Spin City - Season 2
Michael J. Fox returns as New York City's Deputy Mayor Mike Flaherty in Spin City Season 2 (1997-8). Still the slickest, smartest politico around, he manages the daily problems of the world’s greatest city with confidence and crossed fingers, while mitigating the mishaps of Mayor Randall Winston (Barry Bostwick). There is no shortage of characters at City Hall, and most of them work for Mike. Abetted by his trusty staff, (Richard Kind, Alan Ruck, Michael Boatman, Connie Britton, and Alexander Chaplin), Mike juggles the weight of the City’s biggest problems and the Mayor’s endless blunders with his own personal crisis. This season he’s got a little more help with his new hire, a hard-nosed secretary Stacey Paterno (Jennifer Esposito). Spin City was Michael J. Fox’s return to television, and this second season is further proof of the spot-on comedic timing and style of a great actor.
