Just watched the first episode of Netflix's House of Cards series. I was won over in the first 5 minutes, right after the beautiful shot they had of Nationals Park in the opening.
Kevin Spacey has been great so far, as well as all the supporting actors. What I really like is not only the promising premise, but the likelyhood that the success of this show will lead to more HBO-esque/HBO quality online-only TV shows in the future. The production values boasted also bode well for the upcoming Arrested Development series on Netflix. Awesome!
Also, it was filmed in Maryland (Baltimore and Harford County), which is a big thumbs up for me.
