Night Court the Complete 4th Season on DVD

I was a big Night Court fan during its original run and I have tried watching it in re-runs since its run ended. The problem is that Night Court just doesn’t seem to get the re-run love it deserves. It was a great show with a great ensemble cast, but for some reason it doesn’t seem to appeal to the mainstream retro TV watching audience. Well my itch for Harry and friend got scratched when WB started releasing the series on DVD. Season 1-3 sailed into stores and into my DVD player and I waited patiently for season 4. I kept checking Amazon and my local retailers, but could find not trace of it. Then last week I open up the Warner Archive and what do I see…

Night Court Season 4

Laughter’s in session as Criminal Court, Part II, State of New York dispenses justice and comedy in an uproarious Season 4 that adds opinionated bailiff Roz Russell (Marsha Warfield) to the oddball Night Court ensemble. You are hereby sentenced to 22 Hilarious Episodes on 4 Discs as wacky mcnacky Judge Stone (Harry Anderson) is seemingly bounced from the bench, randy-and-ready Dan (John Larroquette, in his third of four Emmy®-winning seasons for Outstanding Supporting Actor in comedy) is loved into a coma, public defender Christine (Markie Post) ends up wielding the gavel, Bull (Richard Moll) pens a controversial children’s book and court clerk Mac (Charles Robinson) goes into…labor? This is comedy that delivers.

Yes! Night Court is back and is being made available exclusively exclusively on DVD at WarnerArchive.com. So if you like to laugh (and who doesn’t) and you need a break from watching horror movies and TV this October (which I did). Pick up a copy of Night Court the Complete 4th Season on DVD.

Night Court the Complete 3rd Season on DVD

Night Court Season 3 DVD

As most Night Court fans will tell you, Season 3 is when the show really begins to hit its stride. It sure is sad that Selma Diamond passed away, but her replacement Florence Halop does a great job. As a fan you might remember that this is the season that introduces Christine, who in my opinion was a much better character then her predecessor Billy. What else starts here? Dan starts to take on dimensions, John Astin starts showing up regularly as Harry’s “crazy” father/stepfather and we get to meet Mac’s wife, Quan Le.

Here is the official release synopsis:

This season, life in Judge Harry Stone’s court starts with a tear (as the gang says farewell to Selma) and a horselaugh (as they welcome wiseacre Flo to the municipal menagerie). And it’s all fun from there in 22 absurdly hilarious episodes as Harry and his staff (including another newcomer, Legal Aid attorney Christine Sullivan) contend with New York’s zaniest nuts and dolts: the usual winos, weirdos, hookers and con artists, plus an orangutan, a rock star, a man from Saturn and a gorgeous witch who has Harry under her spell. The 3-Disc Set of Season 3 ends on a dark and stormy night, when four expectant moms fulfill their expectations with the panic-stricken assistance of the whole Night Court crew. Lullaby and good Night Court!

This is great classic television. I like it so much that I am having a Contest Giveaway of this season, so make sure you enter. If you don’t win, don’t fret. You can always pick up a copy of your very own on Amazon.

With Night Court, Laughter was in session…for 3 years

The adventures of Harry Stone and his gang was for me, an unexpected hit. The first 3 seasons were filled with comedy gold. New York + Crazy Criminals = awesome. The shows possibilities seemed limitless until they fell into the sitcom rut of romance and “special” episodes. Not everyone sitcom needs to make you cry, they can be zany throughout their entire run.
