Is it just me or was “House of Cards” inspired from Obama’s corrupted presidency???

“Frank Underwood learned it from me” – Obama

Everything in that “House of Cards” TV show on Netflix, totally reminds me of Obama. Frank Underwood is a corrupted, lying, closeted homosexual, psychopath and murderer just like Obama.

Yep, Frank Underwood certainly did learn from Obama. Think about why Obama himself is an avid fan of the show? Probably because Frank Underwood reminds him of himself.

Something tells me that the makers behind this show… David Fincher and the crew know what kind of man Obama really is. This show is almost like Obama’s biography.


Robin Wright says the Obama administration is more corrupt than Hollywood, is she right????

Robin Wright, the star of “House of Cards”… says that the U.S. Government is more corrupt in Hollywood. She also revealed some pretty juicy info that government officials really do sleep with reporters just like what goes on in the show.

More on the story, here.

I really believe that “House of Cards” is an attack on the Obama administration. You would know when you watch. Everything in the show is pretty similar to what they do. I don’t wanna spoil “House of Cards” for ya, you’ll have to start watching the show yourself to see.

Do I agree with her, though?

Yes, both Hollywood and the US Government is corrupt but I’d say the US Government is more corrupt absolutely. Hollywood is just dumb. Some of you may ask, how is Hollywood corrupt? Well for a lot of reasons: ego, greed, over paid actors/directors, Hollywood is a billion dollar industry, etc. I also hate the direction Hollywood is going in with all of these popcorn action movies and the obsession w/3D. Tired of all the remakes and reboots as well.

I’ve been to Hollywood in California once. I visited the Blvd once and it was interesting to say the least but I don’t think I’d go again. Hollywood is too gimmicky and too expensive. I would say that my favorite part of Hollywood was seeing Griffith Park and the Planetarium. Seeing the Hollywood sign pretty close was amazing as well. I didn’t run into any celebrities, though. While Los Angeles is crazy and a big circus there — it was interesting to see all that cinema history, though. I liked the Hollywood Walk of Fame. If you don’t believe me that I went to Hollywood, I got videos in youtube to prove it.


Why “House of Cards” is so great…

Last night, I finished the final two episodes of “House of Cards – Season 2” and here is a brief review without any spoilers.

The reason why this show is so great is for a lot of reasons. Good acting, good writing, and most importantly — it’s the show’s unpredictability that keeps us watching. This is another one of those shows who don’t care what the viewers think — they’re gonna upset you. Lets say if you like a character and he/she could get killed off anytime, unexpectedly. Plus, this show has the coolest music theme for the opening intro.

Another reason people kept watching is Frank Underwood. He maybe a pretty shady and powerful politician much like Obama but Frank Underwood is pretty like-able. The show is mostly about government corruption. A lot of the things that goes on in this show is pretty similar to what happens in politics in real life, that’s probably another reason this show is addicting. The acting of the cast is very well-done. While Kevin Spacey kills it… everyone else does a great job too like Kate Mara, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly (who plays Doug Stamper), etc.

This season had a few shockers. Usually in TV drama shows, they usually save the big shockers for the end of the season but with this show, the big shockers can happen at anytime. It didn’t matter if it was in the beginning of the show, the middle or the end… something big is gonna happen. Season 2 have more character development… you get to know more about each character this season than the last season. “Season 2” was very very good, better than Season 1. I’m sure “Season 3” will be even better and already looking forward to “Season 3”.

I can see this show being around for a long while… hopefully it’ll last for about 7 – 8 seasons, maybe more.

I always knew that Kevin Spacey is a great actor. I’ve been watching him in movies for years and I think this is his best role.

If you haven’t started this show yet, I suggest you get on it, right now. You would see why President Obama likes it so much.


When does watching a lot of Netflix become binge worthy???

Binge watching TV shows is nothing new. Binge watching TV shows have been around for years even before Netflix. Before Netflix, binge watching TV shows used to be done through DVD sets. Before DVD, binge watching TV shows was done through marathons on TV.

The “House of Cards” TV show is bringing up the topic of binge watching online. Why? Simply because “House of Cards” is binge watchable and addicting as hell.

Check out this interesting article/blog on “binge watching”, here.

I’ll have to confess that I’m pretty guilty of binge watching on Netflix. I binged watch quite a bit of shows on Netflix: “Lost”, “24”, “Sons of Anarchy”, the original “Star Trek”, “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and I’m currently watching, “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”. I had to take a break from “Star Trek: DS9” so I can watch the new season of “House of Cards”.

I’ve also binged watched shows on DVD like “Game of Thrones” and “Dexter”.

I would usually watch 3 to 4 episodes a night… sometimes a lot more depending on how addicting the show gets.

I hate cable TV. I don’t watch much cable TV much anymore… I just use Netflix as a good substitute ’cause Netflix is way better than TV. There are only a few shows I like to watch on cable TV.

It’s interesting how addicting Netflix really is. Why is it addicting? It’s because you can watch anything of your choosing at any time you want. Plus, there are all kinds of cool stuff to watch on Netflix. All kinds of great TV shows, movies, documentaries, indie films, crappy b-movies, etc.

I’ve been watching Netflix more than playing video games on the PS3 admittedly.

Yeah, I should cut down on the binge watching and should focus on guitar playing (which I have been doing a lot of that too) but should we feel guilty of “binge” watching? No. Not at all. Like they all say, you can only live once… just once… so live your life the best as possible and the way you want to. Watch all the good stuff before you die. Nothing wrong with it.

Watching TV shows, movies, and playing video games maybe a lazy way to live life, sure but it helps you think and gets your mind off everything else in life. You’re alone and that’s all matters. Good way to relax and focus.

I’m NOT 100% lazy, though, like some accuse me of. I do get out of the house often. I do get my exercise on like go to the gym and do cardio so I’m all good.


Can’t wait for “House of Cards – Season 2”!!!



I like most holidays but Valentine’s Day is my least favorite holiday like most singles. For once, I look forward to Valentine’s Day ’cause that’s the day when “House of Cards – Season 2” will arrive on Netflix. So on that day, Feb. 14th, I’ll be watching “House of Cards”.

It really is a great show, guys. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch Season 1 before Season 2, though. Frank Underwood is a badass. “House of Cards” was Netflix’s first original TV show and already it’s a big hit. As soon as I saw the first episode, I was immediately hooked like everyone else. It’s an addicting show. I’m sure Season 2 will be just as great.

This is one of the best shows on television for sure other than “Breaking Bad”, “Sons of Anarchy”, and “Dexter”. I don’t watch a lot of cable TV. There’s only a few shows that I like to watch. You really should check out, “House of Cards”. Awesome show. Good cast, good writing and just entertaining as hell!


Ready for the return of Frank Underwood??? “House of Cards – Season 2” set for release on Valentine’s Day…

I’m pretty stoked for Season 2 of Netflix’s “House of Cards”. When season 1 arrived on Netflix, I was immediately addicted to the show. The show is so good. It maybe a politically driven show but the writing is perfect and the cast is awesome. Lets hope Season 2 won’t disappoint. I’m sure it won’t. Season 2 will arrive on Netflix Feb. 14th, 2014 which is Valentine’s Day. Can’t freakin’ wait!!! It’s about time that they gave us an announcement.

See the teaser video, here.


Cool Video: Frank Underwood spoof of the White House Correspondents Dinner…

Netflix’s original series, House of Cards, has gotten so popular that Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) is becoming a favorite character for everyone. The show decides to spoof the White House Correspondents dinner by having Frank Underwood join in. “House of Cards” is a political drama that has a bit of dark comedy in it as well. The show can also be humorous.

I laughed pretty hard at this video. Especially the Anthony Weiner comments which really did it to me.

“House of Cards”, really is a great show; wish they would get season 2 green-lighted already. Enjoy the laughs.



Why “House of Cards” is one of the best TV shows in a long while…

So I finished Netflix’s first original TV show, “House of Cards” Season 1 this week. The show is very addicting from the very start. Why? Because all the characters are very likeable. The show is well casted and has an all star lineup. Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Kate Mara, etc. The show also has some of the best writing. It is almost perfect. As soon as you start watching the show, it’ll leave you wanting more and more. Why is this show addicting?

Because this show wants to give you a reality check of what politics can be really like behind the scenes. Yes, this show is fictional, but it can be realistic too. Once you watch this show, you’ll realize that the world of politics isn’t an easy job as you think. It’s all ego, power, greed, etc. You would also see politicians get setbacks like dealing with alcoholism and affairs with other women. Things like that. Everything that politicians deal with in real life, is a part of this show.

While Francis Underwood is a great character, it’s a character named Peter Russo, who steals the show. That character is what makes the show works. Peter Russo is played by an actor by the name of Corey Stoll. Robin Wright’s character is pretty strong too.

Not bad for a 1st time original show for Netflix, and I’m already looking forward to Season 2. I’m sure they’ll get right to work on Season 2, since the first season was very successful and got positive reviews everywhere. I’ve been a long time fan of David Fincher’s work for years, and he continues to impress me.

If  you haven’t started watching this show yet on Netflix, get on it. The show was surprisingly amazing. I didn’t think it would be that good either.


Netflix’s original TV show, “House of Cards”, is very addicting!

Now you can add David Fincher’s TV show for Netflix, “House of Cards”, to the list of my favorite current TV shows. So far, I’ve watched 6 episodes of the show on Netflix, and can’t get enough! It’s surprisingly really good! Great writing, and acting by the cast! This is Kevin Spacey’s best acting in his career, and Kate Mara (who is Rooney’s older sister) is a pretty good actress too. It’s about this guy named Francis Underwood, who is a ruthless Congressman, and he is desperate to become President of the United States, and would do just about anything to get there. David Fincher didn’t direct all of the episodes this season, Joel Schumacher directed some too. I’m halfway through this season, and there are 13 episodes.

It’s a pretty realistic show and pretty entertaining. I was skeptical of this show at first, but after checking out a few episodes, I was immediately hooked!

Is Netflix the future of TV? Absolutely! “House of Cards” is becoming a big hit, so I’m sure there will definitely be more seasons in the future. I’m also sure Netflix will create more original TV shows and movies.

If you have nothing to watch on Netflix, I would recommend you check this show out yourself. You can tell this show is a David Fincher creation, ’cause of his unique style. The way he films this show is the similar way he films his big screen movies. Oh, Fincher and Kevin Spacey already worked together once. Remember the film, “Se7en”?
