The Organization

Mason, Perry Mason

Finished the first season of the new Perry Mason show. Went into it only knowing that there had been an earlier series (the 1957 one), but nothing else. Really enjoyed the early 1930s setting, and the social turmoil of the first world war, great depression, prohibition and, sadly ever present, bigotry, racism and sexism. Happy to know that there is an in-progress second season, which is how i discovered the first, that i can just roll on to. John Lithgow was an unexpected delight. Also shout out to Canadian Tatiana Maslany as Sister Alice. I give it a 4/5.
