Really hope this show isn’t taken off after only 1 season. I love it & find myself watching it on Demand several times a week while waiting on the next weeks episode.


Tamara March 7, 2013 at 8:39 pm

I watch it on demand. If it came on earlier, I could watch it when it airs. Great show with great actors. I thought I wanted Joanna and Will together but the chemistry between her and Julian is undeniable. I wonder what others think about this triangle???


Tamara March 7, 2013 at 8:35 pm

Love Love Love this show. Started off not so great but I saw the potential. It has gotten better each week. Please renew this show.


Kimberly March 7, 2013 at 4:25 pm

I really hope this show gets picked up for another season! There is no other show like it! I love all the characters, even the bad ones! Which is so rare for me. And all the storylines are great and i am always surprised by a change in every episode!! I hope they keep this show!

Please keep it!!


Lela March 6, 2013 at 7:11 pm

I LOVE this show! I love the suspense! Megan Good & Wes Brown have awesome chemistry together! They are a gorgeous couple. I also enjoy the other characters & their own personal dramas. I purchased some of the episodes online at Amazon & enjoy watching them over again. I would like to see Deception have a season 2.


MAM March 6, 2013 at 6:33 pm

Keep the show.


Love it! March 6, 2013 at 3:17 pm

Such a great show. Look forward to every Monday!!


TeiaR March 6, 2013 at 1:15 pm

Please keep the show. I love the mystery and I am trying to figure out who did what and why but my answer keeps changing and keeps me on my toes. The characters are great and they keep the story going. Each twist leaves you wanting more. I try to watch the whole hour but it comes on so late I fall asleep before or during so I always record and rewatch. I wish that counted because I bet more fans record and love the show verses the sample group. Everyone should have input on their favorite shows. I request more seasons please.


Brenda March 6, 2013 at 11:45 am

For those of us who love mystery and suspense, this is a keeper. It is fresh and new with great actors. Hope to see it back for a second season.
