  • I continue to catch episodes of this program, when I can; I like Tim Roth, so I want to like this show.

    I find that the premise for Lie To Me, requires a suspension of disbelief. How this firm could turn a profit is beyond me - what they do is basically pseudo-science, but their services are seen as widely sought after. Occasionally, I have been rewarded with what I call "Tim Roth tour de force episodes"; you get so caught up watching Mr. Roth, that what he is saying or doing, doesn't matter much. This was such an episode. I enjoyed the dynamic that took place between Dr. Cal Lightman and the protagonist. The actor playing the father of a kidnapped baby was Doug Hutchinson; I've been following his career since I first saw him on the X-Files - he doesn't appear often (in movies or television) but he is always compelling. The two performances were well worth watching and made this a pretty good episode.
