House of Cards

  1. Pyro Baby Daenerys Wins All the Awards In This Video of Kids Reenacting 2014 Emmy Nominees

    I will take what is mine with cookies and juice boxes.

    The 2014 Emmys take place this Monday (yeah, not Sunday—I know, it's weird), and to celebrate, Mom.me has put together this video of children acting out imagined scenes from the six Outstanding Drama Series nominees. If you're worried about what Game of Thrones scene would even be appropriate for children to reenact, don't worry, they went creative with it and came up with the best possible solution.

  2. House of Thrones Is The Game of Thrones/House of Cards Mash-Up You Didn’t Know You Wanted

    "When your neighbor brings you rotten deer meat, make sure he takes first bite of jerky."

    You've already finished marathoning House of Cards season two, and Game of Thrones doesn't premiere until next week. For now, watch House of Thrones, a parody made by Quiznos (?), which sees Frank Underwood on a rampage to take over the seven kingdoms of Westeros. Sorry Dany, but we'd kind of love to see Frank (and his accent) on the Iron Throne.

  3. House Of Cards Against Humanity Is Now A Real, Officially Licensed Thing

    "I can't believe Netflix is using _________ to promote House of Cards."

    Do you like playing Cards Against Humanity, but wish it came with more "power, politics, and passive-aggressive handjobs?" Have we got the expansion pack for you. Well, okay, we don't, but the people who made Cards Against Humanity do.

  4. Netflix Gets 14 Emmy Nods for House of Cards, Arrested Development, and Hemlock Grove

    If anyone on the planet hadn't gotten the memo that some of the best TV being done today isn't on TV, this should drive that message home.

    Those of you who are up early watching the Emmy nominations roll in this morning -- as well as, y'know, those of you who know where Twitter is -- have no doubt already heard, but it's worth mentioning that Kevin Spacey just landed a well-deserved Emmy nomination for Best Actor for his work in the Netflix original series House of Cards. That will come as no surprise to anyone who watched the excellent political thriller produced by Netflix this year, but considering it's the first Emmy nomination for a show that was never actually on TV, it's a noteworthy, if not entirely unexpected, achievement. That it's one of a dozen Emmy nominations for original content on the streaming service says a good deal more.

  5. Netflix, Arrested Development, and the Growing Prevalence of Binge-Watching

    In a lot of ways, Netflix is changing television.

    The concept of watching a bunch of episodes of a TV show at once is either called 'binge-watching' or 'marathoning' the show. Those terms describe two ways of looking at something that's becoming increasingly common thanks to DVDs, DVRs, and online streaming. Is it a binge? An ugly, messy, yet addictive experience in consumption? Or is it a marathon? A long, arduous undertaking that you're proud of afterward? Netflix arguably shifted things further towards marathoning with the release of Arrested Development.

  6. Kevin Spacey Spoofs White House Correspondents’ Dinner With House of Nerds [Video]

    Last night was the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, or "Nerd Prom" as it's jokingly called. Besides a performance by talk show host Conan O'Brien, the dinner also featured a parody of the Netflix series House of Cards with the star of the show Kevin Spacey reprising his role as Frank Underwood. The clip features a number of political figures playing themselves, and also a Big Gulp.

  7. Wachowskis Team Up With Babylon 5 Creator and Netflix for New Series

    Here's a sentence that has so many great things in it, it's almost unbelievable: The Wachowskis will be teaming up with J. Michael Straczynski and Netflix to produce a new sci-fi series called Sense8. Remember yesterday when I said if Spotify is going to get into video production they need to do it really well? This is the kind of thing I meant.

  8. Spotify Reportedly Set to Launch Video Service With Original Content

    Spotify has all but eliminated my need to ever buy music. For a few bucks a month I can queue up practically any song I can think of and rock out. Now they supposedly want to bring that same level of convenience to video. Reports say Spotify is going to launch a video streaming service like Netflix that will offer original content -- also like Netflix. That's all well and good, but I already have Netflix.

  9. Netflix Apparently Did Something Right With House of Cards

    Netflix went out on a limb with original programming when they decided to bring House of Cards to the table. It might seem obvious now to some, but there was a time not that long ago when original programming  for purely digital outlets seemed out of place to many. Netflix reportedly hasn't given exact numbers, but they have said that it's their most-watched show. According to research from Cowen and Company, a financial services firm, it looks like Netflix's original content offering might be doing rather well for itself.

  10. If You Want to See Dexter On Netflix, Do It Now

    Vital Information for Your Everyday Life

    When Showtime's contract with Netflix ends this summer, its current lineup of original programming will no longer be available on Netflix Watch Instantly. This applies to shows that are still producing and airing new episodes, such as Dexter, Californication, and possibly Weeds (which is owned by Lionsgate and not Showtime). Past Showtime series such as The Tudors and Sleeper Cell (in other words, the ones that are already on DVD) will not be affected when the contract runs out. So, if you were planning a Dexter marathon, plan it for the very near future or save up for all five seasons on DVD. And no, this is not related to Netflix possibly outbidding Showtime for the original series House of Cards, making Netflix a player in the hour-long drama series game. Or so they say.
