Best By Far!!!
31 August 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Judge Marylin Millian's intelligence, wit, charm and INCREDIBLE yet tasteful sense of humor, combined with integrity, honesty, respect and caring, makes this show a blast since she took over in 2001. Since then, she managed to have another baby (she's only 39, has 3 little kids and lives in Miami) and quickly resumed her TV career, getting better and better. I could never stand other TV court shows, and now it's the only thing on TV I am regularly taping! Great entertainment, great intellectual stimulant, best hour on TV, eye opener, occasional shocker, not to be missed!!! Watch this passionate, beautiful Cuban genius in action and you'll see why other TV judges are mummies! 10 out of 10! Will also teach you how to talk back and argue your point at a business meeting, a small court case, a bout with your landlord or anywhere else, where viewpoints do not converge...
