Last Man Standing and Home Improvement Crossover Leaves Fans Desperate for a Reboot

Last Man Standing viewers saw double last night as Tim Allen’s beloved Home Improvement character, Tim ‘The Tool Man’ Taylor, made an appearance on the Fox sitcom. The crossover event featured more than a few nods to Home Improvement, including discussions about neighbor Wilson Wilson, Jr., the Taylor family, and even a potential reboot. Say what?!

Thursday’s episode of Last Man Standing (Season 9, Episode 2, “Dual Time”) saw Mike Baxter confronted with a seemingly insurmountable problem: a broken disposal. When Vanessa (Nancy Travis) hires a home repairman, she and her husband are shocked to discover that he looks exactly like Mike — and has a knack for imbuing his home improvement projects with life lessons. “This is bizarre,” says Mike. “You look just like me, except his hair’s a little grayer!”

“And you look just like me, except you color your hair,” replies Tim with a laugh.

As the two fix the sink, they bond over their respective careers and their shared values. During a backyard conversation, Tim reveals how much he misses his old neighbor, Wilson (played by Earl Hindman, who died in 2003). “I miss Wilson,” he says sadly. “I miss a lot of stuff.”
