Substantial Sunday: S5 Episode 16 “The Sins of Castle Cove”

"This sort of filth shouldn’t be allowed in print!"

"Obviously I haven’t gotten to the good part."

This episode is preppy perfection. Seth and J.B. stick to American sportswear classics. Bonus points for excellent use of collared shirt layering and plaids.

The gossip is hot in Loretta’s Beauty Parlor.

The Sins of Castle Cove is basically a perfect episode of MSW.

" You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into the Twilight Zone…"

Erle Stanley Gardner (right) with Raymond Burr (left and above) on the July 4, 1964 issue of TV Guide.  Burr starred as Perry Mason in the TV series based on Gardner’s novels from 1957 to 1966, and he reprised the role for 26 TV movies from 1985 to 1993.

There had been a Perry Mason radio series, though it was more soap opera than mystery.  Gardner was disappointed with the radio series and with a series of Warner Brothers films featuring Mason in the 1930s.  He formed his own production company, Paisano Productions, and produced the Mason TV series.  Today, the series is still in syndication and regarded as a classic.

Been watching Perry Mason on MeTV and Hallmark Movie Channel. Love it.

September 15, 1971: American detective mystery series “Columbo”, premieres on NBC Television.  
The show popularized the inverted detective story format. Almost every episode began by showing the commission of the crime and its perpetrator. The series has no “whodunit” element. The plot mainly revolves around how the perpetrator, whose identity is already known to the audience, will finally be caught and exposed.
