Home Improvement: The Complete Seventh Season
I was a huge fan of Home Improvement growing up and remember waiting for the show each week like I do for Entourage today. You rarely find a character as memorable as Tim 'The Tool Man' Taylor. The Seventh Season is out on DVD tomorrow and with it I am reminded on how great the series was, and how unique this season was.
DVD Review: Home Improvement Season 7
The only thing that troubles me about the latter seasons of Home Improvement is that they try to take some issues a little more seriously. The lighter fare that some come to expect gets (slightly) thrown out the window a little more often when you approach Season Seven. I, however, only found a few of the 25 episodes to miss the mark.
Some guest appearances include Dan Aykroyd and Grant Hill, and they are very enjoyable. I also like how the season allowed for Tim to take a look at his job and consider whether he was still on the right path. Some might remember this Seventh Season as the one where Tim considers leaving Tool Time for good.
The only real complaint(s) I have are the kid actors. I don't mind the middle child (Randy - played by Jonathan Taylor Thomas), but the other two get on my nerves frequently as they age. The young one acts and looks like he is ready to take a sniper rifle to a tall tower and the older son (played by Zachery Ty Bryan) has more baggage than Kirstie Alley.
Go buy this DVD. It's Home Improvement, which already guarantees you can't go wrong.
Home Improvement: The Complete Seventh Season is out on DVD tomorrow, August 7th.
