Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor made his glorious return to network TV, Thursday. The former “Home Improvement” character, played by Tim Allen, appeared on “Last Man Standing” where he tried to help Mike Baxter, also played by Allen.
While the episode was lots of fun, there were also some tender moments. Particularly when Tim mentioned how much he missed his old neighbor Wilson Wilson Jr., played by Earl Hindman who died in 2003.
“I miss Wilson,” said Tim. “I miss a lot of stuff.”
There were also a few lines that led viewers to believe a “Home Improvement” reboot was in the works. In fact, by the end of the episode even Mike was hoping Tim would bring his old show back.
“You might want to think of rebooting that ‘Tool Time’ show,” said Mike. “Maybe this time, add more power.”
