It looks like 'Fringe' isn't the only Fox series dealing with an alternate reality this season.

According to Variety, the network's detective drama 'Lie to Me' will feature almost the entire cast of 'The Shield' in an upcoming episode. While 'Shield' lead Michael Chiklis is not involved, no fewer than seven other regulars from the critically acclaimed FX series, which ended last November after seven seasons, will guest star in the episode.

Review: Lie to Me - Black Friday

Lie to Me: Black Friday
(S02E07) "Finally got you thinking like a criminal. Wonders will never cease." - Cal to Gillian

I have to admit, that image of Cal Lightman in a girlie apron still makes me laugh out loud. Lie to Me may have scored a place in our drama category here on TV Squad, but in our household, we laugh all the way through the show. That's partly because my son does a perfect Cal Lightman impression, with his penguin walk and in-your-face look to see whether you're lying or not.

But on to this episode -- the perfect scenario for Lightman and team, in figuring out Max's lineage. I lost track of how many cold cases they solved along the way. Lots.

Twins on Television

It's official - this little girl is all grown up. I know it because at a party last week, a friend told me how much an actress on 'Bones' reminds her of me, and a bunch of complete strangers agreed.

Well it was actually a bit more complicated than that, because it took everyone a while to figure out which forensic procedural they meant - 'NCIS' and the various 'CSI's came up, but in the end it proved that Micheala Conlin, who plays Angela on 'Bones' was the doppelganger in question.

I am so flattered.

Not because Conlin is beautiful, which she is, or even because she's sort of famous, or because the character she plays is smart. I'm flattered because Conlin is not Lacey Chabert.

I'd never want Cal Lightman as my dad ... or would I?

Tim Roth's Cal Lightman on Lie to MeFirst of all, I think most parents have a built-in lie detector in their brain. It's not something they're born with. It's something that starts to develop as soon as they have kids and gets stronger as the kids enter their teenage years.

In last night's episode of Lie To Me, Cal Lightman had reason to rifle through his daughter Emily's dresser drawers, in which he found a fake ID and birth control pills. Then he went ballistic. At one point, Emily berated him for "reading" her, something he promised he'd never do.

My question is this: if you have an amazing lie detection talent, why on earth wouldn't you be reading your kids all the time?

What to Watch: October 5 -11

Bones (Wednesday, 8 pm, Global/Fox)

Brennan and Booth investigate remains found during a suburban block party. On a cul-de-sac. Where everyone has secret lives. Yes, basically, 'Bones' is visiting Wisteria Lane for an episode. Imagine how much faster that whole 'bones in the swimming pool' mystery would have been solved if they'd visited back in season 1.

Lie to Me picks up steam - anyone else watching?

Jennifer Beals and Tim Roth in Lie to MeI had just gotten into watching The L Word when it got the ax, but at least now we can see more of Jennifer Beals. She guest-starred in two episodes of Lie to Me last season, and will have a recurring role in the upcoming season, playing Assistant U.S. Attorney Zoe Landau, Cal Lightman's ex-wife and mother of their teenage daughter.

Mekhi Phifer (Dr. Gregory Pratt from ER), who also appeared in two episodes, will come back as FBI agent Reynolds, brought in as a liaison between the Lightman Group and the FBI for those tough cases the FBI can't solve through traditional methods.

The show's second season kicks off Sept. 28 with Shawn Ryan as the new showrunner. He's got some great creds, having worked on The Unit, The Shield and Angel.

Lie to Me really seems to be picking up steam heading into its second season. We gotten a little hooked on it in this household, meaning it isn't "must-see" TV, but if we know it's on, we'll definitely check it out -- and pick up a few pointers on lie detection from Cal Lightman and crew.

Anyone else watching Lie to Me?

Lie to Me - An early look

Lie to Me - Tim Roth as Cal Lightman
If there's one thing we know about the American television landscape, it's that there just aren't enough procedurals on the air. And while CBS has managed to snatch most of them up before anyone else can get their hands on one, it looks like FOX managed to sneak one by the almighty Eye. And as with most crime dramas of this sort, it must differentiate itself from the others by having a little twist all its own. Lie to Me offers that twist in the form of Tim Roth's character, Cal Lightman, who is essentially a human lie detector.

Loosely based on the findings of author and professor of psychology Paul Ekman, FOX was kind enough to send along Ekman's book, Telling Lies, with the pilot so I could follow along and see which of his strategies were used on the show. Yeah, I didn't do that.
