coffee fiend: God, I loved that show. In the episode where the woman goes into labor in the courtroom, Bull's line, "Don't worry, sir; we're professional bailiffs!" literally had me falling out of my chair laughing. Also, I think the first time I ever saw the scrumptious Ms. Sela Ward was on NC when she played a friend of Christine's. Thank you, Mr. Weege; may you R.I.P.


Yeah, that was the same episode from the pic I posted above. I didn't know that was Sela Ward though. I just knew her as the hot brunette friend that Christine was trying to upstage...

The other great memory of the episode.

Oh, sweet Jesus, that's awesome.

It's kind of a shame Spiner ended up getting somewhat typecast after TNG, but you take what comes I guess.


Yeah, Night Court stands as a testament that Brent Spiner has a LOT of comedic talent that TNG really never touched after that (well, his role in Independence Day was semi-comedic, playing the scientist typecast for some laughs). Real shame he got typecast, but I'm sure that between residuals, movie money, autographs, and any convention appearances he's doing just fine.

Night Court was one of my favorite shows as a kid. I'd watch reruns of it regularly, and try to catch the new episodes at night. It's one of the very few shows I still buy the DVD's of as new seasons come out.

The show Jumped The Shark with the whole "Phil Foundation" plotline and Dan Fielding becoming a Phantom of the Opera figure briefly though.

I remember the three-parter that established Dan was actually a JAG Officer in the US Army Reserves, when he showed up to court in his Class A's and asked for time off. Years later, after having joined the Army, I saw that episode again, having hazy memories of it from when I was a kid. It made no sense why a reservist JAG would be called to active duty to help a hot Major from Special Forces scout out a site for a listening post in South America (Big Problem: no females in Special Forces, especially a Major, especially in the 1980's, and she was way out of uniform with her makeup and hair in that episode). . .and he ends up reassigned to helping give physical exams north of the Arctic Circle. . .again, a very bizarre assignment for a JAG. Then again, it seemed really odd that nobody except the SF officer had any weapon qualification badges on their uniforms. Unless things were way different in the '80's, JAG's still have to qualify with a rifle or pistol (everybody does, except Chaplains, who are expressly prohibited from doing so).

I've got mixed feelings about whether or not Christine getting married to a DEA agent, having a kid, then getting a divorce was jumping the shark, or just character growth as the one-note goodie-two-shoes (but very hot) character became more realistic. They hammered it in so often that Christine and Harry had feelings for each other they couldn't pursue because of professional reasons that it felt shoehorned in for her to suddenly go for another guy (then again, I said the same thing on Battlestar Galactica when Starbuck married Sam Anders instead of Apollo).

My wife has always said that Bull was her first TV crush as a little girl. You didn't see Richard Moll much after Night Court. He had a guest spot on Babylon 5 as an underworld thug in the second season, that was all I really remember.

IMDB shows he's been busy, but I can't remember seeing him anywhere in a while. Now hearing him is something else; he's done more than a little voice acting since then. I remember when I realized that he was the voice of Harvey Dent/Two Face on Batman TAS.

Speaking of Bull and pregnant women, I have just two words for you:

"Mucus Plug!"

No love for Billie? She was also the female singer in Paradise By The Dashboard Lights (and a fellow St. Louisan)

OtherLittleGuy: I remember an episode where Hurricane Mel(!) hit NYC, and I rolled my eyes at that as sitcom silliness that 1) hurricanes don't come close to Manhattan and 2) they'll never get all the way to the "M"s in any given year.


Hurricane Marilyn would like a talk with you.

MFAWG

Was she (Ellen Foley) in Rocky Horror as well?

Not according to IMDB.

Ellen's got a great set of pipes, though. Well... she would have to be pretty damn good to work with Joe Jackson.
