Great final seasonMay 13, 2008
By Doktor Dan
Some of the more poignant, timely topics were covered in this season. I missed Randy, but otherwise it was so enjoyable. Bittersweet to see it all end. As any afficianado knows, it wasn't about the acting. The strength of the show was in the multitude of interactions that let us laugh at ourselves - or the people in our lives the characters reminded us of! I'll be watching these episodes for years to come.

Way to celebrate the familyMay 16, 2008
By Joseph J. Healy, Jr.
We witnessed an end of an era with the conclusion of Home Improvement. How sad it is to see the family so poorly celebrated in our present-day sitcoms! Thank you, HI, for reminding us that we're not alone in our familial tribulations, and our desire to destroy things with power tools is not entirely a certifiable offense! I too will be watching these DVDs many years into the future, waiting for that much-anticipated HI reunion in Paris!

Saying Goodbye Is HardJun 19, 2008
By Alyice Edrich
I've watched the season finale twice today. It's hard to believe that it's been nearly nine years since this show ended. I raised my kids on Home Improvement. It was a great family time show--not like the crap that airs on free t.v. today. There were family values, lots of laughter, and healthy relationships. It was about building bonds, building strong character, and laughter--lots of laughter. In season 8, what made Home Improvement so special doesn't always come across but there are several great episodes in this season, the finale being one of them.

Just finished watching this today......Jun 23, 2008
By R. L. Towler
All I can say is well done; Buena Vista Home Entertainment. They really did justice to this series; by adding extras to the DVD sets and this volume is no different. It has blooper reels; and also includes the "Backstage Pass" episode that ran right after the series finale on ABC. I remember this because it showed Wilson's (Earl Hindman) entire face in the cast introductions after the series finale ended. During the series run in the cast intro's in front of the studio audience; Wilson would come out holding a small prop of a fence on the lower part of his face and as everyone knows this was a running gag throughout the series.
It also includes the 2003 special; "Tim Allen Presents: A Users Guide to Home Improvement". I think I saw this on PBS a few years ago. It Has Tim, Al, Heidi and Rock (Casey Sander) in front of a live studio audience. Earl Hindman (Wilson) narrates the show; but is not seen except in film footage played throughout the show. It's live action and footage of funny moments throughout the series. But it's nice that they included it in this DVD set.
So if you are looking for family oriented entertainment and have not bought this yet; go ahead and do so; it's a great set and a nice way to end this wonderful series. I wish there were more shows on TV just like this one.

Its what it wasJun 05, 2008
By Martin G. Howe
This was a Very Funny Series. Yes there were some episodes not so funny and some were sidesplitting. To complain about the acting on a DVD release is silly. You buy the series releases because you liked the program. Not as an Emmy judge.
