    I feel sad for your inability to just enjoy an entertaining movie without you being critical over it's components.

    And if they keep making shows of that quality and putting them on Netflix, good, because I can watch them on my own time instead of having to marathon or something, or wait til HBO releases them on DVD.

    Shame on NetFlix for wanting to put out just another critically-acclaimed television series! Shame!

    I know, seriously.

    If Netflix is serious about original content, this was exactly the type of show they needed: a low concept idea thats full of talented and respected actors/creators.

    That said, I'm not inlove with it. It's weird, I don't mind sexposition in stuff like Game of Thrones or Sopranos, but in this show, it just feels like they're doing it just cause they can't think of anything else. Like the random handy in the hospital bed. What was the point of any of that? It was a really minor subplot. It's hardly Littlefinger explaining his masterplan while training his whores. Now that's sexposition!

    Some of the characters fall really flat with me and what's been going on with Mara's character is just so obvious that I was really hoping they wouldn't go that route.

    The Zack Morris' talking to the camera thing is really bugging me too. Especially when things are happening in the background, like when Mara was on the phone with her dad while looking in on Spacey.

    It's def worth checking out, but I don't think it's amazing. I dunno, maybe I was expecting more out of a Spacey/Fincher collaboration.

    I'm still strongly attracted to Kate Mara though.

    I like it. Only have the season finale left to watch. I like the breaking-the-4th-wall moments, but it might be because I love Spacey's condescending snideness.

    Kate Mara looks good in her underwear.

    Just finished it.

    That's how they ended it?

    So many dangling plotlines......

    I'd give this show a "B"



    Mainly for the Kate Mara, despite the fact that her character is atrocious
