For those of us who have watched the show for years, it's probably hard to understand why anyone would fall madly in love with Michael. I had a hard time swallowing the law partnership between he and Cricket. The man was a nutcase, spent time in prison for what was it, stalking or something. Not sure what it's called when you cut a hole through the wall to get into someone's apartment, and all the other madness that went along with that chain of events. And now he's such an upstanding family man? I doubt it. I really like the guy who plays Michael, but feel that the character, Michael, has a long way to go to be the moral and upstanding individual that is portrayed. I'm waiting for him to pull out the sleaze here.
