LIE TO ME “Beyond Belief” Review

LIE TO ME (FOX) Beyond Belief

LIE TO ME “Beyond Belief” Season 3 Episode 6 – Okay so here’s the problem I had with this episode. It felt like they used this storyline to make fun of these types of groups and I don’t hold with that. If people wanna go see a “guru” or burn candles or chant or whatever, I don’t care and I’m not going to make fun of them for it. There’s room for everyone in this wacky world of ours. Now, when it was about a guy who was a criminal and abandoned his family? That was fine. The guy was a scumbag for doing that and the moment he threatened Cal and his family, all bets were off and I wanted Cal to kick his ass.

But basically I just hated this whole storyline and so I found it very hard to watch without thinking that the whole time. This is very unusual for me and when the episode was over I tried to figure out if there were any redeeming qualities that I could talk about so that this review wouldn’t be about how much I disliked it. Then I realized that this was my review and, well, I can say whatever I want. It was very freeing, really.

With all that said though, I actually did have some favorite bits, believe it or not. Because I do still love these characters and they still did some things I thought were funny. I’m not going to not mention those things just because I didn’t like the storyline of this one particular episode.

So here they are, as always, my favorite bits..

Wondering if I was missing something about the whole coffee conversation and actually starting to suspect that Torres and Eli were going to do something else on their “coffee break”.

Cracking up at Cal thinking he was being “nice” to Liam. Wow, I’d hate to see what he’s like if he’s being mean. LOL.

Cal telling Emily that he had a problem with semicolons. You know, the first step is admitting you have a problem so I guess he’s on the right track.

Cal asking for a “big, wanky picture of myself” for his office. Oh man, I totally got an image in my head of Tim with the biggest shit-eating grin on his face. I would totally buy that poster.

Cal smashing a car window with a crow bar after he thought Emily was in danger. He doesn’t mess around, does he?

Wondering if Cal’s advice to “knife the nastiest bastard you can find” came from personal experience.

Liam nailing the definition of a semicolon. Good for him!

Torres and Eli getting caught talking smack about Lightman right in front of him. Oops. LOL.

Alright so what did you think of this episode of Lie to Me? Got any favorite bits or least favorite bits of your own? I’d love to hear from you!
