AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic 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.

Fellow employees include easygoing Zach (James Wolk); neurotic Andrew (Hamish Linklater); and unexpectedly smart Lauren (Amanda Setton).

Critic Reviews for The Crazy Ones: Season 1

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (20)

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.

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.

By embracing the cray-cray, Kelley could have something special instead of something merely pleasant.

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.

Am I judging TV characters? No. I'm judging show creator David E. Kelley for not giving them more dimensions.

The Crazy Ones' opener is funny, charming and a bit different from anything else on CBS right now.

Audience Reviews for The Crazy Ones: Season 1

Too goofy and lighthearted for its own good, The Crazy Ones delivers plenty of laughs but doesn't quite know when it's taking its jokes too far. Created by David E. Kelley, the series follows the ad campaigns and office shenanigans of Simon Roberts and his advertising company. Robin Williams leads the cast and delivers his trademark stand-up comedy (which is hit-and-miss). And, the cast as a whole is pretty weak (with the exception of Sarah Michelle Gellar). Yet, there are a lot of fun comedy sketches and some clever advertising satire throughout the episodes. A mediocre workplace sitcom, The Crazy Ones is entertaining but feels disjointed and cartoony at times.
