Critic Reviews for Deception: Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6)

As escapist fare, though, it turns the trick, plays its cards well, pulls a rabbit from the hat, etc. Or as ABC might say, "Abracadabra, here's to another Castle."

Platinum-plated nonsense -- but also self-aware enough to know just how nonsensical. Deception is mostly just a lot of fun.

Improbable but still fun magic-themed crime drama.

Mush up some MacGyver with a little Leverage and then throw in, well, just about every "Cocky Specialist teams with Perpetually Perturbed FBI Agent" series and you've got Deception.

Unfortunately, Deception is a show about the magic of illusion that has a great deal of difficulty being, y'know, magical.

The "Magician helps the FBI fight crime" hook of Deception sounds silly, but the early episodes prove that "silly" isn't the same as "bad."
