The show is one of my all-time favorites, esp. the 1st thru 7th seasons. The 8th (1964/65) and 9th/final (1965/66) seasons are still good, but in my opinion, not "as" good as earlier seasons. As the mid-1960s approached, two other CBS-owned shows also began to "slip" a bit in my opinion, Gunsmoke and Rawhide. (Have Gun Will Travel and Twilight Zone had already ceased production with 1962/63 and 1963/64, respectively).
I'm very happy that CBS/Viacom/Paramount has continued with the DVD releases, and have just started watching the 1st-half 6th-season DVDs. I have also pre-ordered the 2nd-half 6th-season DVDs from Amazon, and hope that both halves of the 7th season will also soon be out on DVD.
But CBS/Viacom/Paramount has TAMPERED with the closing theme on most of these (1st-half) 6th-season episodes! The closing theme on the 6th and 7th seasons was in "two parts", almost like the 5th season's "two part" closing themes. (Also similar to how Gomer Pyle and Dick van Dyke has "two part" closing themes, which is more like 5th season Perry closings). But CBS/Viacom/Paramount has "re-edited" the two-part closing themes on these DVDs into a "continuous" closing credits/theme.Read more ›
Sure, most episodes in Perry Mason: Season 6, Volume 1 build to a courtroom climax involving a blurted confession from the real villain, but there are exceptions, including one where "the case" not only never comes before the bench, but develops, unfolds, and is resolved by Perry while he's on vacation!
Certainly, long-suffering D.A. Hamilton Burger (William Talman) sets himself up yet again for the latest in a series of bruising professional defeats, but don't you think it's time we gave credit where credit is due? This guy never prosecutes a case he doesn't believe in, and he takes his lumps so gracefully that as one episode concludes, he actually smiles and says "You know, Perry, maybe for once, I was wrong."
The quality of these restorations continues to amaze, and though there are moments that betray bits of dirt and drop-off, they are just that: moments, and they are rare indeed.
Say what you will about Paramount's insistence on breaking these seasons into halves and not providing extras, but you can't deny that you get what you pay for.

Hard to believe this show is 50 years old. Yes, it's in black and white, but the stories are good and the leading roles are well-acted. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Gaston
