Storyline

The colleagues praise Niki for her latest date Tony DiMarco, finally a classy man. Scandal reporter Wayne Sheridan taunts Mike with a scandal exposing the mayor as mob-broiled. Indeed, Tony got a sanitation contract during a hunting trip, but it's too late to put straight, so Mike, whose regular therapist handed over to father-figure Dr. Petersen, needs to choose a fall guy.

Mayor's administration is facing a brewing scandal.
13 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this first part of a two part episode series, Mike is visiting a health counselor to deal with problems that he is having in life. From the last episode we learned that Mike and Caitlin have now become a couple but the relationship is lacking in physical contact. Plus the Mayor may be in some trouble when a local reporter comes across the fact that a known mobster is getting gifts and contracts from the city. Mike is in need of advise from the counselor.

The problem with Mike's relationship involves the fact that Caitlin is waiting for the right moment. It seems that she only gets the hots when they are talking about city business. Mike is at wits end on what to do. The other story involves Nikki's new boyfriend named Tony DiMarco. Everyone at the office loves Tony and he receives some benefits from the friendship. Also when a new waste contract is awarded, it just so happens that Tony's business gets awarded the contract by the Mayor. Now an investigating reporter gives the evidence of Tony's connections to Mayor's office. The Mayor is in hot water thus all the staff is in hot water.

With Michael J Fox approaching the end of his participation in the series, it is nice to see an episode that will give the result of his departure. And with the end coming quickly, the writers had some fun as the counselor is Michael Gross, the man who played Michael J Fox's father in the episode 'Family Ties'. Mr Gross does a very nice job in the role but it seemed that they lingered with a running joke that lost humor after the first four mentions, which did not improve the show.

As this series is a comedy sitcom, the show was more sadden that comical. There were a few good parts but the show took a cloudy turn as Mike has to pick a person to fall on the sword and save the Mayor's administration. We await the next episode to see how hard the hammer is going to fall to rid the administration of a possible criminal investigation.
