In my opinion this is the best show of it's genre to come along since Barney Miller (mid 1970's to mid 1980's). I have seen all past episodes and yet wouldn't hesitate to binge watch all 7 seasons on a rainy weekend!! The best cast of characters ever (even though a few key cast members were replaced with quality new cast members) I like to see movies and talk shows with any of these characters in them.

Tim Allen is Hilarious and I am so glad Fox picked the show back up this year. Hopefully it has many more great seasons. I read through the reviews and laugh at all the political cry babies. Years ago when Murphy Brown was on all she did was put down Bush and make fun of Dan Quayle. I am sure they didn't complain about her show. Her show is coming back also and I wouldn't be surprised if she didn't pick up right where she left off. Political humor can be hilarious about both parties. Unless it's just plain offensive I say, bring it on Tim. In this hateful climate we seem to be in we need all the laughs we can get. Trump gets blasted every night on the late night talk shows and they won't be stopping till he is out of office. Ha, then their writers are gonna have to actually write some funny jokes instead of just rewriting the evening news into sound bites.
