462873, Night Court's Dan Fielding Appreciation Post
Posted by Buddy_Gilapagos, Fri Jul-17-09 08:17 AM
Has there been a television character greater than John Larroquette's Dan Fielding on Night Court? How many other characters were created from his mold (Stuart Bondek from SPin City, Barney Stinson on How I met your Mother, are the ones who immediately come to mind)? I think in general John Larroquette is an underappreciate actor. Anyone else agree?

One of the greatest television characters ever. Night Court was a great show until it started getting weird. One of the strongest ensemble casts in history.
