Do you like "Home Improvement"?

I personally loved the show. Probably my all-time favorite. I'd love for Disney to release it on DVD. Did you like it?

I only like the Al Borland parts.

Purely for personal pleasure reasons.

I cant stand that show. Every episode was the same:

Tim has problem.
Asks neighbor for advice.
Tim resolves problem and learns something, while breaking something in the process.

I did not like the show at all!

That's what I voted for. Tim Allen is obnoxious and Tool Time is annoying. Of the episodes I have had to endure due to other people, the only thing remotely interesting on the show were the sons when they got older. They were slightly interesting as teenagers.

I thought the show was okay, but just a little too predictable for my tastes.

terrible, just terrible

It is somewhat entertaining when Tim slips in a thinly veiled sexual joke now and then

on the whole, I hate this show

You do know that that formula was used intentionally, right?

I thought the formula seemed forced only in rare episodes. For me, without a doubt the most enjoyable family sitcom in my life. Some funny episodes, some dramatic episodes, and SO MUCH better than most of what else is/was on...("The Nanny"?, "Third Rock from the Sun"?, "The Hughleys"?, "Something So Right"?, etc., etc.)

Yeah I liked it. I usually laughed once or twice per show (that's pretty good)

I liked the first few seasons. I remember when Home Improvement and Seinfeld were always in competition (same timeslot) Being in Highschool at the time I never heard of Seinfeld but in 1994 I did and that was the end of watching Home Improvement for me. Still I think Tim Allen was a pretty good stand up comedian.
