That is the name of a new show that is going to be on CBS sometime this year.  It has been, at least, decades since I have enjoyed any situation comedies, other than cartoon versions.  But I will check this one out based on the star power alone.  It stars Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar as a father/daughter workplace team.

What are they working at?  They could be father/daughter evangelical preachers.  Well, maybe that could be funny, now that I think about it.

I guess we’ll see.  I just don’t recall ever seeing Robin Williams not be entertaining.

Wellllll, Patch Adams was pretty bad. But, maybe that was the horrible writing overshadowing his typical over-the-top performance.

I think “Patch Adams” tried to be a cross between dramatic and comedic.  Robin Williams is primarily a comedian, but despite that, he has most often done pretty well in movies that are purely dramatic, e.g., “Good Will Hunting” and “What Dreams May Come”.
