Why do they always cancel the best shows? Yet reality programs that get more braindead each year get season after season. You'd think they would keep the shows that people enjoy to keep getting ratings instead of cancelling favourite programs and pushing people away. Lets just hope they realise what a mistake they made or another station picks it up.
Ever since the series was cancelled i thought we would be left hanging .Now at last we may get an end to the story ,Unlike so many series that are cancelled with out warning .It seems that the station rely to much on viewing figures and do not take into account people who watch on catchup or record to watch later .Anyway with luck we will get some sort of closure.
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?
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.
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.
