Movie Reviews

This just gets worse and worse
B. Sloane | Los Angeles, CA USA | 03/31/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I guess Paramount thinks Perry Mason fans will wait any length of time and pay any price for these half-season sets. It's ironic, since nearly all the best PM episodes are from the first two seasons; by the fourth, the actors, writing and directing all slow down considerably. That snappy noir-ish dialogue is gone, along with the incomparable Ray Collins as Lt. Tragg (Collins' successors were uniformly colorless).

It should also be pointed out that while the DVD transfer quality is excellent, these are NOT COMPLETE episodes! I own many Perry Mason tapes on VHS (the Columbia House series), and in several cases a brief scene from the VHS version is missing from the DVD. There is simply no excuse for this.

Given the incomplete episodes, and Paramount's usurious pricing policy, I would recommend all Perry Mason fans wait to buy any more DVD's until they are available used."
Expensive but worth it

"No doubt the price for this half season release is high and raises the eyebrows of potential buyers. I think we must assume that this price increase is the result of low sales volumes on previous releases. I don't like the price but I would rather have the DVD's at the higher price than no release at all. Please don't let the Perry Mason series follow the lead of Ironside where the studio released two season and then quit!"
Good Long Term Value

"This is my all time favorite TV program. I'll admit it "ain't" cheap. However, I spend more than this at any restaurant for one meal which gives a one time temporary enjoyment. Since I watch PM over and over, in my humble opinion, this is money well spent because it keeps on giving enjoyment."
Really enjoyable

"Have to agree with others here who have written how excellent this batch of stories are. They are believable, well acted, and don't seem nearly as dated as a show from 1960 should be. The stories are clever in many instances and the ways Perry is brought into these situations are really well done.

I have no problem paying $34.99 for this set. I have all the Perry Mason sets released to date and I want the rest of these episodes and I want them soon.

Thank you."
