Lie to Me

I just watched the pilot of FOX's new crime show on Hulu. Tim Roth plays Dr. Cal Lightman, a renowned expert on lying with a tarnished reputation. In the pilot, Lightman and his team (Kelli Williams, Brendan Hines, Monica Raymund) take on the case of a high school student (Jake Thomas) accused to murdering his teacher. Like most niche procedurals, Lie to Me highlights the role of its particular science in crime-solving, but that's fine by me as a psych minor and body language buff (and a terrible liar).

I thought it was interesting and has potential.

I am a very big fan of Tim Roth, so I hope the show does well.
