    660 Perry Mason S1E6 review: "Chapter 6"

    We’re down to the final three episodes of HBO’s “Perry Mason” season one, and the trial of Emily Dodson finally begins. Speaking for the defense is one Perry Mason, who quickly finds he’s out of his league and running out of time to find out who killed Baby Charlie, while Sister Alice is hard at work trying to pull off an even bigger miracle. We see Della and Pete do what they do best and a reluctant ally comes to the fore, but it begs the question…is everyone going to see the case through to the end?

    659 Perry Mason S1E5 review: "Chapter 5"

    Four episodes remain in Season 1 of HBO’s Perry Mason and it’s a moment of loss, reflection, crisis and galvanization for everyone involved.

Host Devin Higgins and returning co-host Kirk McPike are here to set the pieces on the chessboard!

In this episode we have snakes in boxes, corpses in sand traps, blasphemy, Chekhov’s Wingtip, and a sad end for E.B. Jonathan. Host Devin Higgins and the peripatetic raconteur himself, Dan Moren, are here to help sort it all out!

    655 Perry Mason S1E1 Review: "Chapter 1"

    HBO decided to revive Perry Mason with an eight-episode miniseries, and we decided to do a dive into whether or not it was a good idea, how much different it is from the classic 50’s version our parents or grandparents knew and loved, and break down “Chapter 1.”
