Judge Mathis, You Maverick, You!

Do I have too much time on my hands? Tell me the truth, I can handle it....

Has it caught anyone else's attention the phenomenon of cross gender, cross ethnic baliffs on court shows these days? Think about it...

Judge Judy - white female. Bert - black male.
Judge David Young - white male. Baliff - black female.
Judge Milian (The People's Court) - white female. Douglas - black male.
Judge Joe Brown - black male. Sonia - white female.

And the list goes on. Does anyone else notice a pattern here? Only Judge Mathis bucks the mold, having a male (albeit white) baliff.

Or maybe I need to start paying attention to soap operas.


  1. While I applaud your pattern recognition abilities in this case, I would agree with your original assessment.

    It's like your mind is looking for something to do while the programs are mindless....

  2. Sadly, I've noticed the same thing myself. I guess they want to attract all audiences. Which one is your favorite?

  3. I don't really have a favorite, they all fascinate me. But if you put a gun to my head, I'd have to say Judge Judy - that woman terrifies me when she flashes that predatory smile!

  4. OMG, Rick and I have been talking about that!
