Tim Allen Presents: THE USER'S GUIDE TO HOME IMPROVEMENT -- Tim Allen And Richard Karn Host A Live Reunion Special With New Stand-Up Material By Allen

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

UPC:786936740738
DESCRIPTION: Home Improvement is a sitcom about Tim Taylor (Tim Allen), the accident prone host of a television program about tools - Tool Time. Tim raises three mischievous boys (Brad, Randy, and Mark) with his wife, Jill. Wilson is the Taylor s partially-seen neighbor who gives insightful advice to help the family. Al Borland is Tim's responsible, caring and flannel-wearing co-host on Tool Time. END

In its eighth and final season, classic sitcom Home Improvement holds up pretty well. Sure, plenty of recurring bits have gone stale--one imagines that star Tim Allen is looking forward to the day when he'll never have to grunt again, and hiding the face of neighbor Wilson (Earl Hindman) seems more like an obligatory chore than an entertaining game--but when the show focuses on the sitcom bedrock of marriage and family, it's not only still funny but sometimes even moving. The centerpiece of the whole season is a two-part episode that starts with an abundance of jokes about Tim's discomfort with female biology--then takes a jolting turn with the revelation that Jill (Patricia Richardson) has to get a hysterectomy. What follows is both comic and refreshingly honest as it captures Jill's anger and frustration, as well as a quietly touching portrait of how spouses support each other in times of trouble. Polly Holiday (Flo on Alice) boosts this episode with a strong appearance as Jill's mother.

The rest of the season goes up and down, suffering from some pointless celebrity appearances (Morgan Fairchild, Jay Leno, Oprah Winfrey, magicians Penn & Teller) and stunt-casting (Playboy playmate Jenny McCarthy as a mechanic Tim flirts with), and the departure of Jonathan Taylor Thomas (whose teen heartthrob career never quite launched) throws off the long-established family dynamic. But even otherwise rote episodes have satisfyingly funny moments (in a Halloween episode, there's a nice bit of slapstick when Tim, dressed as a flying monkey from The Wizard of Oz, can't get his wings through a doorway). The comfortable interplay among the seasoned cast ensures that longtime fans will find much to enjoy. The extras include some brief interviews, a blooper reel, and a retrospective special. --Bret Fetzer

One of the greatest family shows ever on TV.
Billy Montgomery
Loved the show growing up and now I can watch them whenever I want to see Tim be a fool.

Everyone can relate to something in the show and laugh.

Some of the more poignant, timely topics were covered in this season. I missed Randy, but otherwise it was so enjoyable. Bittersweet to see it all end. As any afficianado knows, it wasn't about the acting. The strength of the show was in the multitude of interactions that let us laugh at ourselves - or the people in our lives the characters reminded us of! I'll be watching these episodes for years to come.

We witnessed an end of an era with the conclusion of Home Improvement. How sad it is to see the family so poorly celebrated in our present-day sitcoms! Thank you, HI, for reminding us that we're not alone in our familial tribulations, and our desire to destroy things with power tools is not entirely a certifiable offense! I too will be watching these DVDs many years into the future, waiting for that much-anticipated HI reunion in Paris!

All I can say is well done; Buena Vista Home Entertainment. They really did justice to this series; by adding extras to the DVD sets and this volume is no different. It has blooper reels; and also includes the "Backstage Pass" episode that ran right after the series finale on ABC. I remember this because it showed Wilson's (Earl Hindman) entire face in the cast introductions after the series finale ended. During the series run in the cast intro's in front of the studio audience; Wilson would come out holding a small prop of a fence on the lower part of his face and as everyone knows this was a running gag throughout the series.

It also includes the 2003 special; "Tim Allen Presents: A Users Guide to Home Improvement". I think I saw this on PBS a few years ago. It Has Tim, Al, Heidi and Rock (Casey Sander) in front of a live studio audience. Earl Hindman (Wilson) narrates the show; but is not seen except in film footage played throughout the show. It's live action and footage of funny moments throughout the series. But it's nice that they included it in this DVD set.

So if you are looking for family oriented entertainment and have not bought this yet; go ahead and do so; it's a great set and a nice way to end this wonderful series. I wish there were more shows on TV just like this one.

I've watched the season finale twice today. It's hard to believe that it's been nearly nine years since this show ended. I raised my kids on Home Improvement. It was a great family time show--not like the crap that airs on free t.v. today. There were family values, lots of laughter, and healthy relationships. It was about building bonds, building strong character, and laughter--lots of laughter. In season 8, what made Home Improvement so special doesn't always come across but there are several great episodes in this season, the finale being one of them.

This was a Very Funny Series. Yes there were some episodes not so funny and some were sidesplitting. To complain about the acting on a DVD release is silly. You buy the series releases because you liked the program. Not as an Emmy judge.

The only thing I didn't like about this is simply that it's the last of the series. Home Improvement is one of my all-time favorites. The 8th Season ends on the same high note as this series started. Great actors, great scripts, hilarious situations. Video and audio quality on the DVD were both stellar.

Home Improvement was a hilarious series that was not afraid to touch on serious subjects. The last season certainly did, with aplomb. Well worth having.
