Here is my Perry Mason HBO review. The series is based on the previous television series of Perry Mason (watch on IMDB). It also shows Los Angeles in the midst of recovering from the Great Depression. Perry Mason is given a nice backstory and a kick-ass legal story. Add in some top notch acting and a noir update, and you have a great new show.
Maureen’s Legal Bottom Line
If it’s on HBO, it probably features a lot of sex, violence, and gore. Even if it’s set in 1932. It is only very loosely connected to the original Perry Mason.
