I was able o successfully use $expand for two lists
        url: url + "/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('" + listname + "')/items?$select=Created,Title,NumCommentsId,ID,PostCategory/Title&$expand=PostCategory",
        method: "GET",                                                      
        headers: { "Accept": "application/json; odata=verbose" },
		timeout: 2000,
        success: function (data) {
            complete(data); // Returns JSON collection of the results
        error: function (xhr,status,error) {
But when I try to access postCategory, I get an object.
for(var i =0; i < data.d.results.length; i++) 
			var imgStatus = (dateDiff(data.d.results[i].Created));
			if(imgStatus == "New")
				imgCategory = "<img src='' alt='New'>";
		    //bldRow.row.add([ dateFormat(data.d.results[i].Created), "<a href='#' onClick='openModal("+data.d.results[i].ID+");return false;'>"+data.d.results[i].Title+"</a>",/*data.d.results[i].NumCommentsId,*/imgCategory]).draw();				   
			bldRow.row.add([ dateFormat(data.d.results[i].Created), "<a href='"+data.d.results[i].ID+"'>"+data.d.results[i].Title+"</a>",data.d.results[i].PostCategory,/*data.d.results[i].Category,data.d.results[i].NumCommentsId,*/imgCategory]).draw();				   

Here's what i get for postcategory
Any ideas?
