What I liked best about this new version and/or the prequel to what became Perry Mason with Raymond Burr was the setting. Much of it was shot in my hometown of San Pedro, California. It is a very noir and of the moment version as Perry is asexual, Della Street is gay and Paul Drake is Black. I did not like the evangelical centered story line too much and while I like Matthew Rhys I did not think he was perfectly cast as Mason. Maybe memories of Raymond Burr, with his deep voice and composure got in the way. Anyway San Pedro homies, take a look!
