On the same day as Bill Paxton, we have lost a daytime television legend as well. Joseph Wapner was originally a judge for the Los Angeles County Superior Court, but most know him from his role as the first judge on The People's Court, from 1981-1993. Wapner was a no-nonsense judge but had an easygoing manner with both plaintiffs and defendants. His show sparked the current court-show phenomenon, with Judge Judy, Judge Mathis, (current) Divorce Court, etc. The People's Court would later have two more presiding judges (Ed Koch and Jerry Sheindlin) before Marilyn Millian replaced them in 2001. She has presided over the show more years than Wapner.
Wapner was 97, and died in his sleep. While I know some people think of the court shows as "trash TV", just know that the legendary Wapner started it...and they are no Springer/Maury/Wilkos.
RIP Judge Wapner! CryCry

Just heard about that on the news a few minutes ago.

Never really watched him, but RIP all the same.

Judge Wapner was the original TV court judge, wasn't he? We used to watch him now and then quite some time back.
RIP judge Wapner

I'm not sure why I thought of this, the mind goes in all sorts of odd directions.
 
The epic Gilligans Island court scene...Go to 1:22 for one of the beautiful Dawn Wells best performances.
