Tv Season Info

Series 2 of this sitcom finds Mike (Tim Allen) butting heads with Ryan (Jordan Masterson), the father of Mike's grandson, Boyd (Flynn Morrison). Ryan becomes a bigger presence in Boyd's life, which leads to Mike and Ryan clashing over issues such as Boyd taking Ryan's last name. Ryan also begins to rekindle his romance with Kristin (now played by Amanda Fuller), Mike's oldest daughter. Since Kristin is no longer dating Kyle (Christoph Sanders), he's free to enter into a relationship with Mike's middle daughter, Mandy (Molly Ephraim). Meanwhile, Mike's youngest, Eve (Kaitlyn Dever), develops a rebellious streak. At one point she ditches football practice and gets drunk at a party, and another incident finds her insisting that her mother (Nancy Travis) quit her job at an environmentally irresponsible company. The series also features guest-star appearances from two of Allen's former "Home Improvement" costars: Richard Karn and Jonathan Taylor Thomas.

Critic Reviews for Last Man Standing: Season 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

There are thousands of households right now going through the same dilemma - political divisions at the dinner table. It's kind of nice that at least one family sitcom was willing to tackle it directly.

Almost a comedy classic.

The problem with Last Man Standing's attempts to go political is exemplified by the first scene of the season première, which remains one of the most uncomfortable scenes of television I've ever watched.

When the biggest draw to a sitcom episode in 2013 is that it features a few minutes of Jonathan Taylor Thomas then, well, that show may have a problem.

I think it's time the folks involved with Last take a closer look at All in the Family, in which the prejudice was built around real jokes.
