    Default Night Court

    New series on NBC, a continuation of the old series. Sort of.

    Tonight's episode (3) featured a case with a defendant who was an overzealous D&D cosplayer.

    Hijinks ensued.

    The very next commercial break had the trailer for Honor Among Thieves.

    Anyway, I like the show so far.

    Oh wow, I have a lot of fond memories of this show. I'm almost afraid to check out the new one.
    Thanks to Linklele for my new avatar!
    If i had superpowers. I would go to conventions dressed as myself, and see if i got complimented on my authenticity.

    I like the new series, but I wish Bull was still doing it. Wonder why they didn't hire him.

    But glad Dan is back.

    Law enforcement typically has mandatory retirement ages due to inability to perform duties past certain ages (eg needing to tackle someone and physically restrain them). Bull's actor, Richard Moll, is 80.

    Bull is probably retired and not allowed to carry a badge anymore.

    Rumor is that he may make a guest appearance.

    They're court bailiffs, not police officers. Before Bull came on board there was Florence, (played by Florence Halop, 61 years young in the first season[61, jimminy pimminy, I just turned 62 in November). Let's see, Richard Moll just turned 80 on the 13th of the month. Happy Birthday. Don't know how active he is these days.

    I don't know why youre making a distinction here when I never said they were police officers. I said they were law enforcement officers. Which bailiffs (and sherrifs and police officers, all of whom work in courts, location and circumstances depending) are.

    I'm gonna have to check this out.

    I saw the very first episode of the original when it first aired. Yeah, I'm old.

    I tend to conflate my memory of the first show with Barney Miller, which had a similar feel.

    Pft, that doesn't mean youre old. Now, if you saw the very first episode of the original when it first aired at your retirement party, then sure.

    Yes but Barney Miller is somewhat of a serious show if I recall. They throw in some serious topics in the show. There's a few laughs and punchlines now and then on the show.
