Lie to Me isnt bad.  It is a little House like, except of course they solve crime, but showing the facial micro-expression types they supposedly work from alongside the pictures of famous celebrities and politicians is pretty cool.

Lie to Me is an Applied Linguistists' wet dream.  I studied Language, Interaction and Culture for 4 years, and this stuff was ground-breaking in the late-90's.  A lot of people didn't believe this was possible--quantifying facial expressions and nonverbal cues.  That they use it to solve crimes is a bit far-fetched, but it's entertaining.
