Lie to Me: Truth or Consequences

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Oct 6th 2009 11:40AM

Lightman (Tim Roth, R) and his ex-wife Zoe (guest star Jennifer Beals, L) work against an old rival (guest star James Marsters, C) on a case in the LIE TO ME episode 'Truth or Consequences.'
(S02E02) "I mean, how can I not judge someone who creates their own harem and then tosses out the competition when they hit puberty?" - Foster

Already this is shaping up to be leaps and bounds ahead of season one of Lie to Me. The cases are more interesting, the writing is tighter, and most importantly, it's becoming far more personal for the employees of The Lightman Group. Every case has far more meaning when Cal and his team are in it for more than just a paycheck. That isn't to say that I'm against seeing cases like we saw in the season premiere with Erika Christensen, but finding out that Cal's daughter Emily has a connection to a statutory rape case he's investigating is far more compelling.

Dirt: Dirty Slutty Whores

(S02E02) "Let's just figure out how her Daddy's gonna use his money to get his little girl off... did I just say that? Huh, oddly aroused." - Lucy

At first glance, Dirt may not look all that original to a new viewer. Granted we're only two episodes into the new season, but bear with me for a second. In the most noticeable departure from last season, these first two installments have relied heavily on recent tabloid headlines. It was something we saw in season one (such as Rick Fox's portrayal of a basketball star based loosely on his former teammate Kobe Bryant), but not as much. The fun this season comes from seeing where the tabloid headlines end and the creativity of Dirt's writers begins.

What About Brian: What About the Wedding

Sarah Lancaster as Marjorie on What About Brian.(S02E02) I'm impressed. This show was good last year but the changes made in the off-season were all for the better. Even some of the little things that other shows might not take the time to tie up, What About Brian goes and takes that extra step to keep it's own little world intact. Take the Angelo storyline. The actor (Raoul Bova) has been released from the show, but rather than do what some shows would have done and just forget his character even existed in the off-season, he's still "there." Nic has daily phone conversations with him until it becomes clear that he won't make it back in time for Adam and Marjorie's wedding. It just makes Angelo's transition from being on the show to being off it that much smoother.

Criminal Minds: P911

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Sep 28th 2006 12:13PM
Criminal Minds(S02E02) I have to admit... this episode was a bit of a letdown. I just figured that they'd keep the pace going for at least a couple episodes, especially after such a big return last week. Not the case. We're back into the normal swing, and as much as I love this show, I wanted more. I was hoping we'd get some story on the repercussions of what The Fisher King did. I've read a few things though, and I think we're going to get them, but not in the way that many people would expect.
