Bud Lutz (Scott Bakula) is an ambulance chasing or rather a fender bender chasing, no client, strip mall attorney. Mr. Bakula's comedic timing is played perfectly against that of Patricia Richardson (Home Improvement) and Delane Matthews (Dave's World). Richardson plays the former high school girlfriend who is a successful attorney with a big name firm. She has never quite gotten over the excitement she found with Bud. Bud has a current younger and somewhat ditsy girlfriend played by Matthews. Bud is in a constant state of conflict between his feelings for the current girl and the unrequited high school love.
This delightful sitcom showcases Mr. Bakula's talent that propelled him to more serious leading roles as Dr. Sam Beckett in "Quantum Leap" and Captain Jonathan Archer in "Star Trek Enterprise". It also displays the talent of the two actresses proved by their subsequent work.
Bakula's comedic style can also be seen in the short lived sitcom "Gung Ho", TV's "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" as well as a number of "Murphy Brown" episodes.
Mr. Bakula is a extremely talented multifaceted actor. With a Tony nominated Broadway performance, various other stage performances, a number of movies and several musical CD's to his credit.
