  • NASCAR driver Tony Stewart guest stars in this hilarious and awesome episode

    Mike misses the excitement of his adventures and Kyle finds a way to rekindle it, while Vanessa is reminded of the risks she took before being a mother. I thought that this was an excellent episode of "Last Man Standing". The episode was hilarious and I just loved the premise in this whole episode. What I also loved about this episode is that it had a good message which was "Just because you're an adult and you have responsibilities, doesn't mean that you shouldn't live your life a little and have fun" (it was something close to that but all I know is that it was an excellent message). It's definitely one of the best messages I've ever heard from a sitcom. NASCAR driver Tony Stewart guest starring in this episode was also awesome. My brother is a NASCAR fan and I get bored watching it but whenever I do watch a NASCAR race (even if it's half of it), I would usually root for Tony Stewart while my brother would root for Jeff Gordon. So yeah, there were many hilarious moments to get a really good laugh which I can't remember at this moment but I did laugh a lot. Also, the scene with Vanessa fighting that one robber and shooting the other robber was too predictable because I totally knew that it was her dream. Seriously? it wasn't realistic so it would've been weird if it was real. But yeah, the lesson to this episode was that you gotta live your life a little even though if you're an adult and you have responsibilities. The most AMAZING part of this episode was that Mike got to drive Tony Stewart's NASCAR and Vanessa got to go sky-diving.... they were both living the life and enjoy it at the moment which made it amazing and it made me smile. I know that when I'm an adult, I'll still live my life and enjoy it by doing things I want at least once in a while. Overall, an excellent and hilarious episode of "Last Man Standing" with an amazing and very true message. 10/10moreless
  • Mike and Vanessa learn to live a little.

    Great episode. Many shows use the "You have to live every once and a while" plots at least once but Tim Allen and the rest of the cast of
    Last Man Standing did it better than most. It's more Vanessa than Mike, even though Kyle talks Mike into driving Tony Stewart's car back to the building. Vanessa, who supposedly was once into smoking and bar fights, goes skydiving with Kristin, who previously was trying to hide it from her mother, but no one can keep a secret in this world. Eve was trying to keep it a secret from Vanessa, and Mandy, thank goodness, had no other role than getting Kristin to admit she was skydiving. Anyhow, I love this kind of plot. It has a great moral. Sometimes you just GOTTA go out and live! Mike and Vanessa do so in this very enjoyable episode of
    Last Man Standing.moreless
