Bad Judge Season 1 Episode 6 Review: What Is Best In Life?

at .  Updated at .

After hitting a creative high last week, Bad Judge hit a lull this week.

On Bad Judge Season 1 Episode 6 Rebecca butted heads with a woman she went to law school with.

I'm edging closer and closer to giving up on the show. After enjoying the improved episode last week, I hated this episode.

NBC has already pulled the plug on Bad Judge, but will apparently air all of the ordered episodes.

Rebecca's antics this week made me question why she is still employed. I know the title of the show is Bad Judge but I'd say she's more stupid than bad.

The stuff with her boss calling her a good judge to conclude the episode was rubbish. As if anyone would actually comment on her doing a good job. 

The case this week was absurd to say the least. Basically, the accused exposed himself to others and got away with it. Yeah, I don't see that happening.

It's so disheartening that last week seemed like a major turning point for the show. The show is just not consistent and I can see why people have ditched it. 

Tedward is a bright spot on the show, his friendship with the judge is excellent. They are both so close to each other. I enjoyed the scene in which they both got dressed up and no one else did. 

Rebecca: Who runs Barter town?
Tedward: That's the wrong movie, that's from Mad Max.

Ryan Hansen was barely present tonight. It's a bit stupid billing him as a lead character and then under utilizing him. He is one of the best parts of the show. I don't understand why they have ditched the storyline with him and the judge sleeping together. 

The writers should have sat down and mapped the journey of all the characters for the season beforehand.

I do understand with this being a comedy series that it could be airing episodes out of order, but that doesn't help the journey the rest of us must take if we continue to watch.

There were some funny scenes, I liked seeing Dana get arrested from the court. There is obviously a rivalry between both characters. 

Actually Dana, if you were doing your job you would have known your client was lying.


All things considered, this was not one of the series best episodes. Not by a mile. I'm not expecting the show to improve again. It took five episodes to become worth watching and one episode to ruin the momentum it gained. Maybe we'll have a good series finale, but I won't be holding my breath.
