Storyline

Judge Harold T. Stone presides over "Night Court", a court which deals with petty crimes which can be dealt with in a dime-a-dozen manner. Invariably, the cases appearing before the court are bizarre, but that's ok because Judge Stone is not your regular judge. He's assisted by a motley crew of clerks and District Attorneys who often create as much chaos as the criminals they bring in for trial. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Trivia

There's a scene where Dan Fielding (John Larroquette) is trapped in a motel room with a psychotic woman who acts out movie roles. While watching television, an announcer says, "We'll return to 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre'", to which Larroquette says, "Seen that already." Larroquette was the voice of the Narrator in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) and the 2003 remake. See more »

Goofs

Dan Fielding's sexual innuendo and unwanted advances, while amusing, would be regarded as being sexual harassment. It would have cost him his job or at the very least forced his removal from the "Night Court" work lineup. See more »

Dan Fielding is my hero!!!
2 April 2000 | by coverme6See all my reviews

"Night Court", one of the best sitcoms to ever come out of the '80s, is back in the air in the A&E channel. The wacky crew of the Night Court can always make me laugh out loud ever afternoon after a long, tiresome day of high school. The whole cast is terrific, especially by Harry Anderson (Harry), Marsha Warfield (Roz), and Richard Moll (Bull), but I say the guy who really brings down the house with his sleazy and smart-assed attitude is John Larroquette, or better known as Dan Fielding in the show. It's hilarious to think that he is so horny all the time, that most women would degrade him as something lower than dogs***! But some don't notice how Dan is a good, caring person at heart. You don't know what I mean, you say? Watch "Night Court" at the A&E station
