The Emmy®-winning comedy continues its lighthearted look at night court in New York City in the 1980s, where anything can happen. As season five starts, a distraught Judge Harry T. Stone finalizes his plan to pull a crazy prank against the City of New York for — he thinks — not reappointing him to the bench. Can he be stopped in time and told he has his job back? Plus, Roz is diagnosed with diabetes and the group rallies to lift her spirits. Speaking of spirits, in a special Halloween episode, Harry is trapped in a safe and Dan tries to buy his soul back from the devil. Sounds pricey! Guest stars this season include Johnny Carson as Christine’s admirer; Don Cheadle as a teenager in need of support; Teri Hatcher as the buxom young niece of Dan’s boss; and Yakov Smirnoff, who tries to get arrested in order to be deported back to Russia because his mother is ill. Plus, why is Mel Torme (appearing as himself) in Harry’s courtroom?
