  1. I thought Perry Mason was a lawyer, not a private investigator? Maybe this is a "prequel" to him going to law school.

    Tatiana Maslany is a very talented young Canadian actress from the prairie province of Saskatchewan. Her biggest hit series so far is "Orphan Black" where she got rave reviews for playing multiple characters.

  2. I remember my mom watching the original Perry Mason. She'll probably end up watching this new one. After her daily soap opera, of course.

    1. Hope her daily soaps still have episodes shot, Brits are in shortage with theirs.

    2. They are probably on reruns right now, but she doesn't care. She'll still watch them daily.

    3. Neighbours are apparently the first one that will continue shooting but under very strictly planned measures which will be a model then to other soaps. I'm guessing that means no sex scenes, and dialogues from a distance LOL

    5. We will all die from boredom soon, methinks. But Last Kingdom starts on Sunday, so at least there's something to postpone the death from dreariness.

  3. I wonder why LA was booming when the rest of the US was in a depression?
