From Amazon.co.uk

So just how come it took Tim Roth so long to get the lead role in a major television series? Once they’d taken one look at Lie To Me, it’s a fair bet that many casting directors were asking the same question, as Roth manages to breathe plenty of life into the central role of Dr Cal Lightman. Inspired by a real life character, Lightman is the head of The Lightman Group, where he works alongside a team of experts as they go about their chosen business: detecting lies.

We quickly learn that in Lie To Me, Lightman is the king of his craft, and the skills of he and his team are then bolted on to what would otherwise be a fairly standard police drama. For whether it’s helping the cops, the FBI or other US government agencies, Lightman and his crew quickly prove to be brilliant at spotting the slightest hint of dishonesty from microscopic movements and gestures, and their particular skills are thus in high demand.

Fortunately for the drama in Lie To Me, there are plenty of skilled fibbers to practice their work on, and thanks to some excellent writing, the show doesn’t take long to become compulsive viewing. And, let’s not understate this, Roth is brilliant as Lightman, heading up a clever, intelligent show that’s well worth discovering. A treat. --Jon Foster

I love this show!, its by far one of the best shows on television at the moment. I think this season is slightly better than the first because this season has got more character developement, which i loved to see and found interesting. I love Tim roth and Kelli Williams chemistry and i think it really shows with their characters. Lie to me season 2 is brilliant and would recommend to anyone :)

The second season of Lie to Me meets expectations and allows us to discover more about Dr Cal Lightman's background and controversial personality. A lot of credit goes to Tim Roth, an outstanding actor, who gifted Dr Lightman with a London accent that contributes to the character's eccentricity.

The plots are credible and well supported by Kelli Williams as the diligent Dr Gillian Foster - whose acting ability was undervalued in series like "Medical Investigation".

The boring parts, at least from my point of view, are the events involving Cal's daughter Emily, a dull and predictable character - in terms of teenagers who appear in TV series, I prefer Richard Castle's daughter Alexis (actress Molly Quinn), who is more interesting and independent.

Overall rating: good, I'll surely follow the third season.

Back for a second longer season, this show is every bit the show that I so enjoyed in the first season and even a little bit more.

As with all shows, the first season suffers from a few growing pains. Actors need to settle into their roles, writers need to discover their characters' true personalities and basically the show needs to settle. Thats why the second season is often a bit better than the first and Lie to me is no exception to that. The show was smoother, the acting more comfortable and the character relationships had chance to really blossom in a believable manner.

The thing that I really loved about the first season was Tim Roth in his role as Cal Lightman. Ask me at the end of that first season if there was any way he could improve on his character and I would tell you no... I was wrong. In this second season Cal seems to be much more lively, a great deal more fun to watch and is quickly working his way into my favourite TV characters list. HIs mock nervous energy, dry sense of humour and heart of gold is a more likeable version of Hugh Laurie's House (which is really saying something because I loved House) and it is really the strong point of this show.

The other key element I liked in this series was the advancement of the relationships. There's not any major romantic steps forward in this season, but Cal's relationship with his daughter is a real high point of the show, as are his relationships with Foster and the rest of the gang. Every character seems to enjoy real chemistry with the others and that's rare in any show, yet alone a procedural drama.

My main gripe remains with the premise. The seemingly infallible lie detection system still seems like magic to me, but at least in this season they are handling it even better than the last.

Lie to me series two gets better and better. A brilliant drama and close to the latest applications of communication psychology. It's all there, I couldn't even fool my playtime supervisor at school, but maybe she was a natural. Can't wait for the further series. My grandson in California is well into the third series. A modern classic.

Excellent series. Tim Roth plays a fantastic part, but it is not all about him. The other characters are also well developed. Series 1 and 3 are far shorter, so this is where the main part of the "Lie to Me" is.

I liked Lie to me very much and found the concept very intriguing. I was disappointed when the series was cancelled, but I must admit that it started to get a bit repetitive. The first series was innovative, but it was already possible to detect some minor faults from this second one. The main one, being the fact that none of the the supporting characters had the charisma of Dr. Lightman (Tim Roth) and that he ended up stealing the scene every time he was on. I also disliked the "involvement" with the police detective and the too-slow development of his personal relationship with Dr. Foster.

Much as predicted in my review of season one, it is clear that the writers are running out of permutations of the "you're lying and I'm going to catch you out" theme. There are some superb episodes recapturing the vivacity of the first season, but these are unfortunately outnumbered by mediocre ones. There is relatively little character development (something one generally sees in second seasons) and with little on-going back-story there is little to stop the episodes becoming samey. It's a shame really, as Tim Roth is excellent (although he does get a bit over-the-top Jack Sparrow'ish in places) and the rest of the cast do their best, but the writing just isn't either clever or original enough.

This series does not disappoint. The Doctor and his team crack more cases and discover who exactly is lying and why. A brilliant series in my opinion and all principle actors deserve an Oscar. If you are new to the series then start with season one and then view series two and three.
