The Judge Judy Thread

Post by asthmatic camel »

Mrs. Camel is addicted, I am not. To the extent that I spend three or four hours a day cycling. In the dismal British Winter.

Stupid Americans suing one another over stupid things.

"She stole my lipstick!

"Officer Byrd, would you kindly escort this moron from the court?"

" Gladly, Ma'am."

This should probably be in the "What The Fuck Is Going on in 'Murica" thread but I decided it deserved a new one.

That's exactly the show!

It is fucking great sometimes. And all those people in the audience? They are paid to be there.

Judy flies in, films enough shows for months, in a couple of days, flies back to her mansion, and doesn't even count the money.

Officer Burt is awesome.

You Americans are lucky. We have Judge Rinder which is 642 levels of more shitter.

I have a very, very good idea, Doc.

You know, I'm qualified to act as an Idndependant Financial Advisor over here. I'm fucking good at it, too. BUT, and it's a BIG BUT, I'd have to deal with cretins who haven't the faintest idea about how the stock markets work, the relative risks of buying rental properties, when and when not to buy gold, etc.

I could make a mint but it's too much fucking trouble.

We used to have a TV series, Crown Court years ago, that was a better format than these modern 'judges' programs.
It was fiction, written by scriptwriters, and the defendants, lawyers and judges were all played by actors - but the jury was twelve real members of the public. The show used to run over a few days - I forget how many - with each complete trial usually completed within a week.

The script was written so that on Mondays you thought the defendant was guilty, Tuesdays you thought they were innocent, and by Wednesday you were never sure...

I suppose if they bought the format back now, they could still have the jury, but you could also have an on-line vote of guilty or innocent, to see whether the public at home agreed with the jury's decision.

FACTuals.

"Crown Court" was set in the fictional Town of Fulchester. As are all the stories in Viz magazine. No coincidence.

OI. Crown Court. Used to be on after ITN News at One and The Sullivans. Far more interesting than Pebble Mill or kipper tied twats on BBC2s Open University. I still remember one storyline vividly where a roadie had chucked an over enthusiastic groupie off a stage and she landed face first on a set of stage lights and blinded her.

Guys. Kids are watching this.

Thems were happy viewings though, those days when you had fooled Mam after pulling a sickie and got a few days off school. Pointless viewing on school holidays, mind.

During the war, I particularly rememb

It would also be hosted by a legal expert such as Rylan Neal-Clark.

I think I may have seen bits of this show a long time ago, back when I lived in America. Apparently it ran for 25 years. Nothing recently.

Out of curiosity I googled her and found this:

https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radi ... -streaming
One of the enduring mysteries of the last few decades is how Judy Sheindlin became the highest-paid woman on American television. Towards the end of Judge Judy’s 25-year run, Sheindlin was hauling in $47m a year (her estimated net worth is about $440m). Since the show only required her to work for 52 days a year, that meant she earned $900,000 just by showing up. And this was Judge Judy, for crying out loud. It was a televised small-claims court. It was, by its very nature, mundane and repetitious.

Judge Judy: ‘If you decide to stay too long at the party, your makeup begins to fade.’
Judge Judy: 'Are my feelings PC and kumbaya? No. They are realistic'
Read more
And now it is over. Earlier this year, Sheindlin made the decision to hang up her gavel. You might not have noticed, since Judge Judy has been airing in reruns since then, and every episode is absolutely identical to every other episode. But while you or I might take this downtime as an opportunity to kick back and enjoy our mountains of unimaginable wealth, Sheindlin has not. For she already has a new show on IMDb TV. It’s called Judy Justice. And if you liked Judge Judy then, oh boy, are your rock-bottom expectations about to be expertly filled.
The format wasn't even original. You had The People's Court before it, which was an identical show with a different judge.

For almost a million dollars per episode. Can't say I blame her. If it works, it works. Nobody has to watch this if they don't want to. And she made almost half a billion doing it.

What would be cool is if the penalty was death regardless of the crime. Then you could have a spin off called "Meet Justice". And merchandising ...

nonono We'll call it ... ""The Penalty Phase".... yeah, thats the ticket

You would open the show having the sentence reaffirmed

You'd need doleful music leading up to the execution then something chipper over the closing credits.

I like it. It could replace the Cuomo/Lemon crap on CNN.

Absolutely nothing to do with executions or Judge Judy, but it was next to the crown court thing, so I thought I would indulge you.

If I moved to the colony, I'd have to pay for all my meds, which I get here for nothing. I wouldn't be able to get insurance for pre-existing conditions and I'd be broke within a year. I'm staying here. (It's really quite beautiful where I live apart from the dismal weather.)

Stockport is the 8th wettest city in the UK.

And the weather is pretty crap too.

Try moving to Wales. It's a beautiful country but much, much damper than Stockport. You and I should pay a visit sometime.

Here's my ancestral home.

Indeed I can. My grandfather was a Welshman and spoke the language fluently. He taught me the basics when I was a boy but over the years most has been forgotten.

Ok. I have watched a few episodes of JJs new show and what is clear, sadly, is that she is losing her mental faculties in very slow motion.

It's not too noticeable to start with, but there are instances where she laughs maniacally for no particular reason to the obvious embarrassment of her Clerk, reporter and obvious Bert clone who isn't and on occasion harangues defendants/plaintiffs for too long over irrelevant minutiae.

It's becoming car crash tv for the wrong (?) reasons. She should stop before it becomes a wiki paragraph.
