Perry Mason [Returns]

Postby Festeron » Mon Feb 06, 2017 2:55 pm

The TV series Perry Mason http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=70589&lid=7 with Raymond Burr ran for nine seasons back in the late 50s and early 60s. After a long gap it was revised as a sporadic series of TV movies from 1985-1995.

TheTVDB lists these extended episodes both as Specials on the original as well as a separate title Perry Mason Returns http://thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seriesid=263292&seasonid=522687&lid=7". It seems that several of the episode dates in the "Specials" are quite wrong.

If there was a gap of 20 years between the series, and the title changed [even though some of the principle cast returned], shouldn't it be a new title, and not listed under the older title as Specials?

What is the policy here, and how should it be applied?

Bump.

Hopefully this will be fixed before the two-year anniversary of my pointing it out.

Sadly, it was not.
