    i saw a few episodes and it’s genuinely funny. Tim Allen and the guy who plays Al Borland are really funny.

    Has anyone else seen this?

    Judging by the location its probably understandable that he missed it the first time, though that doesn't explain why he finds it funny unless I'm missing something about Indian humor.

    I Donno. I only saw 4 or 5 episodes of first season so far and it seemed funny. Granted I had 0 expectations

    It was funny.

    The comments you've got is because the way you wrote it was is if it was a little known show. In reality it was a big hit. Indeed, it was so successful Tim Allen was the highest paid person on television at the time.

    Plus - 'old show'. Bloody hell, it finished 18 years ago. I guess it does qualify as 'old'. :(

    Now that I think about it, @prath92 - there's an old show called MacGyver that you'll maybe like too.

    It was good the first few seasons but it basically is a one joke show.

    Used to watch it as a kid, but I reckon I would find it awful now if I was to watch it today.

    Yeah tbf I was only a kid when I watched it, used to be on channel 4. About the same time as boy meets world. Can't imagine it was particularly intelligent.

    It's just that it's a bit like asking about Frasier (not saying Home Improvement is as good). Very popular show starring Tim Allen, Simba and others that ran for 8 seasons. If you watched TV in the 90's you saw that show.

    It's a fine show and you're not weird for liking it.

    @prath92 Never mind the people mocking you. It's a good show.

    Have you seen this new GIF btw? It's hilarious.

    Anyone ever play the Home Improvement game for the SNES? I just got a retro Raspberry Pi a few months ago and this game was on it
