Spin City: Season 4
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Michael J. Fox reprises his role as New York Citys Deputy Mayor Mike Flaherty, who acts as the slick support system to newly announced Senatorial candidate Mayor Randall Winston (Barry Bostwick). But with a Senate seat on the line and a city to run, Mike is forced to hire a (blonde and beautiful) campaign manager to help lighten the load.
Heather Locklear joins the Spin City cast as sophisticated and sexy campaign manager Catlin Moore who partners up with Mike. Together they become a combustible pairing who for some reason cant seem to get out of each others way. Meanwhile, Mikes staff are forced to adjust to a new kink in the office hierarchy.
While it would not be the last we would see of Mike Flaherty, Season Four would be Michael J. Foxs final season as a Spin City regular and would earn him his career fourth Emmy win for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

This show went off the air in 2002. If you happen to catch it in reruns, only watch the MJF episodes. I personally consider the Charlie Sheen years to be a completely different show, not worthy of comment. Michael J. Fox is a terrific actor. The supporting cast for this show were a sharp, witty team. However, for some reason the secretary Stacy was replaced by Heather Locklear. Heather really killed this show,it was almost dead even by the time MJF left. When she was added, all the other charactars were pushed to the background and we hardly ever saw them anymore. Instead, we saw a lot of Locklear interacting with Michael in a strange, contrived way. Then when Michael J. Fox left, they brought Charlie Sheen in. Charlie Sheen was awful & not suited for the role, but at this point the show was unbearable to watch because of Locklear's questionable acting abilities and the way the other cast members which had dwindled to four, counting the Mayor - were shown only once maybe twice per show. If Locklear had not been brought in and the other cast members had remained with the show, this show "might" have been able to survive even without Fox, although not likely as Michael J. Fox Was the show.
Spin City 1 through 4 are a must watch. Loved it.
Volume needs to be adjusted up or down as the different episodes play.
What is an appropriate volume setting for one episode is so quiet that it can't be heard in the next episode.
The episode after that, the volume is so loud that you jump out of your seat.
You can also catch SPIN CITY in reruns on the LAFF network.
They changed the packaging. I dislike this change. Probably did it to cut costs. It's in this clear plastic case that holds all 4 dvd's. It has two 'wings' that hold the dvd's. It's harder to take out the dvd's.
It is no longer 2 small cases enshrined with a hard paper cover.
I liked the uniformity of before and it would have looked better once the collection was finished. I wished they wouldn't have switched the packaging.
After the Winston administration turns down the likes of James Carville (!) she is hired on.
But Caitlin isn't as smooth as she sells herself as--she's bankrupted the campaign coffers (The Mayor May Not). So the Senate race is ultimately abandoned. But for some reason, Caitlin remains around City Hall, inadvertently getting into things which have nothing to do with the now-abandoned race.
Despite originally wanting to find out what dirt Caitlin had on him (All the Mayor's Men) a recurring theme throughout this season becomes the office crush which the two powerful personalities have on each other.
It reaches such apparent proportions that Mike even travels to Paris to stop Caitlin from getting married to another man (An American Deputy Mayor in Paris). Then our woman-crazy protagonist sincerely pledges to abstain from sex for a week (The Commitments). It will allegedly prove to Caitlin that he is serious about 'their' relationship.
Mike self-realized that the thought of Caitlin dating somebody else--such as that ex-husband--drove him nuts (Suffragette City). Comedy drama between Fox and Locklear built up an actually deccent series subplot.
Unfortunately, all good things come to an end. And this is the last good season of Spin City. To prevent the Mayor from inadvertently being taken down in a City Hall scandal, Mike takes the fall and resigns (Goodbye 1 & 2).

I love this series, too bad Michael J. Fox had to leave at the end of this season. Be ready to pay attention to the dialog or it won't be so funny.Published on March 21, 2014 by Robsy
