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.

It's entertaining, but I don't think it will be remembered 10 years from now. If Breaking Bad is a 10, then I'd put The Wire and The Sopranos at a 9s, Justified and The Shield at 8s and Lost and the Walking Dead at 7s. The only multi-dimensional character on the show was Russo (and maybe Zoe). Spacey and Wright do good job playing villains, but there isn't any humanity in either of them. Maybe I'm judging it too much on the 2cnd season. The first season was certainly better. I'm surprised at the lack of bigger name supporting actors in the 2cnd season. I figured that with all the buzz the 1st season got people would be lining up to do the show.

Frank just found out that Heroes is returning in 2015- in miniseries form to test the waters for the possibility of a full new season. He knows Claire will be super excited by this news.

As a former cheerleader also from Texas AND named Claire, she can't help but identify a bit as she too struggles to save the world on a day-in day-out basis.

Really? A lot there going on, but you really think the Walking Dead belongs anywhere above average at best? Surprising.

Yep. Just finished season #2. Some good cliff hangers.

Walking Dead is a 4 at best. And I had high hopes for it.

100% agreement. I will never understand how/why they deviated so much from the source. The story was nowhere near as convoluted and boring. It gets right to the heart of that shit world and wallows in the shitty nasty gritty hell that living there would be. Instead we get a boorish look and over-hype of the source.

For a while I couldn't understand why HBO would pass on a money making series about zombies, but I have realized if they took the current form of the show how it is written and directed to HBO, comparing it to what they typically put out, it is pretty easy to see why they were willing to pass on it.

They took 1973, this time the crook is replacing the good guy. Walker does have some of that Ford naivete.
