Review - Lie to Me Season 3 Episode 6 Beyond Belief

Last week I said that Lightman constantly getting into dangerous situations is dumb since he never gets hurt and cheapens the dramatic effect. In "Beyond Belief," however, Lightman is brash, but also not in mortal danger, justifying his behavior. It's one thing to get into people's faces when you can die and it's another to get into people's faces with other people around and the police available.

Taking on cult-ish leaders is nothing new, so the plot itself isn't spectacular. The leader is magnetic and people seem to love him, but in reality he's a scumbag who needs to be taken down a notch. And that's where Cal, a more benevolent bully, comes around and reveals the truth. The rest of the episode is standard with the usual fake tension, this time with the chance that Emily may be hurt even though everyone watching knows it's not going to happen.

Liam looks really old... like in his twenties. Cal doesn't seem to mind, though.

Score: 8.4/10
