Tonight’s episode of Assembly Required is going to a great one. As the series nears the end of its first season the builds are getting more interesting and more practical.

Tim Allen and Richard Karn are really pushing the limits of the show’s contestants. During the new episode, builders will construct two items that every driver needs.

First, the builders will concoct a new spin on a vehicular staple. They’ll be building headlights for the first round of Assembly Required. Improving headlights is going to be like reinventing the wheel. However, it gets more interesting in the second round. The show’s Twitter account shared a short teaser for tonight’s episode that lets viewers know what’s coming.

The Assembly Required team is looking to keep it clean tonight. So, contestants who make it to the second round will have to build a driveway street sweeper. However, it’s not all about function. The builds have to be both functional and stylish, according to the sneak peek video.

The Draw of Assembly Required

The quick teaser shows more than just what fans can expect from the new Assembly Required episode. More importantly, it shows the real reason to tune in. That is the chemistry between Tim Allen and Richard Karn. If you were a fan of their characters on Home Improvement and long for that 90s-era comedy, this show has you covered.

In the Assembly Required teaser, we can see Allen and Karn exchanging good-natured barbs. This comedic chemistry is a large part of what carried their former show. Currently, it elevates their show from a reality competition show to a truly entertaining series. The comedy that the hosts inject into the show is a hidden gem of nostalgia tucked away between the extreme builds and tense competition.

If you haven’t checked out Assembly Required yet and you’re a fan of Home Improvement, you’re missing out. Luckily, there are several ways to watch the show. If you want to catch it when it airs, tune in to the History Channel Tuesdays at 10/9c. On the other hand, if you want to catch up on older episodes, you can head over to the History Channel website and watch most of the season for free. In fact, you can go watch tonight’s episode, “Swept Away,” on the site right now.

The current season of Assembly Required is set for ten episodes. The ninth episode airs tonight. With only one week left of the show, there is still no word about future seasons. That’s a double-edged sword. History hasn’t canceled the show. However, they haven’t greenlit a second season either.
