LIE TO ME
Ever since the launch of its first season in 2009, Lie to me has become one of the most watched TV series all over the world and especially in the United States of America. Though its inception dates back to early 2009, the TV series have found a much needed boost to its falling ratings, with James Collins, Ryan Star and Doug DeAngelis winning the BMI TV music award recently in 2009. The shooting of the second season is already underway which is likely to start off this October. The first three episodes which have already been shot and are ready to be put on the air are titled ‘The Core of it’, ‘Honey’ and ‘The Truth or Consequences’. Expectations are on the rise not only among the original series fans but also among the new ones who had heard much about the first series which was a tremendous success.
LIE TO ME plot
The first episode of the debut season titled ‘PILOT’ started off with Dr. Lightman and Dr. Foster investigating a murder case of a high school teacher who had been allegedly murdered by one of his students. However things are not always the way they look and the doctors go about their way unveiling the truth. The side plot is a case of a high profile Congressman having an affair. There have been a number of cop shows in the past but this one is different with lots intense drama mixed with small adequate doses of light moments. There have been a series of spectacular crime cases spanning over the entire season with the season finale involving terrorist bombings in the capital of the United States of America.
LIE TO ME Characters
The main reasons behind the popularity of any show are its characters. Lie to me character set actually boasts of some of the most veteran and talented actors on US television. There is a nice blend of experience and youth. Dr. Cal Lightman is professionally a psychologist and a body language expert with specialization in micro expressions. He is the founder of the Lightman group who assists law enforcement agencies in solving complex criminal cases. His investigation partner Dr Gillian Foster is one of the main protagonists of the show. There is an existing conflict between her professional and personal life. A troubled relationship at home, a child recently adopted and most difficult of criminal cases that one can imagine, this makes her one of the most interesting characters in the show. Then there is Eli Loker who specializes in reading and analyzing people. Moreover he advocates truth and rarely lies. He was demoted after approaching Torres for sex the first time he met her. Ria Torres is one in the group who possesses natural talent in solving criminal cases though she lacks formal education. Lastly there is Ben Reynolds an FBI agent who assists the Lightman Group in its investigations.
As Lie to me proceeds into its second season the viewer interest seems to be on the rise which will in all probability result in the show getting much higher ratings this time around.
