Home Improvement 20th Anniversary Collection

Updated on August 15, 2017

Home Improvement was actually one of my favorite sitcoms of all time. I remember the show aired during my high school years and college years. I remember taking a break from school work just to watch the show. To me it was entertaining and worth the break, To me the show was hilarious. There was tons of stuff going wrong since it was a show about home improvement going wrong. The show was also about current problems that affect families today. There was a mix of comedy with serious issues and I think that's what made the sow great.

Tim the tool man Taylor

To me Tim is just an accident prone guy on the quest for more power. He would try to build new things or make an attempt at improving items by making them all powerful. Of course he had no clue what he was doing most of the time so he would either mess it up, or hurt himself. To me his character made the show. His screw ups made me laugh and his quest for more power led to drama like fights with the wife, his co-host Al and his three boys making one liners about his failed home improvement conquests. His quest for more power and powerful things also led to Tim putting his foot in his mouth and making comments that could be perceived as chauvinistic.

Wilson the neighbor

Wilson the neighbor whose face you would never really see since he was always behind the fence. To me he was always the voice of reason on the show. He gave advice to Tim his wife and his kids. He would always use these parables about events in past history to make his point about current problems family was facing. I enjoyed this since it made the show not just about comedy but about problems that affect modern families

Al the assistant on the show

I liked the home improvement show that Tim hosted with Al called Tooltime. I found that to be very entertaining. The way Tim would try to teach how something was done but, in actuality he had almost no clue. I found it funny that Al had to correct him so many times and clean up so many of his messes. These were the parts of the show that honestly made me crack up the most.

Jill Tim's wife

The wife that had a lot of patience. The way Tim was with destroying things with the intention of making them better led to a lot of fights and stress. There were a lot of laughs in that too. I remember the fights Tim had with Jill. Tim would go to Wilson for advice. Wilson gave him advice using big words and events in history. Tim would try to rephrase these parables and it was belly up laughter for me.

More Power!
