One of Season 8's Best!
12 November 2009 | by (Washington, United States) – See all my reviews

Tim Allen puts on a hilarious performance without hardly any supporting cast members in this episode! He shows just how comically talented he is and it's hilarious to see Tim try to write his book for Binford while home by himself for the weekend.

The main synopsis is that Jill and the kids leave for the weekend and while gone, Tim has to try to write a book for Binford Tools. He obviously gets distracted and has dreams during his sleep of his book being a best seller and getting to be on Jay Leno and Oprah Winfrey's talk shows because of it! Tim goes to Wilson for help and then gets the first few chapters of his book done by the end of the weekend.

Overall, I personally think that this episode is hilarious!! Tim is so puerile and immature and watching him try to stay home by himself for the weekend and write his book is hysterical. The way he gets distracted by such simple things is very funny and Tim Allen should be applauded for his solo performance. He's such a great solo performer that he makes this episode one of the best of Season 8 and even one of the highlights of the series!
