    Lie To Me- Fox

    The average person tells three lies in ten minutes of conversation.

    DR. CAL LIGHTMAN (Tim Roth, "The Incredible Hulk," "Reservoir Dogs") can detect the truth by analyzing a person's face, body, voice and speech. When someone shrugs his shoulder, rotates his hand or raises his lower lip, Lightman knows he's lying. By analyzing facial expressions, he can read feelings - from hidden resentment to sexual attraction to jealousy. But as Lightman well knows, his scientific ability is both a blessing and a curse in his personal life, where family and friends deceive each other as readily as criminals and strangers do. Lightman is the world's leading deception expert, a scientist who studies facial expressions and involuntary body language to discover not only if you are lying but why.

    From writer Samuel Baum ("The Evidence") and the executive producers of 24 and "Arrested Development" comes LIE TO ME, a compelling new drama series inspired by the scientific discoveries of Dr. Paul Ekman, a real-life specialist who can read clues embedded in the human face, body and voice to expose both the truth and lies in criminal investigations.

    Lightman heads a team of experts at The Lightman Group who assist federal law enforcement, government agencies and local police with their most difficult cases. DR. GILLIAN FOSTER (Kelli Williams, "The Practice") is a gifted psychologist and Lightman's professional partner who brings balance to the partnership by looking at the bigger picture while Lightman focuses on the details. He needs her guidance and insight into human behavior, whether he knows it or not. ELI LOKER (Brendan Hines, TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES) is Lightman's lead researcher, who is so uncomfortable with the human tendency to lie that he's decided to practice what he calls "radical honesty." He says everything on his mind at all times and often pays the price. RIA TORRES (Monica Raymund, "Law and Order: SVU") is the newest member of the agency, and one of the few "naturals" in the field of deception detection. She has a raw, untrained ability to read people that makes her a force to be reckoned with.

    Samuel Baum, Brian Grazer, David Nevins and Steven Maeda serve as executive producers on the series, which is produced by Imagine Television and 20th Century Fox Television. Robert Schwentke directed the pilot.

    Is anyone else watching? I finally had a chance to see the premiere episode and I thought it was actually pretty good. I didn't have high hopes for it, but overall it's definitely going on my watch list. I don't know if it's one I'll watch all the time, but I'm going to tape it and watch for sure.

    I caught the premiere and thought it was good. But like you, I'm wary of new shows because they get canceled so fast these days.

    I completely agree. The networks have really done a number on viewers, haven't they? They offer what appears to be good shows and then yank them away. I am DVR'ing it and watching it over the weekends too, but not too convinced it will last.

    I really enjoyed it.
    I liked that they showed brief footage from actual trials to illustrate his points.
    I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that it'll get a decent run.

    I really liked the one they scouted at the airport. She does not miss a thing.

    For some reason she reminds me of Ana Lucia from LOST.

    Another good episode this week, I thought.
    It was a little cheesy when they gave the basketball player cash for school at the end, but I still said "awwwww" as she handed over the envelope, because I'm soft like that.
    This show is already a "cannot miss" for me.

    I watched last night and I really liked it. A lot better than I thought I would.

    Really good follow up episode. I agree, slightly cheesy with the money, but I also "awwed".
    I set it to tape Wednesday and for some reason my VCR (yes, VCR) didn't record it. I was actually bummed! So glad they replayed it Friday night!
