Critic Consensus: Perception's cast is game, but its implausible premise and thinly-sketched characters keep this police procedural from being truly memorable.

I am inclined to root for McCormack... But no matter how much McCormack throws himself into his Perception role, balancing dramatic A Beautiful Mind-like heft with Monk-like humor, he's still driving a faulty vehicle.
People who like procedurals will enjoy playing along. But the real charm of the series is in its ensemble, especially the character of Daniel, enthusiastically played by McCormack.
Thanks largely to McCormack, but also to Cook and others, Perception is fun to watch.
McCormack is terrific in Perception, which pushes him far beyond his sitcom to play a character who is not entirely likable...His show, on the other hand, isn't so terrific.
