Take this Perry Mason Series Quiz to find out which character you are. We update the quiz regularly and it’s the most accurate among the other quizzes.

You’re probably here because HBO’s prequel series Perry Mason just aired on the premium channel, and you have questions. Rest assured, we do as well. But, in terms of the first episode, “Chapter One,” we can at least provide some answers. So, whether you need a synopsis of the important characters, the actors that play them, and their roles in the tale thus far, or if you just want to know what the heck is going on with that baby, you’ve come to the correct spot.

Editor’s Picks

Perry Mason, Ron Fitzgerald, and Rolin Jones’ latest prequel series transport viewers to the early 1930s, Los Angeles. The series explores the origins of American fiction’s most iconic criminal defense lawyer, based on characters invented by author Erle Stanley Gardner. However, when the case of the decade knocks on Mason’s door, his persistent pursuit of the truth shows a broken city and, just maybe, a road to forgiveness for himself. Also, you must try to play this Perry Mason Series Quiz.

Perry Mason Series Quiz

Mason (Matthew Rhys) is not a polished attorney when we meet him, but rather a low-rent private investigator who is tormented by his WWI experiences in France and enduring the effects of a shattered marriage. Mason hires Pete Strickland (Shea Whigham) as an extra set of eyes on his different investigations, and he looks to be his sole buddy in the world. But that isn’t where this story begins.

Perry Mason gets things started with a high-stakes ransom case: The Dodsons, Matthew (Nate Corddry), and Emily (Gayle Rankin), are kidnappers who have kidnapped their one-year-old baby Charlie hostage. Despite Matthew’s meager finances as a grocery store owner, and Emily as a stay-at-home mother, they are able to raise the $100,000 ransom in exchange for Charlie’s safe return. Except that when they run to the streetcar where baby Charlie has been abandoned, they discover him dead… with his eyelids stitched open to appearing alive from a distance. And this is when Perry Mason actually begins.

We get a beautiful shot of Ptomaine Tommy’s restaurant in Los Angeles, which puts us in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood (where you can pay 40 cents for 2 coffees and toast in 1931). Mason runs into Pete, who is engrossed in a pulpy serial in the newspaper. They’re following Chubby Carmichael (Bobby Gutierrez), a fairly large movie star, on the orders of a movie company head. Chubby’s lone offense appears to be going to see one of his own pictures in a theater, but Mason and Strickland, who are tailing him in Mason’s family dairy truck, soon track him down to a house full of bad repute.

About the quiz

Chubby enjoys stripping naked, coating a woman in food, then eating it off of her. After all, this is HBO. (Or perhaps he saves this for his co-star and upcoming Hollywood starlet, just referred to as “Red.”) What type of food is it? “Pumpkin pie, I understand,” Mason says afterward. Mason takes a few secret photos, but it’s not long until a naked, long-donged Chubby realizes what he’s doing and follows him down the street. Later, Mason tries to extort extra money from the studio head because he now has sexual images of their up-and-coming starlet. The man who hired him, on the other hand, will have to pass the request up the chain to his far more powerful employer.

We soon get to visit Mason’s family home, an old dairy farm divided in two by an airport runway. He is obliged to recite a password (in Spanish) to the gatekeeper who is impeding his progress, a recurring farce between the two. The increasingly unkempt Mason is visited at home by Elias Birchard “E.B.” Jonathan (John Lithgow). E.B. is a failing attorney and Mason’s semi-regular employer who offers the Private Eye a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but it remains to be seen if he’ll accept it (and if he’ll wear a good suit and tie without an egg mark on it).
