I’m not going to post individual posts and follow these. Just too much going on.

House of Lies
Well the people behind this show know how to grab your attention. The opening minute has a nekkid Don Cheadle face buried in some female’s derrière, which turns out to be his ex-wife and chief competition in the consulting business. House of Lies is break neck storytelling, with tongue firmly in cheek. Often in the lightening paced dialogue, everything freezes, except Don Cheadle who then breaks the fourth wall and talks to the audience to explain things. I like it. It works.
The various storylines including his business, family and love life are all engaging and quite witty and surprising. Qualities that mean a lot to me.

Right off, my wife and I enjoyed the 30 minute show. We now have something to look forward to on Sunday evenings. Highly recommend.

Californication
Wow, talk about coming late to the game. First time viewing, but it’s already in its fifth season. Similar to House of Lies, the cast of characters are unique and fun to watch. Apparently no subject is taboo here either. Following David Duchovney is a hoot. Instantly liked this show too. We may try to catch up a little Showtime On Demand is showing all of season 4.

Shameless
Love William H Macy and his drunk, busted ass, lowlife character is too far and between in this chaotic plot. There was nothing here really grabbing me to stay on. While sprinkled with laid back humor, the story lines just lacked interest. Mostly likely will not follow this. It's not bad, but not great either.
Believe in Yourself
Because the rest of us think you're an idiot.
