Tim Allen returns for a second season as the traditional “manly man,” Mike Baxter, whose mission it is to get men back to their rightful place in society. You can’t get manlier than Mike Baxter. He remembers the exciting adventures he had while traveling for work and of course, he drives a pick-up truck. But Mike is about to find out that it’s not a man’s world anymore. While he might be king of the hill at work, he’s the odd man out in a home dominated by his wife and three daughters. There’s his wife, Vanessa, a geologist, and their three daughters: 14-year-old tomboy, Eve; the outspoken Mandy, 18; and Kristin, a 22-year-old single mom living at home with her young son, Boyd, possibly Mike’s only ally. Mike was grounded from traveling for his company’s international photo shoots, and now works as the marketing director for The Outdoor Man, an iconic outdoor sporting goods store. He works there with his long-time boss and friend, Ed and the somewhat sensitive Kyle, who considers Mike his mentor. When Ed put Mike in charge of the company’s webpage, Mike discovered that the Internet provides him with just the outlet he needs. He looks at it as a platform that gives him a voice to appeal to those who agree that manliness is under assault, and a pulpit for his opinions about feeling like the last real man in a woman’s world. After all, men built civilizations, invented the locomotive and created ESPN, and Mike Baxter is determined to do what he must to reclaim his manly place in his home and at his job.

This show was absolutely great! It was HILARIOUS and had so much potential. Cast changes can either make or break a show and sadly, this cast change broke it. It's still funny but not funny as it was. Alexandra who played Kristen was awesome, i don't even know why they fired her.
Kristin used to be witty and cute and sassy. This new actress:
a) looks nothing like the old one
b) has a montone voice
c) is not the original
BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL KRISTEN!!!!
Not just cast changes, but character types
The original Kristin was more believable as a young mom, and since Mandy is still 18, it's hard to make the "TV Years" leap for Boyd. But the new "Dad" for Boyd is such a departure from just the style/type of the Jonas character, it's like they changed The Beaver for "Meathead" (All In the Family). So some of the change is just hard to take.
As for its first storyline - Seriously, they had an obvious slant. They portrayed "anyone with a brain" as voting for Obama, while leaving out a lot of Carter years, Republican congress during the Clinton years, 9/11, and Democrat congress during the Bush years.
So they have a long way to go to redeem themselves. Stay out of politics. Even though the race is over, this was my show for ESCAPING that crap.
