Night Court: The Complete Eighth Season [3 Discs] [DVD]

Cardmember Offers



The roller-coaster romance between Judge Harry T. Stone (Harry Anderson) and public defender Christine Sullivan (Markie Post) would seem to have come to an end during season seven of Night Court, in which Christine not only married undercover cop Tony Guilliano (Ray Abruzzo), but also gave birth to Tony's baby. Philosophically, Harry launches season eight by taking up with a new series character, court reporter Margaret Turner (Mary Cadorette), and also goes out for a few dates with court stenographer Lisette Hocheiser (Joleen Lutz). In addition to Margaret and Lisette, another recurring character is added to the roster during this season: S. Marc Jordan as Jack Griffin, a blind, sarcastic newsstand operator. Elsewhere, Assistant DA Dan Fielding (John Larroquette) learns that Phil, the old wino who used to hang around the courthouse, was really a millionaire, and that when he died, Phil bequeathed Dan a charitable foundation; however, with the arrival of Phil's twin brother, Will (William Utay), Dan is left holding the proverbial bag -- and facing hard time in prison! And in his annual Night Court guest appearance, Mel Tormé is cast as an angel who shows Harry what the world would have been like had he never been born (hmmm...sounds familiar). The season ends with the marriage of Christine and Tony in tatters -- and Harry waiting in the wings, hoping to catch Christine on the rebound. ~ Hal Erickson
