What is her appeal!
1 November 2009 | by SylSee all my reviews

I mean I don't get Judge Judy. Every time her show is on the air or she is on Larry King Live, I get annoyed by her superior attitude and her authoritative mannerisms. Maybe we live in sadistic society where we enjoy people getting lessons in etiquette, proper rules, and dealing with one another. Judge Judy would be the last that I would call. She's mean to most of the people who come into her courtroom. It's like they know what to expect. She did for courtroom shows what Oprah did for talk shows. Hopefully, many of these courtroom shows will fade away as the talk shows did. She's loud, whiny, opinionated, and annoying. That's only after one episode. She's got lots of opinions but where are her critics. I'm sure that because of realism and sadism's popularity in today's culture can allow the intolerance of a former family judge to let people air their dirty laundry in public for their fifteen minutes of fame. To me, Judge Judy isn't worth the time.
