Great acting and great story line.
Sonia
This is a really good show because it exposes the way we all think lying is easy to get away with.
Darius
Very cool show based on real lie spotting techniques.

This is a great series based on a fun idea. The main character, played by Tim Roth, is a man who has made a study of honesty and the psychological indicators of lying. He has taken the art to such heights he creates an agency that performs this feat on a regular basis for clients of all types. It is a fascinating premise and the writers exploit the idea to maximum effect. The supporting cast is very capable but Roth routinely steals the show with his understated but hip portrayal of a deep, misunderstood, yet sympathetic genius.

Amazingly, considering the themes, this is at once a very intelligent show yet suitable for viewing with audiences of all ages. My only complaint is that Roth, with his distinctive british accent, is occasionally difficult to understand, but this might be a function of my diminishing auditory acuity (typical for baby boomers) but I wondered if the digital technicians could have compensated. But this is a very minor complaint and would in no way keep me from buying the series. I am sure younger ears will have no problem with the sound.

I rate this series high for great acting, great writing, and an intriguing premise.

Lie to Me continues to be one of the most unique and intriguing shows on TV. It's intriguing psychological twists not only keep you on your toes but also subtly develops the inner layers of the characters.

The acting is fabulous, which I suppose it has to be since the show teaches us to spot the signs of lying, ie acting. Tim Roth continues to steal the show but everyone in the supporting cast does an amazing job.

The writers make each episode a mix of something totally fresh while building the underlying subplots and relationships. If a shows major plot isn't a subject that appeals to me I still get caught up in the psychological back stories and the continuing character development.It's nice to have a show that wraps a meaningful story around a wide variety of scenario's without relying on cursing or violence.

Paul Ekman's science of reading facial expressions and emotions is intriguing. I'm sure it's glamorized here but just by watching the show you start to become more adept at seeing what the people around you aren't saying, that was unexpected but a pretty nifty benefit.

It is the most interesting and charming serial of the last years. The acting of Tim Roth makes it all even more worth it. Besides, the scientific background is really solid, I can tell as I am a researcher too. I would totally suggest it not only to science people, but to everyone as it does give hints on how to manage people's attitudes in everyday life.

One of the things I've spoken of from time to time is that with the invention of the DVD great television shows have been given a second chance. Where networks have a tendency to seek out the quick fix, the show that needs to be a hit in 3 weeks, DVD gives viewers a chance to sink their collective teeth into a show and really find out if they like it or not. And when they discover a gem on DVD, they begin watching that show. Such should be the case for LIE TO ME, the second season of which is now available on DVD.

For those who haven't started watching, the show focuses on Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth), the head of The Lightman Group. His company is in the business of researching how to know if someone is lying or not. Cal has come to the point where by simply looking at a person as they speak he can recognize the tell tale signs that they are indeed lying, a human lie detector if you will. The show simply involves him in stories that revolve around both clients seeking his help and his personal life where it comes in handy. Everything from being taken hostage by a man accused of killing his wife to wondering if his teenage daughter is visiting college frat parties is fair game.

But Lightman is not alone. Along for the ride is long time friend and partner in the business Dr. Gillian Foster (Kelli Williams). Foster is the rational mind to Lightman's off kilter style of handling things. Where Lightman might seem completely off the wall most times, Foster is one who keeps things together and does most of the clean up work afterwards. Season one featured Lightman discovering that Foster's husband was cheating on her. Season two deals with her being newly divorced which in usual TV series would lead to her going to bed with Lightman. Not so here.

WOW - after the first 12 episodes:
not what I expected (different from season one) but the best
"crime" TV show on the air now.... almost all episodes feel
like a feature movie..... great stories - REAL GOOD stuff!
(only in one early episode (2nd or 3rd) the Fox guys seemed
to have forced some of their medieval stupidity on the writers
and Cal acted totally implausible for a guy with his
"talent".....)
MUST BUY!!!!!

I gave it 4 stars but really want to give it 2. This is the most unique show since Millennium, but both shows suffered from bad writing.

The show has such potential and a unique premise. It is terrible that the writers can't do anything more than standard crime drama writing. Too many episodes had Emily maybe in danger, and then she just walks in the door. Far too many episodes had to do with dark aspects of different characters pasts.

That is soap opera fodder, very cliche, very tired. A story driven show doesn't need all this extra fluff. To see a show with such promise in the hands of sloppy hacks is painful. Still, Tim Roth rises above the mediocrity and makes the cliches enjoyable. In almost every case unrealized potential means it is worthless, but this is a rare case where potential is enough to stick around.
