The Day Arrives!

The day has arrived and I'm not talking about Valentine's, oh no. I've already said that me and the hubby haven't been bothered about Valentines Day for a while now. No, the hubby and I have been waiting for February 14th for a long time, ever since we found out that was the release date for House of Cards series 2.



If you haven't seen House of Cards - Why not? You should, but let me tell you a little about it first. House of Cards is an American political drama television series, a Netflix original production which was produced by Beau Willimon. It follows the story of Frank Underwood (played by Kevin Spacey - awesome actor), a Democrat from Carolina's 5th Congressional District and House Majority Whip. Now if you're anything like me (being from the UK) you understood everything until I said 'Democrat' but actually that doesn't matter because you soon will when you watch the series. The show also stars Robin Wright who played Jenny in Forrest Gump and Kate Mara who was in Transsiberrian. Together they make the series absolutely fantastic.

So as I said the hubby and I have been waiting for today and last night before going to bed we checked what time House of Cards was going to be released. It turned out that at 8.01am UK time it would be available for viewing and we couldn't have been more excited! 

This morning we hurried out of bed, got the kids their breakfast and scuttled into our room to watch the first episode of series 2. Now I'm not going to write any spoilers, I think they're awful and I'd rather you all go and watch the thing instead of me telling you about it but I am going to say you definitely should go and watch it. The first episode of series 2 pulls you back into the story straight away and is truly shocking. I think my actual words were "Did that just happen?!" and the hubby said that's just what he was thinking. It was probably the best start to a series I have ever seen and I can't wait to see more. 

There's the thing about Netflix that I love - I don't have to wait a whole week before watching another episode. I could, if I wanted to, load up Netflix and sit and watch episode 2 right now because they have released the whole series straight away. That's how TV should work, no waiting for a week between episodes and no airing at different times in America and the UK. Just simply log into Netflix, click on House of Cards and start watching. Awesome.

I don't think there has been a series I've liked more since Lost and I couldn't recommend it enough. The hubby and I are big TV/movie junkies and House of Cards gets right up there in our favourites list. Go watch it, like - RIGHT NOW!!! I know I'm going to.

Do you have a favourite show you're excited about seeing again? Is there something you miss because it ended?

    1. It's awesome that Netflix have released the whole series at once, this is the way all TV should work! I've heard of the Walking Dead but have never watched it. Is it a Sky thing?
