Third Time No Charm

When you think of how many players hope to star in one successful television series, Raymond Burr was one of the luckiest people ever to don greasepaint. He did ten years as Perry Mason and seven years as Robert Ironside. Enough success for any man.

Luck does have a lot to do with it, some of the most talented people around flopped on getting one successful show. A lot depends on the public's taste. Sometimes the best of them get overexposed, it's why Madonna keeps reinventing her persona.

Kingston: Confidential cast Raymond Burr as a media tycoon like Rupert Murdoch or Ted Turner. As I remember right Burr was generally involved with the print media. But like so many of our television heroes, Burr had an idealistic streak in him and sought to use his power to right wrongs done to the average joe.

In the cast were Pamela Hensley, Linda Galloway and Art Hindle as his assistants who handled the rough end of the business under Burr's direction.

The shows weren't bad, but I guess the viewing public just didn't take to Burr in this role and maybe after almost 20 years of him as Perry Mason and Ironside they were overexposed. So Kingston: Confidential died a quick broadcast death after 13 episodes.

Again, maybe some nostalgia channel can give this like so many other flop shows another airing.
