(Steve Smith as Red Green)
The show celebrated men. It was set at a falling-apart hunting and fishing lodge, and featured the most bizarre group of men, from a septic service owner to a criminal, who all found camaraderie in avoiding their wives. Red proved himself to be an iffy handyman. He fixed cars, garden tools, and even got to soup up several motorized appliances to even more power. And he did it the way men do things: very little planning, not reading the directions, and several roles of duct tape.
The show now is in endless reruns on PBS. Enjoy!
