Night Court – The Complete Third Season (1986 – 1987/Warner DVD)

Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Episodes: A-



Welcome back to Night Court, where honorable (and comical) Judge Harold T. "Harry" Stone presides with his court aids and serve up both justice and comedy. With the nightly court proceedings anything to everything can (and does) happen.  Along with his prosecutor the lecherous Dan Fielding, bailiffs, public defenders, clerk, they solve anything from legal problems to romantic interests.  It is a non-stop roller coaster of eccentric, often crazy lunatics and complainants that enter through the doors of justice... nothing like a bit of humor that can't help solve the cases.
This is a very comical series, filled with an incredible cast of characters.  Taking place in Manhattan court house they strive to find order (more often not) and to just get through the night without strangling one another.  The main cast of characters are an eccentric group of courtroom friends, with their witty comments, poking and making fun of their clients and their situations.  At times of crisis or trouble however they would pull together and still have heart warming moments.  I enjoyed the comical dialog and the antics between the characters.
If you are into comedy then this is a great series, set in a fictional, modern day city of the big apple they make fun of modern idiosyncrasies and stereotypes.  Any thing or themes can happen and appear in Night Court from a robbery to keeping the court room from flying apart.  There is no reason why laughter can't help lighten the situations.
