I'm just popping in here to tell y'all about the new Dramedy "The Crazy Ones." It's about a Chicago-based ad agency run by Simon Roberts, played by Robin Williams & his daughter, Sydney, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar. I'm not sure what I'm more excited about; the return of Mork or the return of Buffy!
Robin is his usual crazy/funny/weird self & Sarah is her usual snarky/fashionista/clever self. I don't know if it's going to take off but I loved it! Created by David E. Kelley, who is the guy who brought us L.A. Law, Picket Fences, Chicago Hope, Ally McBeal, The Practice and Boston Legal... among others.
What I also loved was that fact that their first ad pitch is to McDonald's, which if you don't know is hilarious because as a wee one Sarah Michelle did an ad for Burger King and was sued (yes, personally sued) by McDonald's and could not even enter one ...supposedly, ever again. Yet, here we are, 2013 and there is an Awesome shot of Sarah Michelle's profile with the McD's logo behind her.
The pilot episode also featured cameos by Gail O'Grady and the inimitable Kelly Clarkson (as herself).
Check out The Crazy Ones on CBS on Thursdays at 9/8c. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
