Tierney Bricker and Kristin Dos Santos tied Deception to Veronica Mars and Revenge a couple of days ago over on E Online, and I can’t help but agree. Unfortunately for it, I think it’s more Revenge than Veronica Mars. As seen by the epic fail that is Revenge this season, this is a very bad thing.
When it’s all over, I hope SOAPnet picks it up in syndication like Veronica Mars. Revenge too. That stuff belongs on SOAPnet way more than Veronica Mars did.
Bus is that really a bad thing? Can’t we just have these one season wonders that are amazing and made everyone happy for that time and move on? I’m not a huge fan of British TV by any stretch of the imagination, but they might have gotten something right there. They don’t keep their shows on for very long, and if they do, it’s with a very revolving cast.
Let’s do that with Deception, the way we should have done with Revenge. It lasts for one season, we all love it, and leaves us wondering if that was really the end. End with some sort of wonderful mystery. I will be the happiest little TV viewer on the planet.
