Our now-regular "retro retro" show, one looking at a TV series from the "Silver Age" or the 1950s/1960s, is a popular new feature on our BOTNS podcast schedule. This season we talked about CBS' long-running classic legal drama Perry Mason, covering the history of the series and talking about the original novels and even The New Perry Mason as we focused on the show's fourth-season opener, "The Case of the Treacherous Toupee." A young Robert Redford is among the guest cast in a fun Mason installment. We had a great time exploring the world of Perry Mason and hope that you continue to enjoy these steps outside our "official" time frame.
Anonymous Batty Insider says: "It's obvious the guys enjoy Perry Mason, but it'll be interesting to see how the Batty committee handles it. Is it fair to throw an older show in there against the usual Seventies and Eighties stuff? I'm not saying it is or isn't, just that the question is going to be asked. Another factor might be the disappearance of the show from FreeVee, which might give the guys some residual anger. If everyone gets past those issues, this could be a big-time Battys player."
