    Yep, Mason season 2 started out good. Slow, but steady as usual.
    I think this is the first time that I saw Sean Astin playing a completely despicable human being. He must be back later on in the series, you don't cast him for just those few minutes, right?

    Good Wife seasons six and seven.
    I think I'd have to vote for Frank Prady myself.
    Coming right in the twilight of the golden centrist era, it kind of funny to see all the attempts of their campaigns to appeal to the center right. Eerily accurate. They've got Peter out here knocking unions because they feel it'll sell well.
    Meanwhile Diane is being goaded into taking on the right to choose from side angles by Debate Me Bro conservatives.
    Might watch Brain Dead after finishing The Good Wife since that's what came next, or maybe concurrent to these last seasons.
    I liked it back when it aired, but it may also have aged oddly being politics satire right politcal satire died in a car crash.

    I remember the build up, and I remember thinking Matthew Rhys is an excellent choice for the role, and then it came out and I instantly forgot about it. So yeah, samesies

    I went in skeptical, didn't think Perry Mason of all people needed a gritty origin story.

    But it turns out it's just a really good, old-school, surprisingly-melancholy, Raymond-Chandler's-Los-Angeles noir story. It's more LA Confidential and Chinatown than it is... Well, Perry Mason. I reckon that you, specifically, would find quite a bit to love.

    And not for nothing in a time when sex scenes in media are being Discoursed about, but the show has one of my favorites I've ever seen. Two characters who are embroiled in an ongoing fling, one where they're both secretly really invested in how much they aren't invested, where they're like bonded over how much they both don't "need" this, it's very noir, it rules. Anyways, they're fuckin', and they hump their way into the crevasse between the wall and the bed. It's clumsy, it's funny, it's still a little sexy. It's one of the most grounded and relatable things I've ever seen, and it's also spinning right on a thematic axis of, "This is a show about people being messy and human, and not just in ways that are Cool or Dark, in every way."

    Had Perry Mason mixed together with Matlock in my head, so that description seemed very weird for a second
