HOUSE OF LIES: THE FINAL SEASON REVIEWED
“House of Lies: The Final Season” finally ends after five years. It wasn’t a bad show, but it overstayed its time by about a year or two. The entire thrust of the short final season is for Marty and Jeannie to realize that they belong together. All the while, they have to save Marty’s business and keep everyone from early retirement. Cuba plays itself in some sort of lame neoliberal exotic locale wank to punch-up a rather padded out finale.
Still, everyone is warm and cordial. If you’ve been following the series for any length of time, you’ll enjoy the final stops for these characters. It’s just that there isn’t really anything here for casual viewers. But, by Year 5 of a niche premium cable show…how many casual viewers are still checking it out? Fans will enjoy, while everyone else can skip.

The Plot Thus Far
Charming, fast talking Marty Kaan and his crack team of management consultants know how to play the corporate game better than anyone, by using every dirty trick in the book to woo powerful CEOs and close huge deals. In the board rooms, barrooms and bedrooms of the power elite, corruption is business as usual and everyone’s out for themselves first. Nothing is sacred in this scathing, irreverent satire of corporate America today. Outrageous, subversive and wildly funny, House Of Lies stars Academy Award® nominee Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell.
