Everyone's favorite lawyer Perry Mason is set to be revived by HBO. The upcoming series Perry Mason stars Welsh actor Matthew Rhys fresh off the critically acclaimed USA Network TV Show The Americans (2013), as Mason. To celebrate the revival we will take a look back at the original Perry Mason (1957) weekly series, and the TV Movie series that started with Perry Mason Returns (1985) starring Raymond Burr


So, was the original TV Series the best Mason, or was it the TV Movie Series?

I preferred the original TV series and I certainly don't envy the actor to revive Perry Mason! Raymond Burr was an iconic actor!

2 hour movies may be better if only 1 hour
extra hour has Detectives Paul Drake Jr. and Ken Malansky
with some partner chatting with a bunch of folks
and in car & foot chases, fistfights, and other action(?) scenes - just for filler


William Katt   ...  Paul Drake Jr. 
He is the son of actress Barbara Hale and actor Bill Williams.
