  • Even better than the premiere!

    This was an improvement on a very good premiere episodes, with this one specifically about a bequty pageant, and the accusations of child molestation. The case took a few interesting turns, which mad e it an interesting one to watch,

    And a good thing about this episode was the fact tht this was pretty unique from anything ever done before on this show. It is great when they come up with unique and innovative situations, because it just feels fresh! Full marks for this aspect of the episoed!

    I alos enjoyed the struggle Lightman faced in writing the start of his book. They were some interesting scnes, and I enjoyed the episodes' ending. All up, it was a great episode, better than the premiere which was also good! Keep it up, Lie To Me! I'm very imprseessed!moreless
