  • House of Lies - Amsterdam

    8.0
    I liked this episode a bit more than the premiere. It focused more on the jokes and less on the story. I enjoyed the marriage crisis between the sports owners but I found the long segment on how Clyde would confront Cat Deeley incredibly boring.
  • I feel like one of their customers

    6.5
    First of let me state that so far this show is not good, on occasion it has me laughing or pointing at the screen saying "That is cool" . But it has no depth and at the end I have been left feeling like a whale who just got stuck on a beach, it took me for ride that they just neglected to finish properly.



    They main issue I have with this episode (and maybe even the show) is the pace, it is too fast. Maybe this is what the writers intended because the show treats the viewers just like, the team treats their customers. The go in and out in the blink of an eye and take our time as a payment like they take the money in the show. The show is missing the point of what we (the viewers) want or we are missing the point of the show, either way this feels like a sinking ship.moreless
  • Bit meh

    6.0
    So after enjoying episode 1, I found this one a bit meh. When I got to the end, I was thinking "is that it?" Here's to hoping episode 3 is better - I'd like to see more inter-personal relationships (not just Marty's home life) but I know it's still early days.
