I did most of my thesis writing at my home in Farnham Street rather than the office at Curtin University during my years in Perth. During those long days of writing, the television was usually on. I think I watched more broadcast television during those several years than I’ve ever in my life-time collectively so far. One of the series that was typically on the box was Judge Judy. The series is a reality-based court show, and is largely concerned over the title character’s arbitration over small civil cases. Pretty much like the Small Claims we’ve got in Singapore, and concerning similar cases, e.g. when you buy a product that turns out to be dysfunctional etc.
Truth to tell, I’m not really that big a fan of the series, because I found Judge Judy’s acerbic wit and dripping sarcasm fun to listen to only in small amounts. When it gets dragged on a bit, it gets a little tiresome, and I remembered typically on those occasions, I’d just mute the volume for a few minutes. Still, the following link (just click on the picture) was forwarded to me last week, and it concerns one episode where Judge Judy rules against an eBay scammer. The video’s pretty long with a running length of 10 minutes, and the best parts are in the first 4 and last 2 minutes (the middle portions can be safely skipped). Enjoy.:)
