    Possui uma ótima idéia (inclusive real) que o pioneiro no estudo de expressões faciais (Paul Ekman) fez e escreveu num livro, onde é possível prever alguns emoções através da leitura facial. Com isso, é transportado para o mundo da ficção, à la CSI, que o personagem principal é chamado pra resolver os mais cabeludos casos de crimes, traições ect. Porém, acho que formato de episódio nãoPossui uma ótima idéia (inclusive real) que o pioneiro no estudo de expressões faciais (Paul Ekman) fez e escreveu num livro, onde é possível prever alguns emoções através da leitura facial.

Porém, acho que formato de episódio não relacionados não me prendeu a ponto de não largar mais a série (estilo Lost). Com isso, vi apenas a 1° temporada e desisti. Expand

    Lie to me had a spectacular kick-off with an even more spectacular Tim Roth. But in the course of the first season the stories became weaker - as if writers don't know how they could stop writing the same story of deceit detection again and again without becoming an ordinary crime drama that makes Cal Lightman an ordinary investigator.

    I love the premise of the show but hate the lies of the writers. The distortions (or predjudices) of the truth in the two episodes I have seen are evident. As example in one a character states that all women in the army are "bithces or whores...". Another claims that the armed forces are so hard up that the are forced to use felons and allow them to commit crimes because they cannot get I love the premise of the show but hate the lies of the writers.

Another claims that the armed forces are so hard up that the are forced to use felons and allow them to commit crimes because they cannot get enough recruits. I could list many other forms of misinformation and biased that the show is propagating but the need for the defamation of our soldiers during a time of war by ignorant people in Hollywierd is enough for me to use my right to turn this show off and stop the Lies to Me. (Notice I did not need to get the government to prohibit others to watch this program) Expand

  1. Lie to Me is derivative yet well crafted, predictable yet ever-so-slightly novel.

    OK, fine, so maybe the pilot does wrap up with your typical teary-eyed confession. Otherwise, though, Lie to Me is as thoroughly entertaining and charming as its fine-looking cast of characters.

    Lie to Me's pilot is brisk anthropological fun.
