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.

  • 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.
  • Extraordinary is what this show is!!!!

    I absolutely love Perception!! It gives me a positive outlook on mental illness because I have depressive bipolar disorder and social anxiety. I know what it's like to be locked inside your own mind and I love the way Dr. Pierce thinks. He has a brilliant mind and I love watching him figure things out.
  • One of the best shows EVER!!!

    This is one of the greatest shows I've seen in a long time. I love all the characters; Daniel Pierce is terrific, Agent Kate Moretti is wonderful and Scott Wolf as Donnie Ryan is the absolute BEST.

    I hope its on for a long time.

    And cantankerous is just that: CANTANKEROUS!!! hE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT.
  • Has this show changed format?

    Season one, and the first half of S2 had Dr. Daniel Pierce solving crimes as a consultant with the help of halucinations brought on by his illness, when the show returned this year he no longer seems to be hallucinating people giving him advice and ideas or at least not to the extent it was in the earlier episodes.

    I strill enjoy it even if it isn't the same show.moreless
