Perception > Perception Series Premiere Review: What Did You Think? > Comments Page 2
THIS IS THE END OF MY COMMENT WRITTEN RIGHT BELOW IN THE NEXT BOX
I GUESS IT WAS TOO LONG OF A COMMENT...
But I am not writing today because I an to talk of the cute actors or any other superficial interest but because I want to thank the writer(s) for an intelligent show that brings me new thoughts and ideas for my own teaching. I teach fine arts in a high school and something in the last episode striked me as a solution or at least a path for a solution to a problem that has raised between some of my students.
TO WRITE INTELLIGENTLY AND CONTINUE TO BRING US TO RETHINK OUR ETHICAL AND MORAL CODES THAT WE ARE SO EAGER TO IMPOSE UPON OTHERS FOR OUR OWN LITTLE INDIVIDUAL COMFORT.
MERCI MILLE FOIS, lUCIE MEILLEUR,
n.b. Please disregard my english mistakes .
I am french canadian, but I enjoy looking at tv shows wether they're english or french as long as they're intelligent and that I am left whith something more in my life to use.
Being a reader more than a ''looker''I find myself to be very picky, so I like to beleive. So picky that for 18 years I have not owned a TV. I found that zapping throught all the crap that's on, was just a waist of my time. So, looking at the shows on line, in my time and preferences as allowed me to have more time to myself and my passions. And therefore when I like a show I am willing to take the time to thank the people who created them ''.PERCEPTION'' is one of them. In fact,lately I've been finding myself waiting for the next episode. That amazes me, for it's been years I had this feeling.
But I am not writing today because I an to talk of the cute actors or any other superficial interest but because I w
Fantastic. Surprising, complex, inspiring writing and a great choice in Eric McCormack. Is there any other way to support the show's continued production?
Great show. Love Eric. He 'has it!!!!
I LOVE this show! It is truly amazing and Eric McCormack plays the role of Pierce so well. I watched all the seasons of Will&Grace and I think he is a much better actor in this. The show constantly keeps me wanting to watch more and more!
THE BEST FREAKING SHOW EVER!!!! McCormack is SUPERB! Cannot get enough of this show. I would also love them allowing Eric to do more "in-class," as I find those particular scenes fascinating. PLEASE do not cancel! Eric - please do not leave - best freaking character to-date for you!
Finally an atheist in charge calling out the superstitious nonsense that talking to invisible men in the sky produces. Debunking the myth that homosexuality is an illness that can be cured. Getting cured in a hospital and instead of thanking the doctors to suddenly get on hands and knees in front of them and thanking the invisible man in the sky is insulting. Finally logic above this god in every sentence in american shows.
Love, love, love Eric McCormack in this new, interesting show. Hope the powers that be will keep it on the air. Usually when you like a good show it is removed from the line up. Here's hoping this doesn't happen.
Awesome show - Eric McCormick is fabulous. I can't get enough.
Good concept...characters well thought out..good casting except FBI female agent. What is she 12? It makes it hard to get into the show when one of the main characters appears so very very young. Very distracting. Eric McCormack is excellent.
I am a HUGE fan of this show!! I always loved Eric McCormack as a comedic actor and had no idea of his scope. He is absolutely amazing in this role and the other cast members are great. Having had a family member with the same mental illness, I know it is a terrible thing to have to live with but seeing that someone can actually manage some positives in spite of it is very captivating to watch. Sure some of it is a little romantisized and sometimes a little convenient but it is a t.v. show afterall.....it has to be entertaining.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this show and can't wait to watch each week. I love how we are now starting to unravel Dr. Pierce's backstory.
Can't say enough good things about this show.....hope it has a long run!!
I thought Perception was the best show this season. Te role of Dr. Pierce fit Eeric McCormack very well, and i didn't realize how talented he is. I got alot out of the program especialy the lecture scenes at the beginning and the end of the episodes. It has even sparked an interest in neuroscience to add to the topics i have to go back for school for forensics science. I can't say enough how much i liked this series. Again it is one of the best i've seen in a long time. and i've told all my friends (and acquaintances) about it and hoped they watched it. I also hope that perception is a series that will continue with new episodes in november like other tnt sseries, ie rizzoliand iles and others.
I love this show. I hope it has a long run.
Just watched the pilot. I work in neurology AND I've worked in schizophrenia research. I'm impressed with how well McCormack plays the person with schizophrenia. I just wish that the show was about more. The schizophrenia helped him more with the case than the fact that he's a brilliant neuroscientist. I'm hoping his expertise is worked into the show a bit more.
The comments concern me about future episodes. It is possible for a show to question both God and science without being insulting to either. You know, some of us actually believe in both. Take the X-Files, for example. That show questioned everything about everything, aliens, science, God, and did it all without offending anyone on either side. The show Bones has a character who thinks God is a ridiculous concept and another who is serious about his faith. Again, not insulting or offensive to either party. It can be done.
Interesting season opener, I think Eric McCormack plays the part extremely well. Some good characters in the show. Forces one to think about mental illness in a different light, makes you wonder how and why. Who is normal, are we under a misconception about our mental state of mind at times and what makes us do the things we do. Interesting topic, hope the show continues to actually show people with different neurological capacities when it comes to brain function. Thats where I think the show could make a go of it. We already have lots of cop shows. Keep it interesting......
love the show it goes with the mentalist
My husband and I love the show. We enjoy very much wathing Mr. Burton and Mr. McCormick performances in the show. Now, the character that Ms.Cook plays, does it have to wear fancy clothes and HIGH HEEL SHOES when she is running after a suspect? Dosn't look believeable, this kind of kills the momentum. Good luck with the show!!!!!!!!!
I was a fan until the last episode about the young man who talked to God. I don't mind a character being an aethiest, but using crude language when speaking of Him is very distressing. I won't be watching any more episodes.
As someone who has dealt with their own mental illness there is nothing glamorous or sexy about it. Anyone who has done battle with their own mind will tell you that. Shows and movies often glamorize mental illnesses by romanticizing it. If you like the show, by all means watch, just don't look to much into it for a true view of what it's like.
I find the leads compelling, but the stories are weak and exploitative. Watching the final act inside an interrogation room last night was boring and almost made me turn the TV off.
Really? You want tv without "sex, politics, and social issues"? I have not yet had the chance to watch this show - perhaps it truly is ill-judged - but I know I don't want tv to be so blandly innocuous. I want it to be relevant. Actually, I want it to be fiercely intelligent, visually innovative, and challenging in ways I didn't expect, even if I don't agree with its opinions. It is ok to listen to opinions that you don't agree with! These comments make me sad.
It's funny how the comments for this show started out fairly positive, and as the season goes on, more and more viewers are becoming disenchanted. Guess what? They don't like hearing faith bashed, and God ridiculed. They are sick of hearing there is something wrong with them because they believe something is wrong with homosexuality. You'd think these programs would get the idea and leave politics and social issues out. Comparisons of Perception to Monk forget that the latter program was unfailing about not putting sex, politics and social issues into its programs, and that accounts for much of its success.
It's not leftist agenda, it's science. Pure and simple.
The gay crap has to go!!!!!
Sorry guys, you lost me with the God bashing and then two guys kissing.
I know this is "ground breaking" but I don't want my ground broken.
We won't be watching anymore.
