I'm only up to episode 8, so I still can't look at the other thread!
I noticed something interesting, the "Popular on Netflix" ribbon of about 40 or so titles now includes the original House of Cards
, so that's getting a big bump too. I also noticed that every series of Star Trek
except poor ENT is on the list. That must be a general list since there's a different one telling me what I'd like (apparently I'm not much of a Trekkie after all according to Netflix).
Anyway, Netflix must be paying attention to that. The moral of the story is that it's worthwhile to do a series under some existing name - remake, continuation - because then you get "credit" for the old one, too. Hanging onto new subscribers depends on giving them something else to watch when they finished whatever they came in to see.
