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.
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 like McCormack and all the other players as well, except for the FBI Agent. She has such a wimpy voice it drives me up a wall everytime she opens her mouth. I'm sorry, but that's my opinion. This show needs someone stronger in that role. An FBI agent has to be tough not whispering all the time and hard to comprehend. Last night I switched to another program because I couldn't stand her. Sorry Eric.
I hope this show stays with us for many many seasons. It is witty, unusal, charming, interesting and engaging. It is rare to see something "new" (even though they are following many proven formulas here) in today's TV.
never written something like this the hairstylist for Rachel Leigh get a clue. Her hair always looks terrible! It's always put in a ponytail in a style that NO ONE wears anymore. She's a young, beautiful you give her a modern hair with the times hair stylist!
I had been waiting for ages it seems for Perception to start season 2. I think the premise of this show is different and has real promise. The last episodes of season 1 just got better and better. I enjoyed the episode, but it seems to be lacking something to set it apart from all of the other procedural shows. I think the acting is fine, but the writing needs to be stepped up. There are so many quirky cop dramas out there that it is going to be hard separate from the pack. I think the real story should be about how Daniel copes with his hallucinations and how he relates to other people. I think Arjay could play a larger role in keeping Daniel in touch with reality and he has real comedic flair. I like the enigma Daniel faces in trying to keep both the real Caroline and the imagined Natalie in his life. I love the classroom scenes that tie it together. I just don't know where Rachel fits in. Daniel as a schizophrenic, is not working. Even the most functional schizophrenics have other issues like social anxiety, which Daniel showed in the first few episodes, but has since seemed to not be that much of a problem now. The antipsychotics tend to be sedating and control hallucinations, but they cannot rewire the brain and control the way people think. Daniel should not be so well adjusted and on those drugs he should be barely able to stand still.
I really love this show. The characters are great and the plot is original which is hard to say about a crime drama. The start was a little slow, but around the third episode it really picks up and once you see the last two episodes you are going to be so happy you started watching this series. I can't wait 'til it returns.
After watching this TV drama we learned that while on a blood thinner coumadin you cannot eat omega 3oils Found out that my blood was too thin and was on my way to a stroke. Thank you perception for putting real life situations in your show. :-). Great Show 100%
Nice to be able to see someone with a mental illness as the protagonist for a change - not just as the unwitting villains on Criminal Minds and CSI. And to those freaking out about the untreated illness thing: the choice to take meds or not is just that, a choice.
I DVR this show because it's on past my bed time. And consistently, I'm either not interested enough to watch it all the way through or I erase it without watching it. I like the premise but there's something missing - or too much of something. I definitely disagree with the casting of the FBI agent's character.
