Everyone's favorite lawyer Perry Mason is set to be revived by HBO. The upcoming series Perry Mason stars Welsh actor Matthew Rhys fresh off the critically acclaimed USA Network TV Show The Americans (2013), as Mason. To celebrate the revival we will take a look back at the original Perry Mason (1957) weekly series, and the TV Movie series that started with Perry Mason Returns (1985) starring Raymond Burr


So, is the original CBS TV Series the best Mason, the TV Movie Series or the re-boot HBO Series?

I preferred the original TV series and I certainly don't envy the actor to revive Perry Mason! Raymond Burr was an iconic actor!

In so many cases, the original is the best - in my opinion this is also the  "case" here

I agree to a certain extent.

Raymond Burr IS Perry Mason.

But while I was a really BIG Battlestar Galactica fan in the eighties, when I heard that it was being remade, I said to myself, who's going to be a better Starbuck, Adama or Baltar? Boy was I surprised when I saw the new series.
I wish they had gone a couple of more seasons!

The same may be true here.

Matthew Ryhs may surprise us!

Wonder if you and I will think differently after the first season is over?????

Hi Ed, I'm guessing this will have to go live after the new series starts on HBO -- but soon after --  so it reminded me that I saw an ad on the Sundance channel that they're starting to regularly run the classic series soon. I thought that, especially along with HBO's new series, it might make this poll even more popular when it goes live -- and the poll may, likewise, spark interest in both the new series and the old, especially for those people who don't know about HBO's series and, perhaps, Sundance's reruns, as well. I like when polls work as a resource and this is one of those polls, I'd think.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to both the new series and being able to see the classic series regularly on Sundance. My Mom loved the class series and, when I was little, she used to watch re-runs every weekday after lunch so, of course, I did too. : )

Since you know that I'm a punctuation nerd, may I suggest one additional comma? : )

The upcoming series Perry Mason (2020) stars Welsh actor Matthew Rhys, fresh off the critically acclaimed USA Network TV Show The Americans (2013), as Mason.

Have you ever seen the movie 'Shattered Glass?' It's based on a true story about a young journalist at The New Republic who really goes off the tracks and writes a bunch of fraudelent articles. In one scene, the very good but very particular and very angry editor makes all the junior staff go through every pending article and highlight every sentence with only one comma and meet with him about how many of those should have a second, lol. I really hope I'm not that obsessive, yikes. : 0

I'm actually starting to watch the new HBO series tonight so that I can vote. I can't imagine something beating out the original series but I'm interested to see the new series anyway and I figured I shouldn't vote until I give the new series a try -- 'just in case. I am looking forward to watching it. Have you seen it?

Waiting till the season is complete. I have Dish. No HBO. So I wait until there are at least 6-10 series where a complete season is available for all. Then I subscribe for one month and binge all the series' one season.
And I am a big fan of the original. I don't think anyone beats Burr's original series. Plus I love all the old 1950s and 60s cars.

Everyone's favorite lawyer Perry Mason has been revived by HBO. The new series Perry Mason (2020) stars Welsh actor Matthew Rhys, fresh off the critically acclaimed USA Network TV Show The Americans (2013), as Mason. To celebrate the all new series set in the lawyers early days, we will take a look back at the original Perry Mason (1957) weekly series, and the TV Movie series that started with Perry Mason Returns (1985) starring Raymond Burr

So, is the original CBS TV Series the best Mason, the TV Movie Series or the new HBO Series?

No, but you may be close. Because your polls are from two IMDb accounts, the IMDb staff would not see that you have enough polls to achieve 100K votes. Since I keep track of both accounts, I will be able to tell when I run the statistics again. Sadly, it is taking longer and longer to run the poll statistics.
