Trivia

+In the second season, the movie Galaxy Quest (1999) (staring Tim Allen) was referenced by Kyle when he said Allen’s catch phrase from the movie, “Never give up, never surrender.”

+ Although she played the oldest Baxter sister in the first season, Alexandra Krosney is actually one year and seven months younger than Molly Ephraim, who plays the middle sister.

+ In season 1 episode 15, Mike’s daughters are watching paranormal activity 2, Molly Ephraim who plays Mike’s middle daughter also starred in the movie.

+ In Ed’s basement, there’s three movie posters. The middle one is for Toy Story (1995). Tim Allen (who plays Mike Baxter) starred in it.

+ During season 5 episode 22 when Ryan is returning Mike’s toolbox, the manufacturer label is present and it displays “Binford” which is the tool brand Tim Allen’s character in Home Improvement sells.
+ In season 5 Bill Engvall guest starred. He and Nancy Travis starred in the Bill Engvall show together.
+ The character of Kristin Baxter in Last Man Standing was recast after the first season. This was because the producers wanted to retool the family dynamic by aging the character and her son.
