We often tune into MeTV at night for a small serving of Perry Mason . We rarely watch a full episode, and we rarely follow the plot. Mason , as we I insist on calling the show, is all about atmosphere: car telephones, clothing, furniture, hairdos, office accoutrements. And it’s about television. MeTV is MetaTV — and movies. For instance: the recent episode “The Case of the Mythical Monkeys” (first aired February 27, 1960) brings together Barbara Harper Douglas, Mrs. Steve Douglas, of My Three Sons (Beverly Garland), Nurse Ratched of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (Louise Fletcher), and Stanley Roper, Mr. Roper, of Three’s Company (Norman Fell). Dig we must.

Yes! We must have the same schedule. (I think it varies here and there.)
