Show Summary

Dr. Daniel Pierce is a popular but eccentric and idiosyncratic professor with paranoid schizophrenia. He's a neuroscientist with an M.D. and a Ph.D. who possesses incredible insight into human behavior - especially strange human behavior. Dr. Pierce is sometimes recruited by the FBI to help solve complex cases. His FBI contact is former student Kate Moretti who had a crush on him when she was his student. Natalie Vincent who had a relationship with Daniel a long time ago has settled in as best friend. She helps by pointing out his faults and shortcomings and likes to give him a hard time.

  • "Perception" gone bad

    This show is one of my husband and my favorite shows because it puts a great spin to what would be just a regular crime show. We are so tired of those at the networks making horrible decisions on what they think is a popular show and what is not. I can think of other shows that we can't figure out how they are still on (one being Major Crimes, don't like the lead not even close to the brilliance of Perception). We are very disappointed with TNT. That is now two shows cancelled that we found very entertaining on the off and Franklin and what network to go to now?moreless
  • Brilliant and shouldn't be cancelled.

    I caught this show on catch up for season one watched the whole thing in a few days x It shows how struggling with something as overpowering as a mental illness does not have to be all that defines you. And I think the reason it should not have been cancelled is obvious because it challenges our perception of the world around us. It's brilliant, funny and every week I look forward to the challenge that each episode presents. It's well scripted and is shown by brilliant actors. I am outraged by the cancellation and am disappointed in the network for not recognizing the value it holds. We need more shows like this but more than that I would love this one to continue to be the one to open the door for those shows. Save Perception.moreless
  • we want it back

    Why did you discontinue the program "Perception"? The only series that

    challenges your views and thought processes! I do not know one person

    that did not thoroughly enjoy the show along with discussing the

    episodes and isn't upset that it's been cancelled! This program WAS NOT

    the usual obvious plot,but educated society of the brain and how it also let us into the mind of a person living and

    functioning with mental denying us this program more,"DUMBING

    DOWN OF AMERICANS"? Our viewing of TNT programs will diminish

    immediately along with many other viewers.moreless
  • What a Dumb Episode to End the Season On.

    The ending as a whole makes no sense. Daniel is blown up after going over to his dads girlfriends house as a favor.. Stupid , Stupid , Stupid..
  • About following the show since beggining

    I love this show: humorous and a bit critic to the way many look to mental ill people.

    This show does not make the pierce disease ridiculous and faces how schizophrenia can be scary.
