I got Perry Mason.
By some of my answers I thought I might get Ben Matlock.
But I think it was the "professional" answer that got me Perry.

Sorry but after 10 years or so of playing set up man for Barney Fife and his crazy antics, I never bought the Matlock role for Andy and dismissed it as pap. No comparison in his miscast effort to dethrone or update Perry Mason. Raymond Burr had Erle Stanley Gardner’s super lawyer PM down pat. Thjs show had fans dying to know if Perry was sleeping with his go to paralegal and numero uno assistant Della Street, who was always immaculately styled and wearing the latest Paris fashions in their high class LA skyscraper office. Or was it Paul Drake who was making the score? What a stiff, decked out in those checked sportscoats, smoking Winstons like a chimney and always hopping in or out of a convertible Thunderbird. Perpetually confounding and out dueling the world’s losingest prosecutor ever, Ham(ilton) Burger, Perry always wound up his post-victory huddles with his team in some posh bar or restaurant, recapitulating the clue that broke the case and won the day! The big unknown it seems in almost every episode was: who took Della home, Perry or Paul?

Lt. Tragg. It was always Lt. tragg.
I read somewhere recently that the guy playing paul drake was originally picked for the part of mason.anybody know anything more of that.

I got Matlock. But I would much prefer Perry Mason & #1 detective, Paul Drake working on my case.

Forgot to mention that at least Perry had different suits to wear. Where as Matlock wore the same damn suit all the time. Couldn't he afford a wardrobe??

I got Perry Mason. A little surprising, but oh well.

The new Matlock with Kathy Bates as Matlock is a sacrilege.

If I won - then the $$$ I would get would be spent on a steak din din for the whole gang (hell even H Burger and Tragg) but then a slow dance with Della....
