I only just found out that it NBC had put the pilot episode online, so I haven't watched it yet, meaning, no commentary from me (at least not within this post).

But you can watch it yourselves in the player embedded below.

Part of NBC's mid-season debuts, Deception (initially titled Notorious, and then switched to Infamous, and now will be called Deception), is scheduled to make its TV broadcast premiere on January 72013airing on Monday nights, in the 10pm - 11pm hour.

Deception stars Meagan Good as detective Joanna Locasto, a female detective who returns to work undercover investigating the wealthy family she grew up with - as the maid's daughter - to solve the murder of the notorious heiress who was once her closest friend - celebutante Vivian Lawson.

The NBC series co-stars Laz AlonsoVictor Garber, Tate Donovan, and Katherine LaNasa co-starring.

Laz Alonso is slated to play NYPD detective Will Sacovitch, who recruits Good's character, his former flame, to team up and infiltrate the Lawson home - led by Victor Garber as Robert Lawson, and Tate Donovan as his son.

Watch the full pilot episode below; I'll do so later, and return with thoughts:

    I love looking at Meagan and the camera loves her! Now about that elusive talent :p She was fine in her Eve's Bayou scenes though.

    I cannot believe people are criticizing a show that hasn't even aired yet. Why not give Meagan a chance? I just hope NBC gives Meagan's show a real fighting chance to be successful. Scandal took until the second season to really take off so I hope NBC is going to give Meagan's show time to succeed. I am very happy for Meagan about time she got her time to shine!

    I saw the pilot, I'll give it another try maybe the acting will be better. *kanye shrug*

    Angelina Jolie & Nicole Kidman have had plenty of work done on their faces, yet still manage to emote well. Megan is not very talented, and like Stacey Dash, has been allowed to ride the "pretty girl/break-out teen" wave for too long.

    The acting looks real sub par all across the board, even Laz. The thing that irritates me about Meagan and Vivica is that they both had some work done to their faces. They look like barbie dolls so it hard to take them seriously, especially when they are trying to do an emotional type role. It just looks like Meagans smelling a rotten egg or something. Meagan already is physically attractive with a soft voice, so she needs to translate some type of toughness especially if she going to be lead and playing a cop. I know this show is kind of a soap opera too but she always talking about how she want to be taking more seriously but she doesn't look believable too me.
