After two weeks of waiting, Lie to Me returned tonight with an all new episode, Love Always. I gotta say, I cannot get enough of this show, one of the few I look forward to every week. I love it.
This week was all about catching a shooter and finding out how to recognize their expression when they are about to shoot. And this is why Lie to Me is so great. Not only do you get a great story, but you actually learn some interesting things that you can use in your everyday life (or at least try to use).
For example, the best part of tonight's episode was when the best man gave the finger (as he scratched his face) to the groom unconsciously because he was mad at him. So the next time you talk to someone who scratches themselves with their middle finger, you know you must have done something to piss them off.
But Lie to Me would be nothing without the brilliant acting of Tim Roth. He just brings the show to a whole new level. And with the quality scripts that the writers keep coming up with, it's a match made in heaven. (Did I mention I like the show?)
But more on tonight's episode. I have to say that each new revelation came as a surprise to me. I didn't figure out that the bodyguard was really the son of the ambassador, and of course I didn't figure out that it was really the ex-husband of the bride who was behind the killing.
And finally, I have to ask this, when will Lightman tell Foster that her husband is lying to her? If I had to guess, I would say never, because let's face it, she knows he's lying to her. I mean she can tell when everyone else is lying to her, but she decides to ignore it on her husband. When she is ready to face the truth she'll see it herself. And if years of watching television have taught me anything is that Foster will at some point realize it, and I want to be there when that happens.
That's about it for tonight. What about you guys? Are there any cool expressions you enjoyed learning about? Were you able to apply some of the tricks you learned in the show in real life? Share your thoughts below.
