Marilyn Milian rocks!
29 May 2004 | by (Saline, Michigan U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Judge Judy used to be my favorite television judge, but that position has now been usurped by the very honorable - and very beautiful - Marilyn Milian. Pooh-pooh to you, pooh24, I don't know which court show you're watching, but I think Judge Milian is the exact opposite of what you make her out to be. Not only is she easily the most eye-friendly and photogenic judge on TV, she's also the most fair. She can be funny, wise and sarcastic when she wants to be, but she is also caring and compassionate toward her litigants. Unlike Judge Judy, she won't fly off the handle at someone who doesn't deserve it. When she does go a little ballistic, it's only because the litigant she's yelling at is acting like a jerk. And she sure is fun to watch when she does go ballistic - especially when the throws in some of the trademark Spanish phrases she's become known for. It's very nice to see a Hispanic television personality who isn't a Speedy Gonzales-esque stereotype or caricature and who is very proud of her heritage. Also, Judge Milian is not sexist in her judgments, at least not as sexist as Judge Judy can be. If the plantiff is a female and is obviously behaving like a jerk or taking advantage of the defendant (for example, a woman I saw the other day who sued her former friend, who had bestowed upon her all kinds of gifts, including a nose job, and was suing him for not paying for her trip to Texas - her case was dismissed, incidentally), she will tear into her as well as she would a male plaintiff. On top of it all, she's not as cold and businesslike as Judge Judy can be - she'll ham it up with the litigants sometimes, and once when disco singer Carol Douglas was on the show as a plaintiff, the judge had her sing a little of her biggest hit, "Doctor's Orders." Overall, she has made this a very fun show to watch. I'd bring a case before Judge Milian before I'd bring it in front of any other judge on TV. Ten out of ten stars!
