The unapologetic optimist judge Abby Stone (Rauch), the daughter of the late Harry Stone, follows in her father’s footsteps as she presides over the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court and tries to bring order to its crew of oddballs and cynics, most notably former night court prosecutor Dan Fielding (Larroquette).
Personally I am looking forward to it simply because I have always enjoyed John Larroquette in any role he’s appeared in.
Yes. John Larroquette make me want to see it. Harry Anderson was never really made the show great, it was John Larroquette and the other characters. Maybe Harry was a little like Seinfeld when it was good, pretty much the likeable straight-man.
Saw a review of the show today. Most of it was about John Larroquette but it had this tantalizing note.
Interestingly, the best lines are given to the “non-stop freak show” called into court. Those misfits (public urination also brings out a mascot) afford the comedy’s producers an opportunity to pack the house with recognizable faces.
One turns up in the third episode but the appearance is more than just a cameo. This “Night Court” rewards viewers who were part of the old one.
A recognizable face who is more than just a cameo and rewards viewers of the old series? We’ve already heard that neither Bull nor Roz has agreed to appear yet. Could it possibly be a return of Bob Wheeler? John Astin is 92 - could Buddy return to say hello to his granddaughter? Phil/Will?
