|Robert Reed and E. G. Marshall|
Lawrence Preston (E. G. Marshall) and his son Kenneth (Robert Reed) are partners in a law firm that represents criminal defendants. The show lasted for four seasons and won numerous awards and accolades. Only the first season has been transferred to DVD and it gives a good taste of the series' good and bad points. Marshall and Reed are both excellent as the highly dignified if personable Lawrence and his comparatively hot-headed son. The interplay between the two, which is often quite argumentative, is one of the best things about the show.

|"The Attack:" Marchand, Barbara Barrie, Kiley|
Verdict: Some very good scripts, but not nearly as much fun nor as classy as Perry Mason. **3/4.
