It's a girl living as a boy.

Did they just drop the story line about Marty's dad being sick from last season?

My assumption is the reason he is dating a girl half Martie's age is because he is sick trying to get a little bit of fun before things get worse.

The one puzzling thing about this season is why Martie dislikes Lex so much. Anyone who accepts Roscoe as much as Martie would not seem like the kind of dad bent out of shape that his son's girlfriend is different.

I don't normally care that much about awards, but I think T.I. deserves a nomination for his role as Lucas. He was really good in this week's episode, and it was fun seeing Marty being led around the nose for a change. And Doug's dance in the office was priceless.

He dislikes Lex's actions, not gender orientation. As we can see from the latest episode his concerns were not unfounded.

Agree about TI. He is quite the actor.

I really like the shocked look on Marty's face when he was talking to Dre's wife. Marty was really out of his element dealing with real gangsters.

It was also naive of Marty to not realize that she could be in on everything. And, even if she wasn't, does marty think that she would dare cross Dre and end up dead herself.

This continues to be one of the best shows on TV. The characters, especially Marty and Jeannie, are so complex. Add Doug and Clyde to the mix and there is never a dull moment. And then there is Monica. You really don't want to mess with her.

While they are filler, I don't think they want to make this show so serious by just following marty and Jeannie for 30 minutes. But I hear what you are saying.

Their contribution this season has been weak at best.

What a dark way to end the season. I am not sure what they do with Marty to bring him back to the agency. You just knew that deal between he and Jeannie would blow up in his face at some point in the season. It is strange that Marty would be on the hook while Jeanie is in the clear.

It sounded like Jeanie's US Attorney "friend" made good onher promise to try to pull some strings to get her clear of possible prosecution. Oh the webs we weave!

Clyde just got on my nerves this season. His only reason to exist as a character is to crack jokes. When they tried to make him a well rounded character and he's bringing business to Marty etc etc I just didn't buy it. That's not who he is.

I actually did like the story line through out the season with Doug, his wife and the girl he liked at work.

Jeannie is so pretty!

Lots of weird flash backs last night. Weird way of showing the past.

Roscoe turned into a teenage punk. He's going to get in trouble before the season's over.

Two words...depressing start. Not that it won't get more funny, but they've really got the characters in some hard places and Marty isn't fun anymore.

I don't lurk as much as I used to and I NEVER listen. Comes from being old and cynical.

Agreed. Just like the season of Entourage when Vince was doing bad and everything was going to crap.......boring.......this is supposed to be entertainment, not real life!

This show was billed as a comedy when it started in season 1 and it has moved more and more to the drama/storyline side and away from comedy each season. I think i found 1 thing amusing in the entire show last night.

And anyone disagree that down the road we will find out that is really Marty's kid right?

When you have Marty talking to the camera, a little bit of Shark Jeanie, Doug and Clyde some how talking about the death of Doug wife's that smoothly transitions to a bj joke with a smidgen of mean Monica. All of that going on while they conduct a deal that is one part econ 500 and another part high stakes shell game I don't know that sounds like House of Lies to me. I just caught up, and it looks like a good start to the season.

I'm with you. I like this show, and this past episode was pretty great. All the best comedies mix in drama in varying degrees. I'm not sure I actually ever thought of this show as a straight-up comedy to be honest, whether it was billed that way or not. In any case, it's enjoyable to me, and that's all that matters, however it's labelled ..
