Last Man Standing

February 10, 2014 | Karin

If someone were to flip on the TV and channel surf in the evening in the U.S., they would find a number of shows with lazy men and comparatively high-achieving women. And typically, if politics were involved, the show would be making fun of conservatives. Well, for all the conservatives out there looking for a comedy, check out Last Man Standing on ABC.  Tim Allen plays Mike Baxter, a married dad of three daughters who works at a sporting goods store, Outdoor Man. The show is filled with story lines and arguments that might be familiar to conservatives from their own homes. For example, in one episode, we see one of the daughters attacked on Facebook for posting conservative messages. In another, there is a debate over whether the grandson should take medicine for being hyperactive, which leads Mike Baxter to discuss sex differences in little boys and girls.

Even if you aren’t looking for conservative humor, but just manliness in men, you will find plenty of that. Take the episode in which Mike Baxter fights against Valentine’s Day as a made up holiday by raising the prices in his store only to later send his wife flowers as a surprise.

As we get ready for the NeW Gentlemen’s Showcase in March, we’ll be writing more about men, manliness and gentlemen. If you are looking for a male character in a comedy who promotes conservative ideas, check out Last Man Standing.
