This is simply the best sitcom ever. It is wholesome without being corny (I'm looking at you, Full House). Funny without being inappropriate for kids. I watch this every Friday night with my kids and they love it. Nothing compares.

Tim allen was then and is now the typical open mouth insert foot husband. He was hilarious both as a not so know it all tool man, and as the hapless family man. I recommend to all. This show really was the last of its kind. Dont make family comedies like this anymore.
