Robin Williams is getting ready to play Mrs Doubfire again!
April 17th, 2014 under Robin Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Even though it has been 20 years since Mrs Doubtfire came out, that isn’t stopping Fox 2000 from doing a sequel to the movie according to The Hollywood Reporter. Although this has been in the works for over a decade, the sequel finally has a writer with a plan that is good enough to get Robin Williams and Chris Columbus to want to do it. The question really is, should they? I love the original and just don’t know if it needs a sequel. The only feasible plot I could see is if Williams’ character opened a business teaching other men how to dress up like a housekeeper so they can see their kids too. Other than that, I don’t see how they will be able to clean house at the Box Office with it.
Now having said all of that; if the movie has Robin Williams, then I am going to see it.


Pam Dawber & Robin Williams talk about reuniting on tonight’s The Crazy Ones!
April 10th, 2014 under Robin Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 9:30p on CBS, it is reunion that is almost 32 years in the making, Mork & Mindy aka Robin Williams and Pam Dawber are reunited on his show The Crazy Ones.
I was on a conference call with my childhood idols earlier this week, and Pam said to us, “If people want to see Mork and Mindy back together, then they’re going to see Mork & Mindy back together.” To which Robin responded with a sexy smile by saying, “Big time!” Robin’s response to that could be because he spoiled us about the first scene he has with his former-TV wife. He said, it is something they couldn’t do on Mork & Mindy, so he was like “Welcome back!”
And welcoming her back is something he lovingly did because he told us, “It’s kind of wonderful just to see Pam after so long. She looks the same which is so so wonderful. I was like ‘Wow!’” Wow, is right because she looks just like she did when their sitcom ended back in 1982. And he has aged just as beautifully.
And it was also like welcoming back an old friend when they worked together, or as Pam put it “It was like an old shoe.” To which Robin added, “Some of them more loosely, it’s nice that way.”
In fact, it was seeing her old friend that convinced to her do the show and she said she didn’t do it to be back on TV. She told us, “I was so excited to be with Robin, to see Robin, then to potentially work with Robin. That’s why I did it, not to get back in to Show Business.” Even though she isn’t jumping back into the acting saddle, she let us know she wouldn’t mind returning to the sitcom if they asked her to be on it again. So when CBS makes the smart decision to pick it up for a second season, they better find a few episodes for her to guest star on.
So what did they talk about when they got together on the set? Pam said they were talking about their recently deceased TV son, Jonathan Winters, and she told Robin that they are actually older now then he was when they worked with him on the show. Back in 1981, she thought he was an old dude. Robin then added that they now have children that are as old as they were when they started on Mork & Mindy, to which Pam responded by saying, “You do…” Her oldest son is about 2 years younger than she was when she started on the show.
She told us, that that son asked her a few years ago when he was going to meet her former-TV husband. So when she went to the set she brought him along to meet him. It was a life memory for him, so it obviously went well.
As I mentioned, when I was kid I worshiped Mork & Mindy. So I was beyond excited when I asked them a question and Pam shared a very memorable experience from the show. She told us a story about when they went to Boulder, Co, before the first episode aired, to shoot the opening for Mork & Mindy no one cared that they were there. Then when they went back for season 2, “It was like the freaking Beatles were in town.” They’re lives were forever changed because of their alien/human love story.
I have to tell you when I was kid, all I wanted to do was be friends with them. After talking to them both on that conference call on Monday, I want to be friends with them even more. Robin as we know is the funniest man in the world, and Pam was so down to Earth (no pun) that you couldn’t help but love her.
And you are going to love love love seeing them together again on The Crazy Ones tonight at 9:30p on CBS!


Robin Williams goes from being the crazy one to The Angriest Man in Brooklyn!
April 4th, 2014 under Robin Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Robin Williams will be back on the big screen this Memorial Day Weekend in The Angriest Man in Brooklyn and it looks like he is going back to what he does best on it. After a string of dark Independent films, it is nice to see him go back to comedy. At least for me it is, so I will be there on May 23rd to see him make me laugh! Just like he does every Thursday on The Crazy Ones.


OMG! Brad Paisley punched Josh Groban in the face!
April 2nd, 2014 under Josh Groban, Robin Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Brad Paisley is going to be a guest star on The Crazy Ones tomorrow night at 9:30p on CBS, and he gets to punch Josh Groban right in his wheelhouse? After watching this clip from the episode, it is understandable why the country star did that to crooner. I mean if I ever hear Groban sing like that again, I would hit him in his kisser too. Seriously, who knew the tenor could raise his voice that high? Well technically he can’t, but still who knew?
One thing we do know for sure is that tomorrow’s episode of The Crazy Ones is going to be a crazy good one!!!


Shazbot! Buffy shared a picture of Mork & Mindy!
January 25th, 2014 under Freddie Prinze Jr / Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robin Williams. [ Comments: 1 ]

Earlier this week CBS announced that Pam Dawber is going to guest star on Robin William’s show The Crazy Ones. Well yesterday Sarah Michelle Gellar Tweeted a picture of Mork & Mindy together again on the set and it is pure happiness. I haven’t been able to stop smiling since I’ve seen the photo. Just like the huge smile I have on my face after I watch their show from the ’70s and The Crazy Ones.
No word when the episode will air, but I am sure when it airs it will be the first of many times we will be watching it. At least I know I will be watching it over and over, just like I’ve seen every episode of Mork & Mindy and Buffy the Vampire Slayer more times than I count.
Finally, can you believe that Pam Dawber is 62 years old because she looks just as beautiful now as she did when we got to know her as Mindy back in 1978. Seriously, can you believe that show debuted over 35 years ago?


OMG! Mork & Mindy will be reunited on The Crazy Ones!!!
January 23rd, 2014 under Robin Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Pam Dawber is going to guest star on her former-co star, Robin Williams’ new show The Crazy Ones and I am crazy excited about seeing Mork & Mindy together again.
According to Keck’s Exclusives, Dawber will play “Lily, an author of travel memoirs who catches the eye of Williams’ ad agency exec, Simon. The two meet at a signing for her latest book, Ninety Countries, 90 Dances! Instantly smitten, Simon falls for this adventurous free spirit who seems up for anything.” Hopefully Mrs Mark Harmon is up for staying on the show for more than one episode. That’s because TV Guide also points out this is her first TV appearance since 1999. And you know what she looks exactly the same because she never ever ages.

The Crazy Ones is finger licking good tonight!
November 14th, 2013 under Robin Williams. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 9p an old account comes back to life on The Crazy Ones. I can’t put my finger on it, but this is the best episode of the show’s run so far.
Thanks to YouTube, one of Simon’s (Robin Williams) first ads, Mr Finger, is popular again and now the company wants to bring him back. So Roberts & Roberts find Mr Finger (Ed Asner) and he thinks that Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) has a crush on him. That will lead to a very awkward moment between the two of them.
Mr Finger isn’t the only one back, Roberts & Roberts silent partner, Gordon Lewis (Brad Garrett) comes for a visit. He is there for two reasons, one to get away from his husband’s juice cleanse and the other to find out about a mystery client. That mystery client is a used car dealership and they can’t have two of them. The first one was their first client and he doesn’t make any money, so Gordon wants them to drop them. Simon doesn’t want to do it, but reluctantly he agrees to do it. So Roberts & Roberts decide to help him go out with a bang and sell all of his cars. Which in the process gives us this amazing photo of James Wolk as seen below. And that isn’t even the best thing you will see on this episode. Imagine Brad Garrett driving a convertible Miata, it is as awesome as you think it would be. What is also awesome is the interaction between Williams and Garrett.
So tune in for an episode that gives you a finger.


BTWF roles: Robin Williams on The Richard Pryor Show

He looks
Before Robin Williams was sent from Ork to explore Earth on Mork & Mindy, he was an Earthing exploring Earth on The Richard Pryor Show. Even when he was 25 in that 1977 sketch comedy, you could tell he was the comedic genius he is today!


You’ll be crazy for The Crazy Ones!
September 26th, 2013 under Robin Williams. [ Comments: none ]

When I was a little girl, I watched a show called Mork & Mindy and developed a crush on an actor named Robin Williams. Now I am grown woman and that love is still there. So when I heard he was coming back to TV on weekly basis in a show called The Crazy Ones, I went crazy for the idea. Then I watched the pilot as soon as I got it and I have watched it more times than I count since then.
I am so happy that tonight at 9p on CBS, you will get to see this show that I can’t stop watching over and over and over again. Not only because Robin Williams is in it and because it was created by the brilliant David E Kelly, but because it is a feel good show that everyone can enjoy and fall in love with it. It is what Robin Williams is, that lovable guy who just makes you smile when you see him and/or think about him.
On tonight’s season premiere the top advertising agency, Roberts & Roberts, is fighting to keep their account with McDonald’s and all the fast food chain wants to do is fire them. So the unorthodox and charming Simon (Williams) reminds them of that warm feeling people got with the You Deserve a Break Today campaign and tells them they should modernize for today’s consumer. Well that feeling when you hear the music that was in that real ad and the smile the images brought to your face when you saw them, well that is the emotion you will get when you watch this show.
Or maybe it is just the way that Williams plays Simon. Now Simon runs the agency, but he is not the only person who works there or on the show. Simon’s daughter, Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is the creative director and she’s much different than her dad. She is much more serious and by the book. She is the Yin to her father’s Yang and it because of that the company is still around. And it is their relationship that will keep you turning into this show.
Then there is Zach Cooper (James Wolk) who is a young Simon, he is suave, charming and a lady killer. It is for all of those reasons that Simon has made him his right hand man and when they are together you know that there is going to be trouble. And sometimes trouble can be a good thing.
Lauren (Amanda Setton) is the assistant and she has fallen under Simon and Zach’s spell and Sydney tries to keep grounded. It is also her na├»vety that reminds Simon who he was and who he is.
So today they will all get together and try to save McDonald’s and somehow Kelly Clarkson becomes the meat in their Big Mac. So be prepared to see a different side of her tonight. A side, I personally love and hope she considers taking on.
So as McDonalds once said “You deserve a break today”, so why not get it with The Crazy Ones tonight and every Thursday 9p on CBS.
The best way for me to sum up this show is that back when I was a senior in high school, I had to decide whether to major in advertising or journalism. So I watched a movie called called Crazy People, and I majored in Advertising. Then when I graduated, I went into journalism and never looked back. That is until I watched the pilot for The Crazy Ones and now I am suddenly unsure if I made the right choice to not go into advertising.
