On Home Improvement and Last Man Standing, Tim Allen wasn't portraying a "working-class hero"
"In truth, Home Improvement and Last Man Standing are shows about wealthy families, media personalities, and massive privilege," says Kathryn VanArendonk. Both of Allen's roles as Tim Taylor and Mike Baxter aren't working-class, she argues. "Networks may well reboot one of these shows — 'economic diversity' was always a thin euphemism for Trumpism," she says. "But any reading of these shows that argues they’re speaking to a 'real,' silenced America is false. They are representations of wealthy white privilege, every bit as elitist as the politics they supposedly rail against." ALSO: Don't forget Home Improvement was a massive indictment of toxic masculinity.
