Stories in this first season half were not as well written as usual.

Some of the plots went astray and ended too abruptly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad sound, avoidable errors Aug. 30 2012
By Will Alex - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Hello, I have only watched three episodes of this instalment so far, but I have noticed poor sound quality (brittle, harsh). Also, the credits on Episode 1 are from another episode and the order of the episodes on this first disk are out of sequence (Episode 2 on the disk was actually Episode 4 when it originally ran). Given that we pay a premium price for just half a season, I find second-rate quality unacceptable. Boo to CBS.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad sound engineering :-( Aug. 27 2012
By Joel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This set continues the generally splendid remastering and restoration of the wonderful Perry Mason series, which is as much fun decades later as I remember it being when it was new. All highly recommended.

But starting with this set (and I hope it's not a trend), the sound engineering as taken a terrible turn. (1) The sound frequently has a brittle, hard-edged quality that makes some of the actors' voices truly unpleasant. (2) Even worse, the difference in volume between the spoken dialogue and the (wonderfully melodramatic) musical "commentary" is so huge that you can't leave the volume on a single setting through the episode. Who decided that the musical soundtrack had to be BLASTING in an otherwise acoustically rather demure soundtrack (which would be appropriate for the historical period). I'm not overdoing authenticity here -- I'm complaining about unnecessary physical discomfort, and annoyance at having to fiddle with volume multiple times during an episode.

Phooey!

(My two stars is admittedly punitive; but I know of no other way to protest the bad engineering.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the standard July 24 2012
By Stratiotes Doxha Theon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Intelligent writing and superb acting made this series the standard by which all courtroom/crime drama is measured to this day. Noir enthusiasts will appreciate the intricate and ever shifting plots coupled with intense drama that will draw you in quickly and not let you go. From the moment I hear the opening music I am drawn in and held to the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Season 7, Volume 1 appears better than Season 6 Sept. 24 2012
By Larry Dell of Sacramento, CA - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The writing for Season 7 Volume 1 (Volume 2 not having been issued yet) appears to be better than what we saw in Season 6, in which some episodes Raymond Burr did not even appear. It is sad to see so fewer appearances of Ray Collins as Lt. Tragg, but his health was apparently declining considerably by then and he just couldn't do much anymore.

A pleasant nuance is that in some episodes of Season 7, Vol. 1 there is also displayed an occasional renewed collegiality between District Atty Burger and Perry Mason, which is refreshing, and a nice departure from his hitherto usual "take no prisoners" and "the hell with fairness and truth" approach he seemed to have with regard to practicing law for most of the series. (Sad result of that past approach today: the numerous wrongly-convicted prisoners who are now freed from time to time due to DNA proving their innocence, only to have the former prosecutor, who is more often than not now a judge himself, be interviewed by a reporter and arrogantly offer no apology for the terrible injustice due to his likely past manipulation or hiding of exculpating evidence, but moreover proclaiming that he still feels the jury made the right decision!)

It was a great television series that was first shown when I was too young to appreciate, but for which I and my wife are most grateful we can enjoy today on DVD. We have all of the seasons issued on DVD so far; and we are looking forward to Vol. 2 of Season 7 to be released in late October 2012.
