A Disappointed Fan
on November 29, 2010
I am an avid fan of the Perry Mason series and have been willing and excited to purchase each new season of the show as it has been made available. I was terribly disappointed to notice that season 5, vol. 1 was not the crisp, black and white production I am used to receiving. The video was slightly grainy and the sets appear to be shadowy. The filming techniques appear to have changed as well (shooting from different angles in the courtroom and in Perry's office). I also feel that the plots are becoming too involved. I will continue to watch as I purchased vol. 2, but this may be my last purchase. I am inclined to think that "modern" filming techniques may have spoiled the simplicity that I so loved in the older shows. The grainy aspect may merely be a quality issue with this set of CD's.
I will hope for the best and forge ahead!
