Tune in Tomorrow Night at 8/7c on ABC for New Episodes of Last Man Standing, Starring Tim Allen (Review)

"Our premiere airs the Friday prior to Election Day, and in that spirit the producers have our characters engage in the same spirited debate taking place at kitchen tables across the country: Obama or Romney? Like the great family comedies of the past, from “All in the Family” to “Roseanne,” the show aims to be topical, relatable and real, as humorous as it is provocative. In another episode entitled “Circle of Life,” avid hunter Mike (Tim Allen) gives his grandson Boyd an eye-opening education about where his food really comes from. Will this information result in a rejection of eating meat, as Boyd’s vegetarian father (Jordan Masterson) hopes? Or will Mike manage to remake his grandson in his own unabashedly meat-loving image? These are the fertile grounds for comedy and discussion about child rearing that the show is now mining, and as executive producer Tim Doyle explains, “the show has adopted an attitude that dealing with serious, real life issues can result in a smarter, more relatable sitcom.  It's a family show in the truest sense -- a show about a recognizable American family.”"

My Thoughts:

I was excited to receive a sneak peek at the upcoming Last Man Standing season 2 the other day.  But, then the power went out, and I had to wait until tonight to watch the DVDs.  Even though the new season premieres tomorrow, I couldn't wait to tune in.  So, after the girls went to bed, I popped a bag of popcorn, grabbed a cozy blanket and kicked back on the couch to watch my screener copies.

I was turned onto this Tim Allen show mid-season last year, when a friend couldn't stop talking about this great show.  I hadn't even heard about it, but decided to tune in and see what I was missing out on.  Spending years watching Tim Allen on Home Improvement, I tried to see him in another television role.  Like his role on Home Improvement, he plays a dad on this, but this time he has 3 daughters instead of 3 sons.  Tim Allen doesn't disappoint with his comedic flair and really makes the show a joy to watch.  I missed him when his other show went off the air, and am so happy to see him back on television, and shining in this comedic role.  I can't wait for the second season to begin, can you?

Make sure you set your DVR's or tune in tomorrow night on ABC to see Last Man Standing at 8/7c.  If this is your first time watching this family sitcom, you will not disappointed.

Disclosure: I was sent screeners of two episodes from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
