MultiCultClassics mistakenly thought CBS series The Crazy Ones debuted a few weeks ago. Wish it had—as that would’ve resulted in missing the premiere episode.
If AMC series The Pitch and TNT series Trust Me were stuffed into a trash compactor, the produced garbage would still smell less shitty than The Crazy Ones. The promotional hype calls the show a single-camera workplace comedy. That’s one camera too many—and it’s impossible to identify a single moment that could be classified as comedic. The only positive thing about The Crazy Ones is its 30-minute format. A full hour would have been pure torture.
Mork is a more believable character than Robin Williams’ Simon Roberts. Buffy should be recruited to slay Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Sydney Roberts. Creator David E. Kelley comes off like a staff writer for AgencySpy.
The Crazy Ones bears virtually zero resemblance to the real advertising industry—except in its depiction of a star-fucking, staff-fucking, nepotistic, predominately White agency.
