By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on October 10, 2012
Format: DVD
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.

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.

If you have never worked in Corporate America, nor have any interest in it, this show may seem preposterous to you. However, if you have worked in Corporate America, and had to suffer through outside Management Consultants reviewing your business, you will love this show. As an executive who has, on multiple occasions, been forced to teach the business to these people, almost all of whom are actually younger and less experienced than those in this show, I can tell you that this is really what it is like.... with a bit of exaggeration about the drugs and sex to liven it up, of course. Real consultants spend countless hours on planes and in senseless meetings and phone calls with their clients as well. Nevertheless, when Don Cheadle speaks directly to the camera, he is giving a true lecture on Management Consulting that MIT or HBS could use in class. Cheadle's performance is brilliant as is Dawn Olivieri's as his borderline personality disordered ex-wife. The other characters at the office are also solid. The home scenes for me seem a bit off, I am unimpressed with the son and father characters, they seem like an after thought-room for improvement in the second season, I hope. Nevertheless, I would recommend you pour a Martini or Manhattan, sit back and get ready to laugh out loud.

This show is well acted and the cast members are incredible.... However, I have to say that it's not for me. The dark turns the show takes are not really what I want in my series entertainment. Suffice it to say, my viewing tastes are not slanted towards these types of issues. In other words, when things get to dark and heavy, I just want to turn it off....

So, why did I give it 4 stars? Because my tastes may be different than anyone that is reading this review. And, if the series is well shot, acted and scripted, then it still deserves the stars whether I like it or not. If you like that kind of stuff, then go for it and enjoy it. It's not like it's ALL dark, There's humor as well and most of the jokes are pretty good. And, I've only seen Don Cheadle in one other show that I can remember, and that was "Boogie Nights." The difference between the 2 characters that Don played is SO striking that you will immediately get a a sense of the range and execution of those 2 very different characters.

So, watch it and enjoy.

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.
