Last Man Standing
Almost all of us have heard of the show Last Man Standing. But many, who have not actually seen it may mistake it to be a survival show.
Although the American sitcom falls far from such a category, the name of the show sure does give an indication of the plot.
The protagonist of the series is Mike Baxter, played by Tim Allen, and the storyline revolves around Mike. It shows him and his daily struggle to maintain his masculinity and position as head of the house in his increasingly female-dominated world.
Details About The Show
The show has completed eight seasons – with the pilot premiering on October 11th, 2011. It completed 6 seasons with ABC before being scrapped for reasons which still remain a mystery. Fox picked up the show in 2018 for two more seasons and is right now, gearing up for a 9th season.
On May 19th, Tim Allen had posted a picture of himself along with onscreen wife played by Nancy Travis on Twitter, the caption reading about how excited he was to be reunited with his TV family.
All About Tim
Tim isn’t any stranger to the show. He has starred some Improvement and been the voice actor for Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story. Moreover, he certainly doesn’t lack stories to tell about the show and his experiences over the years.
Tim recalls the time when Kaitlyn Dever, who plays one of Mike’s daughters, had to leave the show in season 7 due to a heavily packed acting schedule. Tim said that it felt very much like his own daughter had left. Maybe she would come back from time to time, but it wouldn’t feel the same.
This is only natural considering how long the show has run and all it has been through. And this is exactly why the show is so popular and in demand. Even after the storyline has progressed so far- at its core, it’s a story about family and all the ways we can love them, day after day, through thick and thin.
