News & Interviews for Perry Mason: Season 1
I don't think you'll be bored or outraged watching "Perry Mason." The cast is filled with big, broad scene-stealers, with Lithgow's moving turn at the top of that list... Just don't get too caught up in trying to tie all those moments together.
Matthew Rhys plays both extremes of his Perry Mason perfectly - the brooding, nonconformist of so many film noirs, as well as the emotional orator of those stirring summations to the jury.
From the pilot to the final episode, "Perry Mason" knows itself: This Perry Mason is a rebel, and he's bringing everyone along for the ride.
A gorgeous show in terms of production design and the cast is strong from top to bottom, but writers Rolin Jones & Ron Fitzgerald struggle to find a story worth investing in for at least the first half of the eight-episode season.
Strained at times, wandering at others, "Perry Mason" finds its footing eventually and by its end you may want to watch a second season even as you hope it's better than the first.
Almost too gritty but not quite. Once you get to the courtroom battle the series wins you over.
There is something thrilling in wondering what new stories we need to tell about institutions of public life when we no longer trust that they are inherently just or righteous.
Perry Mason has so many delicious ingredients... I'm looking forward to watching more.
In addition to its thoughtful politics, Perry Mason is engaging and unpredictable and looks stylish as hell.
...over-the-top violent, over-the-top gratuitously titillating and it also fails, somehow, to be gripping...
Audience Reviews for Perry Mason: Season 1
Jun 11, 2021Perry Mason's remake has nothing to say other than a formulaic detective story with cliched characters and an overdramatic tone with a lot of loose ends.
Feb 08, 2021Similar LA Noir stories have been told many times before, but who cares when it's so well done in this high-end TV mini series?
Jan 28, 2021Great story. Good pace. Dramatic tension. Vgood
Jan 21, 2021After a slow start, this got better and better with each episode. The show looks gorgeous and doesn't pull its punches. But it's the cast that elevates everything. Now that Mason is a lawyer and the writers got the kinks out, season two can be were it shines.
Jan 15, 2021The actors were very good. The series doesn't drag at all, and it keeps one hooked. The production setting, and the way each episode moves from one to the other , is quite interesting. All in all a very good watch !!!
Jan 06, 2021Turned it off after the first episode.
Dec 26, 2020A triumph for those who enjoin a charmant, violent and cathartic LA noir.
Dec 15, 2020I was looking forward to this series, because I enjoy classic film noir but it turned out awful and had too much graphic sex and violence. The darkness of this series is also depressing and there's not one likable character that makes me want to keep watching. As for Michael Rhys, I don't think his talents were well captured here either.
Dec 14, 2020Superb! Great story - keeps you in suspence all the time! The more you watch, the more riveting it gets! Fantastic acting! And yes it is profound and original! I am impressed!
Nov 22, 2020HBO's Perry Mason is the best detective series of the decade!
