      Critics Consensus

      Mork & Mindy's extraterrestrial farce proves to be pleasantly daffy, grounded by star Pam Dawber's chemistry with the irrepressibly funny Robin Williams.

      Garry Shelley Sydney Morning Herald It is a pity, however, that the first earthling he meets is Mindy McConnell (Pam Dawber), a painfully boring young thing with a penchant for over-acting. Sep 1, 2021 Full Review Brian Courtis The Age (Australia) Very funny American sitcom, made so by the many talents of comedian Robin Williams. Sep 1, 2021 Full Review John Archibald St. Louis Post-Dispatch TV world is indeed ready for a "Na-no Na-no" creature. Not that there aren't some genuinely funny moments in the premiere. I found several occasions where the writers slipped up and included some humor for the over-14 crowd. Sep 1, 2021 Full Review Robert Bowden Tampa Bay Times Robin Williams could make Mount Rushmore laugh. Sep 1, 2021 Full Review Harold Schindler Salt Lake Tribune "Mork" is Robin Williams, a relative newcomer to television who has turned the show into a virtual tour de force with his wild and hilarious gibberish. Sep 1, 2021 Full Review Win Fanning Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Writer Dale McRaven couldn't have asked for two actors better suited to the brand of gentle, if often penetrating, humor that characterizes this series.
