Storyline

Judge Harold T. Stone presides over "Night Court", a court which deals with petty crimes which can be dealt with in a dime-a-dozen manner. Invariably, the cases appearing before the court are bizarre, but that's ok because Judge Stone is not your regular judge. He's assisted by a motley crew of clerks and District Attorneys who often create as much chaos as the criminals they bring in for trial. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Trivia

It is mentioned several times that Dan's real first name is Reinhold - a name which everyone else finds very unappealing. This is a reference to the show's creator, Reinhold Weege. A possible continuity issue arose with the character of Dan's mother, who always referred to her son as "Danny". Whether this meant Dan actually WAS his name, or that she was simply calling him by his preferred name, was unclear. See more »

One of the 80's Best
12 February 2002 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

The 80's produced some of Televisions best sitcom's, and Night Court is one of the eras shining examples. Harry Anderson's, Judge Harold T Stone is surrounded by an eccentric but very likable group. From the womanizing antics of John Larroquette's Dan Fielding, to Richard Moll's confused lovable giant, Bull Shannon, the cast never disappointed.

They were not afraid to be bizarre, as the writers would give us scenes such as Wild E Coyote appearing before Judge Stone for chasing the Road Runner. The cast would also face believable moral dilemmas, that alot of today's sitcom's do not dare attempt, or pull off as successfully.
