Title: Spin City
Series: 6
Episodes: 145
First Transmission: 1996

Spin City is a smart, sophisticated sitcom about the behind-the-scenes workings of City Hall in the biggest city in America. Workaholic Mike Flaherty is the Deputy Mayor of New York City, serving as Mayor Randall Winston’s key strategist and much-needed handler. Mike runs the city with the help of his oddball staff: an anxious and insecure press secretary; a sexist, boorish chief of staff; an impeccably groomed gay activist running minority affairs; a sharp and efficient, man-crazy accountant; and an idealistic young speechwriter. Like Mike, they are all professionally capable but personally challenged.

Best Episode

Goodbye: Part 2 (2000) – When Sheridan goes public about the Winston administration’s links to organized crime, Mike decides to take the fall and save everyone else. He submits his resignation, leading everyone to drown their sorrows and say their goodbyes.

Worst Episode

Hey Judith (2001) – Much to Charlie’s disdain, Mayor Winston’s new girlfriend Judith usurps Charlie’s authority by involving herself in policy issues at City Hall. Carter and Stuart brawl during a hockey game.
