I liked it couple of unexpected things happened which made me like the show even more. Also loved the way they touched the surface of the fourth wall with the glances straight at the camera,and the way the action would freeze while Don Cheadle would give us a description or explain terms to us.

I am eagerly awaiting the next episode.

I also enjoyed the Pilot espisode and am leaving the series setup on my dvr. However, not to sound like a prude but what's up with almost every premium channel original series having to have nudity in them? Every once in awhile for me is okay but in a lot of the cases it's not even necessary (e.g. Strikeback had sex scenes just tossed in that had nothing to do with the plot line at all).
My comments and opinions are my own and not necessarily those of DirecTV.

That's being distributed exclusively through Netflix, right?

House of Lies is a TV Series starring Don Cheadle on Showtime that debuted last night.

You're thinking of House of Cards, which is a a Kevin Spacey series to be distributed by Netflix in the fall of 2012

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I was yawning through the first 20 minutes. I felt too much like an old Tim Meadows skit from SNL. It picked up a bit in the end and I will give the second episode a try.

Yes indeed you are correct, my mistake, Hopefully a MOD will correct the thread title.
