    Television is pure garbage today, reruns and remakes of old crap. Movies suck even worse, sequel after sequel and super hero crap.

    There is no creativity in the movie or television industry or very little.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Re-runs have always been around. I don't think it has anything to do with current events.

    Nah, it is just that their new ideas flop.

    Tim Allen 'overwhelmed' by fans' push to bring back 'Last Man Standing' after 'Roseanne' backlash

    Tim Allen is feeling inspired by fans who have recently begun petitioning again for a "Last Man Standing" revival.

    "Last Man Standing" fans called on ABC to bring back Allen's show after Roseanne Barr revealed on Monday her sitcom character is a Trump supporter in the upcoming "Roseanne" reboot headed to the network. Allen's show famously featured conservative values and many speculated that was the reason behind its cancellation.

    "The support from all the fans to bring back 'Last Man Standing' is truly overwhelming to me and so appreciated," Allen told Fox News exclusively. "I, along with the talented writers, wonderful crew and terrific actors would definitely entertain the idea of bringing the show back as there is so much gas left in the tank, more to be said, and laughs to be had."

    The 64-year-old told us his fans' recent push to revive "Last Man Standing" has given him hope that the show could make a comeback.

    "I know fans would love nothing more than for us to take the cover off, fire up the engine, back this car out of the garage and get it back on the highway, full-throttle," Allen said. "My sentiment sits in the front seat beside you."

    Allen, a conservative himself who has voiced his support for President Trump, played Mike Baxter, who is also politically conservative, on the show -- which was canceled in May 2017 despite its high ratings.

    "Last Man Standing" has been praised for being one of the few shows that appeal to a conservative viewership and ABC vehemently denied it gave the show the boot over its politics.

    I had never seen that show until I was having my truck sprayed with a bed liner. It was playing in their waiting room. I saw three episodes while I was waiting. I thought it was pretty good.

    I heard about it here on the forum, but think I saw only one episode. Allen was OK in his earlier tool man show, but his movies are terrible. Last Man Standing was an improvement.

    Generally, I find comics in comedies sad and pathetic. When they play dramatic rolls is when they do best. Christoph Walt, something of a comedian, is brilliant as the Jew Hunter in "Inglourious Basterds." I can't stand Steve Carell, but in "Foxcatcher" he was brilliant.
