TOPIC: Liar...

Liar... 3 Weeks, 3 Days ago Karma: 49
Very good week after week - despite some slightly unbelievable elements - would a rapist really ask the cop for a drink? Would a victim really ask her rapist to lie to a father about his daughter? Would everybody be so keen to conceal underage sex and abortion? - it is terrific TV. It is an interesting premise - that everybody lies about something.

Its been swings and roundabouts ... prog 2 made it looks as if he really was guilty, then came the bit about her having done it before and all the attempts to stitch hime up, which made it swing entirely the other way.

This week, there was a smirk on his face everytime he appeared and the impression was definately "I've got away with it"

Yes I think that's why I've been enjoying it - everyone has been lying even the sister having an affair with her sister's ex - the cop! Cherry on the cake - the rapist doctor lies as a favour to his victim. And tries to pull the (rather dishy) cop! It's not realistic but why should it be? Very good TV.

I thought he was goading the policewoman because of her giving him the leaflet about consent.

We know he drugged the drink, but it could have been meant for himself. A viagra type thing perhaps?

Clever writing, directing and acting; allowing ordinary people to lie and (sometimes) get away with it. The sub plot regarding the sister lying about her affair, for example. And I'm sure her charming, trusting husband who "couldn't open" her E Mails through conscience, will turn out to have a dark secret behind the loving father facade!

It's all gone a bit Eastenders; they should have kept him sympathetic and her more loony until about half way through next week's finale; then told us everything. Would have been far cleverer.

Fully agree there.

Yes - annoying as it started so well and so cleverly; if it had continued more subtle it would have been REALLY great. The premise - that everybody lies a bit and that some abuse or rapes can be misunderstandings or confusion whilst others are deliberate and nasty (very few, I suspect, as nasty as this guy seems to be) - was great. In fact some of the sub plots - the sister and ex boyfriend (why so much distress when he's an EX?); the pregnant schoolgirl; could have been expanded and developed. The effects on fringe others (sister's kids; surgeon's son) should have grown. And then a stunning last half hour would have had jaws dropping. It may still come but I can't see how.

I can't see a twist happening now if itv did it have one then it will be a weak one.

Why do good dramas end crappy?
