    Deception Series Premiere Review: Lighten Up, Deception!

    NBC's new whodunit tries to replicate the devious fun of Revenge, but takes itself way too seriously.

  • Episode Summary

    No one was surprised when the wealthy socialite and drug addict Vivian Bowers was found dead of an overdose, except for FBI agent Will Moreno. He is convinced that the death was a homicide, and that someone in Vivian's family did it. He gets help from Detective Joanna Locasto, who at one point had been Vivian's best friend. When Joanna attends the funeral, the family embraces her, offering her a place to stay. She then begins to undercover secrets about how Vivian died, putting herself in danger.

      I gotta say that I was pleasantly surprised. After expecting literally nothing (the reviews were less than flattering) it kept me entertained for an entire episode. Sure, there were weaker moments and it's safe to say that the acting is not the best but keep in mind that almost every pilot winds up being one of the weakest episodes of the particular show ever. NBC has been in a desperate need of a hit show ever since 2004 and while this one certainly isn't one in the ratings (only 5.66 million viewers and 2.0/5 in demo) it can still be a great one season wonder. I don't see how they could stretch the mystery murder for more than 13 episodes anyway. Just look what happened to ABC's Revenge this year. Sometimes less is really more. [8.0/10]moreless
