    I love the show deception just wish it did not come on so late, could you all put it on at 900pm. Thanks but other than that Megan Good is good and so is the whole cast.

  2. Stanley says

    Why is it that whenever a black woman is cast as a leading female with a love life who is actually attractive and likable people say that they don’t believe the characters are believable?

    If the female lead was white, we wouldn’t be hearing these complaints.

    Unfortunately, I think it will be canceled because the ratings are to low. I think the should have put the show on cable tv, it would have a better chance of surviving.

    I love the show and I definitely think it should be renewed. The mystery of it is intriguing and I like the plot. I just wish I didn’t work Monday nights so I wouldn’t have to just watch it On Demand.

    Deception has been great and I’m pleased with the season so far. I enjoy watching primetime all of them after they’ve been recorded. There’re other primetime shows I’ve enjoyed watching too and I wouldn’t have known much about them since I was limited to a few events at a time, but that’s all in the past now that I’m able to use the PrimeTime Anytime feature, which records the four major networks nightly. I work during primetime and I have to get all my shows recorded, so my families never happy when I tie up all the TVs recording. I was excited to upgrade to the DISH Hopper DVR and put an end to all those timer conflicts and continue watching TV without any issues. I love how this has enhanced everyone’s experience and it’s become one of m favorite features.

    I really love this show Deception, the dialogue is great! Love the whole cast, I look forward to see it every week . I definitely think it should be renewed! NBC please renew Deception!!!

    I think it should be ended at the end of season 1. A one season mini series would be perfect. I enjoy the show, but season 2 would be just too much.

    This will be cancelled in 5…4…3…

    The only thing the show has going for it is a few good one-liners. None of the characters, aside from the one portrayed by Tate Donovan, has any real gravitas to them…and definitely nothing that would make you care about any of them.

    I don’t love or loathe enough about any of them to compel me to keep watching. They were given 12 episodes to get started, but judging by the ratings at this point, reaching number 12 will likely involve a seance.

    The pilot episode was fantastic, now i want to see more. I know it’s early on, but the show will prove to be a hit. NBC, thank you for bringing us something like this. We needed it for a long time coming. NBC, you rocked it oou of the ballpark on this show. Keep it coming. I know it can only get better. Please don’t cancel it. Just think of all the other show that might have been cancelled and look at them now, in their 4th & 5th seasons. This one will work. C’com, we all love a little deception… don’t we!

    Too early to tell. Very slick and not likely to be able to hold my attention for more than a few episodes. Characters are not very believable.
