The Michael J. Fox Show

Series Summary
When Mike Henry gets a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, he decides to put his news-anchor career on hold to focus on his health and family. After five years at home, Mike is growing restless. His family concocts a strategy with his former boss, Harris Green, to get him working again: They'll arrange for Mike to "run into" Green and come up with the plan, himself, to return to work! With Mike back to juggling his work and home lives, things return to the way they were prediagnosis -- but somehow better.

  • Despite a cliché video-journal gimmick that has everyone talking to the camera Modern Family style, which ends up belaboring each point, and schmaltzy life lessons ("Sometimes you underestimate the ones you love") wrapping each of the three episodes I've screened, the Fox Show has an appealingly unforced rhythm to its humor. show more

  • Though the choice to have the characters speak to the camera feels a little tired (and the plotting to have it continue past the premiere is quite contrived), the show is quite possibly one of the funniest new comedies of the season, full of small moments that lead to big laughs. show more

  • The Michael J. Fox Show is not only an enjoyable TV comedy about a likeable guy in a likeable family, it’s not only a step toward wider recognition of a specific disease and of disabilities in general, it’s the return of a primetime icon after years away battling Parkinson’s. show more
