Lie to Me
Tim Roth’s crime procedural Lie to Me has not gotten a back nine order and will finish out its current 13 episode season. While not officially canceled, this means that FOX is just waiting to see how its new shows do before closing shop. The series is currently in its third season and has been struggling in the ratings department. Roth stars as Dr. Cal Lightman, an expect in telling if people are telling the truth.

The Walking Dead
The first season of The Walking Dead has come to a close and has set Cable ratings records with more than 6 million viewers. As a comparison, the critically acclaimed and Emmy darling Mad Men gets less than half the viewers of the zombie series. While I was surprised by the finale, I was also a bit disappointed in the episode. It was the weakest of the six episode season and I hate the fact that they tried to explain the zombies and confirm that they aren’t human anymore. And that they have no memory or idea of what they once were. I would have preferred the ending of the first graphic novel, “Days Gone Bye.” Regardless of the weak ending, I still very much enjoyed the season and I’ll be waiting on the edge of my seat for season 2. I just hope they decide to air it well before the rumored start date of October 2011.

My favorite show on TV, Chuck, might be on a six week break, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop watching the show. Twelve episodes are up online to watch for free, along with a bunch of Web Exclusives. I can’t wait to see what happens next with Linda Hamilton and Timothy Dalton’s characters, both of which have been great additions to the already awesome cast.

Thanks for the guest post from Isaiah Gaines.

By far, my favorite TV crime show is Lie to Me. It’s a Fox series that I watch on direct tv. In the show The Lightman Group, headed by Cal Lightman, use applied psychology to solve crimes. They are all trained to recognize body language, or micro-expressions that individuals are not aware they are sending out. This is all based on real-life scientific discoveries. Through these expressions they can tell if someone is lying or what emotion they are feeling. Of course, they tell about some of these micro-expressions that they are seeing, but it’s fun to try and catch the ones they don’t mention.

Cal Lightman is the main character on the show. He’s divorced with a teenage daughter, which makes for interesting secondary plots. Of course there is no end of material when working with the teenage years. Cal has a very serious personality, which could use a bit of a sense of humor now and again. Jillian Foster is Cal’s right hand. She is in the midst of constant marital troubles, which offers some interesting side plots. Ria and Eli are lower level employees of the agency. Eli has constant dissatisfaction with his job. Ria has a natural gift of reading people, but often lets emotion color her analysis. It’s like they are still in training and not yet up to par with Cal and Jillian.
