So, I have had NetFlix for a couple of months, now. I originally got it for the free trial month, then got dragged into “Breaking Bad”, and kept it on to complete the series. However, I was considering suspending my account for a few months, as although I think NetFlix is great, I have quite enough TV content and DVDs/BluRays to catch up on.
However, on logging on to do just that, I see that “House of Cards” has been remade, but this time against a US political setting. I might be sceptical about this – quite often, such remakes don’t go well (“Life on Mars” and “State of Play” springs to mind) – but this time the antihero – named Fracis Underwood – is played by Kevin Spacey.
A remake of one of my favourite shows, starring one of my favourite US actors! This is apparently a NetFlix exclusive, available from February 1. Of course, there is now no way that I can cancel or suspend my account, and I have pencilled in February as being “busy”.
