I will no longer be watching Judge Judy due to her childish behavior...you have created a "monster". This is not the way I feel judges in the United States of America should be represented. I &qu
15 March 2004 | by (Lebanon, Missouri) – See all my reviews

Years ago I watched Judge Judy faithfully. I enjoyed her wit, humor and believe it or not, her "human" side. Yes, her human side used to show through once in awhile.

I watched the show today for the first time in years and was shocked at her rudeness, crudeness and the way she "talked down" to people. There will come a day that she will realize that her behavior is wrong. She is not better than anybody else. You have created a monster. I miss the old "Judge Judy". The one whose "love of family and life" shone through even while controlling the courtroom. This is not the way I prefer for the judges in the United States of America to be represented!
