The 13-episode first season of House of Cards will be available on Netflix Instant Watch on February 1st. House of Cards is a political drama from David Fincher and Beau Willimon following the career of a ruthless politician played by Kevin Spacey. Additional cast members include Robin Wright and Kate Mara. The series is an adaptation of the BBC miniseries from the early 90's.

All 13-episodes will be released simultaneously on Feb 1st. This marks a huge leap into original programming for Netflix, and it's been estimated that they invested over $100 million in the first two seasons. Note that the second season is funded and already in production. Both Fincher and Willimon discussed in interviews how they're excited about a project with very little network interference and no week-by-week concerns over ratings. They likened the experience to creating a 13-hour movie. It's a different business model for television than what we're accustomed to, and many of us are excited to see how it all turns out.


Synopsis:

Bad, for a greater good. Ruthless and cunning, Congressman Francis Underwood (Oscar® winner Kevin Spacey) and his wife Claire (Robin Wright) stop at nothing to conquer everything. This wicked political drama penetrates the shadowy world of greed, sex, and corruption in modern D.C. Kate Mara (“American Horror Story”) and Corey Stoll (“Midnight in Paris”) costar in the first original series from David Fincher (“The Social Network”) and Beau Willimon (“The Ides of March”)

I'm only about 5 episodes in and loving it so far. Also love the fact that they released the entire season at once. No waiting a week between episodes and no commercials. :yes:

Fincher/Spacey. That's enough for me to already have the an interest in the show.

Gonna start watching one of these nights, still wanna finish The Godfather trilogy(got 2 and 3 to go) before I start watching anything else.

If I understood your post correctly, actually this show has been released in it's entirety by Netflix, at least season one has. You can watch start to finish until the season ends in one sitting if you'd like.

I enjoyed it. I like how Frank (Spacey) speaks directly to the viewer from time to time.

Nice opening effort for Netflix productions.

If your into political drama, I'd recommend it.
