“Perry Mason” on HBO starring Matthew Rhys premiering June 21st

If they do this right I could be so down for a period piece film noir adaptation of this character. Also, I greatly miss Matthew Rhys on my television.

    At first it seemed kind of weird but then I realized its HBO and it always has a degree of high quality to their shows. 
    I do like Matthew Rhys a lot.
  • If Jim and Aron ever do a podcast about this the video should be in black and white and they should wear trench coats
  • Looks great! John Lithgow! I'm in.

    Yeah, I am definitely going to watch, but I saw very little lawyering. I am down though.

    I love Matthew Rhys and the trailer looks good but I have no affinity for Perry Mason as a character. (He's a little before my time) It'll have to either get some really good buzz or be one of the only things available to watch for me to check it out. The release date makes me think there's a good possibility of the latter though.

    If it helps, it would be another pretty great opportunity to wear a fedora

    Isn’t Perry Mason a lawyer? Why is he poncing around like a private detective?

    Yes, he was the archetype of the defense lawyer with I believe the trope of the special surprise testimony he elicits that changed everything near the end of the episode. He also has a loyal secretary and a stalwart investigator.  Nothing of which seems to be in that one trailer I watched.

    I think I saw someone say this is more based on the books than the older TV show.
