NBC's "Deception" sounds like it could be fun, but not as much fun as ABC's "Castle"

January 4, 2013 - Andrea Johnson
I haven't watched much TV lately, but one of the shows that's starting next week looks kind of good.

Judging by the promos, NBC's "Deception"airs at 9 p.m. Monday and is about a 30-something police detective whose wealthy, childhood best friend dies of an overdose under suspicious circumstances. Since her mother worked for the rich family when she was growing up, the detective (Meagan Good) is in the perfect position to go undercover and try to find out what really happened. The promos show typical soapy scenes: the detective reconnecting with the handsome scion of the family; the wealthy patriarch of the family looking secretive; flashbacks of the murder victim and the detective as young girls.

This is one I'd probably watch if it didn't air at the same time as one of my favorites, ABC's "Castle," which also airs at 9 p.m. Monday. "Castle" has a new episode next week that puts Castle (Nathan Fillion) under the same roof with his colorful actress mother, his college-age daughter, who has mono; his scheming first ex-wife, who insists she's there to take care of the daughter but really wants to start something up again with Castle, and his new girlfriend, police detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), whose own apartment is being fumigated. It sounds like a recipe for disaster. It also sounds hilarious. Even "Deception" isn't likely to make me miss that episode.

Luckily, today's viewers have options for watching shows online. I have a "Hulu" subscription and NBC's shows are on it.
