Swear­ing and sex doesn’t al­ways make a se­ries cut­ting edge, some­times it just makes it crass as is the case of House­ofLies, star­ring Don Chea­dle and Kris­ten Bell. The se­ries is set amongst a team of very ex­pen­sive man­age­ment con­sul­tants led by Marty (Chea­dle) who is pre­pared to go to any lengths to win over a client. Marty’s pieces to cam­era in which he ex­plains some of the man­age­ment jar­gon and the cor­po­rate tricks is a nice touch but there is a just too much em­pha­sis on his per­sonal life – a clue to which is the show’s first scene – in which we get to see him naked. At least from the back). But Houseof Lies just isn’t funny or shock­ing enough. ★★ Ex­tras: Man­age­men­tCon­sult­ing101, TheRain­maker, Dress­for­Suc­cess, Com­men­tary (Episodes 101, 102, 105, 111, 112), Hang­ing­with­DonC­hea­dle, Hang­ing with­KristinBell, WhoisMar­tyKaan? ★★★
