bahaya love bite

 


 

Kenapa lovebite berbahaya?

Menurut Daily Mail, seorang wanita berusia 44 tahun telah lumpuh selepas terkena serangan sakit jantung akibat daripada lovebite yang di lakukan oleh kekasihnya. Wanita itu (nama tidak dinyatakan) dimasukkan ke sebuah hospital di Auckland apabila mendapati dia tidak mampu menggerakkan tangan kirinya selepas kejadian itu.

Pada mulanya, para doktor mengesyaki wanita itu telah terkena serangan sakit jantung. Walaupun mereka tidak mengetahui punca sebenar penyakit wanita itu pada awalnya. Mereka kemudiannya, memeriksa wanita itu dan menjumpai kesan lovebite dibadannya. Dan dari kesan lovebite tu, mereka dapat tahu apa punca serangan sakit jantung tersebut.

Sebenarnya lovebite yang terhasil tu, menyebabkan pembuluh darah rosak dan mengakibatkan pembentukan darah beku. Darah yang telah beku tadi mengalir ke jantung dan boleh menyebabkan strok!

So, hati hati lah semasa bersama pasangan masing masing. Jangan sampai lupa diri, nanti ada yang merana baik lelaki atau perempuan. Jangan disebabkan expressi cinta, ada yang maut. :)

Simoncelli, 24, fell from his bike at turn 11 and skidded into the path of Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi, losing his helmet in the ensuing collision.
The race was immediately red flagged as Simoncelli lay motionless on the track and then cancelled altogether once the extent of the Honda rider’s injuries became clear.
After being transported to the circuit’s medical centre by ambulance Simoncelli was pronounced dead due to “a very serious trauma to the head, to the neck and the chest”.
“Everybody involved in MotoGP extends its deepest condolences to Marco’s family, friends and team at this tragic loss,” read a statement on the official MotoGP website.
BBC MotoGP presenter Matt Roberts reported that when the track medics got to him, Simoncelli was in cardiac arrest. “They tried to resuscitate him in the ambulance and the medical centre,” Roberts said. “Both riders collided with him and the impact corresponded to him losing his helmet. The saddest thing is that Valentino [Rossi] and Marco were very close friends.
“Colin [Edwards] has a dislocated shoulder and is in a lot of pain. He and Valentino are absolutely devastated.”
Simoncelli’s death came exactly a week after Britain’s IndyCar champion Dan Wheldon was killed in a 15-car pile-up at the season-ending Las Vegas 300.
And as with the aftermath of that crash, tributes immediately poured in from around the world; from Simoncelli’s fellow riders in Malaysia to Italian football giants Inter and AC Milan whose players wore black armbands yesterday.
“AC Milan offers a hug to the family of Marco, a huge rossoneri fan, and we want to offer the most sincere and heartfelt condolences,” the club said on its website.
Simoncelli, who won the 250cc world championship in 2008, clinching the crown in Sepang, stepped up to MotoGP in 2010. His death was the first fatality in MotoGP since Japan’s Daijiro Katoh died from his injuries sustained at the 2003 Japanese Grand Prix, although Shoya Tomizawa died in a similar crash to Simoncelli in a Moto2 race in San Marino last year.
It takes the number of recorded deaths in MotoGP to 47 since it was founded in 1949.
Unlike the aftermath to Wheldon’s crash the previous weekend, however, Simoncelli’s accident was largely treated by the motorsport community as just that rather than a tragedy that could have been avoided had race conditions been different.
MotoGP race director Paul Butler pledged to investigate the incident but warned that “you can never guarantee a 100 per cent safe race”.
“We had our standard operating procedure ... this is one-of-a-kind freak incident where the helmet came off and I am sure [motorcycling body] FIM and MotoGP will be looking into this,” he said.
“It is a sad back-to-back weekend for motorsports. We try our best to avoid incidents and prepare for the worst. You see, 99 per cent of the time, riders falling and walking away. Only one per cent do not.
“You can never guarantee a 100 per cent safe race. You expose yourself to danger when you race. As professionals, they know MotoGP is dangerous. Believe it or not, that is what they live for. Our condolences to Marco. He will be missed dearly.”
Hundreds of mourners, meanwhile, gathered for the funeral of Buckinghamshire-born Wheldon at his adopted home of St Petersburg, Florida, on Saturday. Another memorial service was held on Sunday in downtown Indianapolis, the scene of Wheldon’s greatest triumphs.

NCIS

NCIS, formerly known as NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service, is an American police procedural drama television series revolving around a fictional team of special agents from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which conducts criminal investigations involving the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.
The concept and characters were initially introduced in a two-part episode of the CBS series JAG (JAG episodes 8.20 and 8.21). The show, a spin-off from JAG, premiered on September 23, 2003 on CBS and, to date, has aired eight full seasons and has gone into syndicated reruns on USA Network, Cloo (formerly Sleuth) and Ion Television. Donald Bellisario, who created JAG as well as the well-known series Airwolf, Magnum, P.I. and Quantum Leap, is co-creator and executive producer of NCIS.
NCIS was originally referred to as Navy NCIS during Season 1; however, "Navy" was later dropped from the title as it was redundant. NCIS was joined in its seventh season by a spin-off series, NCIS: Los Angeles, starring Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J.
On February 3, 2011, NCIS was renewed by CBS for a ninth season.[1][2] That same year, NCIS was voted as America’s favorite television show.[3]

[edit]Premise

NCIS follows a fictional team of Naval Criminal Investigative Service Major Case Response Team (MCRT)[4] special agents headquartered at the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. It is described by the actors and producers (on special features on DVD releases in the United States) as being distinguished by its comic elements, ensemble acting and character-driven plots.
NCIS is the primary law enforcement and counter-intelligence arm of the United States Department of the Navy, which includes the United States Marine Corps. NCIS investigates all major criminal offenses (felonies)—crimes punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice by confinement of more than one year—within the Department of the Navy. The MCRT is frequently assigned to high profile cases such as the death of the U.S. president's military aide, a bomb situation on a U.S. Navy warship, the death of a celebrity on a reality show set on a USMC base, terrorist threats, and kidnappings.
The MCRT is led by Supervisory Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon). Gibbs’s team is composed of Special Agent and Senior Field Agent Anthony "Tony" DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), Special Agent Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) and Special Agent (formerly Mossad liaison officer) Ziva David (Cote de Pablo), who replaced Caitlin "Kate" Todd (Sasha Alexander) when she was shot and killed by rogue Mossad agent Ari Haswari (Rudolf Martin) at the end of season two. The team is assisted in their investigations by Chief Medical Examiner Donald "Ducky" Mallard (David McCallum), his assistant Jimmy Palmer (Brian Dietzen), who replaced Gerald Jackson (Pancho Demmings), and Forensic Specialist Abigail "Abby" Sciuto (Pauley Perrette).
It has been revealed through flashbacks that the 'original' head of the MCRT was Special Agent Mike Franks, who led the unit when it was part of the Naval Investigative Service (NIS), the predecessor agency of the NCIS. He recruited Gibbs shortly after Gibbs' retirement from the Marine Corps, eventually retiring himself some years later. After Franks' departure, Gibbs recruited DiNozzo from the Baltimore Police Department's Homicide Section. The two were briefly joined by Vivian Blackadder, whom Gibbs recruited from the FBI. In the second part of the NCIS pilot, Blackadder allowed her emotions to nearly derail an anti-terror operation in Spain. Gibbs is noticeably disappointed; Blackadder is not present in the series' first regular episode, replaced by Caitlin Todd, a Secret Service agent who joins Gibbs' team after resigning from the Secret Service. McGee first appears as a Field Agent assigned to the Norfolk Field Office. He uses his computer skills to aid the MCRT in subsequent investigations through the rest of the first season, until he is officially promoted with his own desk at the Navy Yard in the beginning of the second season.
NCIS is currently led by Director Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll). The first director seen in the series, Thomas Morrow (Alan Dale), left after being promoted to Deputy Director of the Department of Homeland Security. Jenny Shepard (Lauren Holly) was appointed director after Morrow in the first episode of season three. After Shepard was killed in a shootout at the end of the fifth season Vance, who was Assistant Director of NCIS before her death, was seen as Acting Director after her death and was promoted to take her place.

Leroy Jethro Gibbs, portrayed by Mark Harmon (Seasons 1–present), is a Special Agent in charge of the Major Case Response Team. He was a Gunnery Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps until 1991 when his first wife Shannon and daughter Kelly were killed by a Mexican drug dealer, after Shannon had witnessed a murder by the drug dealer.[5] After Gibbs had taken revenge on the drug dealer who killed his wife and daughter by shooting him, Gibbs joined NIS, later renamed NCIS, with Special Agent Mike Franks.[6] He has been married four times but is currently single, which is often referred to on the show. He also has a difficult relationship with his father.
Anthony "Tony" DiNozzo, portrayed by Michael Weatherly (Seasons 1–present), is a Special Agent and Senior Field Agent of the Major Case Response Team and former Peoria, Philadelphia, and Baltimore police officer before joining NCIS in 2001.[7] Gibbs considers DiNozzo to be a younger version of himself, using his "gut" to solve cases (e.g., in the episode "Collateral Damage").[8] Considered a notorious womanizer, his behavior is often quite sexist even on the job, which irritates the females he works with.
Ziva David, portrayed by Cote de Pablo (Recurring season 3, main cast seasons 3–present), is possibly the most dangerous member of the team. She is a Special Agent of the Major Case Response Team since season seven. For her first four years in the show, she was a part of the NCIS team as a Mossad Liaison Officer. She replaced Special Agent Kate Todd, who was shot and killed by Ziva's half-brother in the Season Two finale, "Twilight". In Season 7 opening episode, "Truth or Consequences", she was rescued from North Africa by Gibbs, DiNozzo and McGee where she had been held prisoner by terrorists for several months after being captured on a mission she had been working on for Mossad. She eventually returned to the US and resigned from Mossad, becoming a probationary NCIS agent and also an American citizen.
Abigail "Abby" Sciuto, portrayed by Pauley Perrette (Seasons 1–present), is a forensics specialist assigned to the NCIS Major Case Response Team. She has an affinity for Gothic fashion and is addicted to the fictional brand "Caf-Pow", a caffeinated beverage. Abby's character has gained enormous popularity nationally and internationally.

He has a degree in computer forensics from MIT and a degree in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins, and, along with Abby Sciuto, acts as the team's technology specialist. McGee was originally assigned to the Norfolk Naval Base but became a permanent team member at the end of the Season 2 opening episode, "See No Evil". Often called "Probie" by DiNozzo, despite no longer being a probationary. Under a pseudonym, the author of a best-selling book using characters based on members of the team, much to their irritation. Particularly close to Abby.

Jenny Shepard, portrayed by Lauren Holly (Recurring season 3, main cast seasons 3–5), was the second director of NCIS; she formerly worked under Gibbs in Europe and was his lover at the time. She was killed in "Judgment Day, Part 1" after a former NCIS target, Natasha, hired assassins to kill her. Shepard managed to kill all of the assassins with the help of Mike Franks but died from her wounds.
Caitlin "Kate" Todd, portrayed by Sasha Alexander (Main cast seasons 1–2, guest starred season 3 episodes 1 & 2), worked as a Secret Service Agent until the beginning of Season 1 and was tasked with the presidential protection detail. She almost failed at her job, only being bailed out by NCIS, so she resigned from the Secret Service and was offered a job at NCIS by Gibbs who became something of a mentor to her. Her two-year career came to a tragic and abrupt end when at the end of the Season 2 finale "Twilight", she died after being shot in the head by double agent Ari Haswari (Ziva David's late brother). Her death hit the NCIS team hard, with Gibbs leaving flowers on the roof where she was shot and, following her death, not letting anybody touch her desk or locker at NCIS until she was replaced by Ziva David (Ari Haswari's half-sister).

Gibbs regards him as very dangerous and does not trust him. While trying to clean up the agency's mess involving the "Port-to-Port Killer ", Lt.

Because she would have been tried for two murders, she chose to "die a hero".

[edit]Production



The filming crew in 2009.
[edit]Name
Prior to the launch of the first season, advertisements on CBS identified the show as "Naval CIS". By the time of the launch of the first episode, NCIS was airing under the name Navy NCIS, the name it held for the entire first season. Since the "N" in NCIS stands for "Naval", the name Navy NCIS was technically redundant. The decision to use this name was reportedly made by CBS, over the objections of Bellisario, in order to:
Attract new viewers (particularly those of JAG), who might not know the NCIS abbreviation.
Disambiguate between NCIS and the similarly themed and similarly spelled CBS series CSI and its spinoffs. (The original title, for instance, was often misquoted and parodied as "Navy CSI", something the show itself referenced in the first episode).[9]
After its successful first season, the name of the series was shortened to NCIS.
[edit]Filming location
NCIS is set in the Washington, D.C., area but is filmed in Santa Clarita, California.[10] The sound stages are in Santa Clarita. The series is shot throughout southern California.
[edit]Crew changes
It was reported in May 2007 that Donald Bellisario would be stepping down from the show.[11] Due to a disagreement with series star Mark Harmon, Bellisario's duties as show runner/head writer were to be tasked to long-time show collaborators, including co-executive producer Chas. Floyd Johnson and Shane Brennan, with Bellisario retaining his title as executive producer.[12]

Also, many of the characters working at the Office of Special Projects in NCIS: Los Angeles are introduced near the end of Season 6 of NCIS. In the Season 7 finale of NCIS, Vance mentions he has spent a lot of time getting the new Los Angeles branch up and running the past year, and tells Gibbs that Hetty (director of the Los Angeles branch) took him on a tour of Warner Bros. Studios.

Criminal Minds

Criminal Minds is an American police procedural drama that premiered September 22, 2005, on CBS. The series follows a team of profilers from the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) based in Quantico, Virginia. The BAU is part of the FBI National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime.[1] Criminal Minds differs from many procedural dramas by focusing on the criminal rather than the crime itself. The show is produced by The Mark Gordon Company in association with CBS Television Studios and ABC Studios.
On May 18, 2011, CBS renewed the series for a seventh season which premiered on September 21, 2011.[2]
CBS announced in October 2009 that Legacy Interactive will develop a video game based on the show. The game will require players to examine crime scenes for clues to help solve murder mysteries. The game is scheduled to come out in late 2011.[3][dated info]

[edit]Background

Initially, the series centered on Jason Gideon (Mandy Patinkin), Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson), and the rest of the Behavioral Analysis Unit, hereafter referred to as the BAU team. For the first season, that team is composed of Elle Greenaway (Lola Glaudini), Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore), Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), Jennifer "JJ" Jareau, (AJ Cook), and Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness). When the series premiered, Vangsness was not in the regular cast, appearing instead as a guest star.


A scene from the filming of season 6 of Criminal Minds.
During the second season, Greenaway left after the sixth episode and is replaced in the ninth episode of that season by Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster). At the start of the third season, Gideon departs after the second episode and is replaced several episodes later by David Rossi (Joe Mantegna). During the sixth season, JJ leaves after the second episode. A new character Ashley Seaver (Rachel Nichols) is introduced in Season 6. Also, later on in the sixth season, Prentiss leaves the show. AJ Cook returned to the show to participate in Brewster's final episode, billed as a "special guest star".
For the seventh season, it was announced that Cook signed a two year contract to return as a series regular at the end of the sixth season and for the beginning of the seventh season and it was also announced that Brewster would actually be returning as Prentiss as a series regular for season seven.[4][5] Nichols' contract was not extended for season seven, meaning she departed the cast. Moore's and Gibson's contracts were both renewed and their salaries were both raised.

[edit]Main
Aaron Hotchner, portrayed by Thomas Gibson (Season 1−present), is the unit chief of the BAU team. Hotchner is a former prosecutor and was originally assigned to the FBI Field Office in Seattle. He is one of the most experienced agents in the BAU. He struggles to balance the demands of his job with his family life, but his wife Haley divorces him in the third season of the show. Haley is later killed by a fugitive serial killer known as "The Reaper" in the fifth season. He also has a son named Jack, and a brother who appeared one time on the first season of the show. After Haley was murdered, he received sole custody of Jack. Haley's sister helps him with the child's care.
David Rossi, portrayed by Joe Mantegna (Season 3−present), is a Senior Supervisory Special Agent and is a highly experienced profiler who once worked the BAU in its origins, then took early retirement to write books and go on lecture tours about criminal analysis, until volunteering to return shortly after SSA Jason Gideon's departure. He has been married three times.
Derek Morgan, portrayed by Shemar Moore (Season 1−present), is a Supervisory Special Agent and is a confident, assertive, and often hot-tempered character. Raised by a single mother along with two sisters, Derek was a troubled Chicago youth headed for juvenile delinquency. He was rescued and mentored by a man who is later arrested for child molestation; Morgan had been one of his victims. After developing an interest in football, he attended Northwestern University on a scholarship. After this, he joined the Chicago Police Department's bomb squad, then moved to the BAU. He has a special relationship with technical analyst Penelope Garcia, and the two have a unique shorthand and banter. In Season seven "It Takes a Village" Morgan shows complete hatred towards Ian Doyle for killing Prentiss, however when Prentiss returns, he has mixed feelings.
Emily Prentiss, portrayed by Paget Brewster (Season 2−present), is a Supervisory Special Agent. She is the daughter of Ambassador Elizabeth Prentiss. After SSA Elle Greenaway leaves the BAU, Prentiss shows up with papers assigning her to the BAU. Emily is also fluent in some languages, such as Arabic and Spanish, and has a working knowledge in Italian, but it is revealed that Emily has lost comprehension of her other known language, Russian. She is apparently killed while being held hostage by Ian Doyle in the season six episode entitled "Lauren," but in the last scene of the episode it is suggested that she survived her encounter with Doyle. J.J. meets Prentiss at a cafe in Paris where she provides her with three passports and bank accounts to start a new life in hiding from Doyle. On May 28, 2011, it was announced that Brewster would be returning as Prentiss as a series regular for the next season. In "It Takes a Village" she returns, and it is shown that she loves children.
Dr. Spencer Reid, portrayed by Matthew Gray Gubler (Season 1−present), is a Supervisory Special Agent. He is the youngest BAU member. He is a genius who graduated from a Las Vegas public high school at age 12, and holds PhDs in Mathematics, Chemistry, and Engineering, as well as BAs in Psychology and Sociology, and, as of the fourth season, is working on a BA in Philosophy. It has been revealed that he has an IQ of 187, and has an eidetic memory. Reid joined the FBI in 2004. Most of the members on the team are intimidated by his profound knowledge. He is habitually introduced as "Dr. Reid", in contrast to the other agents' introductions as "Supervisory Special Agent". The purpose of this, as explained by Hotchner in the pilot episode, is to create a respectable first impression of Reid, deflecting judgments about his age. His mother suffers from schizophrenia, and is currently committed to a mental institution.
Jennifer "JJ" Jareau, portrayed by AJ Cook (Season 1−5; Season 6, 4 episodes; Season 7−present), is a Supervisory Special Agent. Seasons 1-5 she acted as the Media Liaison to local police agencies. She is dating William LaMontagne, a New Orleans police officer and the two have a son together, Henry. At the beginning of the sixth season, Jareau was forced to take a promotion to the Pentagon causing her departure from the team, although Unit Chief Hotchner expressed his hope that she will return to the BAU in the future. JJ returned in the episode titled "Lauren" to help the team find Agent Prentiss. She returned once again in the season finale for the sixth season, before returning as a full-time cast member once again in season seven when Cook signed a two-year deal to return as a series regular. She is now a full-time profiler.
Penelope Garcia, portrayed by Kirsten Vangsness (Recurring season 1; Seasons 2−present), is the team's technical analyst. She joined the Bureau after bringing attention upon herself by illegally accessing some of their equipment; she was offered a job in lieu of a jail sentence. She usually supports the team from her computer lab at Quantico, but occasionally joins them on location when her skills can be used in the field. She enjoys a flirtatious relationship with SSA Morgan, often engaging in comical banter of a sexually suggestive nature, when he calls in for information. She was once shot and almost killed by an unsub who lured her on a date.
Elle Greenaway, portrayed by Lola Glaudini (Season 1; Season 2, episodes 1−6), was a Supervisory Special Agent. Greenaway was formerly assigned to the FBI Field Office in Seattle, Washington, and assigned to the BAU as an expert in sexual offense crimes. Greenaway suffers extreme emotional trauma after being shot by an unidentified subject in the season one cliffhanger. In the opening episode of season two she survives and returns to duty, sooner than SSA Jason Gideon and Hotchner would like to see. Several episodes later, while alone on stakeout of a suspected serial rapist unsub, she shoots the man in cold blood. The local police deem it self-defense, but Gideon and Hotchner question her ability as a profiler after this. She resigns, turning her badge and her gun in to Hotchner, with the declaration that this is "not an admission of guilt."
Jason Gideon, portrayed by Mandy Patinkin (Season 1−2; season 3, episodes 1−2), was a Senior Supervisory Special Agent and is widely known as the BAU's best profiler. After a series of emotionally taxing cases, and the murder of his friend Sarah in his own house by a fugitive serial killer, he begins to feel burned out. The last straw occurs when Hotchner is suspended for two weeks by the team's boss — an action for which Gideon feels responsible. He retreats to his cabin and leaves a letter for Reid, who he knows will be the one to come looking for him. When Reid arrives at the cabin, it is empty except for the letter and Gideon's badge and firearm. Gideon is last seen remarking to a Nevada diner waitress that he does not know where he is going or how he will know when he gets there, leaving the diner and driving off.
Ashley Seaver, portrayed by Rachel Nichols (Season 6), was an FBI Cadet training at the FBI Academy in Quantico. She shadowed the BAU to help with the investigation into murders in a gated community. She was chosen due to her unique background; her father was a horrific serial killer who murdered dozens of women before being caught by the BAU, incidentally. At first, Hotchner was going to make her a special, one-time consultant to the BAU, but Rossi allowed her to finish her remedial training with the team, under the supervision of SSA Prentiss. In "... With Friends Like These," she graduated from the Academy and had been added to the team as a "probationary agent." Nichols's contract was not included for season seven, and her character departed the show off-screen. In the season seven premiere it was revealed that Seaver was transferred to another unit.
[edit]Recurring
Haley Hotchner, portrayed by Meredith Monroe (recurring seasons 1–5), was Agent Hotchner's wife and the mother of his only son Jack, born in late 2005. The couple's marriage is troubled, due to Haley's perception of Hotch being more devoted to his job and BAU team than to his family. This subplot progresses, and by the end of the second episode of season 3, Haley moves out, taking Jack with her. Later in the season, Haley serves Hotch with divorce papers, which he decides to sign without contest in order to save his relationship with his son. Haley is occasionally referred to but not seen again until the first episode of season 5 when The Reaper stabs Hotch and steals Haley's address. Hotch has them put into protective custody. Hotch becomes obsessed with bringing The Reaper to justice so he can see his son and his ex-wife again. In episode 9 of season 5, The Reaper kills the US Marshal assigned to protect Haley, then lures her to Hotch's home, telling her that he is the replacement and that Hotch is dead. Meeting her alone at the house, he forces her at gunpoint to phone Hotch so he can hear his ex-wife and son being killed. Hotch gives Jack a coded message to hide and says a tearful goodbye to Haley before The Reaper shoots her. Hotch reaches the house ahead of the rest of his team and engages in a life-or-death fist fight with The Reaper. He beats him to death, then finds his son alive in his hiding place.
Jordan Todd, portrayed by Meta Golding (Season 4), was Jareau's handpicked replacement to serve as the BAU's Media Director during Jareau's maternity leave, from late 2008 through early 2009. Todd had formerly served in the FBI Counterterrorism Division, but only follows Jareau for one day of shadowing before Jareau goes into labor. Todd seemed to get along well with most of the team, even flirting platonically with Derek Morgan. She was especially close with David Rossi, who is seen to counsel her while they are on cases. However, Todd clashed several times with Unit Chief Aaron Hotchner.
Dr. Diana Reid, portrayed by Jane Lynch (Seasons 1–present), is the mother of BAU team member Dr. Spencer Reid. Like her son, she has a high IQ and was once a university professor of literature, but suffers from schizophrenia and is hospitalized in a Las Vegas sanitarium, where Spencer committed her when he was eighteen. Her husband William left prior to her diagnosis, because of his inability to cope with her illness and he couldn't deal with protecting her after she witnessed a murder. She is functional when on her medication, but frequently lapses into regression to her university career. Diana spent much time reading aloud to Spencer while he was growing up, and he continues to write her a letter every day. She is proud of her son, but disapproves of the FBI as it is a government run organization and she refers to his colleagues as "fascists".
Erin Strauss, portrayed by Jayne Atkinson (Seasons 2–present), is is the BAU Unit Chief's direct superior. Her FBI experience lies in administration, and she has never been in the field and Strauss proves to be only concerned with herself and appearances within the Bureau; going as far as to force JJ to accept a promotion to the Pentagon.
William LaMontagne, Jr, portrayed by Josh Stewart (Seasons 2–present), is JJ's boyfriend and father of JJ's son, Henry. As of early season 4, Will had moved to Virginia, and is apparently now serving as stay-at-home dad to their son, Henry. JJ has not, as yet, canonically accepted the marriage proposal, but they did exchange rings with insets of Henry's birthstone, citrine. He is seen briefly in the 100th episode getting medicine for Henry with JJ, as well as "The Slave of Duty," accompanying JJ and the team at Haley's funeral.
Kevin Lynch, portrayed by Nicholas Brendon (Seasons 3–present), Kevin first appeared in 3x09 ("Penelope") in which he was required to search Garcia's computer to learn who shot her. Kevin sent the team live video alerting that the unsub was in the BAU headquarters. He was intensely impressed by Penelope's computer skills, and the feeling was mutual. At the end of the episode Garcia was introduced to Kevin, and the two have been romantically involved ever since.

[edit]Characters and casting

[edit]Main
Tim Roth as Dr. Cal Lightman, a psychologist with an expertise in body language and predominantly microexpressions and founder of The Lightman Group, a private company that operates as an independent contractor to assist investigations of local and federal law enforcement through applied psychology.[10] Though often confronted by people's skepticism, Lightman uses any psychological technique he deems necessary to reach the truth, however elaborate or confronting. He is divorced, and has shared custody of his teenage daughter. He cares deeply about Gillian Foster, and there is a chemistry between them that has yet to develop into anything more, although in the third season finale he confesses (to his daughter) that he loves her. His mother committed suicide while he was still young, an event that led him to discovering and researching microexpressions. There is evidence he was involved with British Intelligence.[11] Lightman also mentioned interrogating IRA members, going as far as admitting he was fooled by a suspect's facial expressions that caused the murder of three people in a pub shortly after the interrogation. He has also admitted to being an MI6 intelligence agent during the Yugoslavia Wars in 1994 in an attempt to gain the trust of an intelligence agent that he was interrogating. Lightman is a West Ham United supporter as he mentions himself in Season 2. He can also be seen wearing a Claret and Blue scarf in one of the later episodes of Season 2. The character is based on Dr. Paul Ekman, a psychologist and expert on body language and facial expressions at University of California, San Francisco.[12]
Kelli Williams as Dr. Gillian Foster, Dr. Lightman's colleague and co-worker in The Lightman Group.[13] Her husband's lack of candor often challenges her open pact with Lightman: not to let their professional skill interfere with coworkers' personal lives. So, when Cal believes her husband, Alec, is cheating on her, he simply ignores what he is seeing, much to Torres's dismay. It is later revealed that he was not, in fact, cheating on her, but was trying to overcome his drug addiction. Gillian had adopted a baby (Sophie) who was eventually returned to the birth mother. This character is based on Dr. Maureen O’Sullivan, emeritus professor of psychology at the University of San Francisco.
Brendan Hines as Eli Loker, initially an employee of The Lightman Group. Loker is academically educated and acquired his skills in "reading" people through practice. During season 1, he also adheres to Radical Honesty, and thus rarely lies, even if that makes him appear rude or undiplomatic.[14] Lightman demoted him to an unpaid intern after, despite Foster's warnings, he divulged sensitive information to the SEC while working on a case. However, he is later promoted to vice president, which puts a rift in any developing relationship between him and Torres (the two had slept together once).
Monica Raymund as Ria Torres, an employee of The Lightman Group, and a protegé of Dr. Lightman's, who was recognized as a "natural" while she was still working as a TSA agent.[15] Torres was abused as a child,[16] a common pattern among naturals. Though talented and loyal, she lacks academic training and sometimes lets her emotions cloud her judgment. She has a half sister who is in juvenile prison.


Hayley McFarland, who plays the role of Emily Lightman
Hayley McFarland as Emily Lightman, Cal Lightman's teenage daughter. She is under shared custody between her parents, and though she does not appreciate her father's ability to "read" her, she does not deny its merit for social screening. She has had a few boyfriends over the series that her father frequently scrutinizes. Though she sometimes gets into trouble and has fake IDs and much to Lightman's chagrin has been sexually active with at least one or more of her past boyfriends, she is generally very well-behaved and has a loving relationship with her father. She notices the dynamic between Foster and Lightman. (Recurring Season 1, Regular Season 2–3)
Mekhi Phifer as Ben Reynolds, an FBI agent who is assigned to and assists the Lightman Group in their investigations, offering armed assistance and practical insights. Reynolds doesn't always agree with Lightman's ways, but stands behind them the majority of the time. (Recurring Season 1, Regular Season 2)
[edit]Recurring
Jennifer Beals as Zoe Landau, Cal Lightman's ex-wife and Emily's mother. She is an Assistant Attorney General and though currently engaged to another man, she also engaged in a tryst with Lightman, after he helped her in a case. (Seasons 1 & 2)
Monique Gabriela Curnen as Detective Wallowski. She is a police officer who assists Lightman. (Seasons 2 & 3)
Tim Guinee as Alec Foster, Gillian Foster's ex-husband. He works at the United States Department of State and is a recovering cocaine addict where throughout the series it was heavily hinted that he was having an extramarital affair until it revealed the woman was his CA sponsor. He and Gillian divorced. (Season 1)
Sean Patrick Thomas as Special Agent Karl Dupree. Dupree initially assisted the Lightman group on a case involving a controversial South Korean ambassador, who is presumed to be an assassination target at his son's state wedding. Torres and Dupree are romantically involved later in season one. He also defends Torres against Loker when he divulged sensitive information to the SEC while working on a case. (Season 1)
Brandon Jones as Liam, Emily Lightman's boyfriend, a high school jock who is not intimidated by Cal Lightman. Emily breaks up with him because he does not believe in sex before marriage. (Season 3)
[edit]Plot

See also: List of Lie to Me episodes
Based on the real-life scientific discoveries of Paul Ekman, the series follows Lightman and his team of deception experts as they assist law enforcement and government agencies to expose the truth behind the lies.[17]
The season opens with Cal and Gillian hiring a new associate: TSA officer Ria Torres, who scored extraordinarily high on Cal's deception-detection diagnostic, and is in turn labeled a "natural" at deception detection. Her innate talent in the field clashes with Cal's academic approach, and he often shows off by rapidly analyzing her every facial expression. She counters by reading Lightman and, when he least expects it, peppers conversations with quotes from his books.
It was gradually revealed that Dr. Lightman was driven to study micro-expressions as a result of guilt over his mother's suicide. She claimed to have been fine in order to obtain a weekend pass from a psychiatric ward, when she was actually experiencing agony (which mostly parallels Paul Ekman's anecdote in his book "Telling Lies").
For a small number of the early episodes, Lightman would team up with Torres to work on a case, while Foster and Loker would team up on a separate case. Occasionally, their work would intertwine, or Foster and/or Lightman would provide assistance on each other's cases. As the first season progressed, the cases became more involved, and all four of the main characters would work together on one case for each episode.
In addition to detecting deception in subjects they interview, Lightman and his team also use various interviewing and interrogation tactics to elicit useful information. Rather than by force, they use careful lines of questioning, provocative statements, theatrics and healthy doses of deception on their own part. In the show's pilot episode, Lightman is speaking to a man who is refusing to speak at all, and is able to discern vital information by talking to him and gauging his reaction to each statement. This approach is also taken in several other episodes (e.g., "Do No Harm").
[edit]Principal crew

[edit]Reception

[edit]Critical reception
The show received mostly positive reviews from television critics. It gained a score of 64 on Metacritic from 24 reviews.[21] Entertainment Weekly's Ken Tucker awarded Lie to Me a B- rating and wrote "Lie to Me is derivative yet well crafted, predictable yet ever-so-slightly novel… it's no wonder that Fox thinks it's got itself a potential hit". However, he also commented "if this review were a face, Dr. Lightman would say it had a forced smile: hopeful, but dubious, about Lie's chances."[22] Tom Shales, writing for the Washington Post, said "Lie to Me seems an unusually meaty, thoughtful and thought-provoking crime drama – another police procedural, yes, but one with a dramatic and mesmerizing difference… easily one of the season's best new shows."[23]
[edit]Ratings
In the United States, the viewing figures declined as the series progressed. The Pilot was seen by 12.37 million, however by the final episode of the first season it was down to 8.46 million. The most viewed episode was the third episode, "A Perfect Score", which attracted 12.99 million. The second season premiered on September 28, 2009 to 7.73 million viewers.[24] The season two finale had 4.94 million viewers in the U.S. on September 13, 2010.[25] The third season, which had its premiere moved forward to October 4, 2010, was viewed by 5.87 million people in the U.S.[26] The series' official cancellation was announced by Fox on May 10, 2011.[27]
