Big changes were in the air for the legal crew of Night Court as the smash hit show entered the seventh season of its epic nine-season run. Status quo is MIA for the court as the season begins with a visit from Harry's estranged dad, former mental patient Buddy (recurring guest John Astin), that results in the two shacking up. Meanwhile, Dan (John Larroquette) begins a season-long quest for new lodgings - a quest complicated by Judge Harry's (Harry Anderson) new roomie.
Making the case for comedy in season seven are visitor from the future VHK 937 (Michael McManus), Roz's (Marsha Warfield) visiting aunt (Della Reese), and a return visit from Mel Tormé. Upping the stakes with a dash of drama, Dan faces disbarment, Christine (Markie Post) faces motherhood as a wedded single mom (Don't ask! Just watch it!), Buddy gets engaged and Yakov Smirnov seeks asylum. Grab the gavel...Bull's about to bring order to the court! Also starring Richard Moll as Bull and Charles Robinson as Mac.
