Question: With the passing of the legendary TV talents Robin Williams and James Garner, don't you think it would be remiss if the upcoming Emmys didn't do a clips tribute to both of them? Awards shows have an unfortunate habit of dedicating chunks of time to a theme or subject that either makes no sense or ends up really boring. But these two gentlemen, who broke character boundaries and were excellent actors outside their niche personas, deserve special recognition. I just hope the producers of that upcoming show have the smarts to do something special, outside of the "In Memoriam" roll call. Your thoughts? — Karen

Pam Dawber and Robin Williams

Old pals Robin Williams and Pam Dawber have found themselves sitting across from each other on a soundstage nearly 32 years after shooting the final episode of Mork & Mindy, their seminal 1970s sitcom about a hyper but lovable alien from the planet Ork who falls for a charming girl next door.

"Pretty amazing, huh?" says Williams, 63. "Yeah," sighs Dawber, 62, whose guest spot marks her first acting role in 14 years.

The two are shooting a scene for the April 10 episode of Williams's hit CBS comedy, The Crazy Ones, which finds his Simon trying to break things off with the travel writer he's been dating (Dawber). When Simon... read more

Robin Williams, Sarah Michelle Gellar

You might feel like you've just inhaled a 5-hour Energy shot after watching the pilot episode of The Crazy Ones (Thursday, 9/8c), CBS' new comedy that marks the return of Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar to network television. The two play father-daughter advertising team Simon and Sydney Roberts, and in the premiere they're trying to convince their firm's biggest client, McDonald's, not to drop them.

Viewers, not to mention his co-stars, may get whiplash trying to keep up. But that's not the only nutty aspect of The Crazy Ones. Here are... read more

Premise: The smash spin-off from a `Happy Days' episode about a wacky alien from the planet Ork and the sweet-natured woman who teaches him how to adapt on planet Earth. When the show launched in September 1978, it became an instant hit with its mix of frenetic comedy, sci-fi slapstick and a star-in-waiting (master of improv Robin Williams) in the lead. Multiple cast and time-slot changes---not to mention bizarre storylines like Jonathan Winters playing Mork's baby---ultimately alienated fans.
