Last Man Standing
May 08, 2012 08:00 PMTV Network - ABC
"Last Man Standing" has morphed somewhat over the course of this season, and, some would say (not necessarily us, we're not jumping on a pro or con soapbox here) it has settled into a typical family sitcom sort of a feel. We tell you what, why don't you take a moment (or 30) and tune into the season's final episode. Let us know what you think -- is the show more of a "Home Improvement" now than it was at the beginning of the season? If you haven't watched an episode since the start of the season, give it a try again, what have you possibly got to lose?

We find it exceptionally impressive that "Last Man Standing" is still standing. Please, don't misunderstand us, we aren't suggesting that there is anything in any way wrong with the series, it is jsut that it feels as though it has quietly made it here to season four. Season four. That's really not unimpressive for a show. "Home Improvement," Alan's successful ABC sitcom, did eight seasons, which means that he's going to be halfway there with "Last Man Standing" come May and that is quite good.

For two full seasons, this Tim Allen series has helped anchor ABC's Friday Night programming (in its first season, this was a Tuesday night show). We don't know if you've been watching it, but if you have, you just may have found the funny in it. Tonight is your last chance to find the funny (in a new episode) this season. This is the final episode of year three and, frankly, we wouldn't be surprised if you see the show back in the same time slot next fall for 22 all new episodes (maybe even 24 episodes).

It is okay, you can admit it, you didn't think the Tim Allen series was going to get to a third season, did you? Well, it has, and it starts tonight. For those of you who haven't followed the show, it involves Tim Allen playing a generally befuddled by the modern world guy named Mike Baxter. Mike is married to Vanessa (played by Nancy Travis), and he has daughters and friends and other family members. They are an odd group of people and get into trouble, but by the closing credits everything usually has worked itself out.

Tonight is the 18th episode of the second season of "Last Man Standing" and as such it is the final episode of the season as well. We don't know if you've followed Tim Allen to his move on Friday nights, but if you have you're sure to have seen him perplexed by a world that he doesn't understand and living in a house with more estrogen than he knows what to do with and maybe even ending sentences with prepositions (which would have done if not for that last clause). By the end of a half-hour episode, Allen's character is a smarter, wiser man, but one who still doesn't quite know how to deal with all the women in his life and that allows the next episode to take place.

There is something fantastic about a sitcom on a Friday evening. The work week is hard and relentless, and sometimes you just want to kick your shoes off, put those dogs up on the sofa, and just laugh at your television screen while Tim Allen makes funny noises and complains about the opposite sex. You deserve to enjoy your Friday evening and that's why Tim Allen is there, to help you enjoy it. Tune in tonight and watch as he messes up his life and family pretty badly in the opening half of the episode and then makes it all better in the second half.

When Boyd gets in trouble for playing dodgeball, which is banned for kindergarteners, Mike thinks it's another sign of parents raising wimps; Mike forms a secret afterschool dodgeball club for Boyd and the neighborhood kids.

We like to think that delaying the start of "Last Man Standing" until the beginning of November was some sort of humorous notion someone over at corporate came up with dealing with the show's title. Something along the lines of this premiere being the last sitcom left to start on ABC (outside of the one that is going to air right after it any way). We don't really think it makes for a funny joke, but not every joke has to be funny, some are simply insightful. We aren't sure that this is that, but hey, it wasn't us who made the joke in the first place, it was the schedulers over at ABC. Blame them, not us. Please.

Please, for one night, consider that maybe we should forget everything we think we know about "Last Man Standing." Maybe, for one night, we should just tune into the series without any sort of preconceptions about what Tim Allen may or may not do. People, Elvira is on tonight. Yes, that's right, Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, is going to be on "Last Man Standing." We figure that by the end of the episode it could be that there are no men left standing -- in our world, Elvira can bowl over anyone. Come on, it's Elvira! Elvira! Do we need to say more, because we don't mind repeating 'Elvira' all day long if necessary?
