Ok, so I've just watched the first season of House of Cards in about a day and a half lol. I think it's my favourite series ever...the subject matter and the execution couldn't be more perfect.
I read that it is was originally a UK series. How does that one compare for people who've seen both?
I think there'll sooner be another Bradman than another Warne. - Gidgeon Haigh
[Warne is] the greatest bowler ever produced in this entire world - Muttiah Muralidaran
[Warne is] the greatest bowler of all time - Glenn McGrath
In my opinion Shane Warne is the greatest cricketer who's ever lived - Ian Botham
Warne is the greatest cricketer to pick up a ball ever.
And is the greatest bowler I have ever laid eyes on. - Brian Lara
I've only seen the original UK series, which was brilliant. Ian Richardson in the lead role was quite outstanding.
I really must get around to seeing the newer version, as everyone I know who's see it has said the same as you. But I'd recommend that you do likewise with the original if at all possible.
I prefer the Brit one, but that's probably just down to parochialism. Richardson and Spacey both superb in the central, but very different leads.
Give it a go, it's not long and Dobbs (the writer) was a Thatcher aide, so you'll probably like him.....

gaz really does put up some quality numbers.
The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
I long to be a member of the Bucking Squad.
the magaluf special where gaz nails a bird in the resort pool 15 minutes into the trip is a highlight.
All about Hollyoaks of late for me, can't wait until Sienna gets collared
It's the best it's been since Justin (the one who looks like Freddie Flintoff) sought revenge for the death of his sisters
OMG, they Killed Clayey
Kind of works

I've never seen Dr Who, but I know there are fans on CW. Anyone seen the Google game on the front page in honour of 50 years of Dr Who? Pretty cool.
Yeah the game was fun, shame about this stultifyingly dull episode, honestly Billie Piper is there a worse actress in the history of the world?
well it was saved a bit by my fave doc turning up near the end

So um DOCTOR WHO SPOILERS BELOW
Can anyway explain why they went from a TBC rescuing Clara from the Doctors mind where they introduced John Hurt, to a 50th episode featuring John Hurt, Clara etc and being all like "lets go stop the time war yay!" and everyone is blissfully unaware she's meant to be trapped or dead or something? And isn't Smith meant to be killed off shortly?
What's going on?
