The Crazy Ones: Sleeping with the Client

I don't know about you, but I'm not really interested in seeing Robin Williams in a robe after he's been intimate with a client. The fact that Zach also did the same only worsens the situation, but this comedy continues to swirl the drain because I want it to be more. I want it to have substance. I hope that it gets better. But if Hamish Linklater is going to perpetually be the loser who can't do anything right, I'm going to check out. And, as I've been trying to convince myself that I like this show for a while now, I'm going to go ahead and pull the plug now.

The Crazy Ones "Breakfast Burrito Club" (S01E04): Simon is forcing Sydney to take a vacation, so she heads to Hawaii with a women's adventure group. [I don't get it... are we supposed to hate Sydney?] When a meeting gets moved up, she wants to stay and work, and changes her flight. But, they're getting nowhere fast. [I also noticed how perfect Sydney's circles were! and BEFORE the show pointed it out.] Sydney is dreaming of advertising for Dole, but Andrew reads more into it and kisses her. [whaaa???] Because they're stumped, Simon goes to cook at the diner where he worked before he was in advertising, hoping for inspiration. They wind up quitting but some out with an eleventh-hour plan, and Sydney is still able to take her vacation. 

In other office gossip, Andrew is back with Nancy Cardigan, and Zach is crushing on someone. The group convinces Andrew to burn his cardigan. [why wouldn't they let Sydney get her binder??]

The Crazy Ones "She's So European" (S01E05): Simon and Sydney go to a meeting with Helena, a European woman with an e-date service. [I started to think that she was actually from Europe, based on how the other characters were treating her, and that made me confused over why she'd use an advertising agency in Chicago, but eventually I came to agree that she's either living in the US now and that's where her company is based, or she's in the American market.] Sydney worries about what Helena will think of her outfit, while Simon has his own concerns... they use him as an example to create a profile to check out the system. [whoa. 6'2" is internet-speak for 5'8". I know everyone fudges a little, but seriously??] Off the clock, Helena has sex with Zach... AND Simon. [it bothers me that nobody has a problem with her actions... there's more jealousy than upset!] When the guys can't solve their feelings amongst themselves, they turn to Helena, though it's not like she can bring them closure. [I hate Sydney's jeweled collar.]

Andrew has a voice-over meeting, but the talent thinks he's a hippie. When Andrew asks him for a second take, the guy pretty much leaves. [ouch!] Andrew gets a second chance, thanks to Simon, but there are still problems... right up until Andrew stands up to him and earns his respect. [so odd!]
