The seventh go-around of the Emmy®- and Golden Globe®-winning Home Improvement houses some of the series’ most memorable shows, including guest appearances original “Blues Brother” Dan Aykroyd (“Saturday Night Live”), former Detroit Pistons All-star Grant Hill and astronauts Ken Bowersox and Steve Hawley.
In “Thanksgiving,” the Taylors score box seats to a pro football game, but somehow Tim manages to cause a blackout. Tim’s eldest son Brad (Zachery Ty Bryan) almost gets hitched in “An Older Woman.” Tim’s wife Jill (Patricia Richardson who received her fourth Emmy® nomination for the seventh season) makes some rather inappropriate comments about “Tool Time” in “From Top to Bottom,” while wise but rarely seen neighbor Wilson (Earl Hindman) goes face-to-face with an alien in “Believe It or Not.”
Home Improvement’s cast is rounded out by Tim’s mischievous younger sons Randy (Jonathan Taylor Thomas) and Mark (Taran Noah Smith), with former “Family Feud” host Richard Karn as Tim’s flannel-wearing “Tool Time” sidekick Al Borland.
Inspired by the standup comedy of star Tim Allen (“Wild Hogs”), Home Improvement was broadcast on ABC-TV from 1991 to 1999. Allen won a 1995 Best Performance Golden Globe® for his “Toolman” portrayal, and his feature film credits for Disney include “Cars“ and “The Shaggy Dog” as well as franchises “Toy Story” and “The Santa Clause.” Allen is currently shooting “Toy Story 3.” The Denver-born funnyman is also the author of two commercially successful books: “Don't Stand Too Close to a Naked Man” and “I'm Not Really Here.”
Home Improvement co-creators Matt Williams and Carmen Finestra previously wrote for iconic 1980s sitcom “The Cosby Show.”
The Home Improvement: The Complete Seventh Season DVD sells for $23.99 stateside and $35.99 in Canada.
