Started watching the second season of "House of Cards" last night.  Kevin Spacey is excellent as POTUS and such a slimey one.  Robin Wright (she dropped the Penn name) is excellent as First Lady and so manipulative.   Makes you wonder where the writers got such compelling material from.

Oh my...LOL

We don't watch much TV beyond the fishing and hunting shows, car stuff and the news.

I have 2 that I watch, Project Runway and Say Yes to the Dress and I try to catch up Big Bang Theory when I can.  But our On-demand has been down for 2 weeks now and now they have to send a tech out.

I believe House of Cards is a Netflix product but maybe you can buy the series on Amazon.  It is so well worth watching.  For $7.99 a month Netflix has quite a lot to offer and there are so many English series to watch as well - some that we don't get on PBS or OPB.

I don't feel at all dumb watching it as, although we all know it is fictional, it's a real expose/ of what goes on in government and it leaves nothing to the imagination.

yep, "suspending disbelief"
is the first cognitive function to go after he frontal cortex is turned off when watching TV!

The frontal cortex is where we make decisions.


Lots of movie and TV stars wont let their kids watch it at all or only an hour a day. 

Wonder why>Huh?

I haven't watched that one JTF although I wish I had started as my friends who watch it really love the series.   The trouble is I would have so much catching up to do and I need to preserve my "cognitive function", hahaha.

What would they do without Anecdotals or Snark

Consider the Underwoods as the Clintons and the entire series will make more sense.  I've finished all current seasons, so I won't give anything away.

I saw a movie where only the military and the police had guns:  Schindler’s List.
