Justice Served is Out of Order!

"I love watching "Judge Judy" and I have been waiting for a DVD for some time, unforunately, this is a disappointment. For one thing, I don't agree that these selections are the most interesting or outrageous cases Judge Judy has had. They would have been much better off issuing the original season, then just nine cases out all the years that "Judge Judy" has aired.
I give five stars to Judge Judge herself, but this DVD leaves a lot to be desired. People with a passing interest in the show may enjoy it, but it's not enough for fans."
Could Have Been Much Better

"I'm a huge fan of Judge Judy and have seen almost every case over the past few years. Many seem to find the show's biggest attraction in how Judge Scheindlin humiliates the litigants, so the choice of cases and participants is critical in determining how entertaining the show will be. I find the litigants' psychoses and desperate self-justification even funnier than Judy's acerbic comments. Unfortunately, I could easily remember quite a few cases more interesting than those on this DVD. The only really great one here is the young woman who, failing to get out of a speeding ticket, wrote a complaint against the LAPD officer who stopped her. You can really get a more enjoyable serving of Judge Judy on YouTube, although with the release of this DVD, perhaps the show's producers will soon have those on YouTube removed. I'm hoping that this is a mere trial to see whether there's enough of a market to produce more JJ collections on DVD. Even though it's a bit of a disappointment, it's still enjoyable for JJ fans and pretty inexpensive, so I'll give it four stars."
Good but Could be Better

"I absolutely love Judge Judy. I still remember watching the "60 Minutes" Episode from over 13 years ago and thinking what an interesting person she was (by the way, that interview - as well as the 1993 interview - is included in the DVD).
There are a total of 9 episodes, including one of my favorites - an Asian lady who had sued the LAPD officer who had given her a ticket. Her father was a retired LAPD officer and it seemed apparent she had tried to use her father's name in order to influence the cop not give her the ticket. Judge Judy made mincemeat out of her and her father.
The extras are of Judge Judy receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, some promos for the show, both "60 Minutes" interviews and clips of "Judyisms".
I wish a "Season 1" DVD set had been available instead. Or even a multi-DVD set. Also, it would have been nice to have had an interview with bailiff Petri Hawkins Byrd - or even some clips of him "talking" with unruly defendants.
All in all, I enjoyed the DVD but it would have been so much better with a multi-disc set."
Finally a Judge Judy DVD!

"This DVD has 9 cases plus extras. You get to see the episodes without the commercial breaks and the closing statements are different. Judge Judy says a little something before each episode. I am a huge fan and these 9 cases are not really the ones I would pick. The only exception is the lawyer/paralegal case which is one of my favorites. Not sure why the other cases were selected. The quality of the DVD is much better then watching the original episodes. The extras are nice too. This is a good start of what I hope is a regular DVD release. Why not have each season released in a box set?"
