Searched and couldn't find a thread... Lie to Me is an American television series that premiered on the Fox network on January 21, 2009. In the show, Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) and his colleagues in The Lightman Group accept assignments from third parties (commonly local and federal law enforcement), and assist in investigations, reaching the truth through applied psychology: interpreting microexpressions, through the Facial Action Coding System, and body language. I love this show so much- I'm addicted. I consider it a semi-educational TV show, so I don't feel so bad when I'm watching it.
