  • Underrated/ Constantly Improving

    9.0
    This show started off shaky, but with promise. And it has truly flourished. Almost every episode has been better + funnier than the previous one. As they venture further into the absurd and the characters continue to develop, it just gets richer, stranger and more endearing. Williams is at his best here and Gellar deserves the People's Choice Award she just won for playing Sydney. What a great show it's becoming. :)moreless
  • Great show, but...

    8.0
    When I found out Robin Williams was getting back into TV after being away from so long, I was absolutely excited to see him again. I watched al ot of his movies and stand up, and wondered when he was going to give TV a chance again. I watched the first episode, and was not disappointed as Robin was vintage Robin. Didn't know much about Sarah or the others, but was willing to sit down and judge for myself. After a period of time, Sarah has gotten more comfortable in her role, James Wolk is excellent and has the potential to be the next breakout star. Hamish and Amada are good, and both have the opportunity to go very far, especially Hamish. His low key style of comedy plays well off Williams' wild, frenectic style. If done right, this show has the potential to be on the air for the forseeable future.



    One thig is missing however. On the show, it is mentioned that Sydney has a mother. It would be awesome if she actually were on the show. Their is an actress out there, who hasn't been on TV for a while that would be perfect for the role, and that is Robin's former co-star on Mork and Mindy, Pam Dawber. Pam could easily fill the role and to me, the show would be even better. If CBS can find other actors to make guest appearances on the show, they can certainly give Pam a shot at either a guest shot, ot better yet, a contract role. Both Robin and Sarah have requested Pam, and CBS ought to be able to make it happen.



    The Crazy Ones is certainly a keeper, and I hope it lasts the season and gets renewed. A solid cast makes the show a winner.moreless
  • Potential to go either way!

    I watched the pilot more out of mild curiosity and I must admit to being pleasantly surprised. Don't get me wrong the sometimes cringy over-ranting from Robin Williams can be tedious, it is kept to reasonable short measure throught the pilot episode. How well it is contained through an entire season is anyone's guess.

    SMG is the potential weakest of the bunch in my opinion. Though I did enjoy her on Buffy (S1- 5 then she really seemed to stop caring) I have always found her stiff as an actress, particularly in comedic roles/situations. The actress herself has admitted to the fact she is uncomfortable laughing on camera and for me that discomfort really shines through in her performances sometimes. However she does elicit a certain charm and flares of genuine humour at certain moments during the pilot. Fingers crossed this carries on and she grows more comfortably into the role.

    Overall I did find myself laughing and cringing but in a good way so I guess the show had the desired effect. I shall however be watching on cautiously.moreless

    Love seeing Robin Williams every week, but Sarah Michelle Gellar needs to grow up. The daddy-didn't-have-time-for-me pity party is getting old fast.
