TV Episode Review – Lie To Me: React To Contact

Tim Roth and Enver Gjokaj in Lie To Me

Here’s a little snippet from my latest ‘Lie To Me’ review, up at Daemon’s TV

….Words cannot express how excited I was when I saw that Enver Gjokaj was going to be in this week’s episode of Lie To Me, titled ‘React To Contact’. I was extremely impressed with his work on Dollhouse and when that show was sadly cancelled, I really hoped this talented actor would keep on working. I was also excited to see Alona Tal, whom I’ve been a fan of since her work on another of my favorite shows, Supernatural.

In this episode of Lie To Me, these two guest stars play a married couple dealing with the trauma of a husband who is apparently suffering from PTSD after returning home from war. Everyone seems convinced that it’s a cut and dry case, but…….read more at Deamon’s TV

TV Episode Review – Lie To Me: Sweet Sixteen

by on Jun.16, 2010, under Crime, Drama, Television

Tim Roth in Lie To Me

Even though I missed about ten minutes from the middle of this episode (DVR issues, sigh), I still saw plenty enough to know that it was amazing. From the very beginning – starting with the explosion which made me jump about six inches, to Eli’s slow walk into the building, bloody and in shock – I knew we were in for something great.

It turns out that the bomb killed a man that was Cal’s boss back when he was working with the Pentagon. Back then he and Foster were doctor and patient. Cal had been sent to her after suffering from the mental trauma of accidentally causing the death of an innocent woman and child. He did a read on a man who he thought was going to cause trouble and someone in the Pentagon decided to go after the guy, only they got the man’s wife and daughter instead.

Doyle (played by Angus Macfayden), the man who Cal is sure is behind it all, comes to him to say that he didn’t plant the bomb and Cal helps him to find out who did. In getting to the truth, he tracks it down to the Assistant Deputy Director of the Dept of National Intelligence. From there, he’s able to find the man who actually pulled the trigger that day and allows Doyle to finally get what he’s always wanted. Only the former terrorist doesn’t want to kill the man, he just wants to help get him arrested for what he’s done to his family.

The ending was a bit of a double shock to me. First off, we find out that Lightman admitted that he knew when he read Doyle as a threat that they’d kill him. Then we also find out that all those years ago Foster had been told that if she didn’t keep Cal under control, that they would have killed his family. So all this time she’s been lying to him and he never knew it. Wow.

As always, I enjoyed the foray into the backstory between characters that this episode brought us, going so far as to show us the day that Lightman and Foster first met.

Positively Positive Review – Lie To Me: Beat The Devil

by on Jun.08, 2010, under Crime, Drama, Television

Lie To Me picture image Beat The Devil

Well after what felt like the longest hiatus ever, a brand new Lie To Me finally came on the air last night and boy was I happy to see it return.

In this episode, Cal once again goes up against a raging lunatic. The problem this time is that no one believes him. He finds the man not during a case given to him by the FBI, but while simply doing a lecture for an old friend. A student in the class appears to get the upper hand on Cal but really all he’s done is expose himself for what he is, a murderer. From then on, Cal never lets up until finally he finds himself at the business end of the other man’s psychosis and uses nothing but his mind to get out of it.

Right before posting this review, I looked up the actor who played the psychopath (Martin) and discovered it was Jason Dohring from Moonlight. I never saw that show but after watching his performance in this episode, I think I may have to rent it. The funniest part though was realizing that I used to teach his younger siblings horseback riding back when I worked as a riding instructor. Small world. LOL.

My favorite bits…

Knowing as soon as I saw the headlights on the car that it would turn out to be a guy bringing a woman to the woods to bury her and wondering what that says about me. Maybe I watch a little too much tv.

Also knowing the moment the guy in the class contradicted Lightman that he was the guy driving the car. I never doubted it for a second.

Getting a shiver when Lightman pointed out that the guy couldn’t like whatever was in the picture and it turned out to be the cute girl as described. Then the guy liking the picture of the man tied to a chair. Creeeepy!!

As always, really digging the intro done to ‘Brand New Day’ by Ryan Star. It just never gets old.

Lightman telling the Principal that he was doing to do “sod all” (British phrase that basically means “nothing”). Man I love it when he talks all British like that.

“One should not shag one’s students. Especially the psycho ones.” – LOL, great line.

The appearance of Howard Hesseman as a teacher who’s sure he saw a UFO. I have always loved this guy and not just because he totally reminds me of my uncle.

The way Cal was so sure about Martin and the two of them playing cat and mouse – Call following Martin and Martin showing up at Cal’s office, etc.

Helen warning Gillian that Cal isn’t one for the “long haul”. Aw, that was pretty sad.

Eli spotting that the kid knew something about the UFO’s and getting the truth out of him about what he saw.

Not being able to hold back a laugh when I saw who was playing Martin’s mother. Lee Garlington played a mother of a psycho son on NCIS too, a mother who was also a psycho herself.

The way the mother apologized to her son making me think that she knew about what he did and was scared of him.

Freaking out when Martin found Ria in the coffee shop and she fell for his act. Eek!

Seeing how shook up Ria was after realizing who Martin was. I almost thought she was going to defend him because he didn’t hurt her, but apparently she read him and knew he was lying. Whew.

Finding out just how sick Martin was – waterboarding girls and then bringing them back to do it again and agin. Oh man that is…unreal.

Cal finally getting through to Martin and making him break when he brought up his relationship with Helen. Nice.

Jumping when Martin lost control in Helen’s office and then seeing Cal come out of the other room and knowing it was all a set up. Oh man, so scary.

Completely, totally and utterly losing it when Martin got hold of Cal and put him through the torture he did to the girls. I never, ever thought that would happen. I was prepared for Martin to go after Ria or Helen, or even Gillian, but Cal himself? That blew me away.

Even after being kidnapped, tortured and quite literally killed (multiple times), Cal still manages to stay in control and gets the story out of Martin. Why he let his sister and even spotting where the bodies were buried. Damn, that man is good.

Cal asking Gillian to catch a bite and watching the wheels turn in her head as she remembered what Helen said about him. I thought the two of them were only friends but if she turned him down, I wonder if that means she’s starting to think of him as more than that.

Overall a nail bitingly exciting episode.

Positively Positive Review – Lie To Me: Tractor Man

There were so many great things in this episode; I hardly know where to begin. I guess I’ll start with the cast. In addition to the already wonderful regulars, we also got Miguel Ferrer as FBI Agent Steele (aka Agent Reynolds’ boss) and Felicia Day as a schoolteacher.

I’ve been a fan of Miguel’s for years and was so happy when I saw he was in this episode. I love seeing great actors on screen together and I was absolutely giddy over Miguel acting alongside Tim. Miguel’s character was not a bad guy, but in his fight to ensure that no one was hurt by a crazed bomber, he and Lightman go head to head on a few issues.

As for Felicia, I of course loved her in Dr. Horrible and when I saw her come on screen, I quite literally squealed out loud. Yes I’m that easy to please. She played the part of a scared schoolteacher looking out for her students very well. Getting to hear her sing again was a special treat. I had no idea that Brendan Hines could sing or play guitar and that little song they did together was so cute and catchy, I found that I couldn’t resist singing along either.

You can catch a clip of the song “White Lie” here.

Overall a riveting yet fun episode, with some great guest stars and some musical moments, the latter of which I’d never thought to see on this series.
