I'm about half-way through the series and I think it's "ok" overall. Not nearly as good as the original BBC series. But I applaud Netflix for financing their own programming. The other original Netflix show which was also "ok" was "Lillyhammer". Nothing great, but watchable. HBO definately is the king of original programming. They made some epic series such "The Wire", "Deadwood", "Rome", "Generation Kill", "Band of Brothers" and many others. If Netflix plans to compete with HBO on programming, they have a long, long way to go. Overall, Netflix streaming is a decent deal for me since I don't have any traditional TV or cable.
You do realize that HBO and Showtime where in the bidding for House of Cards.
