10 Reasons Why Home Improvement Will Always Be Iconic

Tim never gets Wilson's advice right.

10 Reasons Why Home Improvement Will Always Be Iconic
Huffington Post

If you have never seen the show "Home Improvement," then you have been done a great deal of injustice. It's one of my favorite tv shows of all time. I personally believe it's Tim Allen's best performance besides his movies. I must admit that I did have a crush on a young Jonathon Taylor Thomas but honestly what person wouldn't? My dad and mom love this show, and they don't enjoy many tv shows. This show will always be tv gold for me.

1. Tim never gets Wilson's advice right, and it's hilarious.

But he gets it right when it counts. He might come off as a guy who is goofy and not exactly bright (no offense), but he understands and communicates in his own way.

2. Tim and Al's dynamic on Tool Time sometimes makes you wonder how the show still runs.

I realized that it's about the yin and the yang, balancing each other out. Tim, with his jokes and knowledge of tools, and Al, with his "I don't think so, Tim" and patience, more or less, balance each other out.

3. The boys' relationship is one that anyone with siblings can relate to.

They are the "no one can mess with my siblings but me" type. In the gif, the guy in the flannel was picking on Mark, so Brad and Randy come over to defend him. Yet any other time, you will see the boys playing pranks on each other and teaming up to play pranks on Tim.

4. Tim's relationship with each of the boys is different and special.

With Brad, it's about bonding over cars, tools, ad the like. With Randy, it's about bonding over being pranksters and jokers. With Mark, it's about bonding over being the youngest and teaming up together against Brad and Randy.

5. Tim and Jill are true #relationshipgoals.

While most of the time it's Tim apologizing, there are episodes where Jill messes up and apologizes. They don't give up on each other and are there for each other when life gets tough. Each episode you can see how much they love and care for each other. The show always shows what marriage is actually like: fights, drama, little things, boring.

6. They all support each other.

In this episode, Jill had to write a speech for the library and was having a hard time with it. So Mark and Tim dress up as women [from the library] to help ease Jill's anxiety over it.

7. Gender stereotypes are broken.

It was common the 90's for women to take care of the house and family while the men went out and made the money. But this show breaks that gender role and many others.

8. Tim's attempts to be Mr. Mom.

Tim, the human form of masculinity itself, is attempting to step into the role of mom to help the boys learn manners at the dinner table. The role reversal is hilarious and shows that husbands and wives have to share the roles of the parent and of the house equally.

9. The signature grunt.

10. This scene that all 90's kids should understand.

For those who don't know, Jonathon Taylor Thomas (actor above) played Simba in "The Lion King".

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
