Tim Allen returns for a second season in "Last Man Standing" as traditional manly man "Mike Baxter," who continues to be surrounded by forces seeking to complicate and feminize his world - although some of that energy may not always come from women.
Mike is often the odd man out in a home dominated by his loving wife and three daughters. He finds himself more frequently at odds with wife Vanessa, a geologist working for an oil company. Each has a strong point of view on a variety of issues ranging from the environment, holiday chores and whom to stay friends with after a divorce to grand-parenting their 5-year-old grandson, Boyd -- possibly Mike's only ally.
This season daughter Kristin, a 23-year-old living at home and single mom to Boyd, will be more of a force to reckon with for Mike; the two disagree about most aspects of politics, and especially about child-rearing. Outspoken Mandy, 18, continues as family diva and teenage drama queen, stirring up trouble by taking a romantic interest in Kyle, sister Kristin's former boyfriend. And Eve, 14, struggling to shake off the role of being a tomboy and daddy's favorite, will do some adolescent acting out of her own.
Compared to home, Mike might be more in charge at his job at The Outdoor Man, an iconic outdoor sporting goods store where he is marketing director. He works alongside his long-time boss and friend, Ed -- who has reconciled with one of his ex-wives -- and the somewhat sensitive Kyle, who considers Mike his mentor. When Ed put Mike in charge of The Outdoor Man's webpage, Mike discovered that the Internet provided him just the outlet he needed... a platform that gives him a voice to appeal to those who agree that manliness is under assault, and a pulpit for his opinions about feeling like the last real man in a feminized world. It was men who built civilizations, invented the locomotive and created ESPN, after all, and Mike Baxter is determined to do what he must to reclaim his manly place in his home and at his job.
