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
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

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.
