Anybody else watch this? Pretty good, I thought. Not Mad Men good or Breaking Bad good, but pretty good.

Short version - Kevin Spacey as ruthless DC politician, all 13 episodes of Season 1 available for streaming. They have Season 2 already filmed, but it's unclear whether Netflix will run it one episode at a time or put the whole season on at one time again.

Anyway, I give it a thumbs up. Watched it all in about 5 evenings. It's hell when football season is over.

I thought you were saying that Netflix, and its business model, are a house of cards. :lol:

I was surprised, I thought they had a strong model. Turns out I was way off.

I started it last weekend and I'm 8 episodes in, so far so good. It's an interesting storyline and zi think Spacey played the congressman really well. I like how he breaks the 4th wall to share his thought mid-scene, it's an unusual gimmick but I think it's effective.

Just finished season 2,loved it I did not see that ending happening so soon.,My only complaint is that things came a bit too easy for Frank,it just seemed that his whole plan was rushed, and obviously there will be loose ends, which I'm assuming will come back to bite him in season 3.

Netflix is destroying my life. My family has become vegetables watching it. Does it wear off after periods of time. Its 24/7 right now.

season 1 was pretty awesome... just started season 2 (3 episodes in) and it's shaping up to be pretty interesting as well.
