  • Almost ever 90's comedy, had a Romeo and Juliet spoof. Home Improvement's take is nothing different of a great episode for a great show.

    Franco Zeffirelli's version of Romeo and Juliet is considered one of the best. The 22-minute Home Improvement is no major production, though it seems to be. Filled with comedy, plot, and fights, the episode is welcomed to the viewers heart.

    Randy is excited because he gets to kiss the "girl of his dreams"; Tim gets to build the stage out of aluminum siding; Wilson gets to direct. Everyone's dreams look to be coming true -- but if they did, we wouldn't consider the show a sitcom, now would we? Randy's problem starts with Wilson treating the actors like first-graders causing Randy to get the blame from his friends. Tim and Wilson argue over the "modern" style of the set Tim spent his time to work on.

    This is a rare episode where people actually get mad or upset with Wilson, and it's a great episode. Other developing stories, including Brad using his mothers own words against her add to the common feel casual Home Improvement watchers are accustomed to. Overall, a great, silly episode that is not to be missed.
