House of Cards is a political drama television series developed for American television by Beau Willimon for the streaming network Netflix. The series stars Kevin Spacey as Frank Underwood, a ruthless politician with his eye on the top job in Washington, D.C.

It premiered today (Feb 1st, 2013)



The whole season is already posted which is kinda cool and its netflix attempt to expand there company. I guess they are using this to get my subscribers but also to see if making there own TV series will pay off. Im in the middle of the 2nd episode and I think this is pretty damn good. its interesting. I also like the style they have the show in. Kevin Spacey's character will at moments talk to the viewers kinda like the show house of lies does.

If you like Kevin Spacey, if you like political type tv shows, and etc you prolly will like this series

Just watched all of it, great show. Once you get to know the characters it can get a little predictable (atleast the main guy is)

Hoping to watch it pretty soon.

Does anyone know any numbers on how this cost Netflix to make? I really want to know if making their own shows like this could actually be sustainable.

I agree with Matt. This style of all at once takes away from the experience. Breaking Bad is so [inappropriate/removed] great for me because when the episode ends with Walter White telling Jesse to "RUN" I sit on that an entire week and thats all I think about. The individual episodes have a much larger impact because I can discuss everything about that episode all week long with everyone else. When you watch an entire season at once, there are certain things you wont remember or breeze by. If the show had a bad episode, you just move onto the next one and erase that one from your memory.

It kind of reminds me of LOST with my family. They didn't watch it live so they think the show was amazing yet there was a few parts that really dragged on but they didn't realize it because they just breezed through the entire series. When I asked them what they thought about the season 1 finale, they didn't even know what episode I was talking about. I was like that doesn't seem right, the finale was crazy and had me thinking about it all year long until the season two premiere, but for them it was just another episode of the show.

The verdict is still yet to come in, but I'd rather take me show in doses rather than all at once.

Great explanation. I was the same with LOST. However, I prefer to watch seasons all the way through at once. I hate waiting.

eh.

i've watched 5 or 6 episodes and it really never creates any suspense or high drama. i love Spacey as an actor, but he's playing it easy in this one, never challenging his ability.

B-. at best.

There is a ton of tension in the last 3-4 episodes

Halfway through and loving it. Spacey runs the show, and it's worth watching for him alone. I love the breaking of the fourth wall, and the political drama and intrigue are a bit trite but nonetheless entertaining.
