It's your standard sitcom fluff - it goes down easy and keeps you entertained, but it's not must-see TV.
A relaxed and likable show...Allen is one of the fall's freshest finds. But all the best punch lines in the hilarious pilot came right out of his "Men Are Pigs" stand-up routine. With the writers out on their own, the humor seems to be thinning out.
Bottom line is that this is one hilarious half hour. Probably a half dozen laugh-out-loud side-busters and a couple dozen chucklers. Even the obvious jokes are so well-timed they get a laugh.
Strong writing, relatable storylines, and a great cast make Home Improvement a winner for families.
While it's easy to see how the show could become quickly tiresome, at first blush it's harmlessly amusing.
Allen's sitcom may well work, although by the second episode it already shows uneasy signs of cuteness bloat, right down to Tim ineptly trying to make a swivel-based cookbook holder for his wife...fairly routine sitcom fodder.
