Script review for SMG's The Crazy Ones. "Imagine if Mad Men's Don Draper existed in the present day. He's still an advertising genius, using profound presentations to make last-minutes campaign saves, but now he's maybe a little crazy."

I'm still interested, sounds good.

I kind of want to see Buffy meet Mork.
Hmm... Don Draper's always an odd character in that some people still don't realize he's supposed to be a bit of a tragic figure and that he's glamorizing something he's really not. I think of a flawed Don Draper and think... wait... MORE flawed?

Also, really not enthused about a title that stigmatizes mental disorder further IN the title. I do sometimes wonder when the other shoe will drop with that demographic (roughly 10% of the population REPORTS it). With this centuries focus on cutting out derogatory language from women, to GLBT, to physical handicap, I find something unbelievably anachronistic about the continued free and easy use of words like "crazy."
I'd watch SMG sell fruit and veggies is she were so inclined, so I am in for this.
