As an avid PERRY MASON fan, I do not regret the money expended on Season 9, but new buyers need to be aware that the later seasons of this seminal show dropped off the ratings in the mid-1960's for good reason! Not only do the scripts lack the intensity of earlier seasons, but Raymond Burr appears to be sleepwalking through the episodes without any apparent edge! Add to this recurring lame attempts to get in tune with prevailing new culture unleashed by Beatlemania, and it is no wonder that PERRY MASON was ended in 1966!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cherry On Top Of The Sundae May 2 2013
By GranO - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Perry Mason was notified that it would not be renewed for a tenth season, on November 15, 1965, about halfway through the 9th season's filming. But unlike, say, CBS's Rawhide, which was abruptly canceled that same fall, Perry Mason was allowed to complete the season and film a full 30 episodes. So, many of these episodes in season 9 volume two, have a nice touch, giving the writers, actors, and producers a chance to leave the viewer in good stead. There is some great comedy in this volume, like Victor Buono's broad manipulations as the mastermind of inept adolescent thieves, in color, in The Case Of The Twice Told Twist; his slow burns while pondering the fools around him is his best appearance in the series. Raymond Burr gets to play Perry Mason and a drunken sailor in The Case Of The Dead Ringer. While actors playing their evil doubles is often cited as the point when a series jumps the shark, Burr plays the two opposites with such relish that it is a treat to see. Perry Mason wraps up on a high note with the all-star, and many amateurs, Case Of The Final Fadeout, placing the finishing touch on a superb show

5.0 out of 5 stars A long road draws to a close July 26 2013
By Brent Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Many fans of Perry Mason have watched for the release of each season expectantly, hoping that the momentum stayed with us and the entire series made it to DVD. At last, that is now the case with the last half of Season Nine in release.

I watched Perry Mason as a kid, but I became an entrenched fan during the years that TBS ran the series in the 80s. I saw them round and round, until to this day many of them are like old friends when I view them again on DVD. However, these old friends bring continued surprises, as the DVD sets have the entire show, something that has likely never been true in any syndication of the series.

I never felt that the quality of the acting, mysteries, or production dropped throughout Perry Mason's long run. The final few shows were as entertaining as the first.

As others have mentioned, this set contains the very entertaining dual role episode, with Raymond Burr playing both Mason and the alcoholic merchant marine hired to get Mason into hot water.

Not only have I always been entertained by Perry Mason and his mysteries, but I learned a few things along the way too. Mason was a great role model with his firm stands against those without ethics. I admired that backbone and made sure to grow it myself, and it has served me well over the decades.

We can't thank most of them in person anymore, but regardless my thanks go out to Erle Stanley Gardner, Raymond Burr, Barbara Hale, William Hopper, William Tallman, Ray Collins and the dozens of judges, hundreds of guest stars, and the outstanding writers who brought us so much entertainment for so long, and made these characters our friends.

RIP

5.0 out of 5 stars Fitting 20th Anniversary Tribute to Raymond Burr Aug. 24 2013
By nicsview - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
September 12th 2013 will mark the 20th anniversary of the death of Raymond Burr, so it is entirely apposite that the last of the Perry Mason box sets will have been brought out to coincide with that date. Throughout the DVD release programme, one of the highlights has been the pristine quality of the prints (possibly accounting for the fairly high price of the sets). But in the final analysis we now have a superb complete record of one of the most successful of all American TV series, and people who 'grew up with' the show will surely not begrudge the fact that the project is now completed and can be sampled at leisure.

With regard to this final season, a special mention should be made of Richard Anderson, who joined the cast as Lieutenant Steve Drumm. This fine actor, such a familiar star and guest-star in TV series from the 1960s onwards, always offered a thoughtful, dignified and serious presence in all his appearances, yet has never really received full credit for his contribution to the success of post-war American TV, so it was entirely fitting that he should have been chosen to play a part in the concluding season of this most iconic of series, when he was in the prime of his distinguished career.

By now it should be clear that this is a 'must-have' recommendation. Enthusiasts of the show will, of course, waste no time in completing their collection, and, despite some quibbles about the pricing which have been registered over the years (noted earlier), Paramount should be commended for eventually giving us the complete 'official edition'.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 benefits of viewing this last Season Jan. 20 2014
By Rachel Grean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I particularly enjoy Seasons 1 to 7 inclusive but 8 and 9 suffered in the writing. BUT the 3 reasons to get this Vol 2 set are the following:

Episode 21 - Twice-Told Twist is in colour - the only episode all those years that was. The colour is saturated but there.

Episode 30 - The Case of the Final Fadeout (last episode of the series) involved a murder that occurred on a film set. As part of the investigation, the film staff identified themselves to the authorities as potential witnesses. The film staff were in fact the same tv film staff working on the Perry Mason set and they used their real names and occupations. This episode also included Erle Stanley Gardner himself acting as the judge in the courtroom scene. It was the only one in which he appeared.

Extras which included Barbara Hale and contained short films of Erle Stanley Gardner, Raymond Burr interviews with Charlie Rose, etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was the Best of times; It was the Worst of times Sept. 20 2013
By Jacktavish - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Who doesn't laugh when DA Hamilton Burger says: "I hope Mr. Mason doesn't intend to waste the court's time by going on one of his fishing expeditions!"
I love pretty much every season of Perry Mason, but this one is a bit weird! As the show's stars aged gracefully, the producers
decided to focus on youth culture. So the episodes have teenagers, British pop-stars, Dick Clark, shyster talent managers, coffee houses replete with '60's dancing, motorcycles, fast cars, & surfing references. Raymond Burr is still the greatest, however he has gained considerable weight & his hair has been plastered down on his head. If anything, he looks like he's preparing for the infinitely-inferior "Ironsides" series.

While it's interesting to see the one episode shot in color, I feel it's perhaps the worst show of all 9 seasons.
Of course, pandering to a younger audience, it deals with juvenile delinquents & car theft. The whole thing feels strained & Perry & Della seem out of place in a pedestrian teen drama. The other episode people either love or despise is the one where Raymond Burr plays Perry Mason, & also a drunken, loud seaman, as a kind of doppleganger. I find this episode incredibly tiresome w/ hammy overacting, but it is amusing. Luckily, there are several episodes that involve the adult world (& better-quality, experienced actors). The golf club episode is a thing of malicious beauty. I guess if the show had gone another season, they would have had The Monkees & riots on the Sunset Strip. Though I love the late '60's, that world does not work in the more film noir B&W world of Perry Mason. Though unrealistic & with a repetitive formula involving last-minute courtroom confessions, PM is/was one of the best shows ever on television, due to the lead actors chemistry, guest character actors, the lighting, sets & locations. So glad to have 270 episodes to watch throughout my life.

If you get a sense of deja-vu watching this season, it's because about one third of the episodes are re-makes of episodes from the first two seasons.
