"The Mentalist" was a good show, which rather lost its way and never properly fleshed out its 'big bad', "Red John". The Mentalist was motivated to track down the monster who murdered his family. In "Deception" an illusionist and stage magician is motivated to work for the FBI in order to find the person who framed his brother and put him into in jail for a crime he didn't commit. He also brings a magic team with him, to provide a greater variety of characters for viewers to to invest in. Oh... and our illusionist hero works has a woman for his boss, just like the Mentalistt. The ensemble cast are engaging and, while the set-up was hard to swallow, we can suspend disbelief for a little entertainment. Let's hope that they bear in mind the mistakes made by the show that they are effectively rebooting and think the plot arc through - if they get the chance.... Will it enjoy a long run, or is it too derivative? Also, there are an awful lot of shows out there where a 'consultant' shows the FBI how it's done. I suspect that the crew have their fingers crossed on this one. If the actors can't make it fly, it won't last. Still... well worth a watch.

After mentalists, mathematicians, super-geniuses, forensic anthropologist and white collar criminals, now the FBI is getting teamed up with a magician. Good that they started right away by giving the protagonist a personal investment to get involved with the FBI. I love to see how the tricks are getting done, but on the other hand, as FBI Agent Mike Alvarez, I don't really what to see behind the curtain of magic.
