As usual, Judge Judy is at it again, calling people liars and the like. Many times I have watched her as she berates people standing before her saying that their demeanor is telling her they are lying. Hey many times I have thought to myself I would be acting that way also if I were in front of a courtroom of people, so I am guessing she would think I was lying also. This is Judge Judy, doing what she does--If you like to watch a Judge be a pompous ass, calling people names and treating them as second class citizens, just because they are appearing in her courtroom,then by all means this is the DVD for you!

"Allumination Filmworks bring Judge Judy back to DVD with "Second to None", a compilation of ten Judge Judy cases, running a total of around 120 minutes (although the back of the box states it's only 100 minutes).
The cases featured are:
* PATTERSON VS. JIMERSON - A 16-year-old girl (Patterson) sues a prom date that didn't show up (Jimerson) for the cost of doing her hair and buying a prom outfit
* REPSHER VS. ZILE - A woman (Repsher) sues the owner of a kennel (Zile) for misrepresenting a mixed-breed dog as a Yorkshire Terrier
* CASIMIR VS. RANDOLPH - A teenage boy (Casimir) sues for an unprovoked attack by a fellow youth (Randolph); he counters with the claim that the former boy's girlfriend subsequently stabbed him in the heart, nearly killing him
* BROWN VS. PRITCHETT - A twentysomething man (Brown) sues a 13-year-old girl (Pritchett), for whom he routinely purchased alcohol, for filing a false police report
* HACKETT VS. SCHELL - A man (Hackett) sues the on-again, off-again boyfriend - and admitted abuser (Schell) - of a woman whom he was walking home with, for an unprovoked physical attack
* GALLARZO VS. COSIO - The new girlfriend (Gallarzo) of an elementary school girl's father turns up at the elementary school graduation; girl's biological mother (Cosio) is not best pleased and mounts a verbal attack on the girlfriend.
* WATTS VS. SORROWS - Purchaser of a new home (Watts) is shocked when she [allegedly] finds an unknown man having sex in aforementioned home [Sorrows] on day they were due to move in
* OSMAN VS. BENJAMIN - Teenage drama gone serious: in a lengthy (26 mins) and complicated case, Osman claims defendant (Benjamin) allowed her to be "set-up" for a physical assault
* DAVENPORT VS. FILKINS - Possibly the disc's highlights. Judy vents as eBay seller (Filkins) attempts to con buyers (including Davenport) into buying pictures of cellphones for hundreds of dollars
* DETTENHEIM VS. DETTENHEIM - A short (4 mins) open-and-shut case regarding damage to a vehicle that one sister stole from the other.
As with the 2007 release "Justice Served", each case is prefaced with a short clip of Judy espousing a moral or cautionary tale relevant to the case.
Extras include a three-minute reel of "Judyisms" (different to those "Judyisms" seen on the "Justice Served" DVD), two clips of Judy on Entertainment Tonight (one from 1997, one from 2008) and a tribute to Judy from The Montel Williams Show.
Packaging is a standard Amaray-type keepcase. There are no subtitles. The material is presented in 4:3 fullscreen, as it is aired on TV. The DVD is not region-coded."
Order in the court

"Following the release of Judge Judy's first DVD, the hugely successful Judge Judy: Justice Served, this is the latest best-of DVD from everyone's favorite Judge. "Judge Judy: Second to None" is 1 DVD and a total of 1 hour and 46 minutes in length which also includes bonuses as well. (By the way, Judge Judy's new season begins on 9/8.)
I love Judge Judy because she's always funny and completely wise. I've watched her show for years and what I appreciate the most about her is her consistency. She treats everyone the same and doesn't put up with any garbage. I was just watching Judge Judy the other day and some lady was suing her ex-boyfriend and she tried to bring up an affair and Judge Judy said, "you want to talk about that, go somewhere else, but not here." And I think that statement really embodies what her show is about. Another reason why I enjoy Judge Judy is because she is very fair and compassionate. She doesn't come to the bench spitting ricochets. Nope. It's only after her litigants either try to lie or show their complete foolishness does she get angry. The best words to describe Judge Judy and her show are: common sense. That's her show in a nutshell because she follows the laws of the land, but she also has basic common sense, which apparently some of her litigants neglect. Judge Judy also created the entire sub-genre of arbitration TV because her show is handled much more like a binding arbitrator in that she does not bang gavels and there is less reflection on money and more reflection on people and circumstances. It's no coincidence that nearly every single other court show on American TV is patterned after and adjudicated in the same method as Judge Judy's series because she set the standard."

"Everyone knows I won't talk to them for he hour Judge Judy is on so it isn't surprising that the DVD I purchased rates 5 stars. So come on bring out more so I can collect them.
By the way I love that Judge Judy gives a little talk before each case. Excellent"
