Lie To Me Season 2 Episode 1

After months of waiting, it’s back!

Was it worth it?

First some credits:

LTMs2e1001
Look! We now have a credit for episode music!

LTMs2e1002

LTMs2e1003

LTMs2e1004
Well surprise! During his summer hiatus, Cal Lightman has done a book.

LTMs2e1005

LTMs2e1006
He’s still using an iPhone.

LTMs2e1007

LTMs2e1008
We never saw that effect in the first season!

We get our first array of expressions:

LTMs2e1010

LTMs2e1011

LTMs2e1012
Each one is punctuated by a “Look, you moron! Expressions!” explosive beat. Really, the viewers of this series don’t need that overkill.

More expressions …

LTMs2e1013

LTMs2e1014

LTMs2e1015
… thankfully not punctuated with blasts of sound.

But wait! Here it comes:

BOOM!

LTMs2e1016

BOOM!

LTMs2e1017

BOOM!

This next sequence is for @ScottMcKain @TomZiglar and @redstarvip:

LTMs2e1019
“Look, what do you want to be when you grow up?”

LTMs2e1020
“I am grown up.”

LTMs2e1021
“Terrific. What are you?”

LTMs2e1022
“. . . I’m … I’m a …”

LTMs2e1023
“You’re on your way to …

LTMs2e1024
“… becoming one of the world’s leading experts in deception.”

LTMs2e1025
“. . . ”

LTMs2e1026
“But up here …”

LTMs2e1027
“… you’re still a baggage screener at the airport.”

LTMs2e1028
“Til you change that …”

LTMs2e1029
“… you’ll always think that you’re not ready.”

Nice little touch, that.

LTMs2e1030
What is he doing with his thumb and forefinger?!!?

Then the twin horrors of the episode:

LTMs2e1031
Gillian in pink!

And it gets even worse:

LTMs2e1032
Cal in a suit! A suit!! I don’t recall him in a suit at all last season!

It was an interesting episode, but some points were annoying:

1) The new FBI agent. He’s very annoying.
2) Cal strangling the girl. I understood the point but it felt forced.

The first season had more quiet moments in each episode. This seemed to go rat-a-tat-tat. Let’s see how it all develops.
