Nice but too similar to House of Lies
29 January 2019 | by seyi987See all my reviews

I love the show...no doubt, but it feels too similar to House of Lies. There is love interest in Regina Hall who has a stable boyfriend (reminding me of Kristen Bell in the first season with the same). There is also his team and their the constant swearing and somewhat outrageous behaviour. Both instances, Mo (or Marty as he was called in House of Lies) sit at the top of firms involved in the Capital/Financial market.

The striking similarities is the sole drawback I have with the show, making it feel like I have seen the scenes before. Other that that, it is ok.
