Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar Need to Get Nuttier in 'The Crazy Ones'

By Brendon McCullin, Hollywood Staff

The general consensus on The Crazy Ones is that the show is all right. It's okay. It's not bad. The issue with those statements is that the show - created by David E. Kelley and starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar - has the components to be more than that. Robin Williams! Buffy! The guy who created Ally McBeal and Picket Fences! Having a group that talented working on a project should equal more than a collective shoulder shrug from the viewing audience. Basically, the outtakes that run over the end credits shouldn't be the funniest part of the show.

Luckily, the show is only halfway through its first season so there's still time for it to grow and realize its unfulfilled potential. The key for all involved is to get a little crazier. By embracing the cray-cray, Kelley could have something special instead of something merely pleasant.
