TVLINE | Perry ends up in prison for hiding the murder weapon, which shows just how far he would go to protect his clients. What made you decide to end the season with your main character behind bars?
BEGLER | Early on, Lydell says to Perry: “Even when you win, you lose.” And I think we loved turning that around by the end of the season, saying: Even though Perry sort of loses, he wins. Winning means that he understands what it means to fight now, and what it takes, and that imposter syndrome that exists at the beginning [of the season] is pretty much gone at the end, and he can hold his head high. He can put up that picture of him and his son. It’s almost a way to showcase: This is who I need to show what real justice is, what real morality is. I think he believes it in his heart, and I think that was what was really appealing to us. When we start the season, he’s a green lawyer. He’s still really brand new. So we couldn’t go like full-throttle on him into the Perry Mason that everybody expects, and so I think it’s taking this season to get there, which was important.
I never thought I could watch a Perry Mason that was not Raymond Burr but Matthew Rhys has done amazing with his character and I just love this show. I hope it continues.
Really nice finale
Excellent season and excellent finale! Hope it’s not the series finale.
I really enjoyed this season with a great finale. Im hoping for a season 3 ^^ i want to see more of Ginny and Perry in S03.
If they are gonna cancel this show, then it will be confirmed. They are high and dont know sh!t in what they are doing.
This is absolutely one of my favorite shows on television. I used to watch the original Perry Mason reruns when I was home from school sick so there is the nostalgia factor. They have taken this show and elevated it to an amazing level. I will keep watching this as long as they keep making it.
I liked the second season better than the first. I hope we get a third
Awesome series!! Please renew HBO.
We loved the first season and were looking forward to season two, but the first episode really turned us off. The writing was very expository and agenda-driven, not to mention anachronistic. We are both as liberal as they come but do not watch shows to be preached at. Very disappointed.
Your loss—you missed a great season of television.
And by the way, with the exception of a too-early reference to a Japanese oil embargo, there was nothing anachronistic. Time to crack open a history book.
I do hope there is a third season. I have been a fan of Matthew Rhys for a long time and this is a great role for him.
Have watched old Perry years ago . Finding the new series excellent viewing. The characters are believable. It would disappointing if the series isn’t continuing. Nice for viewers asked for their comments.
I would like to continue watching Perry and Della and other members of the series.
