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

While majority of the show is taped in front of a live audience, the rapid montage scenes were shot first before tapings. See more »
The series often describes "unattractive" people (Bull most-often, but not exclusively) as looking "Cro-Magnon". This is incorrect. We -- modern folks -- are Cro-Magnon (homo sapiens sapiens). "Neandertahl" (homo sapiens neanderthalensis) would be the better term of offense. (See Wikipedia for a discussion.) See more »

Oh, don't worry, Your Honor. I'm just having one of those dreams where you show up to work in your underwear.
Bull, this isn't a dream.

One of the best comedies of all time, this series will always have a special place in my heart. Not only was Harry Anderson and John Larroquette excellent in their roles along with back up characters like Richard Moll, Markie Post, Charles Robinson, Florence Halop, Marsha Warfield, and Mike Finneran. Often times great, with great guest performances by the likes of Dick Butkus and Mel Torme, this was one of those Golden Oldie sitcoms that should be considered one of the patron saints of the medium. Nowadays, most sitcoms die and fluster, but this one was excellent from the start. Hopefully, a special set with all of the episodes will be released someday, because I will most certainly get this set.
