|Perception returns to TNT June 17th|
After nearly a year of waiting Eric McCormack returns to TNT as Dr Daniel Pierce for season 3 of PERCEPTION. I really love this show. It could be brushed off as just another show about solving crimes but it is so much better than that.
Eric McCormack plays Dr. Daniel Pierce an academic neuroscientitist who teaches by day and helps the federal government solve crime with his deductive reasoning by night. But that's not all, Dr. Daniel Pierce is also struggling with his own issues, and it's not the usual crime drama issues of drinking, or women, or gambling, or some combination of all three. He is also a schizophrenic, which sometimes makes it difficult for him to tell the real from the delusion.
Basically, our leading man is the love child of (pick your favorite) Sherlock Holmes and Patricia Arquette's Alison DuBois on MEDIUM. Except here the ghosts are hallucinations. I really love this show. I know I said that already, but I just want to reiterate that.
Sadly, I could only find this tiny season 3 clip but you can see how likable McCormack makes this character in spite of his "eccentricities".
