"I bought the first volume of season 1 of Perry Mason and cruised through it. You can't beat this show! Not a clinker in the entire run. I am thrilled that there's not a huge gap in between volumes. Now to hope that they take this show all the way to the end!"
Perry Mason-Season 1 Vol. 2

"I am so happy to see these wonderful old shows being released on DVD. I do not watch the TV shows of today. I find them lacking talent, boring, cheap and a sad reflection of our times. In my opinion, wonderful shows like Perry Mason, represent TV at its finest. Great acting, great stars and wonderful writing. I recommend this set to anyone who loves vintage television. The transfers and sound are wonderful! Watching these great old shows bring back a time when life was simpler and we did not have to watch our fellow man eat bugs to get their 15 minutes of fame. I hope they release all seasons of Perry Mason. I also hope to see more of the wonderful old shows of the past."
TV As It Should Be

"Having just completed PM season 1, volume 2, I must say that I was thoroughly happy with this purchase. (I powered through season 1, volume 1 in early April--and loved it.) The storylines are all good here--a few are excellent. The acting is top-notch by Burr, Hopper and Hale. And I think Ray Collins (as Lt. Tragg) and William Tallman (as Hamilton Burger) also turned in good performances. What I like most about this first season of Perry Mason is the feeling it brings to the viewer--it is almost like being transported back in time to 1957. I was too young to watch these episodes on broadcast TV--and experiencing them now immersed me in a seemingly simpler time--when judgments about people and their actions were more or less cast in black or white, not in shades of gray. The dialogue moves along at a crisp pace. The guest stars are interesting, some are excellent supporting actors. Raymond Burr's character nuances are amazing (he is very good at using his facial expressions and authoritarian voice to convey attitude), and the quality of the video and sound is very good. Thankfully, you get the entire episodes--with the scenes that were edited or cut to make room for TV commercials--restored. I only wish that Paramount / CBS would put together a well-produced documentary on the Making Of Perry Mason. Even without this missing bonus feature, my plan is to purchase the next DVD set on June 17th. Wouldn't it be cool if, somehow, the producers and CBS-TV had filmed a special 2-hour episode back in the day--and having kept it a secret all these years--could NOW release it as a 100% new product on DVD? Certainly, it could bring in plenty of money--but back then not many could justify the expense of such a plan when few could have predicted the massive DVD home theatre market of 2007."
