Tonight, November 2nd, “Last Man Standing” airs for it’s second season. The ABC sitcom stars Tim All and airs today at 8/7 c. The premiere airs one week prior to Election Day, and in that spirit the producers have the characters engaging 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 abashedly 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.”
I used to love watching Tim Allen in “Home Improvement” and was so sad when the show ended. This was the first time I had watched “Last Man Standing” and really enjoyed it! The show is lighthearted and funny and left me with a good feeling. I’m looking forward to more shows this season!
Don’t forget “Last Man Standing” airs tonight at 8/7 c!
I received a screener copy of the Season Premiere of “Last Man Standing” from 20th Century Fox Television to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.
