Lie to Me offers cynical humour, delightfully rich sarcasm and an impossibly great lead character. Cal Lightman (Roth) is fantastic as a mysterious, sarcastic, and smart deception scientist. He can spot a lie by just watching, as well as provoke the truth through smart and sometimes strange techniques that will have you laughing and cheering. Some might say his character is similar to that of House, I wouldn't entirely disagree but there are way in which both are more entertaining than the other.
Just one episode will make you want to see more. Every episode drags you further into the storyline. And we are only JUST getting to know the real Cal Lightman. Of all the shows I have seen in the past that have been axed, I am deathly afraid that the lack of awareness of this shows greatness, may just be its downfall. So please, TRY one episode, this show doesn't deserve to die.
