Snow in April—that’s just crazy! At least all of yesterday’s dusting has already melted. The current TV season is starting to wind down a bit, with more and more shows airing their season finales. Tonight, there are four of them on the major networks. However, I’m sure there will be many other shows starting up next week that are eagerly waiting to take those free spots on your DVR.
Tonight is the one-hour season finale of The Crazy Ones. Last week, Simon had just started a relationship with a new woman named Lily (guest star Pam Dawber), and the two were really hitting it off. At the same time, Gordon’s love life was falling apart—his partner of over 20 years had decided to leave him due to his lack of spontaneity. Simon helped Gordon win back his partner, which culminated in Gordon singing a karaoke version of “Wrecking Ball,” but in the process, he ruined things with Lily. Meanwhile, Andrew and Zach managed to pawn the office pariah off on Sydney while they were coming up with a pitch for the Google Glass-like “Smart Specs.”
It was a lot of fun seeing Robin Williams and Pam Dawber reunited on-screen, and they even threw in a couple of fun Mork & Mindy references for the fans. I’ve really enjoyed this series—the cast is hilarious and work well together. I especially enjoy the outtakes they have at the end of each episode. I hope tonight’s episodes are not the last of the series, but the odds don’t sound too good, especially since a month ago, CBS announced renewals for all but 3 of their series, and this was one of the few left out.
On tonight’s first episode, “The Monster,” Simon’s team comes up with a radical way to save a library, and Gordon serves as the campaign’s reluctant poster boy. Then in “The Lighthouse,” the ad agency faces a buyout, and Simon’s ex-wife has the deciding vote. Marilu Henner guest stars.
Check out the final two episodes of the season (series?) tonight on CBS at 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, Community, Parks and Recreation, Hollywood Game Night, Parenthood, Surviving Jack, and Sirens.
