I hate crime shows.

I really do.  I could probably count on one hand the amount of times I have watched CSI or Law and O
rder.  Not to mention the thousand other crime shows that pollute on televisions, while wondrous shows like Friday Night Lights barely gets noticed.
So I was reluctant, if not annoyed, when Lie to Me (on Blu-Ray today!) showed up in my mailbox last week.  The show, which had a mid-season run earlier this year, is about a scientist , who can tell almost immediately if a person is lying.  Wait, I know what your thinking, “Silly Mike, that is what The Mentalist 
is about!”, and you wouldn’t be wrong.  But where the Mentalist is for our grand-parents and Simon Baker-ogglers, Lie To Me is surprisingly entertaining. 
I think it’s mostly because you can try to play a long.  You try to figure out which character is lying and more importantly how they are lying.  It’s not so much about what they are not telling the truth about, it’s how you figure out that they are lying.  It’s very interesting and can become very addictive.

After watching the first handful of episodes, I began to stare at everyone to see if they were lying.  I would look at the way their face would twitch or how their hand flinched. My friends, my bosses, my co-workers, my mailman. I was obsessed.  But can you blame me?  Mailmen are sooooo shady.
I’m glad I ended up checking out Lie to Me.  It was a lot more fun that I thought it was going to be and didn’t leave me feeling gloomy about how dangerous our world could be.  Out of all the shows that I get the opportunity to watch, Lie to Me is the rare one that I can’t wait to finish… for the right reasons. 
And I’m not lying.
