After 271 episodes, spanning nine years (1957-1966), one of America's all-time favorite courtroom/detective shows, Perry Mason, will come to an end on June 11, 2013, in its ninth and final season (released in two volumes). Volume one features fifteen episodes on four discs. TV's most entertaining landmark series starring Raymond Burr will be remembered and cherished as one of the best, classic shows in television history.
Unlike many of the unimaginable, lackluster TV shows inundating the airwaves today, Perry Mason was and still is one-of-a-kind series. Clean, fun, timeless entertainment at its very best, Perry Mason should not be missed by anyone who relishes substantial entertainment (writing, acting). On June 11, add season nine, volume one to your treasured collection. Highly recommended.
