'House Of Cards' Season 1, Episode 10 Recap: Things Fall Apart

It was bound to happen before long: all of Frank's allies are turning into enemies. Even his beloved Claire, the woman who's stuck by him for decades, has had enough of his lies, his manipulation and his using. For her to break away signifies a major shift in House Of Cards -- could it be that Frank's carefully calculated empire is finally crumbling to dust?

'House Of Cards' Season 1, Episode 6 Recap: The Brick

You know when a TV show tries to convey an issue via a metaphor, and sometimes it's subtle, but other times it has all the covertness of a heavy brick hurtling through the air? Well, in this episode, House of Cards uses a very literal representation of what it's trying to communicate. In this case, yes, it's a brick, and it's smashing through Frank's window.

'House Of Cards' Season 1, Episode 4 Recap: Think About It

This episode is all about big decisions; nearly every character is told to "think about it" at some point or another. The irony is, in making most of these choices, there is no "right" or "wrong" outcome -- and in some cases, like Peter's, there is no good option at all. I suppose this is representative of politics at large: for every bill passed, for every law enacted, there is a winning party and a losing party. No victory comes without its victim.

'House Of Cards' Season 1, Episode 3 Recap: Just Peachoid

In all honesty, I was getting a bit worried for House Of Cards after I'd finished the first two episodes. Sure, the show was intelligent and witty, and the lead actors had their own special brand of charisma. I felt myself caring about (most of) the storylines. But it was missing something integral to any modern TV show (yes, even the weighty dramas have it too): humor. We finally got it in the third episode, in the form of a giant peach.

Media Bites: Why Canadian Politics Isn't Netflix Material

The fact that Canada has spent a decade creating nothing comparable to House of Cards, Game Change and many more political dramas is a shame, but hardly surprising. We're a plucky lot -- and certainly no slackers in the world of entertainment -- but this is one realm where we're hopelessly out-gunned. There's never been (and never will be) a compelling Canadian political drama for one simple reason: Canadian politics is not interesting. "Yes sir, we'll get right on that, sir" isn't the sort of dialogue from which compelling scripts are made.

Why Netflix Is Genius

After we'd exhausted our favorite shows and watched numerous movies from the '80s that we'd forgotten about, we grew a bit bored with Netflix. So it's only natural that the company would take another step and move forward with a smart, thoughtful plan.
