I laughed my head off. I mean, the show had my laughing already. A crazy aunt? Check. A pretentious wannabe Mark Zuckerberg son? Check. A youngest who embraces the "honey badger don't care" attitude? Check. An intelligent daughter who has no qualms about exploiting her father's illness to get an easy grade? Check.
Seriously, what's not to love? Through it all, Michael J. Fox finds a way to present Parkinson's without the Sarah Mclachlan music and slow motion. He presents it how it is: a real life illness that you learn to live with through your own attitude and the support of your family. The best part is that The Michael J. Fox Show ultimately isn't even about that. It's about how a man--how everyone--is defined by the sum of their parts, not their most distinguishable one.
A great example is in the second episode of the back-to-back premiere. Eve, the overly politically correct daughter--is on a mission to befriend The Lesbian Girl at her school. Why? Because Eve is known for having a diverse group of friends who don't judge. When she discovers that her friend straight (by catching her making out with Eve's brother), Eve is disappointed that her friend would deceive her like that (she didn't, by the way. Eve just assumed) and storms off. It requires the brother in question to remind Eve that people are unique and interesting in their own right, not because of the labels given to them.
It's my favorite part of the show. This theme is addressed again and again in the two premiere episodes, and it never feels trite or cliched. Mike Henry develops a crush on a sexy neighbor because she makes him feel attractive and more than the Parkinson's news anchor. Crazy aunt Leigh pretends to have a son because she feels everyone stops listening to her the second they hear the word "single."
