There are cool tv shows like Arrow, Community, Revolution, Games of Thrones etc. All cool, well made and great fantasy worlds and characters we enjoy watching. And then there is House of Lies, a show that connects so many pieces of our real lives, from pure satire to, dare i say it, deep social commentary.
Don Cheadle plays Marty Kaan, people have always said he was a fantastic actor, but I never really saw it until House of Lies. He is so good in this, it was a revelation. His character addresses the viewer to explain his situations and give running commentary on what is happening. It not only adds another layer they use it in dramatic way and in some scenes Marty Kaan actually pushes the camera away when he is too vulnerable or embarrassed. The shows are short and furious, but very well written and the cast it fantastic.
All I can say is, I’m very glad HBO put this show after Games of Thrones, it is a definite must see!
