This season’s Lie To Me has been a nail biter, ratings wise as well as plot-wise, as the show has been slowly building its audience Monday nights at 9:00. Two months ago, FOX only ordered three more episodes, calling the long term future of the Tim Roth show into question. Fortunately, new show runner Shawn Ryan’s sure touch at the helm has brought critics on board this procedural with a difference and fans of the show gave a sigh of relief when FOX decided in late November to order the back nine episodes for the spring.
That makes this Monday’s episode the fall finale and it looks to be very exciting with a good dose of cute on the side. That’s an entertaining combination for the talented cast to work with and I’m looking forward to “The Tractor Man.”
The plot concerns a very unhappy farmer who expresses his anger during a political protest by parking his explosives-packed tractor in Washington D.C. near the Treasury Department building, forcing Lightman to get involved and make some very critical decisions in this dangerous situation.
Meanwhile, as luck would have it, a third grade class is having a field trip in the Lightman Group offices and can’t leave the building. Loker (Brendan Hines) is drafted into babysitting the kids, and Hines, who has his own band, gets to show his musical talents as he teaches the kids about lying. Take a sneak peek at Loker’s hidden talent as a children’s entertainer in “The Tractor Man,” this Monday at 9:00 PM (ET/PT) on FOX.
Lie To Me stars Tim Roth as Cal Lightman, Kelli Williams as Gillian Foster, Monica Raymund as Ria Torres, Brendan Hines as Eli Loker, Mekhi Phifer as FBI Agent Ben Reynolds, and Hayley McFarland as Lightman’s daughter, Emily.
