Married..with Children, Kate & Allie, Throb, and on Friday nights, if we didn't have plans, Night Court (1984-1992), an ensemble workplace sitcom set in a Night Court (where minor criminal cases are tried immediately after arrest).
It was the lowest of the low in the court system, staffed by people who were too weird or incompetent to get better assignments, which led to some strange-bedfellows type of buddy-bonding.
1. Young prankster judge, Harry Stone (former magician Harry Anderson).
2. Stick-in-the-mud prosecuting attorney Dan Fielding (John Larroquette), a sexist horndog who made innapropriate comments to every woman in the court. He was also the villain, when one was needed.
4. Gender-atypical court reporter Mac Robinson (Charles Robinson, left), who was married to naive Vietnamese immigrant Quon Le (Denice Kumagai).
5. Head bailiff Bull Shannon (Richard Moll, top photo), a hulking man-child.
6. The no-nonsense second bailiff, played by Selma Diamond, Florence Halop, and Marsha Warfield.
There were many appearances by famous guest stars like Lou Ferrigno, John Astin (as Harry's crazy father), Brent Spiner (Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation), Russian-immigrant comedian Yakov Smirnoff, and crooner Mel Torme.
