R.I.P. Robin Williams (1951-2014)

Upon hearing of Robin’s Williams’s death earlier this week, a number of memories immediately flashed through my mind:

Friend Like Me” from Disney’s Aladdin.

Williams’s take on humanity in Mork and Mindy.

His guest appearance on Whose Line Is It Anyway?

And then I remembered how I felt after watching the first episode of his new (now cancelled) show, The Crazy Ones – disappointed. Though there was still life in his star, it was an improper stage for his talents. He was much more well suited in larger-than-life roles.
