I've been meaning to try the British version after consuming the first two series of the U.S. one in a month. Rachel Mara is gorgeous, I was constantly caught off guard by how hot Robyn Wright is, as well.

she's the grand daughter of the rich guy that owns the giants so she and her sister get to be featured in the new york times for being good looking and in show business

she wasn't very good at explaining things, either.

her argument was usually "dude dude this show is like oh my god you just have to i can't dude dude"

i don't see how this could be anywhere near a bad show. my only gripe is how could a house majority whip in the US congress get away with so much in the open. and why is he propping up somebody for governer knowing he as like ten million skeletons in the closet

but its tv so

of course not. netflix spent much $$$$ reviewing and studying what their users watch and then amalgamated all those things into one show for your viewing convenience.

i've been a netflix user for years now, and i'm just waiting for the reality show about two surfers who, when not waking up at dawn to smoke weed and surf, whittle away the hours by doing stand-up comedy in the vein of social commentary while referencing banal 70s and 80s pop culture.

it should also have a laugh track

i'm starting to think that the only thing that makes this a lot of new tv fool people into thinking it's good is because it has great movie-like production quality

lot of those shows have flopped (low winter sun, the killing ect) so i don't think thats it. usually he the upped production quality they bring in good writers, actors ect

house of cards:west wing::goodfellas:the godfather

newer, snappier versions wouldn't exist without the shoulders of the original to stand on

(haven't watched very much of house of cards yet, just a few episodes, but i see what you mean re: cynical vs west wing - makes me want to watch some west wing!)

though, i didn't have the attention span / patience for the godfather whereas west wing i could watch all day

second season wasn't as good... it felt almost like an entirely different show. sometimes it felt like poli drama schlock you'd see on network TV. but I'm guessing it's mainly buildup for what'll probably be the last few seasons. the stakes were raised too high in the first season and if it continued with that craziness it'd probably have ended up like Homeland or Dexter. so yknow its whatever... still i cared enough to marathon through it, so that's saying something

and frank is probably the first fictional character on a tv drama that made me feel disgusted. unlike with walter white he had a logical trajectory to get to where he did. but underwood is a true antihero and i really want to see him go down for what he did despite being the main protagonist. i really feel no pity for whatever comes his way

why is he propping up somebody for governer knowing he as like ten million skeletons in the closet


and boy do i feel dumb in retrospect for asking this
