What can I say? Covid-19...it explains a lot.
I liked the idea of bringing Perry Mason back. HBO's version has good casting choices.
It has a "Chinatown" look. And it should because it is the same city (L.A.) in roughly the same time period as the Polanski film. So the architecture, the cars, the clothes, everyone wearing hats - high marks.
But for all of that, I thought is was on par with average TV.
