"Lie To Me," which debuted in January and stars Tim Roth as an expert on the nonverbal clues that signal deception, got middling-to-pretty-good reviews and respectable ratings (which declined during the first season's 13 episodes, but that's normal for many new shows).

Shawn Ryan with a bit more on "Truth or Consequences": "It’s not even a main story, but we have what I think is a really fun B story [this episode]. They’ve been hired by the IRS to help them investigate this religious compound. Every homeowner there is claiming that their house is a church for tax purposes, which is something that’s really happening in this country, which is technically acceptable if your religious beliefs are 100 percent pure, and you’re not doing this for financial motivation. Accountants can’t determine that, but our crew can. What it leads to, because it’s Foster and Loker who are on that case – it leads to a little introspection about religion between these two characters who have very different views. Foster’s trying to, in the wake of her divorce, still go through the adoption process that she and her husband had started when they were a couple, but that she’s having difficulty with. And it leads to a little bit of a, you know, religious and emotional crisis for her."To read the entire article head over to the link below.'Lie to Me's' makeover: The truth from Tim Roth and Shawn Ryan
