美国时间2009年9月29日，Fox的连续剧Lie to me第二季终于开播了，每周二播出，目前已经出到第3集。年前经朋友介绍看了这部片子，第一季一共13集，意犹未尽，期待第二季很长时间了。今天在这里记载一下。
Cal Lightman博士是位权威的鉴谎专家，他天赋异禀，能轻易看穿精心打造的各种谎言，愤怒、愧疚、蔑视、悲伤，一切微表情都逃不过他的眼睛。他的搭档 Gillian Foster博士，精通心理学，极富洞察力，相较于Lightman的直截了当，更善处理人际关系。Eli Loker是Lightman的研究员，他最初坚持只说真话，后来却慢慢破了戒，最终被降为实习生，停薪查看。Ria Torres是Lightman从机场挖来的鉴谎天才，她初出茅庐却野心勃勃，妄图挑战Lightman的权威。
在第一季精彩纷呈的故事中，Lightman集团帮助政府、FBI、当地警察、法律公司乃至大型企业破获了多起重大案件，那么新一季中他和他的团队将会迎 来什么挑战？Lightman和前妻暧昧不清的关系，Foster和丈夫岌岌可危的婚姻将走向何处？Loker和Torres两人能否及时认清自我、找到 定位？ 最新加入的常规角色，FBI探员Ben Reynolds又将为这个性格各异的团队注入什么变化?
Entering its intriguing second season, LIE TO ME is the compelling drama series inspired by the scientific discoveries of a real-life psychologist who can read clues embedded in the human face, body and voice to expose the truth and lies in criminal investigations.
DR. CAL LIGHTMAN (Tim Roth) is the world’s leading deception expert. If you lie to Lightman, he’ll see it in your face and your posture or hear it in your voice. If you shrug your shoulder, rotate your hand or even just slightly raise your lower lip, Lightman will spot the lie. By analyzing facial expressions and involuntary body language, he can read feelings ranging from hidden resentment to sexual attraction to jealousy. His work gives him the knowledge and skill set to expertly deceive others as well as detect lies. But as Lightman well knows, his scientific ability is both a blessing and a curse in his personal life, where family and friends deceive each other as readily as criminals and strangers do.
Lightman heads a team of experts at The Lightman Group who assist federal law enforcement, government agencies and local police with their most difficult cases. DR. GILLIAN FOSTER (Kelli Williams) is a gifted psychologist and Lightman’s professional partner who brings balance to the partnership by looking at the bigger picture while Lightman focuses on the details. He needs her guidance and insight into human behavior, whether he knows it or not.
ELI LOKER (Brendan Hines) is Lightman’s lead researcher. He is so uncomfortable with the human tendency to lie that he usually practices what he calls “radical honesty.” He says everything on his mind and often pays the price. RIA TORRES (Monica Raymund) is the newest member of the agency and one of the few “naturals” in the field of deception detection. Her raw, untrained ability to read people makes her a force to be reckoned with.
Last season, an arson investigation reconnected Lightman and his ex-wife, Assistant U.S. Attorney ZOE LANDAU (guest star Jennifer Beals), while FBI Agent BEN REYNOLDS (Mekhi Phifer) became a permanent partner of The Lightman Group after he helped them track down and capture an elusive serial rapist who was behind a rash of bombings in the Washington, DC area.
Season Two continues with new lies and life-changing situations for The Lightman Group as they encounter new cases, including a woman with multiple-personality disorder (Erika Christensen, “Traffic”) whose lies as one personality may be true for another personality. Additionally, Lightman will work to solve a homicide while held at gunpoint during a hostage situation. He will also struggle with his rival, who stirs up trouble and creates tension among Lightman’s employees. These cases require the team to look further and search deeper, not only to determine who is lying but why. In their personal lives, after Foster’s marriage collapses, she explores the possibilities of life as a single woman, while Lightman tries to come to terms with his own mysterious past.
Created by Samuel Baum, LIE TO ME is executive-produced by Shawn Ryan, Brian Grazer, David Nevins, Daniel Voll, Samuel Baum, Dan Sackheim, Vahan Moosekian, Liz Craft and Sarah Fain. Dr. Paul Ekman serves as scientific consultant. The series is produced by Imagine Television in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Dan Sackheim directed the season premiere episode.
