<i>House of Cards</i>: Five Reasons to Binge-Watch This Show

The future of television may have arrived today in the form of Netflix's heavily hyped original series House of Cards, a 13-episode political thriller set inside the halls of power in the nation's capital. It's not just the prestigious names (Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are in front of the camera, while directors like David Fincher, Carl Franklin, James Foley and... um, Joel Schumacher are behind it) that are associated with this remake of a popular British series that makes it such a notable production -- it's also the way Netflix is choosing to put it out into the world. Instead of going network-style with one episode per week, the streaming service is releasing all 13 hour-long installments of Season 1 in bulk, allowing viewers to decide if they want to consume the whole thing in one day, one week or one month. It's the ultimate test of the relatively new practice of "binge-watching" television, an experiment Netflix will try again in April when it unveils an entire new season of Arrested Development in one fell swoop. Will it work? We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, we watched the first episode of House of Cards and here are five reasons why you'll probably want to binge-watch this series.

<I>New Girl</I>: Roommate Do’s and Don’ts of the Week

It's Thanksgiving, so that means it's time for turkey and familial drama, especially on TV. In "Parents," Jess's divorced mom (Jamie Lee Curtis) and dad (Rob Reiner) accidentally (though it's really part of Jess' grand scheme) show up at the same time and then the fireworks fly, and we also get introduced to another Schmidt (Rob Riggle). While double Schmidt would be too much to handle on any kind of regular basis, we'll allow this absurdity to unfold once a year. Here's what why we're largely thankful for this episode:
