Your Honor, the Defense will stipulate as to the fact that a release date of Tue, 21 November, Two Thousand Six is germane to these proceedings and is acceptable with my client. Furthermore, the Defense will enter Petition #09201958 requesting that Season 2 be combined into a single box set.
(obviously, I'm a big PM fan. The "Petition" # is the airdate of the 1st Ep from S2)

The DDD Nov. 20% sale ends 11/18/06 so with a 11/21 release, the PERRY MASON combo pack of S1, or S1 Vol.2 alone are not part of the sale. (Even though S1 Vol.2 is 'in the building' and has been shipped out yesterday for release date arrival).
Perry Mason was black and white its entire run Parker. The only exception was 1 episode shot in color during its later years. It was an experiment that really didnt add a thing to the show, except of course color. The episode was not one of the shows best.
Not much to say after watching two episodes from Vol.2, they look good but at times the theme song can sound a bit grating, otherwise , more courtroom drama. It would have been nice to keep the two volumes looking the same - this one is an orange/brown as opposed to the blue on Vol. 1 - mind you, one can more easily identify them. I love nitpicking. And you get 20 episodes vs 19 from Vol.1, now that's a bargain!
Well, the deepdiscount 20% off sale has been extended to 11/23, so, on 11/21, you should be able to order Perry Mason S1-Vol.2 for $29.05 or S1 complete for $51.69.
Was the single Perry Mason color episode, broadcast in color during the original CBS run? I have never seen it. I see it's listed as episode #262 of 271 shows. I thought I read somewhere, that the color show was the last one filmed and that Raymond Burr thought the extra lighting for color was too hot and uncomfortable for him and that was why he did not want to continue for another season. (CBS (and ABC), I think, went full color in prime time for the 1966-67 season, so black and white was no longer an option for Perry Mason.)
