Post really saved this show with her too perfect to be real figure while she followed the rigid restraints of a nun. Earlier there was Gayle Hunnicut, and then Paula Kelly and then Ellen Foley, and then they settled for Markie Post who played very nicely Christine Armstrong, the Defense attorney in this Night Court. In this comedic courtroom series, viewers will witness a variety of cases — from a plaintiff claiming that their best friend dated their ex-girlfriend to a roommate who refuses to wear deodorant. They complimented each other very well without stealing each other's scenes. Also along midway through were Charles Robinson as Mac, Florence Hallop, who died shortly after joining the show, and she was replacing Selma Diamond who also passed away.
I think this could have been leagues better if they had given Larroquette's character some better material to work with, or maybe just hired writers who knew the least bit about comedy. But you also have Harry Anderson's Judge Harold T. John Larroquette was her perfect nemesis as the lecherous but snobbish Dan Fielding and Harry Anderson as the judge with a Peter Pan complex. There are a series of other crazy characters. Each case will be will judged, defended, and prosecuted with the perfect combination of comedy and justice, as the laws of manhood will be upheld every week. There was Karen Austin, Ellen Foley for a season, than a series of several replacement actresses for a few weeks before Markie Post finally grounded herself as the main female character.
But some don't notice how Dan is a good, caring person at heart. The shows tend to run together but the scripts are watertight and the characters are some of the best created in the history of sitcoms. Roz was excellent in the role as this time she was smarter and a bit stronger than the dovish Bull. Show Details In this comedic courtroom series, viewers will witness a variety of cases — from a plaintiff claiming that their best friend dated their ex-girlfriend to a roommate who refuses to wear deodorant. He won 4 Emmys for his portrayal more then anyone else currently in T. I'd have to say they may have set a record for most cast changes for a sitcom as there were at least 4! Cheers was a fair show but it was slow. I'm sorry but if I knew Harold Stone in real life I would be tempted to punch him in the face.
In truth I feel bad for John Larroquette because he deserved so much better. Often times great, with great guest performances by the likes of Dick Butkus and Mel Torme, this was one of those Golden Oldie sitcoms that should be considered one of the patron saints of the medium. I admit in the later years the writing got a little less sharp, but it was still a classy show to the end. Many court records are available online. Richard Moll, Markie Post, and John Larroquette also made the show memorable. Each case will be will judged, defended, and prosecuted with the perfect combination of comedy and justice, as the laws of manhood will be upheld every week.
With great stories and lots of hilarity, the show ruled, and although it was adult in nature because of Larroquette's character, it did it in a classy way. Court records are available to the public. The first episode of Guy Court was broadcast in October, 2014. In it's early days the sexual exploits of Dan Fielding and some other perverse jokes made the show a bit controversial. I will admit there was not that one episode that stuck out but all of the shows were great, especially earlier on. In fact he used to be a magician.
The setting was the night shift of a Manhattan court, presided over by the young, unorthodox Judge Harold T. There were episodes where he alone made the show a gas. They were not afraid to be bizarre, as the writers would give us scenes such as Wild E Coyote appearing before Judge Stone for chasing the Road Runner. Court documents contain valuable information on a range of legal issues, including felony and misdemeanor cases, traffic accident reports, tax court records, and more. Here's to Bull, Judge Stone, Roz, Dan, Christine, Selma, Florence and the rest of those small character parts like Art the Janitor, Quan Li, Mac's wife, Phil, Dan's lackey and the endless array of prostitutes, criminals and other low lives that went through the courthouse. Judicial courts are created by the government and enforce the law by hearing civil and criminal matters. My other two favorites were Bull Shannon and Dan Fielding.
All of you were funny then, you are funny in reruns now and you will be funny in reruns in the future. The cast would also face believable moral dilemmas, that alot of today's sitcom's do not dare attempt, or pull off as successfully. The writing was better the characters were great and it was just much funnier. In his court was my all time fave sitcom actor John Larroquette, as smutty Dan Fielding, a womanizing, outspoken district attorney. This show is very underrated. But I still remember it.
He was funny but added little to the show. The cast stayed together until 1992 and it gelled beautifully. John Larroquette won four Emmy's for this part and for the 1988-89 season he declined to be nominated. The rest of the cast was excellent as well. . The whole cast is terrific, especially by Harry Anderson Harry , Marsha Warfield Roz , and Richard Moll Bull , but I say the guy who really brings down the house with his sleazy and smart-assed attitude is John Larroquette, or better known as Dan Fielding in the show. Harry Anderson gave perhaps the best role of his career as the manic Judge Harry, and was absolutely wonderful.
