I never used to particularly enjoy Mork And Mindy. I think I had a problem with Robin Williams being so hairy like an apparently-grown-man but then fucking around like a three-year-old.
I get that he was supposed to be a jester, a fool, bringing the colour and wisdom of childhood back to the grey adults, but the whole man-child thing doesn’t appeal. Never has.
I also didn’t like the way they cut about in a jeep with no roof. Being from Scotland makes this kind of behaviour seem reckless. Do they not have rain in Boulder, Colorado?
I also never liked the name ‘Mork’. To me it sounded like a simpleton attempting to pronounce ‘Mark’. And Mindy was rubbish, she did nowt.
Happy Days was better.
