One of the best TV shows ever
11 September 2014 | by marwen-heniSee all my reviews

Lie to me is exactly the kind of show you'd like to watch. The cast is great, especially Tim Roth with his unusual and perfect acting in portraying Dr Lightman, and Kelli Williams who fits greatly in the role of Dr Foster. The concept of the show is great, and presenting the science of deception and the studies of Dr Paul Ekman were pretty much well done. I read Dr Ekman books but I can't deny that the show was a practical application of my readings. I'm also a fan of Tim Roth and choosing him for this role was absolutely perfect. Throughout the 3 seasons, his character developed a lot and I'm pretty sure he worked hard to make the Lightman character even more attractive.
