At last, the complete first season! Spin City is a smart, sophisticated ABC sitcom about the behind-the-scenes workings of City Hall in the biggest city in America. Workaholic Mike Flaherty (Michael J. Fox) is the Deputy Mayor of New York City, serving as Mayor Randall Winston s (Barry Bostwick, Rocky Horror Picture Show) key strategist and much-needed handler. Mike runs the city with the help of his oddball staff: an anxious and insecure press secretary (Richard Kind, Mad About You); a sexist, boorish chief of staff (Alan Ruck, Ferris Bueller's Day Off); an impeccably groomed gay activist running minority affairs (Michael Boatman, Arli$$); a sharp and efficient, man-crazy accountant (Connie Britton, Friday Night Lights); and an idealistic young speechwriter (Alexander Chaplin). Like Mike, they are all professionally capable but personally challenged.

Bonus Features:

* The Spin: The cast and creators look back at how the show began and remember its first season. Includes all-new interviews with Michael J. Fox, Barry Bostwick, Richard Kind, Alan Ruck, Michael Boatman, Connie Britton, and Alexander Chaplin and show creators Gary David Goldberg and Bill Lawrence and more.
* Prime-Time Partners: Highlights of The Paley Center for Media Seminar presented in October 1996.In October 1996, Michael J. Fox and Gary David Goldberg gave a seminar for members of the Museum of Television & Radio (now know as the Paley Center for Media).
* Commentaries by Cast, Creators and Crew

This is one of my favourite comedy series, right up there with News Radio. Its clever and witty, but wouldn't be anything without Michael J Fox. He is just brilliant as the anchor of the show and his character enables all the others to shine just as much as he does.

I can't say enough about how much I love this show, it also has the unique ability to cross borders in that you don't have to be an American or even a New Yorker to appreciate the storyline. I'm an Australian, but I still love the characters and the stories. Just can't get enough of the Spin!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Michael J Fox September 13, 2013

Michael was the reason I gave this show a chance. I fell in love with the characters right off the bat. The first season started off with a bang.

4.0 out of 5 stars Subtitles/Captions February 27, 2009
Format:DVD
Great show, love it. I taped it on VHS. I'm so glad it's on DVD now. Only problem : there are no subtitles or captions for the hearing impaired (or non native english speakers) for whom they're a great help and sometimes the (fake ?) laughs cover the pun or punch line. I hope the next installments will provide this sometimes much needed feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Campaign for great TV! November 4, 2008
Format:DVD
Having made his initial TV debut years earlier as Republican Alex P. Keaton, Michael J. Fox blatantly crossed the political aisle in his triumphant TV return.

Now he is playing Democratic New York Deputy Mayor Mike Flaherty. Flaherty is a curious combination of Al Gore and George Stephanopoulos with lots of requisite/inevitable `Kennedy family' references tossed in.

His boss is Mayor Randall Winston (Barry Bostwick), a more-or-less transparent spoof of Bill Clinton. In terms of physical structure at least, there is a fair resemblance. Vocal-inflection and intelligence, I don't see a comparison, but hey, politics is the game of compromise. You take what you can get.

Basically, this is a small-screen version of Primary Colors: a warm-hearted but satirical look at Democratic politics. And the 24-episode season won't make you incur a personal deficit in order to own it!

A favorite episode is "Kiss Me Stupid" where another childhood crush, Luke Perry returns to his former boyfriend Carter Heywood--with some very important but unexpected news. After having dated each other for a while, Luke's character now dates women, even planning on marriage. Spence Kamer wants Carter to be his best man for this impending ceremony. Perry's apparent comfort with publically delivering `flirty' lines to another man sincerely impressed me, having grown up seeing him merely as a `teen idol'. Instead of Sheen in the later seasons, the production crew for this series should have convinced Perry to sign on as a replacement for Fox. Who knew he was capable of successfully delivering sitcom work? I certainly hadn't.

Being a disability advocate, I easily imagined myself in "Deaf Becomes Her".

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been going through some of the TV shows I remember in the 80's and 90's, so I finally got to this one. I purchased the first four seasons since I liked it when Michael J. Fox was in it, and didn't really care for it after Charlie Sheen arrived and Michael left.

If you're a Michael J. Fox fan, it's a fun show. Very vintage "him", which works great in this show, which is one reason I don't think Sheen worked for me when he took over after MJF left.

It's always fun seeing shows from the pre-cell phone days, a world in which the technology we take for granted now doesn't exist...

Alan Ruck was always a riot in here, his smarmy character so much fun to watch. Richard Kind plays a character reminiscent of the one he played on Mad About You. Connie Britton is always a pleasure to watch.

The stories sometimes can be a little one dimensional, the various arcs through the episodes pretty quickly resolved, but still a fun ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars God Bless America, what took so long???? November 2, 2008
Format:DVD
Us spin city fans have been waiting many years for this to finally come out on dvd. We long ago wore out the DVD's of Mike's favorite episodes, and while they were of course awesome, I didn't think they would ever put out the entire seasons on DVD. It's about time, what a long and leisurely process it has been, when plenty of other less worthy shows immediately go to DVD when they end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spin City Season Sets-Finally!!! August 21, 2008
Format:DVD
This show is an absolute gem,
I can't believe it has taken this long to get a release. Michael J. Fox is fantastic and the chemistry between the entire ensemble was just hilarious and made for such engaging viewing.
I am so glad the 1st season is coming to dvd so I can be amused by City Halls' hijinx time and time again. I do hope all four seasons are released and quickly.
Thank you Spin City cast for classic comedy that delivers everytime I watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very entertaining show! August 4, 2014
Format:DVD
Although I wasn't old enough to enjoy the show on its first run, I've made sure to allocate time to watching any and all re-runs over the years. Eventually I decided that I'd like to be able to watch it on my terms, as many times as I'd like, and therefore decided to pick up this DVD for Season 1.

Focused primarily (mostly) in the New York City Mayor's Office, Michael J. Fox, along with an incredible cast, work to help out New Yorkers, put out political "fires", and develop relationships over the course of the season. The show is very obviously a comedy with sarcasm, satire, puns, put-downs, and every other type of humor utilized in-between spurts of important dialogue and deeper emotions surrounding events such as ongoing romances and hot political topics such as gay marriage (civil rights) and workers compensation.

I've not found a boring/dull episode to date and the show is a fantastic pick-me-up. Sunny days, rainy days, horrible days...pop in the DVD and relax (and laugh)!
