* CriticProof: The show was never a big darling of the critics (having to compete with edgier material with the likes of ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'', ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' and ''Series/{{Friends}}''), the cast got nominated a few times but only Tim Allen won a Golden Globe. But it was extremely popular with the People's Choice Awards, it was a top ten show (#1 a few years) for its entire run.

** Of the kids, Randy was the most popular for very smart and snarky, able to play off his dad better than the others. Supplementing this was Jonathan Taylor Thomas being a great actor and rising to TeenIdol stardom, the producers took advantage of this by giving him some of the meatier story arcs.

* FranchiseZombie: The network wanted to keep the show going but everyone involved, including Patricia Richardson and Tim Allen, knew that they had reached their peak at 7 seasons. The last season is generally considered the point when the show was running out of steam.

** When Tim's brother gets a job offer in Detroit, he mentions how he'd love to take it but he's not sure he'd be able to afford a local house. This line looks very different to modern audiences, particularly those who are aware that Detroit was one of the hardest-hit cities by the property value crash of Great Recession, to the point where some people ended up dumping their homes for around $5000 just so they would get ''anything'' for them, and they still haven't really recovered!
