  • Tim manages to mess up Valentine's Day for the first of many times

    One of the best episodes of season 1. In this episode we get the first of many times that Tim screws up a romantic weekend with Jill, by telling Mr. Binford that they love camping so he gets roped into a camping trip to show off new Binford camping equipment.

    Of course Tim manages to screw up the trip by setting himself on fire with his electric socks, loses the car and manages to not get to the Stone Creek Lodge with Jill.

    This episode is even better than the Pilot which started it all. Proof that Home Improvement is one the funniest shows ever.moreless
