S01.E12: Lockdown 2015.01.15

 

Everyone is on lockdown in the courthouse due to a police emergency outside. An innocent game to pass the time leads to a major revelation about Rebecca - she hasn't cried in over 10 years. Meanwhile, Tedward is extremely hungry and discovers someone has stolen granola bars from his earthquake kit.

For the most part I generally dislike sitcoms. I always have and rarely find myself laughing out loud.  But I also end up watching some of them because a twenty minute time block of mindless nonsense is just fine for the soul.  Or something.

 

But while I sort of understand why certain ones like Modern Family, or Cougar Town get all sorts of love, I do not understand the absolute hatred people have for Bad Judge.  I actually find it rather amusing.  It is completely outside the bounds of any reality-based plot line. It is quite ridiculous.  But the characters amuse me. I enjoy the fact that the characters/actors like and enjoy each other.  And when I occasionally check in on shows like The McCarthy's (sic?), where the  characters and acting are so much more ludicrous, vaudevillian and cliché-ridden, I appreciate shows like Bad Judge all the more.

 

Perhaps this makes me unsophisticated, humour-wise, but I am not ashamed to go against the grain and say that I am  sorry that this show has been given the axe.  It is not one I would get emotionally invested in, but in comparison to a number of sitcoms I have watched one or two episodes of and then bailed in disgust, it stands above for me.

Preach @Clockwork! 

 

This is one of the few silly sitcoms that my husband and I both chuckle at at least once or twice and this episode was no different.  Tedward is just amusing, Judy went a completely different way than I ever pictured, as did Judge Hernandez.  

 

Plus Dick Casablancas people!!  My VMars love gives a lot of shows a lot of leeway.

So what is the deal with this show, has it been cancelled and are they just burning off episodes or what? This episode I found super boring. Does a huge municipal building not have a back door so that they can evacuate people without the risk of them getting shot?

I'm with you Clockwork and Gik! I love this show. It is somewhat Night Courtesque and maybe that's why I like it so much. I liked the secrets and while anyone could have predicted that the obvious secrets wouldn't belong to the obvious candidates, I do like the fun of who they were attached to. I'm sad that it has been cancelled. NBC let them do their 13 episodes which they are now burning off.

Add me to the unofficial we will miss you Bad Judge thread. While nobody brought an act with them to the show like Harry Anderson it did have a cute quality that Night Court had
