Watching “Perry Mason”

June 11, 2016

I watched an episode of the great show, “Perry Mason” Thursday night and then fell asleep not watching the NHL playoff game.

In the episode shown on Decades, Raymond Burr as Perry Mason not only solves the case with a witness stand confession, but after offers a great pearl of wisdom.

Remember the show aired well over 50 years ago and his character said “Maybe we are hiding too much from our children.”

The kid immediately turns into a kid, somewhat rudely asking the investigator character “Paul Drake,” played by William Hopper, the son of famed gossip columnist Hedda Hopper, why he did not get the key clue?  It was borderline rude and his mother indicated such in calling his name, “Jimmy.”

That episode and the Twilight Zone with the all powerful kid and the corn field were warnings. Generation after generation, “what’s the matter with kids today.”
