Very funny first season, we're all waiting for MORE!
on March 20, 2006
Night Court, the 80's sitcom classic finally arrives on DVD! Season one is a refreshing and very funny introduction to a cast of wacky characters that would soon become TV mainstays for a total of NINE seasons!!!
The first few episodes do exhibit a bit of overacting as the actors try to find their footing, but that isn't unusual for a sitcom or any TV series for that matter. Fortunately the cast and the writers "clicked" after only a few episodes which translates into a very funny first season! You'll find yourself laughing out loud during many of the episodes!
The first season consists of 13 episodes on two discs contained in a standard DVD case. The bonus features are; a short retrospective documentary and also commentary by the series creator.
The only complaint that I have is that Warner Bros. is taking WAY TOO LONG to release the other seasons. I'm also hoping for a few surprises and cool bonus features on future releases!
Season ONE is a fantastic bargain!
Where are the other seasons??????
I actually thought that Karen Austin did a fine job on this series and it's a shame that she was replaced in season TWO. I have never heard anyone discuss the reasons behind her departure and I wonder if it was her choice? It's very strange that her character is removed BEFORE the ending of the first season after a very substantial plot development between Lana and harry!
