The Real Thing

I enjoyed the TV show Family Ties but the episodes where Michael J. Fox’s character falls in love with his soon to be real life wife Tracy Pollen’s character was the show’s high point. Maybe it’s because we know the two actors actually fell in love with each other that adds something special to the shows. Also, they’re well-written, funny and touching. The song “At this moment” also added a great deal to the experience. I like the way Alex Keating (M.J. Fox) tries his best to convince himself that he doesn’t love this woman who’s nothing like the kind of girl he wanted to marry. Isn’t that the way love goes? So wonderful.

Here’s the moment when Alex confronts Ellen at the bus station
