      Season 1 – The Crazy Ones

      2013 Comedy List
      54% 41 Reviews Tomatometer 67% 100+ Ratings Audience Score Simon Roberts, an unorthodox genius with a big personality, heads an advertising agency that has some of the biggest clients in the world. By his side is his partner -- and daughter -- Sydney, who is focused and ambitious but spends more time than she'd like baby-sitting her father. They work with a talented team that includes handsome Zach, neurotic art director Andrew, and deceptively smart assistant Lauren as -- despite their eccentricities -- they continue to take the advertising world by storm.

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Robin Williams' comic dexterity helps to carry The Crazy Ones, a workplace sitcom that scores a few laughs but sometimes feels too improvised to fully cohere.

      Previous Phil Dyess-Nugent AV Club It's not for people who want to get caught up in a game of "will they or won't they?' but for hardcore aficionados of comic acting. B+ Mar 21, 2014 Full Review Neal Justin Minneapolis Star Tribune No one has benefited more than former "Buffy" star Sarah Michelle Gellar, who brings an engaging mix of frigidness and vulnerability to her role as Williams' TV daughter and business partner in a Chicago ad agency. Feb 12, 2014 Full Review Tim Molloy TheWrap Am I judging TV characters? No. I'm judging show creator David E. Kelley for not giving them more dimensions. Oct 8, 2013 Full Review Jessica Johnson Time Out Chicago It's nice to know the cast is enjoying themselves. It would be better if that sense of amusement extended more to the audience. Jul 2, 2018 Full Review Brendon McCullin By embracing the cray-cray, Kelley could have something special instead of something merely pleasant. Feb 11, 2014 Full Review Brad Oswald Winnipeg Free Press Some people can't get enough of Williams's manic, all-over-the-map, partly improvised comedy style; others, however, might be more inclined to view the veteran comedian and TV/movie star as a commodity best enjoyed in smaller doses.

      Previous Caroline W Wish there were more episodes... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/10/23 Full Review steve d The wonderful cast made the show a treat for as long as we had it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Huge shame this was cancelled, personally I really enjoyed it and could see it having a future, but most of all because its cancellation seems to have played a big part in Robin's downfall. Very talented cast, so glad he and Pam Dawber had the chance to reunite one last time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member The fact that some people don't like this, shows that some people have no sense of humour! This is one of the funniest things I've ever seen Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Just watched the first episode. Sarah was a bit wooden, Robin was a bit historical, James was still a bit gay (foreshadowing MadMen). Looking forward to the next episodes. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I really liked the show. Mork and Mindy was just Robin Williams being hilarious, and a group of straight men. The crazy ones was Robin Williams elevating the ones around him. Really too bad it got cancelled, I really liked it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews Next Post a review
