Bud talks Tim into buying his Piston's season tickets, which cost $4000. When he gets home and talks with his sons about his purchase they're excited at first; until they find out he didn't discuss ...
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

Originally, actress Frances Fisher was cast as Jill Taylor. During the filming of the pilot, audiences reacted poorly, saying that she made the character of Jill whiney and desperate. She was replaced with Patricia Richardson four days before the pilot episode was taped. See more »

I don't think so, Tim.

Most episodes featured outtakes from either Tool Time or the show itself as a backdrop to the closing credits. See more »
Now here's a man show where we can say the words: More Power! "Home Improvement" is a family show and an expertise show on tools where the main character Tim Taylor (Tim Allen) runs his show called 'Tool Time' with his assistant Al Borland (Richard Karn), for which he is more of an expert than Tim.
Tim's family life is very insane and yet fun to watch. His wife Jill (Patricia Richardson) is the type of wife that gets jealous of what Tim does or yet, cannot stay out of people's affairs; his three sons Brad (Zachary Bryan) is a trouble maker, Randy (Jonathan Taylor Thomas) is a smart-ass and Mark (Taran Smith) is the innocent that gets picked on by the older sons. He also has a neighbor named Wilson (Earl Hindman) who only shows half of his face in every episode for which he is always there for Tim and his family when they are in trouble.
Like "Boy Meets World," I admire this family show until during later seasons, most of the characters got annoying; Jill decides to go back to school, Randy became a pompous know-it-all, Mark had issues and Brad was just himself throughout the show. The real reason I watched this show was because of Tim Allen's comic genius and just seeing how much disaster he would cause.
