Netflix Series House of Cards Debuts February 1st

Kevin Spacey by Sarah Ackerman

I’m Excited!  Sort of…

It’s no secret that I am devoted to my Netflix.  I can’t count the number of discs rented or hours of streamed content watched in this house via Netflix Logo, their first original series is House of Cardstheir services.  So I was very excited to hear that they were going to release an original series of their very own – starring Kevin Spacey and produced by David Fincher!  How can anything be wrong with that?

Well, it turns out that the series, House of Cards, revolves around a ruthless politician.  Crap, it’s my entertainment Achilles Heel.  Political intrigue – unless it’s The West Wing – just makes me sort of nauseated.  I have to see sleazy politicians on the news every minute of the day – I prefer to keep them out of my entertainment.

But it’s David Fincher and Kevin Spacey!  I have to at least give it a try.  The series premieres February 1st.  Take a look at the trailer and see if you’re willing to invite this power hungry politico into your home.

    I still haven’t seen it – I’m working on my politician phobia!

    I’ve talked with 3 people who have seen the entire series. Two of them binge-watched all 13 episodes in less than 1 week. One did it in a weekend. Joan and I took two weeks.

    Lots of politics, but lots of smart writing and plot twists too.

    Just think: Forrest Gump’s Jenny and Princess Buttercup as a lean, slick DC power broker. It’s not just Spacey in there. 😀

    I’ll want to binge watch. I think I’ll watch it by myself so I don’t have that annoying husband self control imposed on me. I heart my Netflix binges.
