Review - Lie to Me Season 2 Episode 10 Tractor Man

The episode definitely wasn't as strong as some this season. The A-plot was the tractor bomb, but there was no real tension or suspense created, and the procedural element with Torres visiting the houses with mostly a mess.

Cal as always took control of the situation even though the FBI was hanging around and decided to solve the situation by himself. The biggest problem with the episode and the show is that while there is a palpable tension that few procedurals reach, in the back of my, Cal is always right, so I don't expect anything bad to happen.

The best part of the episode was the addition of the kids and Felicia Day who interacted with Loker and sang possibly the cutest song ever "White Lies." The kids served to make the episode cute instead of tense which I think was the intent. As a midseason finale, the episode should have been more exhilarating than cute, but it was a fine episode.

Score: 8.8/10
