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...).

I farking loved Night Court. One of the few shows I can honestly say I spent more time laughing while watching, than just sitting there watching.

I'm glad Warner Archives is getting the rest of the seasons out in a decent timeframe.

It was a pretty damn funny show.

And, Weege was involved in Barney Miller, too.

Things was, that was a live studio audience rather than canned laughter. There was this one laugh that I kept on hearing. It sounded like John Astin who played Buddy Ryan. You can hear it every other episode. I am guessing it was one of the writers or directors but it was such a distinct laugh.

I guess that depends on what kind of syndication and movie deals he got from TNG.

Perhaps he doesn't do much TV work by choice instead of because he was typecast.

Night Court had some great recurring characters on it. The Wheelers are a couple of the best. Personally, I always loved whenever John Astin showed up. Then there was Dan's homeless lackey for the first couple seasons.

Yeah, and The Practice is the one show out of that trilogy of David E. Kelley shows (Ally McBeal, The Practice, Boston Legal) that isn't on DVD, so to the tubes you go.

Sorry for a slight threadjack but on youtube there used to be these videos of Mario & Luigi that were from these educational videos. They would be talking and all of a sudden, the frame would freeze and Mario or Luigi (whoever was featured in the video) would then slowly mutate into this ghastly, ghoulish, horrible face. They were incredibly creepy but very funny.

Does anyone know where these videos might now be? I've looked for the last six months at least and cannot track them down anywhere.

Any help would be appreciated.

On the other hand, put him in makeup and uncredited, and he rocks the screen. (ID4, Dude, Where's My Car?)

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.

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.

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.

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?"

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


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

peasandcarrots: 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.


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.

I'm up to date on Burn Notice. The plot hasn't really change that much, even this season. They always a have their job of the week to do, along with minimal advancement of the master plot. Thankfully, the master plot finally ran out of "the bigger bad guy behind the bad guy", but it's still the same basic show.

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.

Ahem..

"We ate the Necco wafers."
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.

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.


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.

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.

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.
