      Season 5 – Spin City

      2000 Comedy List
      60% 5 Reviews Tomatometer New York Mayor Randall Winston needs help running the city. So, for much of the series, he counts on Deputy Mayor Mike Flaherty to help him. Flaherty, usually a man who is calm and organized, can "spin" out of control when it comes to his personal life, the ditzy mayor, and his abnormal co-workers. For the show's final two seasons, Flaherty is replaced as deputy mayor by Charlie Crawford after Michael J. Fox, who played Flaherty, was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and left the show.

      Previous Brandy McDonnell The Oklahoman Even viewers who don't clearly recall the later years of the Big Apple office comedy will develop a sense that they've been there and done this - or at least that Sheen has Sep 14, 2018 Full Review Christel Loar PopMatters With both Locklear and Sheen basically playing characters they've played before (he's the slick charmer with a bad boy past, she's the cold, uptight, control-freak), it seems a little sluggish. 5/10 Sep 14, 2018 Full Review Barbara Vancheri Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Sheen, it turns out, is up to the task. He slides easily into the ensemble, especially in his scenes with Heather Locklear as Caitlin Sep 14, 2018 Full Review David Zurawik Baltimore Sun Bad-boy Charlie Sheen replaces good-boy Michael J. Fox, and the series looks like it could be better. Sep 14, 2018 Full Review Mike Lipton People Magazine Sheen's deadpan cool is the refreshing flip side to Fox's hyperkinetic heat, and his edgy chemistry with Heather Locklear has potential.
