Not The Best Season Premiere, But Still Pretty Darn Great!
12 November 2009 | by (Washington, United States) – See all my reviews

Whitewater is a unique episode because it features Tim, Jill, Wilson, Al, and Heidi, all 5 adults in the series, together at the same time, something the show basically never did. It had some great humor and showed that the show absolutely was NOT dead entering the eighth and final season.

It's Tim's birthday and, against his will, Jill brings him, Al, Wilson, Heidi, and herself on a whitewater rafting trip to celebrate. Randy leaves to visit Lauren and while Tim and Jill are gone, Brad and Mark try to figure out how to take out a stain on the couch before their parents return.

Overall, this episode wasn't one of the show's best, and wasn't one of the show's best season premieres, but the thing it did show was that it still had TONS of hilarious humor in it entering the final season and that the show wasn't going to fade out in it's final stages. There's plenty of funny lines in this episode that will make you laugh, especially at the end when Tim and co. are in danger of drowning while rafting. Basically an average level episode, but, like all fans of Home Improvement know, an average episode of Home Improvement is still absolutely extraordinary, remarkable, and hilarious!
