Does anyone here watch The Last Man Standing? I really like Tim Allen and watch all his movies and shows and never have a problem. However, the show is really leaving a foul taste in my mouth. I'm tired of the political crap, regardless of the side I fall on. There's enough political crap all day long on FB and twitter and news. I don't want to watch it in a sitcom. I'm thinking this is it for me with the show because it's just getting worse.

Then you'd love The Last Man Standing because they are shoving conservative crap down everyone's throat. ;)

I just don't see the point of it in a sitcom. It's not a political sitcom, it's not a war-based sitcom. It used to be about the daughters/mother and the father being the only 'guy' but it's just veered so far off it's course and it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I'm not saying there should never be a political comment here and there, but it's become the focus of the show. 

It would be great if it were more middle ground, as most people are. But it's not. Like I don't mind the ROTC story with the daughter and how they believe being in the service is awesome and all that (I agree) but then it goes beyond that with attacking the president and all this other stuff. I don't need that in a sitcom. KWIM?

Yes it bothers me tremendously especially when they try to start pushing liberal crap down everyone's throat.
