The New on Netflix Thread
« on: June 15, 2017, 01:42:53 pm »
This thread is kind of a crossover with the TV Show Watching Thread, but more specifically for Netflix shows and movies that are being added to stream.

House of Cards season 5 is out. I watched the first episode, and honestly, it was better than I expected (probably because my expectations have been rock-bottom since season 2). We'll see if I end up finishing it.

Oh, and they took Firefly off. Write to your congressman about this, please.

I need to catch up on HOUSE OF CARDS.  I began to think it was a bit far-fetched but by comparison but recent events in US politics, it seems quite mild!

House of Cards season 5 is alright for the first 5-6 episodes, but becomes so absurd that it's impossible to take seriously. And this is from someone who actually found season 3 and the America Works plotline watchable.

I'm curious about what "absurd" looks like these days, so I guess I'll check it out.

Also, Chris, did you watch the original British House of Cards? I've heard that it's better as a whole.

Not only absurd, but some of what the characters do is just retarded. I think you'll find it unintentionally funny though (although for me it mostly just made me mad since my memories of seasons 1/2 are so fond).

@Diego I think I watched the British original when first shown on the BBC but that was about 20 years ago, I believe!
