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 their 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.
