Life in Judge Harry Stone's court starts with a tear (as the gang says farewell to Selma) and a horselaugh (as they welcome wiseacre Flo to the municipal menagerie). Harry and his staff contend with New York's zaniest nuts and dolts: the usual winos, weirdos, hookers and con artists, plus an orangutan, a rock star, a man from Saturn and a gorgeous witch who has Harry under her spell.

While watching this particular Night Court season, I started to cringe. Granted back in 1985 these might have been viewed as appropriate and may have even been laugh-worthy. However, this series has not aged well and is very politically incorrect by today’s standards.
As an example, in the episode “Halloween too” Harry the judge falls in love with a woman. Later on, he discovers that the woman in a witch as she was caught in a state of undress. The defense attorney demands that the judge drops his relationship with the witch, on the basis he could lose his position on the bench. In 2018 terms, a lot of people, especially in a very liberal city like New York City, would not have a problem at all with being a witch. We call them Wiccans, and they are as free to practice their faith as any other. Granted, being publically naked celebrating your faith is still looked down upon, but a judge and a Wiccan relationship are no longer taboo.
Another example, in the “Best of Friends” episode, the prosecuting attorney discovers that his male friend from years ago has become a woman. There are a lot of insensitive comments made against the transgendered person. Again, in this age where Bruce Jenner transformed into Caitlyn Jenner we hopefully no longer feel it is strange or ridiculous.
Lastly, in the episode “Dan’s boss,” they poke fun at a Little Person. Again, in today’s world of political correctness, this humor falls flat.
I am sure there are conservatives out there that might call me out for being a “precious Snowflake” for being easily offended. I do want to say that I don’t want it censored in any way. I want to warn others that may have more sensitive modern views that this particular season of this show can be of concern to those views.
