The Michael J Fox Show is a 2013 series that features Mike Henry, a news reporter who retired when diagnosed with Parkinson's, then decides to come back to work. The series focuses on him, his wife, his three children and sister.
In the pilot, Mike's chair rolling him off camera might be a reference to the popular Family Ties clip of Alex P. Keaton rolling his chair across the room and tapping a textbook in triumph.
Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: When Michael goes on a weekend vacation with his wife, he meets a blind man who is this trope all over Michael. Annie initially thinks the guy is really sweet, but changes her tune when she sees him totally lay into Michael for ruining his shot earlier in the day. Everyone else just thinks he's Inspirationally Disabled, and he certainly plays upon this fact a bit.
The Cast Show Off: In the episode "Hobbies", that's really Michael J. Fox playing hockey. Fox once demonstrated on Oprah that he still has this ability, despite having Parkinson's. Michael also demonstrates that he can at least putt straight in the weekend getaway episode.
Kick the Dog: Well, punch the cat, actually. Getting filmed doing it on live tv spells the end of Zack's career.
Mistaken for Gay: Eve assumes her friend, Reese, is a lesbian because she kissed a girl once at a party. She goes a little over the top to play up all the lesbian stereotypes. At the end of the episode, Reese admits the same of Eve.
Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Subverted. In the "Secret" episode, Ian, Eve, and Graham argue over what to do w/ an owl statue given to Graham that might contain something valuable. Ian wants to break it to find the possible treasure. Graham runs off with the statue and his siblings pursue him. Graham tosses the owl in the air, but Ian in slow, dramatic fashion, catches it. But then he says, "Wait. I wanted it to break."
Reality Subtext: The pilot episode is this. Mike Henry returning to news reporting, mirrors Michael J. Fox's return to regular acting.
Siblings in Crime: Eve and Ian are usually at odds, but when their parents go away for the weekend, they join forces to rent out the apartment in order to make a little money.
Technology Marches On: In the pilot, Harris attempts to lure Mike back to his job by showing office chairs now have wheel locks.
Wacky Guy: When Aunt Leigh drops by, you know something crazy's going to happen.
