Lie To Me 2.08 Secret Santa (2009)

Lightman is sent to Afghanistan (!) to determine whether a captured American-turned-Taliban is telling the truth when he says he knows the location of two missing American soldiers.

1/10

This is quite staggeringly unconvincing in every aspect of writing and story. Sadly, this show has turned out to be a one-season wonder and with this dreadful episode it has become time to stop watching.

This Lie To Me episode contains gun violence, extremely unpleasant scene.
