TV Review: “Bad Judge”

OVERALL: Bad Judge Rules!!! Just watch this show and ENJOY!

POINTS: Funny plot, funny, writing, great moral center. This show is a joy.

PITFALLS: WTF NBC? You are thinking of cancelling this show only after it has aired for a few weeks?!?!?! ARGH! Uh no, leave it.

FEMALE CHARACTER(S): OMG a heroine who has power and acts out of the stereotypical norm?!?!? I LOVE IT! Judge Rebecca Wright Rules!

CULTURAL PITFALL(S): See Bechdel Test.

HIGH POINT(S): Huzzah to the cast for their excellent timing and on screen camaraderie. 🙂 Also CHEERS to Kate Walsh for taking the role of Judge Rebecca Wright and totally owning it. Also three cheers for her sidekick Tedward played by Tone Bell. I could watch those two onscreen for hours.

BECHDEL TEST (Website): 1 of 3 to 3 of 3, depending on the episode. Heroine Rebecca doesn’t have women friends that we have seen. Most conversations are between her and men. However when the women do show up they show up and do well.

RACIAL BECHDEL TEST (Website): 1 of 3 to 3 of 3, depending on the episode. Tedward and Judge Hernandez often have conversations together, though they are mostly about Rebecca they also add lines about law and order.
