I fear this show is going to be as unsettling as watching Dick Clark on the last few New Years Eves before he "retired".

From what I saw in previews his new show is very self-aware and they're pulling no punches with the material.  If Mike is down with going for the jugular then I hope it does very well.

I get my ex with this one all the time, she is so in love with Micheal J Fox...

*ahem*

Micheal J Fox walks into an ice cream shoppe. He tells the worker to get him a double scoop cone. The worker looks up and says, "Sure, what flavors?" Michael looks at him and says, "I'd like a double scoop ice cream cone please." The worker. says, "Right, I still need to know what flavors..." Michael, now getting agitated says, "Please can I just have some ice-cream?" And the clerk, now also frustrated says, "Sir, I don't know what flavors to give you unless you tell me." Michael J Fox throws is hands up in the air and shouts,. "IT DOESN'T MATTER I'M JUST GOING TO DROP IT ANYWAY!"

^This.  He's making fun of himself, not doing a sappy comeback show.  If it works, it should be really good.

If Parkinson's Disease makes you a better actor, you were complete shiat to start with.

I rolled my eyes at the low hanging fruit that is this headline, but lol'd pretty hard at this so it balanced out.
 
2013-09-18 03:26:22 PM
Is his show going to be like those youtube videos where the box keeps moving around to stabilize the image?
 
2013-09-18 03:42:06 PM
I find his claim a little shaky.

Destabilizing, if you will.

In all fairness, he was never a great actor to start with.  Amusing to watch, of course.  He's a likeable guy.  But he was basically Michael J Fox in everything he's ever been in.

Normally I'd join in with the fun - but it's a little too close to home now so I'll bow out...

If MJF were reading this thread right now, he would really be shaking his head.

Not because he's offended of course.

One good thing about parkensons, every time you take a piss, you end up beating off.

Crying from laughing and sadness is a pretty neat feeling.

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: I find his claim a little shaky.


Personally I think his acting chops have definitely gone up a few ticks in recent years.

I also know someone with Parkinsons. He doesn't shake at all but has trouble walking - he shuffles more than walks.

The thing most people don't know about parkinsons is that it isn't just a muscular issue. That is, not everyone has degeneration of motor skills to the point of paralysis.  The disease has multiple subtypes, whereby some folks have mental degeneration similar to Altzheimers, and some have purely physical symptoms.

The so-called Louie-body dementia, which is caused by Parkinsons-related cell degeneration in the brain, is a huge thing.

With my father, he's somewhere in between the two types. He's fairly physically incapacitated due to it, but also he's mentally failing as well due to the louie-body dementia. Coupling this with medications and their side effects, it causes severe depression, extreme fatigue, and hallucinations.  If you want a definition of hell, being forced to endure a body that cannot react and move as you command while your mind slowly loses the ability to remember and suffers severe hallucinations, with no way to really prevent either...that'd be close to mine.
