Perception > Perception Series Premiere Review: What Did You Think? > Comments Page 3
Well, i found it somewhat "monkish" but with not so much style. The writers have obvious left wing bend and a need to make social statemnts and share their atheist opinions, which was annoying. When they had the gay couple makng out and kissing on prime time tv this week, it was too much. The show is just trashy. I will not be watching it anymore.
Too predictable! Drama with a worn-out agenda! I lost interest early in the show but continued to watch hoping it would improve. It didn't, so I turned it off and will not be watching again.
I think Eric McCormack is good in this series, but I think this will fail because the FBI agent is just a terrible actress. She's killing the potential of the show.
I liked it until your writers decided to push the homosexuality agenda again. So sick of the Hollywood homosexuality agenda. I'm not putting up with any more of shows that push that crap. And I won't buy any products associated with your show.
This show is too preachy. I do not like their "cause" of the week. Very irritating. And none too subtle either. This weeks cause was homosexuality.
How a bad therapist was trying to "cure" gays and gasp how wrong he was and he was gay himself. Oh my! How many procedural shows have already done this same story line?
Last weeks was how stupid people believe in God, and take everyone's money, and one "cult" member is a crook and is going to take off with all the money and so forth. Yawn... hello old Law and Order episodes with a weirdo professor and his imaginary friends helping him solve the crime.
I give this a 2.
after the insults to God I will no longer watch. How dredful this was allowed to air! I am truly amamazed that Eric would allow his character to say these words!
I get distracted by his scruffiness. The scarves, turned up collars and unshaven look is too much. Tone it down. I can't say I liked the first two shows, but I'm giving it a chance.
That was a premier only? I thought it was on tonight at 10pm - really disappointing. When will we know if it's going to be scheduled?
I have only seen the show one time, and I cannot wait for the series to start! It's refreshing to finally see a show that deals with mental illness in a whole new light. Bravo! Bravo! I found it absolutely tantalizing! Thank you.
Eric McCormack is great and very believable; however, you have got to get another FBI agent. It seems that she can't EVER do her job without him. She also comes across ditzy and stiff at the same time. She is NOT believable. Neither is her FBI side kick. They are not professional enough.
Find someone new to support Daniel's great acting.
You also need to work on the writing or you are only going to last one season.
I too was offended by the language and calling the God of Creation horrible names. This is blasphemy and certainly over the line. I too may not be able to watch this show again and may contact the sponsors and let them know how offensive this was.
I agree with Kim, I was really enjoying this new series until he said what he said about God. I hate it, but last night is my last time to watch this show. Such a shame...
I really like this show. However, last night when he called God an a**hole......my heart sank! I waited til the end of the show to see if he apologized to God for that or recanted.....but he didn't. Now I will no longer watch this show.
LAST NIGHT ERIC SAID THAT GOD WAS AN ASSHOLE. AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED THAT MAKES HIM ONE AND WE WILL NO LONGER WATCH.
I really enjoy the show. Yes he dosen't take his meds which is not reccommened. What I'm happy to see a show that depects a person with mental illness as a valuable person to the community. Not the usaual depiction of a person with this aliment some one that can't take care of himself, let alone work and deal with his condition. Keep more shows like this.
I enjoyed the pilot and was looking forward to enjoying the series. But the writing just keeps getting worse from one episode to the next. Tired plots and dialogue, one cliche after another. The plot lines are almost as intellectually insulting as 'Monks.' The writing is so bad I can't enjoy the actors, who I like, and it destroys any interest in the behavior of this variation of the 'tortured genius.' Very disappointed.
FINALLY...AN INTELLIGENT AND INNOVATIVE TELEVISION SHOW THAT DOES SOMETHING BESIDES PANDER TO IDIOTS!!!!
WITH ALL THE MOVIE REMAKES, I WAS SERIOUSLY DOUBTING THE ABILITY OF SCRIPT WRITERS IN GENERAL BUT, THANK GOODNESS, AS LEAST THIS TV SHOW SCRIPT SPARKLES WITH WELCOME INTELLIGENT THOUGHT!!
GREAT! FANTASTIC!! AMAZING!!! WRITTING. . . is incredible with twists you never see coming. WHO are these people who don't like this show...oh right, probably the same people who like The Mentalist BUT . . . didn't like Lie to Me!
While I am a fan of McCormack, the show is a poor montage of Monk, The Mentalist and A Beautiful Mind. It also makes light of a serious mental health issue. He doesn't take his meds because it reduces his "abilities"???? OMG, I hope and pray that my daughter, who is a victim of schizophrenia, does not ever watch this program.
I thought it was a good show, yes silly at times, but good. Funny too, Daniel(to me) is a likeable character i hardly watch tv due to the lack of good shows, and i look forward to more episodes of Perception.
I think the show is good but a show based in the field of psychiatry should be a little more accurate. You don't give 20ccs of valium and we don't say "commatose" we say "comatose" They should have a better consultant. Otherwise I like the show. And I agree with the above writer who says the character is tortured. That is very accurate.
Enjoy the show EXCEPT that the woman cop mumbles and is very hard to understand. (Same problem with the show NUMB3RS where EVERYONE mumbles.)
The only negitave comments about the show had to do with politics. people get off your high horse and stop being so defensive. Look if we cant make fun of our presidents in tv shows without it having a clear defined one sided message then that doesn't leave much room for creativity because writers will constantly be having to tip toe around politics in their scripts. your seeing what you want to see, you might as well be pointing out things that arent actually there!
Why is this being compared to Monk and The Mentalist? These are three completely different shows.. or at the very least three completely different characters.. and the tones of the show are vastly different. Monk was cartoonish at best. the Mentalist was great, the first season, decent the next and terrible now.. I love Patrick Jane but the show has deteriorated.. this show is compelling and makes us think.. not a parlor trick, but a real look at what the mind is capable of, whether good or bad.. I like a show that makes me think, ponder life and all that it comprises. Monk, The Mentalist, Lie to Me and anything else you can think of does not do that.. This does.. I hope it lasts.
I like the show- loved the first episode, the second one was not as good, but I still think it is in the introduction phase.. My husband is a neurologist and functioning schizophrenia is real. I disagree with Linda that they are saying he excells because of his illness- quite the opposite-he is tortured, he does not know what is real and what is not.. Erik McCormack is doing a great job!! Can't wait to see how it plays out
