Melissa Reneé Martin,
It's 1970's Hollywood and a future movie star was on the horizon and looking for his big break. His name is Robin Williams and he's an up and coming comic on the Los Angeles comedy circuit. While on the other end of town, producer Garry Marshall and partner Harvey Severson have developed a new show called Mork & Mindy, that's a spinoff to their previous hit show "Happy Days". It's in their meeting with Williams that they have found the ideal actor to play Mork. But as the show slowly turns into a hit, the story of what happened behind the camera unfolds as a young comic is suddenly handed everything he ever wanted very quickly, which affected his personal life as well as those in it. Set against the backdrop of Mork & Mindy, this is a story about a show's rise to number one, it's struggles on the production, and the rising star of Robin Williams. Written by
I just watched this show, and the whole time I was wondering if it was robin Williams playing himself. Of course it would have to have been around the years after Mork and Mindy. I did not think that this show was a recent production, it seemed as it was made in the early 80's.
The energy and character that Chris brings out is captivating and draws one to attention. The voice, the actions... everything is almost identical to Robin.
The acting is superb and the characters are identical. It looked exactly like the Mork and Mindy set. If you have any chance to watch this show, do so.
The only negative comments I have with this show is the actor playing John Belushi. The whole feel to John just did not seem right and I was somewhat disappointed with his portrayal.
