Lie To Me 1.10 Better Half (2009)

Lightman’s expertise is called upon by his ex-wife Zoe Landau (some sort of state attorney) in the case of an arson where a child was injured and a grandmother died. Another child claims he saw a TV reporter start the fire but while Lightman doesn’t think he is lying, he doesn’t think he is telling the truth either.

7/10

Though this is directed without pace and feels much longer than it should, there is more than enough plot turns to keep things interesting. Jennifer Beals turns up as Lightman’s ex-wife and bears an uncanny resemblance to on-screen daughter Hayley McFarland; from looks alone you could easily believe them to be related.
