THANK YOU FOR CANCELLING……NO, NOT REALLY, YOU STINK

You find an interesting movie watch all season one episodes and when you are done and cannot wait to catch up on what happens in the next season, you cannot find season two of the movie. Baffling, right?

 

Those who have watched Deception can affirm that the series was worth a second season. This is a good show with a fast and strong plot , with no noticeable gaps in the script.It is about a famed magician who twin brother was arrested after a set up and he tries to get his twin brother out of prison,but the only way to get him out is by putting to practice his skills as an illusionist and master of deceptionsing every trick in the book and inventing new ones to help the FBI in solving high profile cases. The show takes viewers back to shows like The Mentalist(a psychic teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes) Castle (a novelist who teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes),Limitless (a man who can use 100% of his brain through the use of a certain drug team up with the law enforcement to solve crimes) Lucifer(the devil teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes, John Doe(a guy who remembers everything teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes)Blind spot (a tattooed woman who cannot remember who she is teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes, a medical examiner teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes (Rizzoli & Isles), a medical examiner who’s also a zombie teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes (iZombie), a medical examiner who’s also 200 years old and immortal teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes (Forever), a retired cop who’s brought back to life through bioengineering teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes (Second Chance), a white collar criminal teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes (White Collar), an anthropologist teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes (Bones), a neuropsychiatrist teams up with law enforcement to solve crimes (Perception), a woman with the ability to “stitch” into the minds of the deceased teams aweigh with law enforcement to solve crimes (Stitches).With this list, I know the term ’cliché’ runs through your mind. On the brighter side Deception has some originality “the illusionist part”. Personally I have never watched a crime TV show with law enforcement and magicians working together. This one is so unique and mind blowing.

The cast of this show is on a whole other level even though some are new actors. Imagine Amaury Nolasco of prison break, Vinnie jones,Ilfenesh Hadera,Jack Cutmore-Scott,Justin Chon,Lenora Crichton and not forgetting the villain of the show a.k.a mystery woman Stephanie Corneliussen all in one show.

To my fellow cinephiles,if you haven’t watched this add it to your watch lists the first episode will have you drawn in already and you will thank me later. If you love crime crime and magic, then this is a sure bet. In addition, it is clean enough to watch with children.

 

Now to why it was cancelled, my research says that the show was cancelled after one season due to its current rating which to abc was not a break out. In short, the show did not attract as much viewers as required. Abc should have given this movie a chance and keep it on. What’s not to love about it anyways.

 

Other shows that were axed by abc after one season each include; inhuman, Kevin probably saves the world and The crossing.

 

P.S-I know this is 2020 and the show was released in march 2018 but I just bumped into it this year, do not judge me.
