    More Kate Micucci is always a major plus, no matter the role!

    It just occurred to me (invoking an old Night Court catchphrase in reference to my father's recent 3 1/2 day hospital stay) that (at least so far as I can recall) nobody has yet invoked it in the current Night Court:
    "I feel MUCH better now!"

    John Astin is still alive, so in Night Court canon Buddy is still alive unless I missed a episode where they' mentioned he died.

    That would be great if he would be willing to appear. Here's hoping!

    Let's see: John Astin alive. Richard Moll deceased. Anybody else use that catch phrase on NC: TOS?

    Buddy, of course, would also be Abby's grandfather, making an appearance quite natural.

    I found last week's musical/funeral episode with Richard Kind mediocre, though Gurgs's subplot was the best part; Lacretta has a good singing voice.

    There are a lot of strong voices in the cast -- maybe they should do a whole musical episode.

    Liked last night's episode, with the sensitivity training backfiring spectacularly, and Abby and the HR representative doing things they probably should have had stunt doubles doing.

    Do we think the HR guy will be back?

    I'd be shocked if he didn't return.

    Wyatt is fitting in very nicely and I quite enjoyed his little feud with Dan. As one of the few people who actually liked Neil, even I think it's already clear Wyatt works better with these characters than Neil ever did.

    Just kidding.-- i know we got someone who won't comment on this episode for a week ;)

    It really is sad we won't ever see Richard Moll. It would have been amazing

    If John Asttin would be willing -- it'd be awesome.

    ANy chance he could bring Sean Astin as well?

    COunt me in too as saying without a doubt. He kinda has the personality of Abby's ex-fiance. And plenty of other situations they can bring him in.

    Neill was kind of a one-note character --- a "loser" that they never really addressed. Being a child of an Asian immigrant parent -- i can totally see that being the theme of an episode --disappointing your parents.they will have him fit in wherever they can't with anyone else (so DJ and male stripper this episode). LOved his DJ rendition of the court flow of cases.

    Wyatt, on the other hand, has had so many jobs (and friends with connections0 that

    I really do like how they are switching up interactions every episode so everyone has an episode with another cast mate. That builds them as a workplace family (don't tell the HR guy!)

    This was one of the best episodes. The barber shop quartet was wonderful. Dan is a genius.

    Olivia is still my favorite. I don't even think the actress changed at all. They just figured out how to write for her.

    Excellent way to put it.

    For me, Olivia in the first season felt like one of those SNL sketches where the comedian is trying to hard.

    I think you're right that the writing for her has been better...but i also think directors are better using her.

    Thank you! -- In the way Dan meant it at the very end of the episode --and not the Dan Fielding way in 99% of the episode!

    Night Court of the 2020's is the first sitcom i have watched regularly for over 30 years, and one of the few i am watching first run (as opposed to all the syndicated reruns when i was a kid.

    "Sarcastic in C." I HAVE to remember that.

    MOAR Flobert!!! That guy is a riot.

    I wanna say the OS did something similar, where everybody was mad at everybody.

    And +10000000 on John Astin, if he's able.

    My only problem is the rapid-fire delivery and my tires old hearing problems. I miss a LOT of the dialog. I'm resisting turning on the CC out of stubbornness, but I may have to soon.

    Heh. I recently had the same thought. Maybe Abby has a long lost uncle, who spent the last twenty years in a coma. But he's much better now.

    Don't resist. I already turn it on for DSC, SNW, LD, and PIC at the first sign of not catching dialogue, and I've done it several times for Night Court:TNG.
