I have begged off TV for years after all there is only so much time in the day and I do love to read. I know from my kids that the content on TV is sometimes so much better than watching a movie. Better character development. The last time I was totally absorbed in TV was during the HBO heyday of Six Feet Under and The Sopranos. I believe Sex and the City was around at that time too. I loved those shows.
I finally decided to get into the swing of things and watch all the Girls shows. Brilliant. Then came House of Cards. The whole idea that Neflix put up 10 shows at the same time so you can just sit down and watch an entire season without every touching the dial (the shows just run back to back) is so genius.
I have always been a fan of Kevin Spacey. He is such a great actor and he is better than ever in the House of Cards. Watching him powerfully manipulate the inner circles of Washington DC is pretty awesome. The writing is so clever that I want to sit down with a pad of paper and pen and write some of the lines down to use myself.
