Storyline

Set in 1932 Los Angeles, the series focuses on the origin story of famed defense lawyer Perry Mason, based on characters from Erle Stanley Gardner's novels. Living check-to-check as a low-rent private investigator, Mason is haunted by his wartime experiences in France and suffering the effects of a broken marriage. L.A. is booming while the rest of the country recovers from the Great Depression -- but a kidnapping gone very wrong leads to Mason exposing a fractured city as he uncovers the truth of the crime.

Slow n steady like reading a great book
31 July 2020 | by rocknbluz68See all my reviews

I'm loving this origin series of Perry Mason. I'm on episode 6 ,it's getting so much better. One of my favourite authors is James Ellroy, The Black Dahlia. L.A Confidential amongst others, and this series reminds me of the darkness of those books, it's slow but. WHAM!, it hits you, and grabs your curiosity, the setting of Perry and how he becomes what you know, it's like a multitude of layers , slowly peeling off, where you recognise characters, or who they will later become! I'm enjoying each weekly episode, whilst my husband is asking me why don't you binge watch it.? My reply is,it's like reading a great book, where you gasp and go, did that happen,or like enjoying a really good rum,- why rush? Matthew Rhys is perfectly cast, as Perry a man of the world, and with a personal moral code that may not be as legally Correct, but principled in his beliefs, but also with fears and doubts as any man of the time. The setting is perfect, the cast and characters spot on, Corruption, depression,, murder, Loving how this unfolds. For those who like Raymond Chandler, Dashell Hammett enjoy. Perhaps I should now add E..S Gardner too, as I'm. Sure the writers of this series have done him proud.
