From Scott Stinson of the National Post:

Family Ties’ Michael Gross is the perfect foil for Call Me Fitz

Call Me Fitz faces fatherhood


From Scott Stinson of the National Post:

Every new piece of the Fitzpatrick past that Larry uncovers sheds more light on the family’s twisted history, while fueling the dysfunctional fire between them and, in the end, unearthing a nemesis hell-bent on eradicating the Fitzpatricks and their way of life.
