Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: I loved Night Court, even though the theme song terrified me as a child.

I'm very serious.

I got over it, but... it was not easy.

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: coco ebert: If the funk bothers you, I can't imagine what Sanford and Son did to you. Probably sent you into shock. :P

Hah!

Sanford and Son had a *delightful* theme! :P

So did Barney Miller.

But Night Court? I always had to turn down the volume during the opening theme song.

I don't know how to explain it. I just respect it.


My sister had the same problem with the ending credits to Unsolved Mysteries.

Yes, we must all respect the venerable Theme Song. It is hallowed ground within pop culture.

That's because that show was straight up scary.

//good to know that more DVD's are on their way, season 1 isn't quite enough


Seasons 1-7 are available, if you know where to look.

Seasons 1-3 of Night Court were released widely, meaning they were in retail stores, Amazon, everywhere.

Seasons 4-7 have been burn on demand, internet exclusives mostly available through WB's website, although seasons 4-6 are also currently available on Amazon. Season 7 is still a Warner Archives exclusive.

There are only two seasons left unreleased.

The recovery process was difficult... but I managed.

I came out alright, man. I AM (arguably) OKAY! :D


coco ebert: Yes, we must all respect the venerable Theme Song. It is hallowed ground within pop culture.


I mourn the art of the Theme Song as it is now.

Always a hurry, hurry, hurry with new shows, no time for a theme song.

Heaven help us all when/if Psych abandons theirs.


RedPhoenix122: My sister had the same problem with the ending credits to Unsolved Mysteries.


That was creepy, aye... so was the opening to Tales from the Darkside.

But neither one - nay, NOTHING - affected me like the Night Court theme song.

Everyone is due one ridiculous fear. That was mine.


angrymacface: So you could say... you're feeling MUCH better now...?


*thinks for a long time on this*

Reasonably.

Actually, USA has been keeping the theme song tradition alive. Psych, Monk, Suits...

In fact, Cable is where the theme songs migrated to, along with quality dramas. Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, the USA shows... they all have recognizable theme songs.

Pretty much, aye.

Although I hate it that Leverage abandoned theirs, along with that whole "The rich and powerful take what they want; we steal it back for you" spiel.

Cargo: coco ebert: NeoCortex42: Zombie DJ: "Reinhold? Ha-Ha. What kind of dumb name is that?"

[www.trbimg.com image 260x290]
There's nothing wrong with that name.

I just saw John Larroquette do a guest role in some show and damn, he's still really good. He should be in more shiat.

Did you know that he was the prologue voice over in the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre"?


There was an episode of Night Court where he was watching television, and you heard the prologue and he said, "Eh, I've seen this already."

Also, I absolutely loved him in "The John Larroquette Show." Then again, I'm a big fan of finding humor in dark places.

He was also in an episode of House. Definitely one of the top 5 House episodes. If you haven't seen it, you owe it to yourself to try to find it just for the ending.

I was picturing Harry saying that right after reading the headline.

Appropriate tag subby, 63 is far too young (these days - it was really good a couple hundred years ago...).


No. We definitely don't live longer than before. Life extension is bad. Species extension to the stars, that's good.

When I was a fan of Night Court in the 1980s, it was like my hobby was finding Larroquette's pre-Night Court roles. He had a couple of lines as an unmasked Klansman in the Twilight Zone movie. Also, this is him. And, of course, Stripes.

Markie Post was harder to find, but A&E, before the network became all "Look at the freakshow" all the time, they often played a crappy movie late at night called "Massarati and the Brain." "Hoarders" marathons were a step up.

"Reinhold?"

I loved Night Court. It still remains one of the funniest shows in the history of TV, IMO. Not to mention Markie Post was dee-lish-ussssss....

Markie's predecessor was this gal:

But ya probably knew that. 

She recorded a lot of other stuff, too. And she worked with Joe Jackson.

He won the Emmy for best supporting actor with Dan 4 years in a row, and then next year removed himself from the ballot.

I'm not sure if it's post- Night Court, but I remember her in a TV movie based on Glitz by Elmore Leonard. I think Jimmy Smits was in it too, but not 100%.

What a great show. I was about 11 when it first came on the air. Selma Diamond was so great til she kicked off too soon.

I loved all the episodes where Dan would take advantage of Phil the homeless guy. The Wheeler Family was always fantastic. The Mel Tourme and Jon Astin episodes were always a treat. And yes, Markie Post was mighty important to my development. Wow.

My favorite episode might have been where Teri Hatcher played Dan's boss' nympho daughter. She spent the whole episode trying to seduce Dan and Dan couldn't give in because his boss would have him killed. When he took the fire hose into a closet to hose hinself down as they were pumping high pressure air through the system searching for leaks was one of the funniest things I ever saw on that show.
