According to his professionalism in the field of studying body language and facial expressions, in knowing who tells the truth and who lies, Dr. Cal Lightman, a young successful man, works for the police, in order to help them finding out the truth. In this new season, Cal does his best, in order to know whether a multi personality's woman has witnessed a murder or not.
The second season...has fluctuated wildly in quality since the day it hit the air, a fact that was underlined when the great Shawn Ryan...came on-board and seemed to find the program's personality, only to leave it and watch it drift again.
Roth is riveting. He plays Lightman with a combination of inscrutable intensity and loose-limbed nonchalance that elevates the entire show, even when the plots are a bit predictable or the story arcs uneven.
