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.
