YouTube Monday - Night Court - Vow of Silence



It is dated, and it is corny, but Night Court was brilliant situation comedy.  It probably stayed on the air a little too long after the ideas started to run thin, but then we hated to see it go.  I always remember how Harry Stone became a judge, he was the only person to answer the phone as the time limit for the governor to appoint a judge was running out.  Sometimes it pays to stay home, listen to Mel Tormey and answer the phone.

  1. Never got into that show. I wasn't a huge fan of Harry Anderson. But the few times I saw it loved the sarcastic Selma Diamond.

  3. I enjoyed Night Court for a while. It’s interesting how dated it does seem now.

    I have never really payed attention to this. It may be time to do a deep dive into YouTube. I'm sure somebody uploaded some episodes.

  7. I know it was broadcast here, and I watched it at times, but I have little memory of it. That is not unusual.

    1. Less Australian TV makes it this way. One of our public broadcasting stations concentrates on BBC programs, and that station is starting to show some Australian TV. BBC America has gone from mostly BBC TV to mostly old movies that have a British actor in them. And Top Gear,
