don cheadle pulls off making a seriously flawed and cynical character interesting. He lies, cheats and scams his way through situations by understanding and taking advantage of people far more cynical and reprehensible than himself.

It was a tough call but with the freedom airing on Showtime provides, HOL has to be my favorite new show!! The cast is spectacular. I've always been a fan of Don Cheadle but never saw him quite like this. The entire cast are so perfect together I can't imagine this show with any other actors. It doesn't even matter what "after work" the crew is after, the chemistry is what makes this show a Must See. Smart, Witty, and Full of surprises!

This show is hilarious. My wife and I love it. Marty (Don Cheadle) is a character that in a way you want to hate (he lies, cheats, steals and womanizes), but yet in some way relate to and feel compassion for. Kristen Bell is as good of an actor as she is beautiful and I think she is stunning! The rest of the cast is great. I found it brilliant, witty, and down right comical.
