    I can't believe they canceled this show. This was the best show on NBC and they got rid of it and kept all of the other crap. So what if the show is similar to ABC's Revenge? It does not make it a bad show! Those who say the show is bad are nuts.

    The show is great. Its interesting, suspenseful and entertaining without being over-the-top. It's realistic and I hope it comes back for a second season. I love this show.

    On first blush, Deception is smart, stylish and involving. In time, it could drift. But, for now, enjoy the kind of storytelling that gives its core cast something interesting--and watchable--to do.

    Deception borrows a lot from that show and others, ending up more fun than challenging.

    Deception just seems sloppily constructed and poorly written, wasting some good actors (Victor Garber, Tate Donovan and Meagan Good) in the process and never giving you a reason to care.
