CBS's "Crazy Ones" Trailer: How Much Robin Williams Can You Stand?

This is old-school, beardless, 50-miles-a minute, schizophrenic Robin Williams, and honestly, I’m kind of looking forward to “Crazy Ones,” because I do have some nostalgic affection for that Robin Williams, before the family-movie beat dragged him into the comedy sewer. I think there’s still something in the tank, and Sarah Michelle Gellar isn’t so bad, either (that’s not true, but whatever). Williams seems well suited to this pilot, which is about a father and daughter working at an ad agency. He’s manic, but tempered by the fact that he’s on CBS. It reminds me of “Mork and Mindy” Robin Williams, and I’m OK with that.


The rest of the CBS trailers will go up tomorrow, although from what I’ve seen so far, I’m not that impressed.
