When this show came out in 2011 it was clever, funny, and the main character Mike Baxter, played by Tim Allen, was decidedly right wing and outspoken. When Donald Trump won the presidency, ABC cancelled the show. Fox brought it back a few years ago but apparently the writers were either lobotomized or warned to castrate the show to make it acceptable to their woke corporate masters.
At this point it truly is unwatchable. The two older daughters and their husbands have been infantilized into mewling morons prattling on about inanities that would embarrass a five-year-old to admit to. The characters at Mike’s work place are not quite as imbecilic as Mike’s children but it’s close. And I’ll have to say Tim Allen isn’t looking well. I guess he’s getting up there because he seems weak, almost frail. Maybe it’s just the effect of being forced to go through the motions on a show that’s been gutted and then put on display as a trophy and a warning to anyone who dares to dispute the primacy of the narrative.
Farewell Tim Allen. You had a good run. You should have quit while you were ahead.
