Lazlo’s Clicker: House of Cards, Being Human, Smash

HIGHLIGHTS

Netflix had a big decision to make with House of Cards, the remake of the BBC political drama that it outbid HBO and AMC for.  Once the first season had been completed, did they release it one episode, one week at a time, or let its customers decide how to watch the show.  They went with the latter, making all 13 episodes available at once.  I suspect that no matter how viewers thought they were going to consume the show, they wound up much like I did.  I sat down to watch the first few episodes, only to stagger off to bed 7 hours later, bleary eyed, only to wake up the next morning and dive right back in, finishing the season in less than 24 hours.  I couldn’t help myself.  House of Cards is that good.
