REVIEW: LIE TO ME SEASON ONE
OVERVIEW: The average person tells three lies in ten minutes of conversation. From writer
Samuel Baum (“The Evidence”) and the executive producers of “24” and “Arrested Development” comes
“Lie To Me,” a compelling 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 truth and lies in criminal investigations. On Blu-ray Disc and DVD, the first season debuts
August 25 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
SYNOPSIS: “Lie To Me” stars Oscar® nominee*
Tim Roth (“The Incredible Hulk”) as Dr. Cal Lightman, the world’s leading deception expert, and his
company The Lightman Group, who study facial expressions and involuntary body language to discover if
someone is lying and why. Assisting federal law enforcement, government agencies and local police with
their most difficult cases, the agency consists of Dr. Gillian Foster (Kelli Williams, “The Practice”), a gifted
psychologist; Eli Loker (Brendan Hines, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Lightman’s
professional partner and lead researcher; and Ria Torres (Monica Raymund, “Law & Order Special Victims
Unit”), the newest member of the agency with an innate ability to read people. In the groundbreaking first
season of the hit show, the drama unfolds as the team is faced with numerous cases to unravel including a
student fleeing a murder scene, a college basketball player accused of accepting a bribe from his university, a
NASA test pilot accused of intentionally crashing a multimillion dollar aircraft, and much more!
BLU-RAY: Lie To Me
Season One is presented in a stunning 1080P widescreen with
a 1.78:1 preserving its television format. The transfer
looks very clean with flawless pictures, giving the film the
clarity that only high definition can provide. 20th Century
Fox Home Entertainment did a phenomenal job in this
transfer. Not only the picture looks excellent in this
release, also the sound it is good, a 5.1 Dolby TrueHD in
English that provides a nice complement to the picture. It
also subtitles in Spanish, French and Portuguese.
The Blu-ray and DVD
includes all 13 original episodes. Unfortunately in terms of
special features this release felt short. It only includes a
decent behind the scenes featurette and deleted scenes.
Overall Lie To Me Season One
proof to be the next big thing for Tim Roth after The
Incredible Hulk. The 13 episodes are
intense and exciting. Just in terms of the concept the
series is very attractive to fans of investigation series.
The producers of 24 delivered another outstanding show.
Definitely "Lie To Me" was one of the best drama in
