By the time ABC's Spin City debuted on Sept.17th 1996. Superstar Canadian-American Film & TV icon Micheal J Fox, had already been diagnosed & living with Parkinson's disease(A devastating & progressive neurological disorder that leaves some with it as virtual prisoners in their own bodies.) for at least 5 years!

He'd also battled Alcoholism(related to the despair that often comes with an illness like Parkinson disease.)

Additionally, he also struggled in the early 1990's with a botched film career(Save for, the Back To The Future Trilogy,The Secret Of My Success, Doc Hollywood & late in his run on Spin City,the Dec.1999 Blockbuster Stuart Little.)

So Spin City marked a major comeback for a film/TV vet. Who'd been through a rough decade up to this point. From the very first Episode of the series, you get the idea that Micheal J. Fox doesn't give up easily. The Show really was his to carry. Although his supporting cast-mates do the absolute best to keep up with him.

The Show is all about Micheal J. Fox's comeback to the medium that made him a star in the 1980's with Family Ties.

Highlights/Standouts of this first season include: The Pilot, Dog Day Afternoon, Criss Cross,Meet Tommy Dugan, A Star Is Born, Grand Illusion, The High And The Mighty,The Great Pretender, Bye, Bye Lover & several others.

To Sum Up Spin City: The Complete First Season is simply Micheal J. Fox at his best,Period.

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)!

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.

This kind of show just makes you feel good. The characters are so well cast and the writing is funny. This is Michael J. Fox at his funniest and most endearing. The entire cast works so well together that they are a true joy to watch.

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.
