Last Man Standing

Series Summary
Mike Baxter (Tim Allen) is the quintessential man's man. Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of room for that at home where he lives with his three daughters and wife, Vanessa (Nancy Travis). The only other male in the house is his oldest daughter's young son, Boyd. Now, after being a stay-at-home mom for years, Vanessa goes back to work, forcing Mike to take on more parental responsibility than ever before. But his daughters aren't prepared for their old-fashioned, hotheaded patriarch to take over the house. When not at home, Mike is surrounded by men at his job at sporting-goods retailer Outdoor Man, which sells items like guns, jerky and camouflage recliners.

  • It still carries a decidedly throwback vibe, and the ongoing bluster about the state of manhood in the world feels, at best, two steps behind the times. Show More

  • The only differences between Last Man Standing and the old "Home Improvement" are that Allen's name is Mike this time, his job is working for a sporting goods company as opposed to a hardware manufacturer, and his three kids are teenage daughters. Show More

  • Allen and Travis, who are both better than you r average comic actor, seem aware that they're trapped in a particular cookie-cutter sitcom hell, forced to laugh their way through stale gags about kids while other new TV comedies explore family life with clever, contemporary touches.
