Parkinson´s is a terrible disease. I´v seen the effects up close.
But even, or maybe especially, terrible things and diseases need comic relief. Today I watched the first episode of Michael J. Fox show, and I agree with a the critics when they call it “more likable than funny”. But I love the fact that Michael J. Fox can in a endearing way make us laugh at the things that must be so frustrating. I love that he can see the funny side to an awful situation.
I grew up with his films, and I thrilled to see him back! Now more as a role model than a comedian, and that’s OK with me!
Love it or leave it, but I´m a sucker for people who overcome difficulties and live to tell tale…
Or the way the man himself puts it; “If life gives you hammers, build something”
