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

This tv show ranks among my all-time favorites. After watching a couple Tim Allen comedy sketches, I saw where they got the basis of the show's humor and plot, and it was good. Allen shines as the accident-prone Tim the tool man Taylor, who wanted more power and offered advice on his cable tv show, but was a total klutz at home. His wife Jill, three kids, friend and co-host Al, and neighbor Wilson (whose face you never saw, and they came up with pretty creative ways to hide it) were around to put up with him.
Great TV entertainment!
