A week of fantastic streaming releases on Netflix is highlighted by today’s premiere of the acclaimed Netflix original series “House of Cards,” starring Kevin Spacey as a ruthless Congressman. Robin Wright co-stars as Spacey’s ambitious wife with machinations of her own. The show features some of the best directors and actors working in Hollywood today, and is well worth seeking out. Of course, season 1 is still available for those eager to catch up.
There are other gems throughout the week, such as the final season of the popular USA spy drama “Burn Notice,” the newest stand-up special from popular comedian Chris Porter, as well as two of last year’s best independent dark comedies: “Bad Milo,” starring Ken Marino as a stressed-out guy dealing with a monster in his digestive tract (I hate when that happens), plus “Best Man Down” starring Justin Long, with Tyler Labine portraying the titular character.
