Night Court

Out of the blue, in 1984, the absurdist comedy television show Night Court premiered.  I was an immediate fan.  It ran from 1984 to 1992.

As a semi-professional magician (in my youth), I really appreciated the casting of comic magician Harry Anderson as Judge Harold T. Stone.  I met him at a friend’s funeral.  He is a true gentleman – and very tall.  And I grew to love John Larroquette as that horn-dog D. A. Dan Fielding.  He, too is tall.  And won FOUR Emmys in the role!

It’s coincidental I was preparing a post about Night Court when I found out the show’s creator and chief writer, Reinhold Weege, passed away December 1 at age 62.

You should go to the link below and read more about he and the show.  The 80s were not that long ago, were they?

  1. The ’80s were … just last year, right? Doesn’t seem that long ago.
