Michael J. Fox's final episode contained numerous references to his earlier series, Family Ties (1982), including a cameo appearance by Michael Gross (who played Fox's father in the earlier series), the doctor he plays has a secretary named Mallory, which was Fox's sister's name on the show, a reference to a Republican senator named "Alex P. Keaton" (Fox's earlier character) and Meredith Baxter starred as his mother, who also was his mother in Family Ties (1982). See more »

Seasons 1-4 TV series brings a half hour of highly enjoyable escapism. Well loved characters. Michael J Fox is the glue for the whole show. It started with him and unfortunately the show died without him.
The strong ensemble cast gave the show depth and representation, from Carter to James you felt that the show had a commentary from a broad spectrum of characters, not particular deep as perhaps west wing, but that is not the intention. you become invested in the T&T of these characters, as with all good shows, they bring familiarity, social commentary at its light entertainment best.
This show like "friends " was a staple diet during my university years. Recently i have got my hands on the whole series of shows. It was a pleasure to revisit this comedy. Good luck to Mr Fox's foundation on Parkinson's research.
