Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, aside from her medical credentials, The Mindy Project's Mindy is a far cry from a positive role model for impressionable teens, thanks to a pattern of self-destructive behavior when it comes to men and relationships. Sexual activity is mostly suggested, although characters kiss, make out, and joke about sex and relationships (including hook-ups and one-night stands) and use terms like "penis," "hook up," and "slut." Characters also use words like "hell" and "damn," but a few stronger words (like "f--k") are bleeped. There's social drinking, too, with some drunkenness that's played for laughs, along with light physical comedy.
