    I know not everyone likes his riffs but "unrelated?" Not at all. There are always threads of relationship. Many are subtle and it is all done so fast that it may sound unrelated but it isn't.

    I enjoyed it more than I expected, and I think it was a stronger pilot/1st ep than the Michael J. Fox Show.

    Robin Williams is one of my favorite actors/comedians. SP set.

    What's unusual about that is the show was created by David E. Kelley, who's known for his one hour dramedies like Boston Legal and Ally McBeal. I've never seen him do anything in the half hour comedy format before.

    OK. Replace unrelated with unfunny. I can take rapid fire subtle humor that is funny like many of the riffs in Happy Endings but Williams just blurts out crap that isn't funny. Changing his voice to make it a different character doesn't make it funny. To each his own.
