Michael J. Fox,
While the pilot was in development, Mike's original surname was Burnaby, named for the Vancouver suburb where Michael J. Fox spent most of his childhood. Upon NBC picking this up, it was changed to Henry. See more »
Comedy is hard. Every fall lots of new shows that are trying to be funny shows up, most of them with good actors, some with good ideas but very few with good material and writers. Most of the time they don't even last a full season. Either the jokes are cheap, the people unreal or there is some other serious flaw. This show seems to be an exception, I say seems to be since there have only been three episodes so far. I admit, I love Michael J Fox, and I was excited that he was back to TV, but it seems like he is working with good writers and good stories and characters that seems real. Like he almost always does. So I can recommend this show, if you saw and liked Spin City and Family ties, you will like this show too.
