All 22 episodes from the second season of the American crime drama series starring Tim Roth as Dr Cal Lightman, the world's leading deception expert, who can detect the truth by analysing clues embedded in the human face, body, voice and speech. Kelli Williams and Brendan Hines co-star. Episodes are: 'The Core of It', 'Truth Or Consequences', 'Control Factor', 'Honey', 'Grievous Bodily Harm', 'Lack of Candor', 'Black Friday', 'Secret Santa', 'Fold Equity', 'Tractor Man', 'Beat the Devil', 'Sweet Sixteen', 'The Whole Truth', 'React to Contact', 'Teacher and Pupils', 'Delinquent', 'Bullet Bump', 'Headlock', 'Pied Piper', 'Exposed', 'Darkness and Light' and 'Black and White'.
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

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.
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.Read more ›
