Meeee, I saw it and loved it.
Like you, I have always loved MJF. He still looks young, doesn't he?
I don't think the jokes were inappropriate. I like the part, where he was putting food on his wifes plate ( or tried to) and his wife said, " no time for personal victories, we are hungry".
Do you mind if I ask you, how bad your Parkinsons is?
You are right, about having roll models on tv, with chronic illnesses. Hopefully it will open some peoples eyes and they lern how to be a little more compassionate.
I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
