Perry Mason (TV Series 2020– ) - IMDb
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.
The opening music used to scare me when a I was tot.
Definitely on my watch list.
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 don't do promos. Waste of time.
And they've given Paul Drake a genetic tan...
Still liked it though.
Paul drake had one of first carphones in TV
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.
I like it. It's good.
The sex scene with him and the neighbor had me rolling
looks like a sexed up dud. matthews rhys sure don't have the presence of raymond burr, in the courtroom, or anywhere else.
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.
a sexed up dud?
there have been maybe 2 sex scenes? The first being the movie stars he was taking pics of...
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?
