Perception airs Mondays at 10PM on TNT.
“Dr. Daniel Pierce is an eccentric neuroscientist who uses his unique outlook to help the federal government solve complex criminal cases.”
I’m so disappointed. Not with the show, but with the reviews that I have been reading about Perception. While I understand some of the things that other reviewers have criticized and I respect their opinions, I would have to disagree. First of all, thank you Eric McCormack for gracing my television once again because I sure have missed you. Second, his character Daniel is my favorite type of character. Daniel Pierce sees things different than everybody else, and I love that. I have a soft spot for the crazy but absolutely brilliant characters like Adrienne Monk (Monk), Patrick Jane (The Mentalist), The Doctor (Doctor Who), Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock), etc. and Daniel is a character I think I’ll be adding to that list. Actually, come to think of it, Perception is similar to Sherlock also in the way that words will pop off of the surface they’re on and move around so that we see things the way they do. That, for me, is another plus. The first episode, while there were some iffy parts like all pilots do, was filled with interesting insight to what the show is bringing to the table. It was a little weird to see Rachel Lee Cook playing this really cool FBI agent because she still looks like she’s just a teenager, but I think that it works for the way they seem to be portraying the character. I can see this show easily becoming quite sad and dramatic, but I hope they balance it with the absolute brilliance and witty, sarcastic, humor that I think this show can pull off.
I just hope it proves me right.
