Product Description

Plug in the power drill and break out the socket wrenches! Tim Allen hammers home the laughs as Tim "The Toolman" Taylor in HOME IMPROVEMENT'S hilarious second season. Tim and his levelheaded wife, Jill, undertake the challenge of raising three young, mischievous boys. It's a tough project, but with insightful advice from his wise (and only partially seen) next door neighbor, Wilson, they're able to get the job done. Now you can own all 25 episodes of the show's second season in this comprehensive 3-Disc DVD set. And with exclusive bonus features, it's a must-have for any HOME IMPROVEMENT collection.


Someday someone's going to write an academic thesis titled, "The Guy Behind the Fence: Home Improvement and Tim Allen's Deconstruction of Manliness." You wouldn't think masculinity was a rich enough topic to provide fodder for 25 episodes of a sitcom--let alone eight years of one--yet in almost every episode Wilson (Earl Hindman), the never-fully-seen neighbor of TV host Tim Taylor (Allen), spins out some new bit of earthy wisdom (fondly parodying the homilies of Iron John author Robert Bly), which gives Tim some skewed perspective on his latest domestic muddle.

The second season of Home Improvement had a few recurring plotlines (Tim's show, Tool Time, gets a female producer, played by a pre-News Radio Vicki Lewis), but most episodes follow the classic sitcom format of introducing a problem and resolving it in twenty minutes, with plenty of punchlines along the way. Tim's wife Jill (Patricia Richardson) gets annoyed because Tim can't keep from glancing at other women (in this case, future Tool Time babe Debbe Dunning); Tim wants his youngest son Mark (Taran Noah Smith) to take karate classes because other boys keep pushing Mark around; when Jill gets a job at a women's magazine, she creates a spouse-compatibility quiz that inspires Tim to create a quiz of his own. The competitive urge--be it with his long-suffering assistant Al (Richard Karn) or over neighborhood Christmas lights--constantly gets Tim into trouble, culminating in a riding lawn mower race with real-life home improvement guru Bob Vila. Like most sitcoms, Home Improvement offers comfort food comedy; despite minor conflicts, the Taylors' family life is dependably functional and warm. Fortunately, Allen's humor has just enough sting to keep from sinking into treacly sentimentality. The cast also includes Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Zachery Ty Bryan as Tim's older sons and Pamela Anderson, who left after this season to become an international sex symbol on Baywatch. --Bret Fetzer

I have loved "Home Improvement" ever since I was seven years old,and I think that everyone was excited to see the first four seasons of HI being released on DVD. Truth be told,while shows like "Home Improvement" really do not get made that much anymore,HI is a good reminder of what good television was about back in the early 90's (which was when this show aired)--and this DVD set is surely to bring back good memories,laughter,and entertainment for all fans of "Home Improvement" who purchased this set.

What you have right here is the second season for "Home Improvement"--every second of every episode from the second season of HI,on a three disc set. And while the first season of "Home Improvement" may be the ultimate season of the show,the season of the show that is displayed here is both funny and strong in several ways. This DVD set shows all of the challenges that Tim Taylor (Tim Allen)and his wife Jill (Patricia Richardson)faced as parents,with their oldest children Brad (Zachary Ty Bryan) and Randy (Jonathan Taylor Thomas)going through puberty,while their youngest son Mark (Tarah Noah Smith),who,while he may not being going through puberty,happens to be a target of both Brad and Randy (which follows hillarious results that are displayed in pretty much every episode that is here).

Nominated for 9 Golden Globes and 34 Emmys, including 2 for Outstanding Comedy Series, Home Improvement was the number one family-friendly comedy for most of the 1990's decade. Created by three writers who worked on wide range of sitcoms, such as The Cosby Show (1984) and Roseanne (1988), Home Improvement is one of a number of 1990's smash hit sitcoms built around a lead character who stars as a stand-up comic in real life. Some of the other series include Seinfeld (1990), The Drew Carey Show (1995), Everybody Loves Raymond (1996), and King Of Queens (1998) among others. One of the trailblazers in this area, Home Improvement ranked in the Top 10 among Nielsen-rated shows for seven of its eight seasons (it ranked #11 in Season 7). One notable tidbit of trivia is that Sears was approached to sponsor the show which would've put Craftsman tools in the hands of Tim "The Toolman" Taylor (as opposed to the fictional "Binford" brand), but Sears rejected the offer because they feared Tim Allen's prior conviction on a drug charge might be interpreted as unfriendly to families (funny, since Home Improvement later fell under the moniker of the Walt Disney Company)...

Home Improvement centers around the life of Tim Taylor (Tim Allen), a home improvement expert who hosts his own local TV show "Tool Time" on cable access. Tim and his wife Jill (Patricia Richardson) live in a house in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan with their three boys Brad (Zachery Ty Bryan), Randy (Jonathan Taylor Thomas), and Mark (Taran Noah Smith). On "Tool Time," Tim is flanked by the flannel-clad, easy-going Al Borland (Richard Karn) who is often the butt of Tim's jokes and harbors a neurotic tendency toward perfectionism.

As a huge fan of the program since it began in 1991, this is the ultimate in entertainment and fun. Without going into detail about each episode as others have done so well, it's the "how to and how not to" of lessons in being a family, as so many episodes mimic real life family situations. From the wisdom and counsel of Wilson Wilson Jr. given Tim from across the fence, to the everyday problems encountered by most families and couples in a relationship, to Tim's inclination, with all good intentions, to royally mess things up, to Tim and Al hijinks, to the often hilarious outtakes at the end of each show, this a fun way to spend time in front of the tube. My hope is all eight seasons will be available soon, as I plan to spend a part of my retirement with these most enjoyable offerings. Here's hoping those of you who buy these enjoy them as much as I do. Oh, do I ever tire of watching these over and over? I don't think so Tim. MORE POWER !!!

When it comes to shows like "Home Improvement" that are aired in syndication seemingly a dozen times a day in any given market (when you account for cable and local station airings), it becomes very important for the DVD presentation to provide something extra.

Thankfully, this set provides the most important thing first: UNCUT episodes. As most fans by now know, most if not all shows are edited down when put into syndication. Usually, a couple of minutes are trimmed. This, as well as the first and presumably all seasons sets of "Home Improvement" feature unedited shows as they originally aired. This is important, because over the course of a season's worth of episodes, about two episode's worth of running time is cut when two minutes are clipped from each episode.

Visually, this set looks as good as it possibly could. Early 90's videotape. It sounds just fine as well.

There really aren't any extras on this set. The "First Season" set had three commentary tracks. This set has none.

The "Loose Screws" montage is, as with the first season set, not really an extra, as it simply slices up little bits of footage from the actual episodes.

Apart from the almost complete lack of extras, this set is perfect.
