I love Judge Judy because she's always funny and completely wise. I've watched her show for years and what I appreciate the most about her is her consistency. She treats everyone the same and doesn't put up with any garbage. I was just watching Judge Judy the other day and some lady was suing her ex-boyfriend and she tried to bring up an affair and Judge Judy said, "you want to talk about that, go somewhere else, but not here." And I think that statement really embodies what her show is about. Another reason why I enjoy Judge Judy is because she is very fair and compassionate. She doesn't come to the bench spitting ricochets. Nope. It's only after her litigants either try to lie or show their complete foolishness does she get angry. The best words to describe Judge Judy and her show are: common sense. That's her show in a nutshell because she follows the laws of the land, but she also has basic common sense, which apparently some of her litigants neglect. Judge Judy also created the entire sub-genre of arbitration TV because her show is handled much more like a binding arbitrator in that she does not bang gavels and there is less reflection on money and more reflection on people and circumstances. It's no coincidence that nearly every single other court show on American TV is patterned after and adjudicated in the same method as Judge Judy's series because she set the standard.
is great as well. The first case - a very tame one where a teenaged girl gets stood up by a date on prom night and wants reimbursement for the money she laid out for the dress - is a rather quiet preface to what's ahead.
A slimy dog breeder who sells mixed breeds while trying to pass them for pedigrees; and 18 year old bully who
has supposedly changed his ways now, but got stabbed in the heart and almost died while beating up a bystander who told him he was a wimp; a guy who walked a young mother home one night and got beat up by her boyfriend (check out how BRAIN DEAD the girl is...and Judy says "You're having a brain trauma!" Then later when Judy asks who her child lives with now, she can't even answer the question!!) Judy really socks it to the litigants, taking them fully to task and calling their trashy behavior for what it really is.
Amidst the rather routine cases, there are a couple interesting other ones - the one where a lady who just bought a new house (in Alabama or someplace hee-haw) walked in on a construction worker having sex with a lonely hooker. Even Judy's bailiff, Officer Byrd, gets in on the action here - after the construction worker relays his LAME recount of the incident, Judy asks Byrd what he thinks. Byrd: "I thought he was gonna make somethin' up!" Funny stuff. Another thought-provoking one is two 19 year old girls from cow-town Wisconsin, one of whom got beat up by a pack of lowlife girls at a gas station! She tries to blame it on the other girl, saying that it was a pre-arranged attack.
The granddaddy case of the DVD, and surely one of the best to air on Judge Judy, is Davenport vs. Filkins.Read more ›
