Harrison Ford has viewers convinced he’s ‘not acting’ in ‘best show on television’

Fans are amazed by his performance in Apple TV show

Harrison Ford has been regarded by many, as one of the greatest actors of our time – especially after his latest performance in new Apple TV show.

Harrison Ford is so persuasive in his latest role that he has fans debating ‘whether or not he’s actually acting.’

Harrison has won plenty of accolades for his commitment to acting, like the honour of a AFI Lifetime Achievement Award, a Golden Globe and a People’s Choice Award.

‘Shrinking’ is a comedy-drama also starring Jason Segel, where Segal plays a grieving therapist who’s eager to be more involved in his patient’s life. All the while, Ford plays his senior psychologist co-star who suffers from Parkinson’s disease.

The synopsis reads: "Jimmy Laird, a therapist grieving his wife Tia's death from a car accident, has grown weary of his patients' inability to solve their own problems. He begins intervening in their lives to help them expedite the changes they desire."

Season one has been given a rating of 91% by the usually scathing Rotten Tomatoes, with an audience score of 81%.

Not too shabby, eh?

The Guardian recently reviewed the series, going with the headline: “Finally, Harrison Ford proves he can do TV comedy.”

Even among a star-studded cast, viewers seem compelled by Ford’s acting ability to the point where they’re wondering if he’s driving an amazing performance or whether this is ‘just him.’

One fan took to X/twitter to share their thoughts, saying: “Harrison Ford is a great actor. ...but he's totally not acting in 'Shrinking' Hilarious.”

Another user posted: “Shrinking is really good, but Harrison Ford is fantastic. I’m not even sure he’s acting, I feel like that might just be him.

Someone else agreed saying: “Yes Last of Us is great and all but Shrinking is the best show on television right now. Shrinking is the best show on television right now…IMO”

NPR said of Harrison's performance in Shrinking: “The biggest headline about Shrinking has probably been the involvement of Harrison Ford, who gives the funniest performance I've seen from him ... maybe ever? Maybe since Working Girl? Not the dry, sprinkled wit — however devastatingly dashing it is — of Indiana Jones or Han Solo, but what feels like a whole new comic gear."

Harrison Ford became a household name in the 70’s after playing Hans Solo in the hugely popular Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope – which was released in 1977.

Four years later, Ford was cast in another life-changing role which sent him on a stratosphere to fame, as he secured the role in Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark, a blockbuster smash which grossed $212 million.
