A large series of strong drama begins with the second season. The season opens with Mike, who has decided to play the Dodge Bowl in his back yard, but the kids are very excited. On the other hand, Vanessa also raises a sharp debate at the Yves School of Professional Life. Mike decides to bring a duck for dinner, but Kristen wants him to hide the bird so Boyd does not know about the meat. Mike does not want Eve to play football because everyone depends on her in everything.
The problem with Last Man Standing's attempts to go political is exemplified by the first scene of the season première, which remains one of the most uncomfortable scenes of television I've ever watched.
There are thousands of households right now going through the same dilemma - political divisions at the dinner table. It's kind of nice that at least one family sitcom was willing to tackle it directly.
