Storyline

Bizarre television comedy with Robin Williams as Mork from Ork, who is an alien sent to Earth in an egg, to investigate Earth and report back to his superiors. As an outsider, Mork is unfamiliar with human customs and often questions some of the strange traditions that we take for granted. Much of the humor relies on Williams' unique comic voices and mannerisms. The show was perhaps most famous for Mork's greeting, 'Nanu Nanu.' Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Now THIS is what I call a sitcom!
4 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although I'm not really a 70's kid, I still appreciate TV shows/movies from back then as well as today's entertainment. I really love this show, and guess what? I have never seen it before in my entire life! First of all, you have Robin Williams, one of the best and most talented actors in all of Hollywood. No one---absolutely no other living soul---could ever outsmart him in playing the role of an eccentric alien from an unknown planet with a silly name such as "Ork." Robin is just very good at what he does best. Some of you may think otherwise, but he definitely is one of the greatest comedic actors of his time. Secondly, you have the lovely and charismatic Pam Dawber, on whom I'm not afraid to admit I have a small girl crush. She's just so pretty and her voice is totally gorgeous, and I think she and Robin have perfect chemistry with each other on the show. Once you watch this show, I'm pretty sure you'll love it. You may not like Robin Williams, but I'm just putting this out there for ya'll---he's just very great at what he does best.
