Quick spoilers for last night's "Lie to Me" coming up just as soon as I tell you what I do for a living...
An episode where the main character gets taken hostage is a card every drama gets to play once, at most, so they need to make it a good one or else not bother. "House" muffed it last season, but I thought the "Lie to Me" team did a good job with the old cliche, aided by the always-stellar Garret Dillahunt as the hostage-taker (who took a very thin character and made it compelling) and strong work from Tim Roth and Kelli Williams.
The show is clearly traveling down the road of Unresolved Sexual Tension with Lightman and Foster, and we'll deal with that when it happens, but I'm glad they didn't push it too far here. Gillian would've been just as wigged if she didn't secretly want to jump Cal's bones, and I liked that his request for a sleepover at the end of that lousy day was platonic.
What did everybody else think?
