House of Lies - 1x01 Gods of Dangerous Financial Instruments

Gods of Dangerous Financial Instruments

Marty and The Pod travel to New York to consult for MetroCapital, a bank looking for a plan to unscrupulously justify their year-end bonuses as the financial world around them burns, but Marty makes an enemy of Greg Norbert, MetroCapital's number two executive. Back at home, Marty receives unwanted parenting advice from his live-in father Jeremiah when his son Roscoe decides to audition for the female lead in a school play.

Mixed feelings. Generally fun to watch but the breaking of the 4th wall was annoying as hell! Possible deal breaker..

Enjoyed it as well :)
Kind of change us from the usual law/med drama

Nice pilot. I enjoyed it.

A bit cheesy sometimes, but quite alright.

ColeFrost (Dec 18, 2011)

Sexed up, funny, and just enough drama to keep it moving. Definitely fits into that Showtime lineup with Shameless and Californication.

I could do without Don Cheadle having to talk to the camera all the time, but other than that, it was pretty decent.

If you like Californication, this has roughly the same type of humor. The shows aren't that similar storywise, but they still feel like they are written by the same person.
