Lie to me...very refreshing!!
30 December 2009 | by michel-linschotenSee all my reviews

Hi all, i see i have the honors of a first review. Offcourse so far I've only seen complete season 1 and waiting for 2.


Well you can read here on the board, were its about. The lightman group is a company that specializes in indeed deception. The entire concept was totally NEW to me! So when i saw the first episode it was surprising how that was worked out.


Off course most of us know Tim Roth as a splendid actor! A few of his movies (Reservoir Dogs, and as bad guy in Hoodlum,Pulpfiction) made him a good actor. Offcouse this does not mean the perfect must have to make a good series. He plays his part as little bit expected really well! He is strange,provoking and daring. The other roles are very well divided too the all get a portion of attention. Nobody stick on the background it does not evolve constantly around Tim.


A very surprising formula if you ask me. It is totally new the entire concept. I mean we all know the tons of CSI,NCIS ectra series to tell you the truth the are coming out of my nostrils. This is NEW innovative if you ask me. And just well done!

Enjoy this series, it is very interesting and refreshing! If you like movies like Seven,The Usual Suspects this is your ticket. Each episode is surprising and not always very easy to understand the "plot".

Loveing it, cannot wait for the second part!
