Review: ‘Perry Mason’ Episode 1


Perry Mason has been synonymous with courtroom drama and high-pressure moments. HBO is taking a different approach with this iconic character and looking at his early years. The show focuses on Mason’s early years as a private detective in the 1930’s which is a great way to relaunch the series. Matthew Rhys steps into the role and is off to a fantastic start. The launching point of this series centers around the death of a baby, and Mason is brought in to investigate the matter. Here are our 5 takeaways from the first episode.
