Full seasons with full
For the money we pay for prime each month, we should get all seasons with full episodes. Very disappointing

Bait and Switch
I love watching Perry Mason. I started watching Perry Mason Season 1. I got through 25 episodes and someone at Amazon decided it was not available on Prime anymore, I would have to purchase CBS All Access to watch it anymore. Customer abuse!

Greed lives
How completely rotten that all seasons of Perry Mason were taken off of prime WITH NO WARNING and now a subscription is required through CBS who is just trying to cash in on the boomers. I am so disgusted with the greediness.

Better Than I Remembered
Verified purchase
I watched these decades ago and loved them as a kid. I was psyched to see them on Prime video as I haven’t seen any episodes in many decades. Usually when that happens I’m kind of disappointed since ancient TV often doesn’t hold up so well, especially drama. I was amazed at how good they are, if anything even better than I remembered. I especially like the early seasons where many of the episodes are based on plots from the novels and the plots aren’t as formulaic as in later seasons. Although I just started the final season (a great opener with a Chinatown like story about politics and control of a newspaper) and they are still great. The whole cast is fantastic but Raymond Burr especially so. I dug up some of Gardner’s novels and Burr really embodies the character of Mason to perfection. I only hope Amazon gets the Ironsides series as well, I want to see more of Burr and some of those stories were written by Jim Thompson one of my favorite American authors.

Not viewable with Amazon Prime any longer?
I was watching this with my mom, who grew up watching Perry Mason and all the sudden it's only available with CBS All Access.. Then I buy that and it "can't be viewed on this device". Bah! My mom is wheelchair bound and I can't get her to my place to watch it. On top of that you offer less seasons than CBS All Access does.

I hope this gets fixed.

Pathetic corporate greed--again.
Acquiring Perry Mason and making episodes available to Prime members, then a few months later requiring a subscription to CBS, is a ridiculously transparent strategy. If this was CBS's game plan, then Amazon should not have agreed to it. It's nothing more than--as one reviewer accurately described it--a "bait and switch." Well, this guarantees that I will never subscribe to CBS All-access. Hopefully, other Perry Mason fans will do the same.

Holds up even after 60 years
It's surprising to watch these episodes and find that they are more interesting, more engaging, and more sophisticated than current offerings on television. We've lost something in the way of good storytelling. I have only watched the first season, but I can say it's refreshing to see adults behaving as adults and listen to conversation that's intelligent and free of laugh tracks or overly emotional conflict. Even some of the outmoded gender stereotypes don't spoil the overall quality of the program. For its era, the show does pretty well with women's roles. And Della Street always holds her own.

Top of the line TV drama
Perry Mason is a show of creative story lines that keep you guessing. What's more, it's a fascinating glimpse into second-generation TV programs, when the competition was based on plot and intrigue and less on copycat styling. Perry Mason was one of the originals, setting that style for years to come. It's an hour-long show with 53 minutes of actual program, rather than today's 44 minutes per hour. Plus, there are 39 episodes in the first season alone. Sure, it's black and white, but after ten minutes, you won't even notice. And that theme song, itself, is a classic, written specifically for the show, a jazz-noir piece with few equals in the TV theme genre.
