I love to watch these people and the things for which they sue each other. I love to see the clothes that they wear to court and evidently think is appropriate attire. I love Judge Judy's nasty comebacks. I love everything about it.
Maybe it lifts me up because my life is so much better than most of the lives of the people who appear on Judge Judy. Maybe it isn't that deep.
All I know is that I hope they never stop making new episodes.
