What I’m Watching: House of Lies

House of Lies: Season 4, Episode 3 “Entropy is Contagious” (B+)

Well, this was a rocky episode in the best kind of way. The most explosive part of it unquestionably involved Doug. Sarah trying to tempt him into sex with his mint-condition action figures was among the less crazy things she’s done, but finding out about her nude stalking arrest record was deeply disconcerting. The fact that Clyde was trying to help Doug out by encouraging him not to send Sarah an absinthe-inspired text message telling her that she was nuts emphasized just how bad an idea it was, and that was definitely the case. Draining his bank accounts and acting out her frustration on Doug’s action figures is worrisome to be sure, though it seems like at least Doug has a backup option at the office with Kelsey. She sure does not like Clyde, but I’m glad they’ll be working together on this Uber for doctors idea. Marty and Jeannie fighting is a big joke that Clyde always makes, but it managed to lose them the account when Jeannie went against Marty in the middle of a meeting and tried to pitch her own idea. Malcolm got Marty pretty testy in his home life, and Roscoe had an outburst that shows us that the kid he used to be is completely gone. Jeremiah’s speech was strong, but it’s clear that Marty has lost control of all aspects of his life. On another note, I was thrilled to see Mary McCormack in her guest spot as someone who definitely did not see the value in acquiring Kahn and Associates.
