From The Era of Great T.V.!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Perry Mason: Season 8, Vol. 1 (DVD)
Wouldn't it be great if there more shows like Perry Mason on today rather than all of the T&A, foul mouthed and violent shows that have become the norm in today's T.V. offerings? When I was a kid, every Thursday evening, our whole family gathered around the T.V. to watch Perry Mason. We were usually joined by some of our neighbors since we were one of the few families in the neighborhood who owned a T.V. set. Perry Mason was/remains today a show that the whole family could/can watch together without worring about the content being inappropriate for the younger ones to watch. The incomprable Raymond Burr delivered a truly believeable performance as Perry Mason, a lawyer who in spite of District Attorney Hamilton Burger and his cohert the rascally Lt. Tragg, always managed to uncover the real perpetrators through factual evidence and solid reasoning. He did so all the while keeping the audience guessing "who done it?" right to the end of each show. Great entertaining and timeless T.V. Highly recommended.

I really appreciate your comments. I feel the same way. TV today is everything but 'family friendly'. But I'm grateful for such legendary series as Perry Mason!!!!
