Netflix: House of Cards

Premieres tomorrow. All 13 episodes drop at once.

Heres an interesting nugget from a Forbes column:


http://www.forbes.com/sites/dorothyp...s-this-friday/



But BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield thinks that if House Of Cards is a success, Netflix could also start demanding a fee from the broadband suppliers that plug their fat pipes into our homes and let us stream House Of Cards in the first place.

You can read Greenfield’s full report here (subscription required) but his basic idea is that the cable companies are taking about $40 bucks a month from you for your Internet service and not sharing any of that with the content side because for the most part, they are paying networks like AMC and Discovery a per subscriber fee on the cable side.

If Netflix’s exclusive programming takes off and viewers demand it, Netflix could be in a position to start taking a per subscriber fee from the cable guys on the Internet side. It’s not a completely unprecedented idea. According to Greenfield, ESPN gets a per sub fee for ESPN 3 from broadband.

It would be a bold move on Hastings’ part and one that he’s not yet in a position to make. But if shows like House Of Cards help Netflix become the next HBO, the service could be looking at a whole new stream of revenue.

Watched the first episode, it intrigued me enough to watch another one tonight. The wife's review "There were some things I liked, some things I didn't." Well, gee, thanks Mrs. Obviously Obtuse!

Same here. I just marathoned it in 3 days. Really enjoyed the show and loved all the episodes dropping at once.

I thought Spacey was fantastic

Fell asleep during the season 1 finale last night so I'll watch that tonight and I gotta say that Francis Underwood is more evil than Walter White. I hate him so much. Spacey is great.

Just finished the last episode.

WOW. Great season.

Best 1st season of anything in a while...better than Homeland, IMO.

Pretty high praise. I've only watched the first 3, but plan to dive back in this weekend. I've loved it so far.

I watched the first 2 or 3 eps of Lillyhammer, couldn't get into it even though I'm a big fan of Stevie. May go back and give it another shot at some point, it usually takes me a few eps to warm up to things unless they're just stellar.

I'll probably start watching Cards this weekend. I put it in my queue as soon as I saw it (I'm a sucker for anything that's based here) but this thread has got me excited to watch it now.

Hopefully they do a decent job with making it not too obvious that a lot of it's not filmed in town (I know some of the opening credits stuff is here, but like most other shows they don't want the hassle of filming in town. We also don't give good incentives so I've heard they're doing most of their filming in B-more and Havre de Grace.). It's gotten decent local reception, so it sounds like they did. I liked a lot about the first season of Homeland but they were god-awful with most of their supposed-to-be DC stuff. It was like they weren't even trying.

I didn't have much interest in this until this thread. Political dramas aren't usually my thing. Watched the first two episodes last night and really liked it.

Haven't read anything in this thread because I'm only three episodes in, but just such a well written show. I'm a Spacey fan anyhow, but I'm loving it so far. Netflix did well.

We had crappy weather here Saturday, so I managed to get through the whole thing this weekend. I thought it was pretty solid as a whole. Some interesting stuff going on (Especially that one development at The Citadel...hopefully that will come back in a big way rather than just fading out. To me that was maybe the most interesting twist of the entire season.) that I'm interested to see what they'll do with in the future.

I agree with cookster's spoiler, and there were several other things that I was just like "come on, someone who's supposedly that savvy would NEVER do THAT," but hey, it's TV.

I was surprised that the narration thing didn't bug me after a while but overall I thought it was ok (I was afraid it was going to end up being a crutch for sloppy writing/plot development, but for the most part they avoided that.). The only time it started to annoy me was when the writers couldn't get out of their own way with beating you over the head about how bad Frank is. Sort of like the end of the pivotal scene with Russo at his house. It's strange, most of the time the show is pretty well written and subtle like they know their target audience is sharp and they give them credit. Then you get these odd instances where they wield the script like a blunt weapon. I'm sure they're trying to add that extra little punch of gravitas, but they end up being melodramatic eye-rollers for me.

I was pretty impressed with the production values, and it was miles ahead of Homeland regarding certain things being believably in/near the District. There were a few things script wise that were off, but they were fairly minor (though easily avoidable) and you'd probably have to know the city pretty well to catch them. They did a good enough job with depth of field and framing the shots that even the DC scenes that weren't DC were close enough visually.

I'll definitely keep watching.

I'll probably have it finished by tomorrow night.

I like to marathon the shit out of series, which is one reason I like Netflix so much. I only have time to do it in the Winter so the release of this was perfect, and I love that they dropped all the episodes at once. They spent a ****ton of money on this series, so I hope it's well received and continues.
I've just got the finale left. It has definitely turned in ways I could not predict since my last post. I didn't really like the Citadel episode, I thought it was weird as a whole but the twist that was put in there will probably be used in a huge way at some point down the line. Honestly, 12 episodes in I'm excited to see the season finale. This could go so many different ways.

Definitely the best new show I've seen in years. And I'm a HUGE fan of Person of Interest which previously held that distinction.
