Inspired by the scientific discoveries of real life body language specialist and criminal investigator Dr. Paul Eikman, the police detective series Lie To Me follows Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) and his special team of experts as assist local police, government agencies, and federal law enforcement in solving some of their most difficult cases. Dr. Lightman can detect a lie simply by studying a person's face, body, voice, and speech. The simplest gesture can tip Dr. Lightman off. He can read every emotion his subjects had thought they kept hidden, from jealousy, to sexual attraction, to resentment. But as helpful as this talent is in his professional life, it often proves a curse in his personal life. As the leader of The Lightman Group, Dr. Lightman presides over a team comprised of gifted psychologist Dr. Gillian Foster (Kelli Williams), who always has a solid grasp on the big picture, lead researcher Eli Loker (Brendan Hines), who despises the human tendency to lie to such a degree that he practices "radical honesty," and agency newcomer Ria Torres, a true natural in the field of deception detection. Together, The Lightman Group can sniff out any lie, and ensure that justice is served even when the culprit is a master manipulator. Features the first series of the show.

There are obvious parallels with the excellent `the Mentalist' with Roth's character being an expert in interpreting micro-expressions and body language but without the lightly comic tongue-in-cheek touch of Simon Baker's character. On the whole, I found the character more one-dimensional and less engaging but I cannot fault the writing or Roth's slightly enigmatic performance. The story-lines are taut and there is just enough under-story to make the series a cohesive item rather than just a series of episodes.
All-in-all, it is a very enjoyable way to while away a few hours when there's nothing worth watching on telly (which is actually most of the time!) although I'm not sure it has the legs to run for many series, as how many times can an interesting variation of the "you're lying and I'm going to catch you out" theme can there be?
