Home Improvement was one of those iconic shows of the 90s that were endlessly entertaining. Tim Taylor loved his family very much, and his wife, Jill, was an excellent mother who didn't hesitate from doing what she had to do to have a better life. Their three boys were all pretty good kids, obviously Randy was the best one because JTT was everyone's crush, but all three had some good moments.
The real star of the show that deserves a heck of a lot more credit than he gets was Wilson. He was the Taylor's trusty neighbor who was always there to lend a ear. He gave the most insightful advice, drawing on classic literature, ancient proverbs, and even some past presidents.
The fact that we never saw his face may have made us think of him as more of a comedic character, but if you actually go back and listen to the things he said to Tim, they are all ridiculously intelligent and impressive.
Going back and rewatching the show as an adult might give you a bit more insight than watching it as a kid did. Here are some of the best pieces of advice Wilson gave to Tim, even though Tim obviously never quite grasped the concepts.
