Goofs

The picture of Tim and Alex on his traffic ticket is not consistent with what happened on the scene earlier. When driving Tim slams on the brakes which suggests that he did not pass the red light so he would not have been caught by the camera. Also, in the picture Alex is looking at Tim, this doesn't happen until several seconds after they stop so it is unlikely that the camera would take a picture of this. See more »

Hands Off the Headlights.

It's rope-a-dope day on Fool Time as Tim and Al talk about the last manly sport: the rodeo. To start, they've invited a champion roper to show a few tricks of the trade. He may be a kid, but he can swing a lasso like nobody's business. Very impressive. But of course, Tim can't stand having somebody else be better at something than him, so he says he's a fair meddler with a rope himself, or rather, his roping double is. Impressive...not! I hate this show (Tool Time, not Home Improvement). At home, it's Tim and Jill's anniversary. You know the drill. Tim's gonna forget, right? Actually, no. That's one I like about this show, they don't go for the old "husband forgets anniversary" cliché. So while Jill decides where they should go for dinner, preferably not Sarrentino's because that jerkoff Antonio always insults them, so they wanna make darn sure they don't bump into him, Tim locates a shop that can repair Brad's new Mustang, and he's sure in for a surprise when he meets the mechanic: it's a woman! Alex, Mustang specialist, and she's just as much into muscle cars as Tim. She's also a Tool Time fan. They take a ride in the Mustang so Tim can show Alex first hand what's wrong with it, and they do some more talking. It turns out something else they have in common: they both grew up with 4 brothers. Will wonders never cease? Unfortunately, Tim doesn't watch where they're going and they almost run a red light. Tim slams on the brakes and juts his hand out to protect Alex. If someone were to see that and take it out of context, it would look mighty fishy. But don't worry, I doubt that will happen.

Next day, it's the big anniversary! Celebrating 500 years of marriage. Brad and Mark give Jill flowers, and Tim, well, he's still down at the garage with Alex. He's been spending a lot of time there lately. Tim spending time at an auto garage is nothing out of the ordinary. Anyway, Jill checks the mail and finds a letter from the police department. Knowing it's a ticket, she's quick to blame Brad, but then...well, is this ever a Kodak moment: remember earlier in the episode they were talking about cameras at the intersections to catch people running red lights? They photograph not only the license plate, but the driver as well? You also remember Tim and Alex nearly running the light? Photographed for Jill's viewing pleasure is a black and white snapshot of Tim with his hand on another woman's chest. She springs it on Tim at their anniversary dinner that night, and he's more bothered by the fact he got a ticket than where his hand was...oh, and guess what? Antonio is their waiter. He's like the Home Improvement version of Grover. Every time Fat Blue goes to a different restaurant, Grover just happens to be the waiter there. Needless to say, Grover is much more polite, as well as more likable than this slimeball. Anyway, Jill wonders if there's something going on between Tim and Alex, which he's quick to deny. But then they exchange gifts, Jill calms down and it looks like their anniversary isn't ruined after all. Suddenly, Tim gets a call. It's Alex. Oh dear. Then Jill bails... sensitive, much? They have a shouting match when they get home. Jill insults him and says her feelings were hurt. Hmm... Alex Taylor...sounds kinda nice. But now, it's on to talking with Wilson, where Tim admits he is attracted to her. So, in order to keep from jeopardizing his marriage, he decides to find another mechanic. He lets Alex down easily, and then he and Jill make amends.

This one was pretty good. It felt like an episode from the early seasons. Except the jokes weren't very funny, but the sentiment was there. I'd also like to go on record to say that Antonio the waiter is excruciatingly annoying and I can't for the life of me understand why they kept bringing that character back, and secondly, while Tim should have been more honest with Jill about Alex, she took things a little too far in how she treated him on their anniversary. As for the intersection cameras, those are still around today, but I think they've been phased out in most cities. But I don't think they photograph the driver, that was probably just a plot device, though I could be wrong. So, in closing, I do recommend Young at Heart, it's got a good story and interesting concept.
