The Morning After: Tell Me the Truth, Now

When Lie to Me debuted last season, I was impressed not just with Tim Roth’s performance but with the show’s procedural efficiency, its blend of science and story, and, above all, its whole-hearted embrace of its essentially cynical (and I don’t mean that as an insult) premise: everyone, or nearly everyone, lies. That said, it wasn’t the type of show that I was going to watch weekly or find something to write about weekly.

But the new season—with The Shield’s Shawn Ryan having taken over as showrunner—has been getting renewed praise (and some decent ratings). I haven’t watched last night’s yet, and with a deadline looming, won’t be doing so anytime soon, so I’ll put it to you: is this drama you can put your trust in?
