    The episode where Tim doesnt like the new Binford tool, and he could have lost his job and went back on teh road selling tools

    He said he would have been on the road for 30 weeks

    52 weeks in a year

    so he would have had almost HALF the year off

    whats the downside

    This is the only trace of 3D I could find.

    It was telecast on ABC's "All-3D night" and only the opening and closing "Tool Time" segments had the 3D effect added (anaglyph - red-blue). The DVD however does not have the 3D effect added.

    ABC promoted that particular Tuesday's line-up in advance so that people could go out to a participating store and purchase a set of 3D glasses. I already had my own so didn't need to.

    But the rest of the episode didn’t have it at all?

    Correct. Just the two Tool Time segments.

    I remember being disappointed.

    I like The Route Of All Evil, which is one of my favorites.

    Does anyone remember this?

    There was some animated segment that was on TV just the other day and it was part of somebody's dream sequence or something like that, but I really forget the exact full details.

    General impression:

    Most of the participants of this thread don't seem to actually *like* HOME IMPROVEMENT.

    I always thought it was a highly-rated and well-loved series.

    At the time, it certainly started out that way. But like many comedy shows, it wore out its welcome fast as the formula ran aground (who didn't wear it out? very few. Cheers, Taxi, Barney Miller, Seinfeld)
    It comes down to the kids' episodes being off the wall and Patricia Richardson's admitted dislike of comedy as things wore on. Plus the writers couldn't come up with fresh stuff.

    I could beg to differ regarding SEINFELD. It was quite formulaic in that there was usually some misunderstanding by or around George; Kramer was often in on some kind of scheme, Jerry was usually looking for a girlfriend, and Elaine was screwing something up, and somehow, it was all related by the end. That's not to say that it wasn't funny. It was often hilarious, even if you could sometimes see it all coming from a mile away.

    HOME IMPROVEMENT certainly also followed a set format, and I find that it too is often hilarious. I surely don't get the almost hatred of Patricia Richardson exhibited here. Her reactions to what goes on around her are often priceless. And the fact that she essentially holds together the family unit by being the "sensible" one most of the time, would seem to fit in with the modern elevation of women to higher standards in our society.
