One of the few tv show I watch


Lie to me is one of the few good shows left on television. All the actors are top notch and seem realistic which may just be a byproduct of the show's premise.

Essentially Lie to me follows the story of Dr. Lightmen and his company. Lightmen himself is an expert in being able to tell if someone is telling the truth, not in a bullshit lie detector way instead he picks up on subtle ques that everyone shows. Anger, guilt, fear Lightmen is able to decipher what a person is really feeling or trying not to feel. His team are all able to pick up on the ques as well, although they are not as experienced as him. They each have a different background and at times wind up being deeply involved with the story.

One of the things this show has going for it is how all the characters, even minor ones react and interact. Its like watching something in real life, people exhibit emotions true to what you would see in an everyday conversation. This is most likely because the shows selling point is that these people are trained to see these ques and if the actors didn't show them it would fail. None the less acting of this caliber on a tv show no less is refreshing to see.

With tv clogged with low production value shows, ridiculously bad reality shows, and actors that really shouldn't be televised its nice to see a program making strides to entertain with unique and believable characters. If you've never seen or heard of Lie to me before check it out on www.hulu.com

  8. Detective Hughs: Its been two hours, you think we can trust that
    pervert?
    Dr. Cal Lightman: Yes. In my experience self-castrating paedophiles
    are generally telling the truth.
