Perry Mason's Della Street and The Modern "Trinity Syndrome"
HBO's reboot of Erle Stanley Gardner's Perry Mason uncovered a widespread fan base this summer, with over 8 million viewers eager to know how the sloppy, imperfect investigator-turned-lawyer will crack his first case. The show's success, in part, is to the modern, socially-conscious updates they made since the original show aired from 1957-1966. The casting of talented black actor Chris Chalk brought a new depth and point-of-view for the Paul Drake character, and giving split-main focus to grieving mother Emily Dodson and evangelist preacher/performer Sister Alice (played by Gale Rankin and Tatiana Manslay, respectively) brought two truly interesting, imperfect female characters to the limelight.

I’m standing under the ‘Cake Mix’ sign in a Jewel-Osco aisle trying not to have a meltdown or pee, both of which I desperately need to do. First, vanilla or chocolate? Funfetti? She never likes anything. Should I even make a cake or just get the cake mix for cupcakes? Can you make brownies with cake mix? Because brownies would be more casual. After that, THIS is the trick right here. She’s not even going to come, so you make as well pick something you like since you’re the one going to be cry-eating it alone tomorrow night reading her texts full of lies and bad excuses. And of course, why don’t they more prominently display where the restrooms are in this place??? I have 10 minutes left to finish this errand, $13.20 in my bank account, and 3 hours until Mallory presumably arrives at O-Hare Airport for her birthday weekend.
