Yes, Yes, Amazing Episode!

This episode of Home Improvement has Tim, Jill, Al, and Ilene planing on going to a showing of the play "No, No, Godot". One tiny complication though is that Tim has hockey tickets for that night as well. Tim and Al try to sell the tickets right before they meet Jill and Ilene at the play, but a police officer catches them and arrests them for scalping tickets. Tim and Al go to jail while Jill and Ilene wonder why Tim and Al aren't at the play. Jill expects that Tim went to the hockey game, but Ilene is very shocked and worried that Al went with Tim, which is of course something you wouldn't expect of Al. In the side plot, Wilson looks over the kids while Tim and Jill are gone and he tries to make sure that Randy and Brad don't go to a party that they wanted to go to. Tim calls home from jail, informs Wilson about his and Al's situation, then an usher at the play is informed through Wilson via phone, and tells Jill and Ilene about Tim and Al's being in the slammer. Jill and Ilene bail Tim and Al out, and that's the end.

Of course, the endless humor that is throughout the episode while Tim and Al are in jail is unparalleled. Characters going to jail has always been a tried-and-true plot in sitcoms, but once again, Home Improvement's jail episode FAR surpasses any other jail episode in any other show. Not to mention that Wilson baby-sitting the kids is TREMENDOUSLY funny and Jill is A LOT funnier than usual while her and Ilene are waiting for Tim and Al!

Overall, this is one of the show's best episodes for sure, and it takes an established plot line and turns it into a simply beyond-belief-of-how-extraordinary-it-is episode! But, what else would you expect from Home Improvement? Nothing but the absolute BEST that television will EVER OFFER!!! 10/10!
