Wow…where did this come from? I initially dismissed the idea of a series produced by Netflix, but you can sense right away that House of Cards (a 10-episode deal that begins in early February) is top-grade stuff. Sharp, cut-to-the-chase dialogue by Kate Barnor, Sam Forman and Michael Dobbs. Seemingly one of Kevin Spacey‘s best roles in a dog’s age, easily in the league of his Margin Call guy. Two episodes directed by David Fincher (whoa!), three by James Foley and two by Joel Schumacher.
