Dang it! I just discovered this show and they already cancelled.
3.5 readers, as you know, I don’t like to get political on this blog, but on this show, which I enjoyed, Mike Baxter (Tim Allen) was a conservative with one conservative younger daughter, a liberal wife and two older liberal daughters. They sparred, they made fun of each others’ ideas and preferred candidates/political viewpoints but at the end of the day, they all gathered around the table, cared for one another and were there for each other.
This country is too big and there are too many different groups, opposing viewpoints for people to not be able to agree to disagree and be there for each other despite their differences. “You disagree with me so you’re the enemy now!” is how civil wars break out.
Am I saying this show could prevent civil war? No. Am I saying that it is nice to see a family with different viewpoints coming together? Yes. America needs more of this.
