Fans of 90s family sitcoms, you're in for a treat. It was announced in the fall that Home Improvement's Tim and Jill Taylor would have sort of reunion on Allen's current show, Last Man Standing. After what feels like far too long, we finally get a brief clip of Patricia Richardson and Tim Allen together onscreen again!
Friends and former costars of Tim Allen have already made some appearances on the show. The 90's heartthrob Jonathan Taylor Thomas (Randy Taylor) played John Baker in a few episodes and the much beloved Richard Karn (Al Borland) guest starred as Bill McKendree.
Sure, it's always great to see former costars working alongside each other again, but is anything more sacred than the bonds of television marriage? I think not! And this time Jill, or should I say Helen, is the one with the power tools.
In this parallel TV universe Patricia Richardson's character Helen is a new neighbor who loves working with tools early in the morning, and subsequently waking up Tim's character Mike Baxter. From the looks of things, the two don't exactly hit it off right away.
To watch the full first look of Patricia Richardson's guest role on the show be sure to head to Entertainment Weekly. There are some jabs directed towards Tim's Home Improvement character, some flannel shirts, and even some behind-a-fence banter. Classic.
Here are a few of our favorite bits from the clip:
The classic "You look familiar," line gets thrown out. A sitcom staple. Get it? It's funny because they do know each other in real life. Ahhh comedy.
Helen doesn't seem to like Mike telling her what to do. Perhaps a bit of carryover from Jill's character?
Flannels and power tools. Just like the good old days!
There it is! The behind-the-fence bit. Chuck is certainly rocking that hat as a nod to the late, great Earl Hindman A.K.A. Wilson, of course.
Last Man Standing airs at 8/7c on ABC.
