Watch The Lying Game Online
|Full Show Summary: The lying game is based on the yet unfinished book series of the same name by the prolific author Sara Shepard. The story could be described as a modern take on The prince and the pauper, with elements of mistery and teen drama. Emma and Sutton are two twin sisters separated at birth for unkown reasons, growing up in totally different environments - Emma has lived under the foster care system, while Sutton was adopted by a rich family and has lead a comfortable life. When the twins are reunited by chance, Sutton asks Emma to take her place for a few days while she looks for information about their mother in Los Angeles. Though Emma doesn’t know if she’ll be able to foool everyone, she finally accepts and jumps into her sister’s shoes. But when Sutton goes missing, Emma discovers that her sister has hidden many things from her. She’ll start an investigation to know the whole truth, but there’s people in her new environment who will do anything to prevent it. The lying game works reasonably well as a mix of genres. It’s true that parts of the story stretch credibility (like how no one realizes for a long time that Emma is not Sutton), but the show doesn’t go for hard realism, and must be taken with a grain of salt. The young lead, Alexandra Chando, does a good job, and young viewers will find it easy to sympathize with her predicament. Though it would be interesting to see her play both sisters, Sutton has been totally missing so far, but maybe in the future we’ll get to see Ms. Chando playing her. Other members of the cast include Helen Slater (none other than Supergirl) and Adrian Pasdar, of Heroes fame, who this time plays the villain. The Lying Game is a well-made and entertaining show, and other than the story moving a bit slowly, it can’t be very heavily critiziced. If you enjoyed the previous adaptation of a Sara Shepard work, Pretty Little Liars, you’ll definitely enjoy this one too.|
