    Whut up? Well, since sadly I got permanently laid off last week and therefore don't have any workplace to go to anymore, I had plenty of time to dive into the newer, American remake of "House of Cards" starring Kevin Spacey on Netflix.

    I plowed through 5 episodes yesterday (like I said, I had unwelcome time on my hands), and as someone who loved the original "House of Cards", I can definitely give this one a thumbs-up, too. I think politi-nerds will especially enjoy the depiction of how the sausage gets made and how current some details are, such as the battle over collective bargaining rights for public employee unions.

    So for those of you who can afford Netflix because you still have a job, some other income, or haven't been out of a job long enough to have to cut down to the bare essentials, I say check it out. Good times.

      Hope it turns around quickly for you.

      I haven't seen House of Cards yet but will check it out.

        My recommendation for "House of Cards"  is to watch the original one first - at least the first Series.  I think it will give you more enjoyment of this new one.
