Editorial Reviews

HOUSE OF LIES is a scathing, Corporate America-skewering comedy about a self-loathing management consultant (Academy Awardr nominee Don Cheadle) from a top tier firm who is never above using any means (or anyone) necessary to get his way with and for his clients.

Without a doubt, Showtime's "House of Lies" was one of my most eagerly awaited programs of 2012. Headlined by Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell, the previews for this blistering sitcom looked bawdy, over-the-top, and merciless. There's nothing that I enjoy more than brutal satire, dark humor, and pushing the boundaries of traditional television. So my expectations were through the roof. And for the most part, I was completely satisfied (if not instantly blown away) with the end result. By being on Showtime, "House of Lies" definitely makes the most of its adult situations with outrageous language, unrepentant viciousness, and frank sexual discussions and partnerships. In many ways, though, I felt "House of Lies" trying too hard to be provocative. Everything is done at such extremes, the program rarely settles enough to get you to actually care about its protagonists. They are a questionable bunch, to be sure, but I'd have appreciated a few more grounded moments amidst the mayhem to make the show feel a bit more well rounded. Don't get me wrong. I still thoroughly enjoyed this decidedly brutal comedy, it just lacked the fine tuning necessary to make it one of TV's best.

At its most successful, "House of Lies" skewers business culture, office politics, and the cutthroat nature of getting ahead at any cost. Cheadle plays a ruthless business consultant whose team includes Bell, Ben Schwartz, and Josh Lawson. This quartet is the backbone of the show and each episode showcases them finessing the art of the deal using unscrupulous tactics. The role of the business consultant can be varied, but essentially the team is looking to be hired to provide the outside expertise on any number of topics involving efficiency.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply The Best November 21, 2012
Format:DVD
If you have a liking for brutally ruthless, highly intelligent, adult humor (including language and sex) in a high stakes, cut throat, big business environment, go no further. My wife and I are absolutely addicted.

Is This Why 75% of a Recent Yale MBA Class Applied to McKinsey & Company?

Then there is the follow up work that keeps on paying like an insurance residual! Welcome to the world of Management Consultants.

Marty (Don Cheadle), Jeannie (Kristen Bell) et al work for the #2 rated firm. Every week the team led by Marty travel to a different city to convince a business that they are the solution to whatever ails them. The goal is to sign the deal with a teaser/idea and then ink a long term contract for "after work".

What I really liked:

1.) Having seen management consultant firms in action, I always questioned the value of their ideas, when in most cases they had at best a basic understanding of what "my" business entailed? I have had some fun in this respect in the past

2.) The MA rating allows for no punches to be pulled. Constant sex, foul language and adult situations abound!

3.) Ever since Veronica Mars was prematurely cancelled, I had it on my short list to see Kristen Bell in another program where I could "see" Kristen Bell

4.) The first episode draws you in and is a particular favorite of mine as it culminates by outlining how a major lender can garner positive press by offering a modification program, which is essentially a "shell game"

Some of the story lines are uneven. Marty has a pill popping ex-wife (that happens to work for the #1 consulting firm) and a son that may be sexually ambiguous. Jeannie is engaged to a "Richie Rich", though is seemingly unsatisfied. Oh, there is also a potential merger that Marty opposes.

All in, this is a very good show with an excellent cast.

I really like this show, but I should warn you that it is part comedy and part tragedy. No matter how well things start to go, every episode seems to end with a metaphorical kick... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars It's for me but not for everybody!
I like the show. It is definitely entertaining. The acting is really good. You can tell that Don Cheadle has a great time being Marty Kahn. The show is not for the feint at heart. Read more
