I really wanted to like this show but ended up finding it very silly indeed. The whole premise of the show, subtle facial expressions and micro twitches, ended up becoming increasingly ludicrous until it reached the point where I couldn't watch it without groaning and continually rolling my eyes. A shame really as Tim Roth is a great actor.
When I first heard of it, I was thinking, "Cool, I would watch that if I had time." Later, when I watched an episode, I was hooked.
I actually know the cousin of Paul Ekman, the mastermind behind microexpressions and fact checker of Lie To Me. In fact, Mr. Don Ekman's my AP psych teacher here in Oregon :D When I looked up Paul Ekman to see if it was true, I saw that he did Lie To Me, and I started watching it on Netflix. I wish there were more episodes. The 'Let There Be LIGHTMAN Revolution,' I hope it'll work. It'll let FOX know that there are still avid viewers out there who want to see more and more of it.
Just discovered this on Netflix last night & was fully immersed. Sad to see it wasn't what more Americans wanted. Think it's great & very worth while. Specially when Dr Lightman went to get a sandwich from a vendor & asked him if he washed his hands. Of course the vendor lied so Dr Lightman alerted all around that they might enjoy a feces sandwich from the guy.
was an awesome tv series............i must say, what the hell they were thinking not to extend this tv series further...............still so much worst tv series get projected day to day on our televisions..........but this, this was an epic and still they discontinued it.......man audience is dying.......they need something different and this was the one we were having........what to say.......i'm still having a small hope inside.........just waiting.............
I just watched the last episode on Netflix and I didn't realize it was the last one till I looked for more episodes and couldn't find any. It is a wonderful show and I don't know why they canceled it. It's really sad. I hope they realize how much this show is missed and they make more episodes. :(
I don't remember why I didn't regularly watch this show. I found it on NetFlix and have been watching 3-4 episodes every night. The intertwining sub plots are way more fun than the gritty main themes and the personal involement among the Lightman Group keeps you coming back to see when / if Lightman and Gillian are ever going to really be an item.
I always wondered if the examples shown as the frozen stills would get them political pressure--many pics of presidents and first ladies in a less than perfect spotlight.......
This was a wonderfully written show and the actors were really getting it right....I miss your art.
A great show. Why did they have to cancele it? You might say i'm crazy but things I saw in the show about this science are truly happening in the real life. the difference is that know I can translate what I see. In Fox they kept the fringe and touch. Average shows, not even close to this one. Bring it back!!
Not just because I am a scientist and I love things like this, but because it is generally interesting. The series should not be cancelled. I think it deserves to be renewed. If it is promoted enough, I think it will be very successful. It's amazing. Way more interesting than NCIS. And yet that show has so many damn seasons.
I loved the show and feel the show. Although I cannot relate with the father and daughter thing [Dr.Lightman and Emily] I envy their bonding, and how Dr.Lightman loves her daughter how he protects her and get scared whenever somebody put his daughter in harm or whatever. Also this show do not bore me while watching it. Some of the shows are a bit boring and not as exciting as this show. IT IS A D*MN GOOD SHOW!!!! JUST BRING IT BACK!!!!
Everyone, listen. I'm starting a Let There Be LIGHTMAN revolution! I want everyone to send and email to firstname.lastname@example.org requestion a fourth season of 'Lie to Me', signed at 'Let There Be LIGHTMAN' or "Let There Be LIGHTMAN Revolution!" If Fox gets enough emails, they MAY consider putting the show back on. Let's get Lie to Me back on air everyone! Let There Be LIGHTMAN
I absolutely love Lie to me, the actors are fantastic, the stories are original and inventive... They really drop a good show and should really reconsider bring it back. That's the best show they had on FOX.... Does not watch that channel anymore. Really hope they will realize their mistake and bring it back.
I hate it when you (FOX) takes and puts on a GREAT SHOW WITH A GREAT STORY LINE and than turn around and cancels it. You even stopped in a suspenseful way. I really was hoping to see how it would turn out between Cal and Gillian.. PUT IT BACK ON!!!!
This was an amazing and unique show that needs to be brought back to TV. There was not another show quite like it, and it should NEVER have been cancelled!! Instead of being some mindless show about next to nothing, it was really, really interesting!! Maybe if enough people complain, it will come back!!!
I love this show. This may or may not sound sad but I actually tried to schedule around it to catch it. I was greatly amused by Dr. Lightman's antics. I was even amused by the sometimes pouting Eli Loker. I admit I enjoy all of the characters (their quarks & personalities) in, Lie to Me*. I would be delighted if the show continued on Fox (channel 32.. I don't have cable) for another season or two.
I have been watching this show since day one!!!!!!!!!!! Broke girls made the cut, are you serious. Lie to me was tantalizing and different.....I can not believe this......oh lets just keep all the stupid shows and get rid of all the ones that actually make you use your brain a little.
