face of Degrassi.

Even the most die-hard Mindy Kaling fans had to acknowledge that The Mindy Project's first season had some flaws. And unfortunately, right when the show seemed to be finding its groove, the season was over. Now, The Mindy Project is back for Season 2 and poised to be the great comedy we always wanted it to be.
The first season of the The Mindy Project suffered from a severe lack of focus. Torn between being a workplace comedy and a meta rom-com, The Mindy Project was a little all over the place. Certain episodes featured so many disjointed story lines that it felt stitched together like a comedy Frankenstein. But even amid the confusion, the show always had enough great jokes — delivered by some of Hollywood's hottest actors — to keep me watching.
