The Crazy Ones…

22 Sep

I was only able to get through about 30 seconds of this at a time.

I loved Mork & Mindy when I was a kid (and still do through the lens of nostalgia) but aside from that, I don’t find Robin Williams very funny. Maybe it was always Pam Dawber that made the show work. I think Williams is a great actor. He’s amazing in the rarely seen Seize the Day. I even think his performance in Robert Altman’s Popeye has a lot of uncredited depth.

Oh, and of course:

Yet, as a comedian, Williams reminds me of someone’s uncle after too much wine at Thanksgiving. Give me Madeline Kahn any day.

    I agree with you that Pam Dawber made the show work. In fact, Robin credits Pam for keeping him in line, which was probably not easy to do.
