Could Have Been Much Better
on September 17, 2007
I'm a huge fan of Judge Judy and have seen almost every case over the past few years. Many seem to find the show's biggest attraction in how Judge Scheindlin humiliates the litigants, so the choice of cases and participants is critical in determining how entertaining the show will be. I find the litigants' psychoses and desperate self-justification even funnier than Judy's acerbic comments. Unfortunately, I could easily remember quite a few cases more interesting than those on this DVD. The only really great one here is the young woman who, failing to get out of a speeding ticket, wrote a complaint against the LAPD officer who stopped her. You can really get a more enjoyable serving of Judge Judy on YouTube, although with the release of this DVD, perhaps the show's producers will soon have those on YouTube removed. I'm hoping that this is a mere trial to see whether there's enough of a market to produce more JJ collections on DVD. Even though it's a bit of a disappointment, it's still enjoyable for JJ fans and pretty inexpensive, so I'll give it four stars.
