Did You Know?

Trivia:
Pam Dawber did not audition for the role of Mindy. To sell the show to the network, Garry Marshall edited clips together of Dawber's performance from a failed ABC series entitled "Sister Terri," with existing footage of Robin Williams', earlier guest appearance as Mork on "Happy Days" (1974). ABC was sold on the idea and the show was picked up. Dawber later learned she had been cast in the series via industry trade paper "Variety."See more »
Quotes:
Mork:If Holly liked him so much, how come she punched him and told him he was weird.
Mindy McConnell:Boys and girls often punch or push or hit each other as a sign of affection.
Mork:Punching and pushing and calling someone names means you like them?
Mindy McConnell:Yeah, it can.
Mork:Then the cowboys and Indians are lovers?

Great show up to the point Mork and Mindy got married., 14 February 2010
Author: Aaron1375

The television show "The Happy Days" had an episode which is used in many shows. It is called "jumped the shark", basically an episode that is the beginning of the end for a show as this is the point in the show that the ratings start to go down and the episodes become really weak. Sometimes there is room for debate as to when this happens in a show, and sometimes it is hard for me to say when it occurred for a particular show. However, it is easy for this one, it is when Mork and Mindy got married. After that the show just got to bizarre with the birth of their child and the strange way the show ended. I would think there was some rule that all shows involving aliens ended with an ending that really did not conclude the show in a satisfying way. "Alf" had the same kind of end, however I do believe "Third Rock from the Sun" ended in a more conclusive way. This show was great though up until that point as this is one of the few Robin Williams vehicles that I enjoyed watching. His energy and craziness does not detract from this show as it often does in his movies, but rather enhances it. Pam Dawber plays the perfect straight woman to his madness as she must withstand an onslaught of questions and trying to get him used to things on our planet. Sometimes the show got a bit to sappy, and at others downright strange, but for the most part the show worked. There was even one that was a bit scary when I saw it as a child where a house was haunted and Mork got possessed or something. Then there was the strange one where he shrunk that was oddly unfunny when he was in the strange universe. However, my favorite episodes were the simpler ones. One of my favorite gags was when he learned about arguments from some guy who owned a deli with his sister and how great it was when they made up so Mork proceeds to start a fight with Mindy by taking the spaghetti she made for dinner and slamming it against the wall yelling "You expect me to eat this slop!". When Mirth was born the show was just becoming to strange as I did not care for the fact Mork got pregnant as he may have been an alien and they may have been able to give birth, but what exactly could Mindy have done to get him that way? Basically, a great show for three seasons that got to weird its fourth.
