Trivia

Stephen Tobolowsky was the original choice to play Al Borland; but due to a commitment to a film that Tobolowsky was acting in, Richard Karn got the part of Al after filming four episodes. See more »

Goofs

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.

Randy: ...bottom number...
Tim: ...why don't they just call it the bottom number? The denominator... that sounds like a Schwarzenegger movie doesn't it?

Truly Entertaining And Extremely Funny
15 July 2000 | by (Leicestershire, England) – See all my reviews

Tim Allen is just the best as the tool man and the rest of the cast as well provides continuous jokes and mishaps throughout every show that make it possible to watch each show more than once.

Besides just being entertaining the show deals with some important issues specifically about the differences of both male and female and their weaknesses as well as strengths.

This show is one of my two favourite shows of all time. American sitcoms can't get much better than this.
