|They all come out at night. That's when you'll meet the weirdos, wannabes, lecherous fiends, nutballs and strange-os - and those are just the people in charge of Criminal Court, Part II, State of New York.
"I like him. He's nuts," a defendant says about judge Harold T. Stone. Magician/comic Harry Anderson portrays Stone, a man with a joy-buzzer sense of courtroom decorum and a gleeful enthusiasm for velvet-voiced scat singer Mel Torme. John Larroquette and Richard Moll, who would team with Anderson through the show's 1984-1992 run of law and disorder, are among the cast of this 13-episode Debut Season presented on 2 discs with a Loaded Docket of Extras. Night Court: it's where they'll try anything!
Editor's NoteHarold Stone's (Harry Anderson) career as a NIGHT COURT judge formed the basis for this comedic show, which first brightened up television schedules in 1984. With a maverick style that produced surprisingly good results, Stone was often the bane of the courtroom's staff--while being a firm favorite of the various miscreants who passed before him. The rest of his staff added to the laughs, varying from bald-headed bailiff "Bull" (Richard Moll) to sleazy D.A. Dan Fielding (John Larroquette), and a host of other oddball characters. This release presents the first season of the show in its entirety.
