The CASE is the only part worth watching!
29 July 2017 | by ettal-54218See all my reviews

I truly love this court show. I believe the judge is the best of all of the court TV shows. I don't always agree with her decisions, but I have no knowledge of the law, so my opinion of her decisions is unnecessary. THE MAIN PROBLEM with the show is the reason I have to DVR it before watching. I cannot stand the commentary with the people "on the street". It it never intelligent or funny. It is a complete waste of the viewers' time. A second problem is the foolish interviews in the hall after the decision. They are just silly. I fast forward through both of those annoyances ( and the ads, of course). Judge Milian is a wonderful, genuine person.
