From Back Cover:

Christine and Flo join the nutty Night life.

This season, life in Judge Harry Stone's court starts with a tear (as the gang says farewell to Selma) and a horselaugh (as they welcome wiseacre Flo to the municipal menagerie). And it's all fun from there in 22 absurdly hilarious episodes as Harry and his staff (including another newcomer, Legal Aid attorney Christine Sullivan) contend with New York's zaniest nuts and dolts: the usual winos, weirdos, hookers and con artists, plus an orangutan, a rock star, a man from Saturn and a gorgeous witch who has Harry under her spell. The 3-Disc set of Season 3 ends on a dark and stormy night, when four expectant moms fulfill their expectations with the panic-stricken assistance of the whole Night Court crew. Lullaby and good Night Court!

My Comments:

Season 3 marks the last of the revolving door that was the cast of this show with Markie Post finally taking her permanent place as the attorney opposing Dan Fielding. And while new - and temporary - addition "Flo" is funny enough, season 4 will finally bring us the hilarious and incomparable Roz.
