Description

In Season One, Cal heads up a private agency contracted by the FBI, local police, law firms, corporations, and private individuals when they hit roadblocks in their searches for the truth. Joining him are a variety of experts in the field of behavioral evaluation: Dr. Gillian Foster is a gifted psychologist and Cal's professional partner, a woman whose guidance Cal needs, whether he knows it or not; Will Loker is Cal's lead researcher, and he is so aware of the human tendency to lie that he has decided to uncomplicate matters and practice what he terms "radical honesty:" he says everything on his mind at all times. Ria Torres, the newest member of the team, arrives at the truth differently by acting more on instinct and using her natural, less-studied ability to read body language and catch certain clues that Cal's other pledges may miss. Lie to Me probes how people can deceive themselves just as easily as they deceive others, and explores the idea that there is nothing more revealing than when we choose to tell the truth and when we decide to lie.

*Head Bob*

I just discovered, or realized, the talent that is Tim Roth. So I was a bit peeved at the sharp teeth biting into the show before it even officially aired, *Anger* deeming it unoriginal and same ol'. But the fact is, it's good. Its quirky like Numb3rs, with the attention more on the process and not the crime itself. CSI is great, but sometimes I lie awake wondering if there's a corpse under my bed *Fear Expression*. A while ago, I watched a special on body movement used to show emotions on the history channel. It was one of those programs most people think they will find boring, but actually be rivoted *Surprise* by because of its practical application and stunning insight. Lie To Me wil thrive if the writers are astute enough to play to the humor, and make the characters real without making them soap-opera charactertures of themselves. I really enjoyed the first episode. They will have to be careful about not having the extras overact, the expressions need to feel natural, and possible. Tim Roth is a gem, and I hope it survives not only for its cleverness, but for the sake of having him entertain every week. *Happy*

Amazing show, based on REAL science.

Tim Roth is perfect for the role of Cal Lightmann and an incredible actor. The show is based off the work of Dr. Paul Ekman, a noted behavioral psychologist who has studied facial expressions and body language as his life's work and how to detect these emotions when people are trying to hide them. The best part of the show is the practical application; you will be surprised at how you see these expressions in real life once you watch the show.

This is terrible . . . okay, that's a lie!

Lie to Me is engaging, refreshing, and fascinating to watch! I've always admired Tim Roth, a superb actor. For a while I was wondering if the future story lines would wear thin, but after viewing this pilot, I believe the writers will be able to maintain interesting plot lines. It will be fascinating how future seasons will look like. I also thought that this show follows the same thread as other shows about detectives who rely on heightened sensing abilities (monk, psyche, the closer, etc.). But what makes this episode engaging is that the viewer is constantly learning about everyday sociological behaviors. Hence, the viewer would be (supposedly) able to apply what he/she learns in judging the facial expressions of other people. Another factor is how this show constantly make references to real life people (OJ Simpson, Dick Cheyney, etc.). Kudos to the people behind this! As long as the style does not wear thin, this show should hopefully be around for a few seasons.
