This week, we are seeing a lot of series and season premieres, returning shows, and the Golden Globes. An exciting week! And today, we are featuring two shows on Showtime, which can be watched for free today! (For more information, see: Sho.com). Jenny & Megan are taking a break today, so check out what Kyle & I think you should be watching.
I started the first season of House of Lies for one reason: Kristen Bell. I hadn’t watched any previews, so I didn’t know what I was getting into, and I made the mistake of starting to watch the first episode on my laptop while on public transportation. Not really smart, but I started loving the show from the first moment it started. And the balance between the cases-of-the-week and the season-long stories is very nice.
Season 1 featured Marty (Don Cheadle) and his team, the Pod, consulting for the company Galweather while a merger with MetroCapital was looming which would cause most of them to get fired. The season ended with Jeanie (Kristen Bell) doing the right thing in exposing the sexual harassment that has been going on at Galweather, which also effectively cancelled the merger and saved a lot of jobs. During the season, there was a lot of sex, awkward humour, and Marty getting increasingly farther away from his son. And it ended with Marty and Jeanie hooking up.
On tonight’s episode, “Stochasticity,” Marty and the Pod adjust, and Jeannie relives haunting memories from a drunken night.
Check it out tonight on Showtime at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of House of Lies @ Clicker.
I’ll also be watching The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23, Happy Endings, Once Upon a Time, and Revenge.

It’s the start of a new week, but for a lot of people, it’s a bit of a short week, since kids are off from school on Monday & some people will be off for work because of Martin Luther King Day. It’s going to be an extra short week for my kiddo, as he has Monday off, then Tuesday his school is off for some school improvement day, and then Thursday is a late start day, so he goes in 2 hours later than normal. *shrug* Anyway, whether you have days off this week or not, settle in to watch some great TV tonight, including what we think you should watch below! But first, I want to mention a few items of interest. Tonight is The 69th Annual Golden Globes on NBC, the season finale of Hell on Wheels on AMC, season premiere of Undercover Boss on CBS, and series premiere of Napoleon Dynamite on FOX, so if those interest you, don’t miss em! (By the way, Kyle is on vacation, so JJ is filling in for him. Everyone say hi!)

My first pick for what I think you should watch tonight is the season finale of Leverage. It’s been a great season. Hardison and Parker have come a long way, and we had some great stuff between Hardison and Eliot. As always, Nate and Sophie have had their ups and downs. You have to love it, though… They wouldn’t be them if they didn’t! Last week, Tom Skerritt was back as Nate’s father, and when he found himself in front of explosives, he kept Nate safe as the building exploding, killing him. We also found out that the man behind all the suckage is none other than Victor Dubenich, played by Saul Rubinek (Warehouse 13), who was the first bad guy on the show back in season 1! That was a twist I didn’t see coming! Will they take him down? Hopefully, we’ll find out tonight!
On tonight’s episode, “The Last Dam Job,” the Leverage team must recruit old friends and rivals in order to take down Latimer and a foe from their past. That would be a great episode title for the series finale, but luckily, it’s already been renewed for another season!
It’s the start of a new week…and I am starting it with a broken laptop. My down arrow key popped off last night, and we can’t get it back on. My husband is going to take another look tomorrow when he’s more awake, but…I’m going to be REALLY pissed off if I have to send it in and get it replaced, cause we just don’t have the money for that. BAH! Still, some great stuff on tonight, so at least there’s that!

I’m a huge fan of John Grisham’s books, and one of my favorite movies is The Firm. So when I heard it was coming to television, I was thrilled. It’s not a remake of the book/movie, which is kind of what makes it even more interesting. The show continues the story of attorney Mitchell McDeere and his family 10 years after the events of the film and novel. As a young associate, McDeere brought down the prestigious Memphis law firm of Bendini, Lambert, & Locke, which operated as a front for the Chicago mob – and his life was never the same. After a difficult decade, which included a stay in the Federal Witness Protection program, Mitch (Josh Lucas, J. Edgar), his wife Abby (Molly Parker, Deadwood), and daughter Claire (Natasha Calis, The Possession) now emerge from isolation to reclaim their lives and their future – only to find that past dangers are still lurking and new threats are everywhere. The show also stars Callum Keith Rennie (The Killing), Juliette Lewis (Cape Fear), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), & Shaun Majumder (Detroit 1-8-7).
