    While I get a break after Shameless, now is the perfect time to start the thread for House of Lies, Season 2. Loved everything about the way this show works in Season 1, looking forward to more in Season 2. If you've ever had to deal with an efficiency "consultant" this show captures that feel so well that I found myself suffering through some of the episodes in season one thinking "been there, done that!"

    I'm not all that high on the Moonlighting vibe I'm getting with Marty and Jeannie. But there is a lot of BS to wade through on this show. :)

    I was dying at the scene in the bar while he tried to explain his open/closed relationship. And the bit about them not knowing who the client was and just throwing out BS for a while to hook him was hilarious; I have been in meetings that might as well have been exactly that.

    Renewed for Season 3. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/shameless-house-lies-californication-renewed-416385 This weeks ep cracked me up; the way he wore the masquerade to walk around the casino to the Douchekins. Next week... Matt Damon? BTW, anytime you have a promo where Matt Damon asks how much Oxy you can do before you die.. it's a heck of a setup

    I wonder if they'll, at some point, do an "Office" tie in. Hire "everybody" from the TV show for an episode...man that would be comedy gold. I don't care if they got Steve Carell for that or not. Heck, even some of the people from Office Space.

    The Matt Damon episode had a few laughs. The final bit with "Damon's Children" was overcooked but intended so.

    I thought the best moments were between Jennie and the kid.
    I did, however, like Matt telling him to walk over to the woman and get her to start making out with her friends and finding himself getting beat on

    Lisa Edelstein sex scene. That should be all I need to say. Loved the joke of the out of touch banker trying to make an impression with the garden, was dying at lines like "it's in the genes!" :) Kristen Bell's role here continues to bring the funny week after week. Her self assessment in the airplane killed me
