Product Description

Judge Harry T. Stone presides over the New York City night court. The cases that come before Judge Stone are always a little bit silly, but it's up for debate whether his motley crew of staff or the criminals for whom he dispenses justice are more bizarre. Enjoy the chaos that made this hilarious 80s sitcom one of the top shows of its time.

Amazon.com

This "Television Favorites" compilation offers a sampling of Night Court, one of the zaniest and bawdiest shows to hit network primetime in the 1980s. In the pilot, we meet the Mel Tormé-loving, joke-playing, too-young judge Harry Stone (Harry Anderson) presiding over the night beat of New York. Joining him are lecherous assistant district attorney Dan (John Larroquette), bald Bunyanesque bailiff Bull (Richard Moll), and uptight court clerk Lana (Karen Austin). The other five episodes are all from later seasons (4-6) when the series was at its peak. The cast solidified with court clerk Mac (Charles Robinson), sexy public defender Christine (Markie Post), and dry-as-a-martini-wit bailiff Roz (Marsha Warfield). In "Her Honor," Harry is removed from the bench and replaced by Christine, leading to the memorable image of him riding roller skates wearing a jet pack. Unfortunately, the two episodes included here ended season 4, but not included are the two episodes that opened season 5 and finished the story line. Bull is struck by lightning in "Death of a Bailiff," Dan is tempted by a young Teri Hatcher in "Who Was That Mashed Man?" (both from season 5), and a disaster threatens both the courtroom and Dan's political campaign in "Fire" (season 6).

While most of Warner's "Television Favorites" releases have been single-disc samplers to gauge the market for a full-season release, Night Court is different because the complete first season was previously released on DVD (the pilot is on both releases, but with a commentary track only on the full-season release). Presumably, slow sales on the initial DVD set prompted this release as a test case for the viability of future seasons. It's a bit like apples and oranges, however, as the later seasons were much better than the first. Fans want those seasons in full, of course. Unfortunately, if they decide to boycott the Television Favorites disc on principle, the slow sales might mean the last eight seasons of Night Court will never make it to DVD at all. --David Horiuchi

Night Court is a very funny show, and I will not stand to see a classic go down the drain! A BEST OF dvd should not be the answer for bad sales on Season 1! Everyone knows that the better, more memorable episodes occured after the first season. Why couldn't Warner Bros just come out with Season 2, and consider what they should do from those sales? I'm sure all Night Court fans are as disgusted as I am to see such horrible treatment being done to such a classic. Anyone who feels the same should give a 1 star for this dvd with a review explaination that we want a SEASON 2 DVD set!!!!! Believe me, I am not going to spend my own money on such an unappropriate bestof dvd.

Warner Bros. You are a joke if you think that you can offer us this lame (TV Favorites Compiation) and expect us long suffering Night Court Fans from around the world to jump for JOY.

You have know idea how long we have been waiting for Night Court to come out on DVD and to have Season One released was magic.

But to offer us this Compilation instead of Season Two is an Insult to all the Night Court fans worldwide, did the Warner Bros. Executive that picked these so called favorites actually see all 193 Episodes, because in my opinion these aren't the best ones I would have picked.

Season One was a little slow but with the entry of Christine to the show it gave show more life and Dan's character became more enjoyable with every episode.

So like a good Red Wine this Show only gets better with time.

So I urge all Night Court Fans all over the world to give this Compilation a miss and I Pray that Warner Bros. have a Heart and give us all the other Seasons in Uncut Format.

This disc represents a scary and disturbing possibility: That Warner Bros. is brushing off releasing the rest of the seasons of "Night Court" in favor of offering this poorly selected group of episodes as a kind of "peace offering." I've even heard that these are not even the original NBC broadcast versions, but rather the edited syndication versions. I've never known Warner to release anything other than uncut episodes of a TV show before. But, I know there is always that possibility, since other publishers have certainly done it already. The REALLY scary part of it is just this: If this disc performs poorly, it very well could be the final nail in the coffin of the hope of any more uncut season sets to be released. BUT, how can Warner Bros. realistically expect true fans of the show to buy such an inferior product as this? It's no secret that we are all craving the full season sets in uncut format. If Warner feels that the first season set did not sell enough copies, then here's a good idea: Get more copies of the set available at retailers! When the season one set first became available, I noticed that a lot of the stores around here did not even have it! Those that did soon sold out, but almost all of them never restocked it! It seems to me that since the first shipment sold well and quickly, more shipments should have followed. But the slots that had been occupied by "Night Court" were then filled by something else, and it never seemed to show up again. It's almost like it got lost in the shuffle of a continually changing store lineup of available titles. I sincerely believe that it would have done much better if given the chance.Read more ›

I bought Season 1 -- which admittedly was a so-so set of episodes -- and am eagerly waiting for Season 2 and beyond. I loved watching them when they first aired and rediscovered them on late-night TV (via the DVR). Now it's time for the rest of them to appear on DVD......

I grew up watching Night Court on TV in the 80's and early 90's and regarded it as one of my favorite comedy series along with MASH. I eagerly awaited the release of the series on DVD and when season 1 came out, I picked up a copy on the first day of release and anxiously awaited the second season. Over a year later and still nothing!! This favorites compilation is what I consider a slap in the face of every Night Court fan!! WBTV needs to get a clue and figure out what fans want. If they have a difficult time marketing one of the funniest and most successfully 80's TV comedies, then maybe their marketing department needs an overhaul. Don't penalize dedicated fans any longer and release the rest of the seasons NOW!!

I must whole heartedly AGREE with everyone else. Why would anyone waste hard earned money on this piece of garbage when if it "sells well" these so called favorite episodes are on the other DVD's. I would buy ALL seasons but absolutly not someone elses choice of favorites, obviously chosen by someone who is not a huge fan of the show!!

Buy yourselves a clue, WBTV. SOMEone connected with your company must be reading one-star review after one-star review of this product, by this point.

NO ONE. WANTS. THIS.

Season Two. NOW.

Why are you putting this on "Night Court"? No wonder you can't get any answers. BTW it's because Season 3 has never been released. Duh.
