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.
