I think this show would be a lot funnier if it was filmed in front of a studio audience. The lines and the scenese are so fast moving, sometimes it's hard to digest some of the funny lines because they've moved on to another line or even another scene. If it was slowed down a bit and in front of a studio audience, it would give viewers time to digest what was said, especially with Robin.

I watched the season premier of Mike and Molly last night. My wife and I really enjoy the show. I laughed more last night than I did through all the episodes of The Crazy Ones. It was a cobination of better writing, funnier characters, and better delivery.

"Out of the 2", I feel the Michael J Fox show could possibly benifit more from a live audience / backround laughter for the reasons you mention above .. however the Crazy Ones has somewhat of an Ally McBeal feel to it, ( Kelly, I know) & is "OK" to me for that reason .....

I agree, slow down the dialogue. Many people have told me they quit watching Crazy ones because they cant make out what is being said.

+1, I would enjoy this show a whole lot less if I didn't watch it via DVR where I can repeat things as well as have CC on. Still don't catch(or understand) everything but helps a lot.

Robin is one ugly transvestite, but I did enjoy the show tonight.

To anyone interested in a Google Chromebox or Chromebook..
Be aware that these boxes run a variant of Linux and DO NOT support HDCP!!!
This means no support for HD on most streaming services. I wish I would have known this beforehand....

Blu-rays & DVD's

One of the true greats! PBS had a nice documentary featuring him and a few other comedians, didn't realize how far he went back, I first remember him in Mork and Mindy.

I first remember him on the 1970s’ reboot of Laugh-In, but still,
