I really enjoyed this show. It was a different twist on the crime show genre and it worked. I was sad that it ended.

This is a public service show concerning issues of MENTAL HEALTH, and very well done. I will miss this when it is gone. His vulnerability and his lack of flexibility (organic grapefruit or die!) are constant reminders of the strengths and weaknesses we all have, only the names have been changed to protect the guilty (If you don't remember that line in its original form, it is from DRAGNET circa 1960)

His constant reminder that HE would not have been successful without the tremendous understanding of his friends (both real and imagined) remind us to cut people some slack when they are brave enough to admit they might need mental health services. My own introduction to the good services in Chicago in the 70's (helped me through a tough life experience and set me on a path to self-awareness that has lasted decades) always makes me wonder why the STIGMA is still so strong to being willing to ask or accept help.

So interesting to see the way his mind works and how he solves the cases.

Perception...when crazy became cool. This is a show that explores crazy but also challenges you not to see crazy. I have actually come away from this show with a different "Perception" of people with mental disorder - well done show writers

This was a wonderfully scripted series with a strong cast that made every episode a memorable one. I think the show was doubly blessed to have Eric McCormack in the lead, as he did an outstanding job portraying Professor Daniel Pierce. Here is a man who suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and sees hallucinations, yet he possesses keen insight into the human mind and has an uncanny ability to ferret out the truth. It is for precisely these reasons that he is recruited by the FBI to assist in solving some of their more challenging cases, and he does this with aplomb, using his disorder more as a tool than a crutch. Episodes usually begin and end in his classroom, a place where he seems most comfortable with himself, and where his final words of wisdom for the day reflect on the case that was recently solved. These words resonate with the viewer, as does the delightful theme music that creeps into the dialogue just as the show ends. Very thought provoking, and a very fitting way to conclude each episode. If you have not watched it, give at least one season a chance. I, for one, am quite saddened by the fact that the show was cancelled after only three.

Not clever, but I like to work out the mysteries before they do - and I really enjoy his nervous breakdowns!

Another police crime show but this time with a skitzophrenic as the partener. Refleshing vew of life and food for thought. Worth the watch
