With sharp dialogue and a chaotic-but-compelling advancing storyline, ‘House of Lies’ remains a solid watch during its second season.
House of Lies Season 2 DVD Review
A perfect example of a a DVD worth marathoning and then sharing with your friends, ‘House of Lies’ maintained its’ edge from the first season but gave us plenty more for season two.
The cast is exceptional, with Don Cheadle leading the way. Kristen Bell is one of America’s National Treasures (and America’s Sweetheart) and her work is always high-quality (even when she’s playing a royal brat.) Then you have Ben Schwartz and Josh Lawson, you elevate the humor in every scene.
Aside from the regular cast, this season of ‘House of Lies’ had amazing guest stars. Matt Damon, as Matt Damon, was a genius interpretation of a Hollywood dude. Jenny Slate was also a highlight. (Don’t forget that ‘House of Lies’ season 3 has Eliza Coupe.)
Best episode? That’d be “Damonskids.org” for sure. You’ve got to see that magnificent episode of television.
