Lie To Me Season 1 Episode 8

Lie To Me‘s eighth episode did something I didn’t like …

… it dispensed with the theme visuals and song and went straight into the episode!

Techspotting: At first I thought that was a T-Mobile G1 Android phone. Closer inspection makes me think it’s actually a Sidekick.

Credits for a very dark episode that was more suited to the series Millennium!

Three young women from India commit suicide in the span of a few weeks. Were they really suicides? If so, what prompted them? And were the three connected?

But the most interesting aspect of the episode was story two as well as further insight into Dr. Cal Lightman, who is seen privately viewing an old 16mm film reel …

… that woman was the inspiration for Cal Lightman thinking up micro-expressions!

It wasn’t until the end of Act One that we get a title card from the theme visuals!

The second story involved an investment manager who has seemingly cheated thousands out of millions in investment money.

Another aspect of The Lightman Group’s truth-seeking methodology was highlighted: language and word choices.

Loker correctly identifies the ilk of the investment manager as being sociopaths. His hatred of them is second only to my own!

I won’t spoil the episode. I should have seen who that woman was. I give a Lie To Me-like spoiler by showing Lightman’s expression.
