Judge Judy Used to be Pretty Good
14 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I used to like the show pretty good, but now she is so short and arrogant. She no longer listens to the facts of the case to render a fair judgment. I guess they are doing it for ratings, but I watch it much less now because of it. Come on Judge Judy and producers/directors...tone it down a bit, let the litigants present their evidence and give us the courtroom experience we are looking for. I don't watch Jerry Springer and I watch Judge Judy a lot less now. I want to see a fair and lawful judgment...that's why I watch court shows that have real litigants. Judge Milian my favorite now...along with Judge Mathis and Judge Alex...they all listen to the cases... although some of them allow a little too much background detail to be given by the litigants. Judge Milian is the best.
