Review: Last Man Standing

Mike Baxter (portrayed by Tim Allen) is literally the last man standing at least in his own family. In addition to his wife, Vanessa, Mike has three daughters, so he is a minority among so many women. The youngest of his daughters, Eve, is the tomboy that plays football and understands her father better than the other girls. Mandy is a spoiled teenager who hangs out at the mall all day. Kristin is a down to earth girl that manages to get pregnant after high school and now raises her two years old Boyd in her parents' home while working as a waitress.

Last Man Standing seems to be a universe dominated by female characters. Only Mike's boss, Ed, the owner a sports store adds to the number of masculine characters in the show. Mike travels a lot to different parts of the world for photo shoots to add to the store’s catalog. There is also Kyle, the new guy at the store, a goofy character which by the end of the first episode will start dating Kristin.

Last Man Standing is a somewhat misogynistic, xenophobic, homophobic, racist, and everything else you might think offensive. The jokes are not all perfect, and it is mainly Allen's character that comes up with them. Because it has a bit of a misogynistic approach, female characters in the series are rather weak and stereotypical. The wife accepts Mike despite his obvious flaws; the girls are not all well developed as their father sets a disappointing example. We have the single mom, the boyish girl, and the spoiled rather hysterical one. Mike feels that the work place is actually his sanctuary away from all the annoying women at home. It is funny how in the end his advice actually helps the girls overcome their problems.

Verdict:
Last Man Standing is offensive at times, and the jokes are not all that funny. However, it is still a fun series that deals with family matters and especially with raising daughters.
