  1. I started watching this 10 episode high-school comedy/dramedy series on Netflix because it pushes a lot of my buttons--inter-cultural issues, Indian culture, Sendhil Ramamurthy. I didn't realize Mindy Kaling (with Lang Fisher) had created it until after I finished. It is both light and funny, and also deals with legitimate trauma and insecurities of both the teen and adult characters. There's an Easy A plotline that's about as raunchy as it gets. The diverse, young cast should have a future--if not in season two, in more TV and movies. As is often the case, I found it interesting that protagonist Devi and her family are practicing Hindus and although Devi finds it "embarrassing" at times to go through the rituals and expresses some doubt as to whether the gods hear her, Devi's friends aren't dismayed and the priest is a kind source of good counsel. Unlike every TV show in which you can count on the Christian minister to be corrupt, stupid, or an outright villain (exception for God Friended Me.) The voice-over narration by an unexpected actor doesn't always work, but the self-aware metacommentary and a few twists are also entertaining, if you just go with it. Recommended for the un-cynical.
