I think this is a great show. It's a simple sitcom, but I find it much more enjoyable to watch than shows like "Everbody Loves Raymond" and "Will & Grace".

Tim Allen has made some horrendous movies, but don't be put off by that. This is a fun, family sitcom. Each episode's plot is basically the same, but it's still enjoyable.

My favorite parts are the Tool Time "accidents" and Tim's misinterpretations of Wilson's sage advice.

The Wire is surely the best TV show ever broadcast in America. This claim isn't based on my having seen all the possible rivals for the title, but on the premise that no other program has ever done anything remotely like what this one does, namely to portray the social, political, and economic life of an American city with the scope, observational precision, and moral vision of great literature.

The Wire has never won an emmy? [It] deserves the Nobel Prize for Literature!

A huge "YAY". I've been viewing the show since i can remember and watching re-runs on ABC1 now, it still continues to entertain men. It's simple humour, but it works.

I have tried many times to watch it but I just cannot get into it, its boring, bland and Tim Allen plays a character who I find lacks personality... so its Nay for me

Nay. Irritating, derivative, repetitive, overly sacharine.

ah I have a soft spot for HI, was great show when I was younger - although I have to admit watching it now just isnt the same.  I always remember watching the ep where Randy might have cancer... was sad stuff.

Have to agree with Joedini though, was more of a BMW fan, ah Eric he was great... Disney channel used to be great at night when you had Dinosaurs, BMW and then HI all on in a run
