    I admit it had a bit of a slow start, but the second half of the season more than made up for it. So many plots developed! It really kept you on your toes. All of the actors were great in their roles. I couldn’t wait to see each next episode. I’ll be anxiously awaiting the new season. Please bring it back!! Great show!!

  3. Brian Edwards says

    I love this show! It is thrilling and keeps me guessing. I want to know why Vivian was murdered, did Bowers kill his wife as well? What will happen to Mia? So many questions left unanswered! BRING DECEPTION BACK FOR SEASON 2!!!!!

    I like Deception. It seems like it eroded every week for some reason. Yikes. I have to admit that I watch it on hulu plus. Don’t the other venues count in ratings? That is how I watch a lot of my shows at this point. I can choose the time to watch and I love it.

    I REALLy enjoyed Deception! I thought it was very intriguing. There were lots of twists and turns. It kept my interest because of all the different plots. I certainly hope ABC will give it an0ther year and renew it. I am SO tired of ABC giving me a new show and then canceling it. They get the viewers interested and then take away good shows. I loved Invasion, but they cancelled it after one season. October Road was another good one. They let that one stay on for two years before canceling it. The ratings aren’t always the best gauge of who’s watching what. I don’t believe it takes into consideration who records shows to watch later.

    Love this show! So engaging. So many questions. So many reasons for viewers to keep tuning in each week! Come on season 2!!!!

    I’d like to know what’s the point in even trying to start to enjoy a new tv drama. The networks pull them before anyone gets a chance to get invested in them. Loved 666 park avenue and abc didnt even have the respect for viewers to show the remaining episodes. I don’t know about anyone else- but I am sooooo tired of reality tv. How is it that a show like deception may not get renewed and then the network thinks people want to see d list celebrities jump off diving boards?? The state of tv is pathetic. Bring back Deception and let people enjoy an actual drama.

  8. R. Baron says

    Please!!!! Another really good show cannot be cancelled. Maybe the networks should try promoting their new shows a little more. There is not one “unlikeable” cast member. This show has true potential. I love it . Why do the networks get you attached to something,then take it away? Makes you not want to start watching in the first place. Be careful!
