    I was an avid watcher of the Raymond Burr series way back when.

    Now it's Matthews Rhys (Americans) as Mason.

    The first episode was fittingly quite dark.

    But I'm a bit put off by Mason being the investigator and not the lawyer. Maybe he evolves.

    And I kept hoping for an updated version of the classic series music, but was left hanging there as well.

    I give it an 8 for it's solo episode so far and PVR is set to record the series.

    I watched a bunch of the old series when I found it this spring.

    Oh I know. I used to watch it first run with my mom.

    But it's cool.

    When the first made a Mission Impossible movie I was stoked to hear the theme song pounding in DD or DTS and I wasn't disappointed..

    Last night I was waiting for the horns and got some techno thing instead...

    This exactly, it's supposed to be the "origin story", no?

    I guess.

    I don't do promos. Waste of time.

    And they've given Paul Drake a genetic tan...

    Still liked it though.

    Its just like the original series. Remember when Raymond Burr was being ridden by a Hispanic woman he drinks tequila, no mescal, with and he falls off the bed? Classic Burr. Also the pumpkin pie scene, straight from the old series.

    having never watched any of the original Perry Mason, I could really care less how Rhys is compared to the older versions.

    I think he is doing a really great job with the role. He was great in The Americans.

    the show is a lot more gruesome than I expected, but I am into it.

    Old school Perry Mason wouldn't fly.

    Burr is a solid actor but the writing...oh ok the same DA gets beat with the same move every single time? Somehow the guilty parties always end up on the stand and confess?

    Lol
