Hard to believe that this show has gone on for 3 seasons. The premise is far too linited to sustain much interest for me. Expert looks for minimal cues to reveal guilt or guilty knowledge. An eyebrow twitches, a chin juts out, a downward glance to the left, and hey presto, the criminal is exposed in a swift 45 minutes. The plots and solutions gallop along with hardly time to think about how thin and ridiculous they are and the characters are completely one-dimensional. How many times can twitches be clues until boredom sets in? This series is a one-trick pony show. Tim Roth is a good actor, but he is wasted on this. To be interesting, the story line and script should have been fleshed out from 45 minutes to 90 minute or 2 hour episodes. The series needs character development and depth and imaginative script writing. One gimmick is not enough to carry it.
I really liked this series and probably the only reason it even made it to a third season was tim roth. he brought some depth to an otherwise formula-driven show.
I watched this series after having seen "The Mentalist" and while I mostly enjoyed it, Tim Roth's anti-charismatic character became increasingly grating and one-dimensional, and the series as a whole didn't leave me wanting more of the same.
this show is amazing
I really enjoyed the first couple of episodes, but after that it started to feel repetitive. Just not enough to hold my interest. I really loved Tim Roth - his character is unique, while his sidekick reminds me of a commercial housewife.
This TV Series taught me a lot about body language as a whole.
this show will teach u something plus theirs a real doctor like this
Based on the real-life scientific discoveries of Paul Ekman
At the show's center is Lightman (Tim Roth), is a scientist whose area of expertise is detecting and interpreting "micro" expressions--(involuntary) a useful skill if you want to want to figure out whether someone's lying, and why. Lightman runs a consulting firm adept at solving mysteries for the police, FBI and pretty much any other client who needs a lie detector. Ekman believes there are about 1% of the population that does this naturally, and he trains law enforcement in the skill sets to become a human lie-detector.
Great science/crime drams especially if you are tired of the likes of flashpoint and others that really tell the same story over and over.
Dr Ekman's site is worthwhile too
