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.

People are failing to understand that once he reached POTUS, he was faced with some insurmountable challenges. He wasnt elected, probably his biggest challenge. Tons of bi partisanship and people at his throat. Its now no longer him being able to outwit everybody to get what he wants, he actually has to fight and claw for everything that happens, and it isnt happening quite as often as previous seasons, and that is okay. I mean house of cards is the name of the show and they have to show his downfall eventually.

I agree with you BRC, Doug deserves some sort of award, his acting is phenominal. A lot of people really didnt enjoy his arc this season and I have to think it is because they never appreciated Doug in the first place. IMO he is the 2nd most important character in the entire series, and at times he is a better actor than Spacey.

My issue is not with Frank struggling to come out on top more as it is the lack of focused agenda like you had in the first two seasons. And that is not an admonishment of the writing. To the contrary, they did exactly what they should have done with the story. As you say he was not elected. He did not run on any specific agendas. The first two seasons you had the specific agenda of revenge and taking he White House. There was no plan beyond just getting there. So the story is proceeding exactly as it should, with him flailing around trying to figure out what to do next. It is on point and it is superbly done. I just do not find it quite as satisfactory as the specific mission story line.

That's why you don't open the thread until you have seen all 13 episodes.

I go a year at a time between looking at the Justified thread due to being a season behind.
