As an avid Perry Mason fan, I have collected seasons one through seven. I am not purchasing seasons eight and nine. The stories in season seven, especially the second volume, are often too complicated, too histrionic, and too grim. No one in the cast except the Paul Drake character is having any fun. Some stories do not have the Della Street character which really hurts the overall feel of the shows. Raymond Burr is clearly not enjoying it and has lost the "spring in his step" and his voice. I understand we all get older! And I understand the "times they were a changin'" by season seven. Still, I'm going to continue enjoying seasons one through six which still had a sense of humor and stories that made sense.

There is nothing like the old Perry Mason series. I do not even watch the garbage they have on TV today. I asked my son to give me Season 8 for Christmas!

This review is for the whole set through session 7 disk 1: I am rather amazed at how well these DVDs look on my 55 in Sony screen. With the exception of a very few scenes on disk one of season one, the video quality is much better than it was when broadcast. Contrast and grays are so good that I can almost forget I'm watching black and white TV! The sound is full - as in dynamic range, but mono of course.

As for the content: You either like to watch these old shows or you don't. The formula from show to show is exactly the same and can be tiring after a couple hundred shows, but I like watching anyway.

Another great box set of Perry Mason. I wish CBS would tell some one over at W.B. how this work's so we can get 77 Sunset Strip and Hawaiian Eye on DVD.,

I have not seen the actual dvds (I did purchase the dvds after posting review- good quality dvds once again by CBS), but I have seen these episdoes on rerun on the ME-TV channel. This season seemed better than season six and eight. The stories were better and contained the good list of guest stars. Among the episodes that I enjoyed were: The Frightened Fisherman(excellent plot) Drowsy Mosquito (with Arthur Hunnicutt (from El Dorado with John Wayne) and Strother Martin), Case of the misplaced shoe box (guest star Billy Mumy from Lost in Space), Case of the 50 millionth Frenchman (Good plot and a quirky character for the client and guest star David McCallum from Man from Uncle and CSI),Case of the Antic Angel (guest star Peter Breck of the Big Valley), Case of the Deadly Verdict (only case Perry Mason lost and a cameo by Ray Collins as Lt. Tragg). The picture quality for this season seemed excellent. The black white had a bolder contrast and less of of a gray look. I'm not sure if it was a better copy of the master or if the film quality and lighting was better in the mid 1960s vs. the 1950s. I thought the first four seasons contained the best work of the series but would recommend cherry picking season seven over some of the other weaker later seasons.

Perry Mason Season 7 Volume 2

These fifteen TV shows from 1964 are based on the novels of Erle Stanley Gardner. The books are more complete and informative, they tell about life that is not experienced by most people. The books explain why some things are done, the films only show you what happened. The books tell you about "ropers", rough or smooth shadows, how to evade surveillance, and avoid leaving a back trail. Some questioned the legality and ethics of Perry Mason's tactics but the stories were written before modern legal rules. The background tells about life in Los Angeles and America. There is nothing like these dramatic stories on today's broadcast TV. When was the last time you saw a trial lawyer as a hero? Erle Stanley Gardner was a founder of the "Court of Last Resort" which sought to free the unjustly convicted. Gardner sought to use scientific means to find the guilty rather than using hunches or guesses alone.

The seeming reality of these stories is due in part to characters who don't look like Hollywood actors. Some of the original stories were modified for TV. The theme music is typical for the late 1950s. Note the style of clothing and culture; ladies wore white gloves. People seldom lock their doors. The prices date these films. One advantage is seeing the many automobiles from that era. How many can you identify? Note the slimness of people, the smoking, and the familiarity with pistols. Watch how the actors express their emotions by their facial expressions. The camera sharpness and quality is excellent, but these films have a higher contrast than in earlier seasons. These stories often use the misinterpretation of circumstantial evidence to provide dramatic effects. The courtroom scenes are usually the Preliminary Hearings and often tell about the law.

The episodes on the recently released S7 V2 DVD of "Perry Mason were a perfect choice for the period leading up to "Frankenstorm" Hurricane Sandy and the actual storm. The sharp contrast of the well-filmed black-and-white episodes and nefarious dealing were a good match with the dark skies, strong winds, and pounding rain.

I look forward to watching more episodes during this winter's inevitable snowageddons.

"Mason" was a wonderful 1960s quasi-anthology film noir lite courtroom drama. The S7 V2 episodes were from the second half of the 1963-64 season. The good folks at CBS Video are releasing S8 V1 in a few weeks and finishing the entire series with an S8 V2 release in January 2013.

"Mason" was a procedural with one of the best procedures out there. The opening scenes typically consisted of the innocent of the week finding himself or herself in a relatively minor jam that required legal counsel. That is when Mason, accompanied by loyal secretary Della Street and stalwart private investigator Paul Drake, would usually literally and figuratively enter the picture.

The not-so-innocent of the week would then find himself or herself on a slab in the morgue, and the police would arrest the innocent who consulted Mason.

Mason, who apparently handled everything from divorces to murder cases, would then agree to represent the innocent on the murder charge. The ensuing investigation would reveal a handful of other folks who the murder benefited.

The final ten minutes or so would consist of the murder trial of the innocent, and these proceedings typically ended with Mason revealing the true culprit ala Sherlock Holmes in the drawing room.
