Light television comedy about family man Tim Taylor. The show's humor often revolves around cars, toys, tools, hardware shops, garages, fix-it-up projects, and similar themes. Written by

The show was originally conceived under the name "Hammer Time", after the show Tim would host. Prior to filming the pilot, Tim's show was re-named "Tool Time" to avoid confusion with M.C. Hammer. Consequently, the show was re-named "Home Improvement" because the creators decided against naming the show after the show-within the show, to avoid confusing viewers. See more »
In one episode Wilson recalls Tim and Jill as newlyweds who had just moved in and were always fighting. However in another episode a flashback shows that they had just moved in when Randy was a baby, since Randy is the middle child they had to have been married a few years and therefore were not newlyweds.

Home Improvement has now become like "The Simpsons" in that you are always seeking that illusive "never-seen-this-one-before" episode. Unfortunately, unlike the Simpsons, Tim Allen and the rest of the gang have stopped making Home Improvement, but I believe it will live on among the classics of family sit-coms like The Cosby Show.
Jonathan Taylor Thomas is especially brilliant in the role of smart-mouthed Randy Taylor, a role that obviously launched his career.
Tim Allen proves his slap stick humour is as brilliant as his Buzz Lightyear character, and support from Patricia Richardson (as Jill Taylor), Earl Hindman (as the hidden Wilson Wilson) and Richard Karn (as "my assistant Al Borland") makes Home Improvement great fun!
Be sure to tune in for the "Salute to...." humour!
