Since Full House
began, Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) has been worried his girls would grow up too soon. In the show's seventh season, D.J. (Candace Cameron) continues to see Steve (Scott Weinger), but now he's in college--and has his own apartment. As for Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), she starts hanging out with an "edgy" junior high crowd (including The Practice
's Marla Sokoloff). Nothing bad happens, of course, but it's enough to raise Danny's blood pressure a notch or two. Even Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) is tired of being treated like a little kid, so he eases up on a few rules.
Aside from the Katsopolis twins (Dylan and Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit), who are now walking and talking, that leaves Jesse (John Stamos) and Joey (Dave Coulier). With Joey's assistance, Jesse becomes a leather-clad businessman when he takes over the Smash Club, where his old band got their start. At the opening, Ben Stein shows up as a restaurant reviewer, while the Del Rubio Triplets perform Devo's "Whip It" ("Another Opening, Another No Show"). That's the good news. The bad news hits a few episodes later when Danny's fiancée, Vicky (Gail Edwards), informs him that she's moving to New York ("The Perfect Couple").
For the most part, the seventh season represents a holding pattern for Full House. There are no cast additions or subtractions, but the characters do embark on some new adventures, mostly of the dating variety (plus, D.J.'s hair gets incrementally shorter, while Becky's gets darker). Notable episodes include "The Test," in which D.J. has a nightmare about her SATs (guest starring Vanna White), "The Last Dance," in which Jesse loses his grandfather, and "Too Little Richard Too Late," in which the legendary performer plays a benefit for Michelle's school--with Uncle Jesse on drums. --Kathleen C.

Fun and games, love and laughs - all under one roof! Full House is back for a sunny seventh season with 24 episodes full of remember-when joy. This time around, Jesse inherits the Smash Club, the venue where his band used to play. Joey falls for a comedienne who's into insult humor (sooo unTanner.) And Danny wins a perfect-couple contest with an unlikely ?fianc?e.ï¿½he girls are busy, too: Michelle enters a soapbox derby. D.J. sweats the SATs and Stephanie starts a new school and makes a surprising new friend. But the biggest surprise comes last, when Danny gets an offer on the Tanner house at double its value. With the house so full and lives so busy, could it be time for everyone to split up and move on?
