There are a lot of good Christmas episodes of television I could write about right now. The Office has done a bunch of them. I remember a really good The Mary Tyler Moore Show episode about the holiday. Oh, the excellent episodes of TV I could talk about right now. Instead, I’m going to write about an episode of Home Improvement I saw part of recently. You can’t stop me. It’s the holidays, and this is my Christmas wish.
I’ve been watching chunks of Home Improvement episodes a lot recently. They show it on the Laff Channel all the time, and when I am watching network TV I will flip over to it during commercials or during halftime of various football games. I watched this show as a kid, and it always stuck out to me because I grew up in Detroit, and that’s where the show is set. Of course, now I realize Tim Allen is a problematic personality, but that doesn’t mean I can’t watch The Tool Man do his thing.
Is Home Improvement good? I can’t say that, but it’s better than you might think. That assumes you think it’s bad. I would say it’s mediocre to decent. There are jokes that genuinely make me laugh every once in a while. Allen does seem like he understands how to wring the most out of his Tool Man persona. In short, it’s a fine show to flip over to.
