House of Cards - Season 2 (Discussion & Possible Spoilers)
 
I'm two episodes in and I know I should get to bed but hot damn, the new season is AMAZING!

Anyone else watching tonight?

Outstanding. I cannot believe who died in the first episode. Start's to slow down a bit by episode 3 - haven't got past that yet.

I plan to binge watch it with the binge wine tonight. LOL

I only got through three episodes before finally getting to bed. So far, the show is simply outstanding. Very glad to have it "back" at last!

It's estimated that Netflix paid over $100 million on making 26 episodes. At nearly $4 million per episode I hope they're getting their bang for their buck

As a viewer I am.

As streaming content grows more competitive, Netflix is branching out in a big way: producing its own original series. It's a bold and risky bet, particularly the $100 million Kevin Spacey vehicle "House of Cards" that went live just after midnight on Friday.

Pissed me off. Not so much that this character bought it (Had a feeling it was coming) but that it happened so soon into the season.

I hope it continues the last few episodes of season 1. I found the show really damn boring for several episodes, then it picked up at the end.

Plus I should have bought the show when it was $8 on DVD, I like DVDs. :lol:

I loved it. I had a strong feeling it was coming considering what happened in the British version, but I suspected it would occur towards the end of the season and be this season's big twist. The fact that they put it right in the first episode took me completely by surprise and upset all my expectations of how season 2 would play out.

Only 1 episode in for me, I'm not much of a binge watcher and prefer to space things out.

Just saw the first episode.

I checked this thread earlier, so I knew going in that someone important was going to die and that I wouldn't like it.

That expectation was met.

I'm disappointed that a big favorite of mine and an indelible part of the drama is gone. F.U. indeed. Still, I'm glad that one of the best shows on right now is back and I look forward to more of Frank Underwood's machinations.

Best ever breaking of the fourth wall, by the way.

Saw the first episode earlier.

That incident, in conjunction with his discussion with the restaurateur, felt like Frank crossing the line to confirmed psychopath. Unlike the Russo killing, it didn't really seem to have a rationale (risk/opportunity factor) and seemed a bit like a play for shock value. Interestingly, Claire seems okay with it.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing more of this.

(Edit: Nice fourth-wall-breaking indeed, and I thought the opening title sequence was great thus time around.)

Yeah, it was. About five minutes before, I was thinking to myself "Frank's been ignoring us." :)

Apparently, this show is set in a world where no-one has even entertained the idea of any NSA data collecting scheme and where all the Tor network's hidden services still work. It's kind of cute.

I try to space shows out, but when they're so good I lose all control. :scream:

Yes!!! That made me tick as well! I wonder how many people are going to try Tor after watching the show...

Yeah, the major event that took place in the first episode was a shock!

Also, did anyone else


I can't wait to see the second episode!
