    IMHO

    I just saw last nights LMS and am very VERY disappointed that they would make cyber bullying a “fun thing for the whole family to do” and nothing more than a joke machine for the episode. Cyber bullying is not funny, it’s not a joke and it’s costing some kids their lives. I say SHAME on ABC and DOUBLE SHAME on Tim Allen for the cavalier way this episode treated a serious subject.

    YMMV

  2. RICK & MICHELE says

    Loved to Show… Watch Only Sports & Movies & VERY FEW Commercial TV shows .. This one Stands out & finally a “family show” we can relax, watch & enjoy ..Without Reality crap & Brides, Simons, KKs , & the like… TV has in general gone DOWN BUT this is humorus, enjoyable & worth watching .. Keep ’em coming .. R & M

  3. cameron says

    100% love it. Its basicly a reboot to home improvement and reminds me alot of george lopez the show. I miss both so bad and george lopez should never of been cancelled.

  4. Caron says

    Sorry they put it up against the number one TV show on but, that is why they created DVRs. I watch NCIS and record Last man. They need to hash some personalities out and move it to somewhere there isn’t something so powerful against it and they will have a pretty good show. I like Nancy and glad she took this job instead of staying with Hart of Dixie. She made a better career choice. By the sheer drop in numbers ABC should realize that CBS has Tuesdays penned up. Move to another night please.

  5. Katie says

    I think Tim and Nancy are funny. The actors who play their children are not nearly as good but I really think it’s because their characters are so cliched. I find the oldest daughter particularly annoying.

  6. Craig says

    I don’t think Tim is quite as funny as he was in Home Improvement, but I think his family is much funnier this time around. I really like the teen daughters, and Nancy Travis has always been a favorite of mine. I don’t mean to offend the Home Improvement fans, but Travis would have been a great wife for Tim on Home Improvement.

  7. ThatBob says

    I wasn’t expecting much, but I actually laughed a few times. I like the cast. Once they start fleshing things out and the supporting cast finds their characters it may have potential.

  8. says

    I loved the show. Just like I thought I would. I love Tim Allen as an actor. My husband even enjoyed it and he is not a Tim Allen fan. I think it should be renewed. If the first episode is an example of the show, I loved it.

  9. says

    I think it was picking up where Home Improvement left off. The writing is excellent. The cast is great and their performances were top-notch. I laughed a lot. It should stay on for a long time if it keeps the quality of the material up there with the better sitcoms.
