The Cal-and-Emily relationship on Lie to Me may be the cutest father/daughter relationship on all TV ever. The rest of the show? Pfft, whatever. But Cal and Emily? So much love.

That said, the last episode was weird. :/ I may have to watch it again to figure out what the heck was going on.

More rambling about characterization.

I just watched the first four episodes of Lie to Me, a new Fox show with Tim Roth. (For the record, I blame [livejournal.com profile] mind_the_tardis.) Anyway, it made me think about characters and characterization.

In which I mention Sherlock Holmes a lot. )

Wow, that went off-topic. Well, not really, it's what I wanted to talk about, but it became a more general thing than just about Lie to Me. As for that show, hm, well. Quite standard. Why is it that all those crime TV shows always feel so constructed--not only the plots and the cases the characters work on, but also the characters and the way they interact? It's like one of those interior architecture magazine rooms, where everything fits perfectly, but you know no-one would ever live like that. Ah well. The assistant they hired in the pilot is hot, that's a redeeming quality for the show, I guess.

Oh, and another "for the record" thing--I was talking about male lead characters. A whole different set of rules applies to female lead characters, which is sad in itself, but there you are.
