Quality script and acting,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Perry Mason: Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
These Perry Mason series are totally absorbing. I had forgotten how good they were and the author's craftsmanship and control really shows through. The acting too is subtle, with gestures and glances completely in keeping with the way people would respond in real life ie not for cinematic effect. Unusually each episode is 53 minutes long and with a large number of episodes in each series its really good value viewing. I can't wait for series 3 and 4 to be released over here - they are already available in the US. Its fascinating too to see the location shots for the real view of California in the late 1950's and not a recreation.
Did you know that the actors playing Mason and Burger originally auditioned for each other's role but Erle Stanley Gardner insisted that they be switched? What a wise move that proved to be and one which has given us so much entertainment.

I'm also waiting for Perry Mason seasons 3 and 4 on region 2 DVD. I have a multi-region player but it works out to be about 1/4 the price to buy r2 Perry Mason DVD as opposed to r1 DVD because the r1 Perry Mason sets sell each season in two parts, each part costing upwards of US$30! Anyway, I was wondering if you have any info on when/if Perry Mason season 3 comes out in the UK? I've not been able to find anything on the internet and I notice that: Season 1 was released Aug 2008, Season 2 in Sep 2009 therefore Season 3 should be out now. Just hoping you might have heard something about the release of Season 3 over there. Thanks in advance.
