    Amazon.com

    Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth), a deception specialist, believes that "the truth is written on all our faces." Unlike the psychics of Medium and The Mentalist, he reads body language rather than minds or dreams to crack cases, from murders to business matters, for a variety of law enforcement agencies. His team includes Eli Loker (Brendan Hines), Ria Torres (Monica Raymund), and Dr. Gillian Foster (The Practice's Kelli Williams). Though the show opens with the disclaimer that "the following story is fictional and does not depict any actual person or event," Lightman often looks to real life for reference, so archival images enter into each episode, sometimes resulting in cheap shots at political figures, like Richard Nixon ("I am not a crook"), but their contradictory gestures can be instructive. Overall, Lie to Me manages to feel both familiar and distinctive. Sleuths who deal better with problems than with people are a television staple, and Lightman is no different (Jennifer Beals plays his district attorney ex-wife). He also condescends to those he considers intellectually inferior or overly instinctive--like Torres--but Roth makes him sufficiently sympathetic. The stories, however, offer more surprises, since they cover the gamut from depressed pilots to gambling addicts. During these 13 episodes, Torres falls for a secret service agent, Foster experiences a personal setback, Loker experiences a professional one, and Ben Reynolds (ER's Mekhi Phifer) becomes a liaison between the Lightman Group and the FBI.

    In the making-of featurette, "The Truth About Lies," creator Samuel Baum explains that he strives to explore "situations where honesty may not be the best policy" (Loker believes in "radical honesty," while Lightman won't hesitate to lie to expose a liar). Fun trivia: the first season ends with Roth walking toward the camera in slow motion, a move eerily reminiscent of Reservoir Dogs. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

    5.0 out of 5 stars Lie to Me based on real life work of Paul Ekman May 18, 2009
    Format:Blu-ray
    When I saw the dismal review with one star rating about which was about Fox network and not the tv show Lie To Me, I had to write one. Lie to Me is loosely based on the real life work of psychologist Paul Ekman. I studied some of Ekman's work and read one of his books. I believe this show is very interesting and as true as it can be to deception expert training. I loved the real life footage they show from time to time to mirror the actor's micro-expression. Fascinating work. This show is a mix of fiction and non-fiction and it's quite a nice break from "reality" TV.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series!!!! May 12, 2009
    Format:DVD
    This TV series is excellent, the best thing on at present. Tim Roth brings superb acting skills to the complex character of Dr. Cal Lightman, an expert in lie detection, based on the research conducted by Paul Ekman, a renowned expert in the field of facial expressions and emotions. The Lightman Group is employed by various agencies to detect deception, whether it is in a life or death scenario finding trapped builders in a collapsing building, searching for kidnapped children or the nuances in romantic relationships. The series explains the science behind the concepts in an easy to understand manner in the first few episodes but doesn't molly-coddle the audience, expecting them to keep up as the series picks up speed and dropping the details explanations. Excellent characterisation, good plot lines, great acting. This show is very good. I await the release of the DVD with a great deal of impatience and hope the following series lives up to the impact the first one made.

    If you like your shows with a strong flavouring of intelligence this is definitely one for you.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Most Fascinating Show on TV May 8, 2009
    Format:DVD
    This is one of the most unique shows to hit TV in a long time. "Lie to Me" defies so many trends and presents a fascinating show with no guns, no explosions, car chases or tiring cops/robbers drama, and delves into captivating psychology and stories loaded with twists and turns. You can't look away from actor Tim Roth who dominates every scene. One of the best shows overall to hit TV. I was so happy to hear that it's been renewed for a second season and can't wait for the DVD release.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent and intriguing drama May 7, 2009
    Format:DVD
    Tim Roth stars as Dr. Cal Lightman, a no-nonsense expert in lie detection who heads The Lightman Group, a Washington D.C.-based team of likeminded professionals who help solve crimes and mysteries by analyzing the facial expressions and behavior of the various individuals involved.

    Lightman and his partner, Dr. Gillian Foster (Kelli Williams) are primarily assisted by their young protegees, researcher Eli Loker (Brendan Hines) and Ria Torres (Monica Raymund), a newcomer who was specially chosen for her innate ability to spot lies without any prior training.

    Of course, a negative aspect of being so finely tuned to the nuances of human behavior means seeing things in family and friends, even when you might not always want to -- as Lightman has learned the hard way with his ex-wife Zoe (Jennifer Beals). He and Foster have an often-repeated agreement not to "cross the line" when dealing with one another. Yet when you genuinely care about someone, and interact regularly, it's often difficult to keep your eyes closed and mouth shut.

    Particularly memorable episodes include "Depraved Heart," where Cal investigates the back-to-back suicides of two Indian sisters -- and reveals something startling about the reason he first got into lie detection -- and "Blinded," where the group tries to find out who's copycatting a serial rapist's brutal assaults before the next woman is assault -- and one of their own is threatened.

    This drama provides a great blend of workplace mysteries and personal issues, as well as a number of red herrings (Lightman himself being the master). If you haven't given this show a try, please do -- you'll soon be hooked!

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Tim Roth Vehicle April 28, 2009
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I have been hooked on this show since episode one. This role suits Tim Roth perfectly; the character is smart, but flawed. the episodes are fast paced and have many twists and turns.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best new series on television! May 17, 2009
    Format:DVD
    Finally, a fresh, creative and original concept for a show! If you haven't seen Lie To Me, I highly recommend you do. Tim Roth is excellent, as is the rest of the cast.

    To those who are wrongly under the impression that the set is going to be one DVD that's 60 minutes long - have some common sense. There's not a release date set yet (as of 5/17), so therefore Amazon uses generic specs until official ones are provided. I don't think one person's confusion warranted a 1 star rating for the series itself, bringing it down to 4.5 total stars. I guess Amazon should just post "N/A" for unknown specs to avoid that happening.

    5.0 out of 5 stars An original and clever series March 8, 2009
    Format:DVD
    This is the best new crime procedural series to come along in years! Tim Roth is great as a specialist in body language, helping to solve crimes simply by watching how people react and talk. The crimes themselves are interesting too, with some clever plot twists included. The main characters are engaging and interact well. My one tiny complaint is that at times I have trouble understanding Tim Roth because of his accent, but that is very minor. I can't wait for the DVD, and I hope it will include some interesting background on the science of body language.
