The eighth and final season of Home Improvement ran on ABC from September 22nd, 1998 - May 25th 1999.
Note: Jonathan Taylor Thomas left the series in the beginning of this season to focus on his schooling. His last episode as a main cast member is Adios and he is absent in most of the episodes after that one and does not return in the 3 part series finale. He does, however, return as a guest star in Home for the Holidays, which is his last episode to appear in.
The season introduces the Taylors, the average American family, that really aren't so. Tim Taylor, the man of the house, has his own TV show entitled "Tool Time" with a bachelor co-host Al Borland. Tim is also found to be accident prone and often wanting to rewire and fix things around the house and at work. Jill Taylor is Tim's loving wife, but continually gives him grief over some of the trouble he causes.
Tim and Jill have three sons Brad, Randy and Mark. Each son has their own quirks, Brad is into sports, Randy is smart, and Mark is the younger sensitive brother. They all live in Detroit, Michigan. As said before, Tim often causes mayhem around with machines as well as his marriage. He often goes to his neighbor, Wilson, who is known to give very profound and helpful advice. Wilson is always found in the backyard behind Tim's fence.
