The MIchael J. Fox Show
 
Michael J. Fox is my favorite actor ever, and the announcement of his show caused me to pass out. It has lived up to my expectations. Does anyone else love him/the show as much as I do??

I love him.

However his show suffers from the worst the worst few things possible in a TV show.

It's boring.
It's characters are blah.

And worst, it's not funny. it's sweet and nice and everything, but it's just not funny.

It needs some retooling, but I think it's funny. His boss and his sister drag the show down.

Agree. Michael J. Fox is not the problem. It definitely needs retooling in both the cast and the series structure including writers. As difficult as it might be for Fox, maybe it needs to be taped live in front of a studio audience.:shrug:

I love MJF but this show isn't entertaining unfortunately.

Being a big Back to the Future fan (and to a lesser extent, Family Ties) I was excited to watch this series with Michael J. Fox. And after a very satisfying ending to Breaking Bad I was even looking forward to seeing Betsy Brandt again.

It was such a letdown. It was definitely very blah. A few chuckles here and there is all it has gotten from me.

I like MJF but the show is mediocre. Just not that funny

It was brave move for Michael, but how long will it be before Rush Limbaugh starts ripping him to shreds again?

Ripping him to shreds seems dramatic.

That implies that Rush won or had a cogent point of view.

He was just crude and mean.

That's because Rush is a fat lazy druggie who has to take his self hatred out on others.

Everyone with a heart loves MJF.

I found it mildly funny, but there's nothing there that makes me want to watch more. Two episodes in I was already kind of over it. Which is a shame, because I usually give average shows much longer than that to win me over.

Definitely needs some retooling with some more interesting characters. I don't feel any chemistry between anyone. Perhaps he needs a sidekick.

It's a real shame that the show just isn't funny. I love MJF and will continue to watch just because I like seeing him up on screen again, but I don't think the show is going to be around for long unless something drastic happens.

I love Michael J. Fox and was very excited about this show, but for the most part I've been very disappointed about the show for the same reasons everyone has stated already. That being said, I've only seen the first two episodes and just haven't gotten to the newer episodes.
