Perception > Perception Season Finale Review: Nothing But The Truth > Comments Page 2
Lewicki is the best part of the show. The FBI agents are too young to have that amount of authority. An interesting show but I have no desire to change my schedule to watch.
Isn't it crazy that the craziest guy of this crazy finale was only shown on screen for about 3 minutes? The kid who was told that he should kill a guy to get the FBI's attention and he just went ahead and did it.
I am absolutely in love with this series. The way they handle the mental illnesses portrayed is so honest and real. They've crossed quite a few boundaries in this show and have gone where other shows don't seem to have the guts to go. I cannot wait for season two!
Great season finale, and I was riveted when Daniel discovered that Natalie was real, just not his relationship with her...it was tender and subtle and sad and wonderful...I really felt for Daniel and his disability.
The fact that he can still solve cases and teach when he is on medication for mental illness is a testament to his genius.
Anyway, I can't wait for season 2!
Eric McCormack is fantastic in this series. Great finale....can't wait for next season.
I am liking the show more and more but am still irritated by his perpetual turned up collar and scarf. Is this something all paranoid schitzos do, or is it his caracature. I wish the lighting wasn't so non-existent. I would like a little more light and maybe a shave.
Thinks for the great recap it is spot on with my sentiments. The first half of the ten episodes were pretty routine, but when Pierce refused to take his meds, we headed into darker more satisfying territory. The thing that really works for me is that the series does not sugar coat the illness. It laid out Pierce's vulnerabilities without being on the meds, and showed how he could be stronger with them. The Natalie revelation was heartbreaking, but I truly hope that Pierce and Caroline can strike up friendship that may one day lead to romance. I think the two of them are a match, and I really want him to stay platonic with his FBI cronies.
This show keeps getting better, can't wait for Season 2!
This show has only gotten better as the season progressed. Eric McCormich is
fantastic as Daniel Pierce. Can't wait or next season
I have loved this show from the beginning. Erik McCormack deserves an Emmy for his sincere portrayal of a mentally ill leading man. Even when he acts out, he maintains enough control so as not to appear a caricature. The nicest surprise in this episode was Kate's FBI partner. For most of the season he has seemed like a yuppie frat boy. I even believed he could be involved in the conspiracy last week. This week he showed that he supported Kate and Dr. Pierce, and I hope we see more of their interaction in future episodes.
I thoroughly enjoyed the 10-episode run and hope it will return for a 2nd season. The real joy for me is seeing how Pierece handles his disease process, even when it brings him low. The guy, though he would totally deny it, is a hero. He fights a ferocious foe everyday...his own mind, and at least this season won more often than night.
The addition of Caroline is a big plus for me too.
Can't wait til it comes back in 2013.
Enjoyed this finale, because as you say, Eric McCormack is just terrific in his portrayal of Pierce. HOWEVER, as touching as they wanted to make the whole Natalie/Caroline reveal to be, it is a real stretch of belief that she was that girl at that party. And that she therefore deduces that she is who he saw, even though they never met...!!! Their writers are going to have to respect reality a lot more if they want this show to really succeed, IMHO.
I enjoyed the finale. I don't want Pierce and Kate to get together romantically; they have zero chemistry and there's something creepy about the age difference/former teacher-student relationship. Besides, she seemed to have a subtle sparkle around her partner. I'd like that better. Loved Kelly Rowan and the poignant truth about Natalie; I also liked that the real person was even better. I'll watch it next season
Great 2 part finale. Perception really likes the bait and switch plot. I'm glad "Natalie" will still be around.
