What's the verdict on Netflix's 'House of Cards'?

One of the hottest new dramas of the season isn't on your television - it's wherever your closest Internet connection happens to be.

Netflix's "House of Cards" has generated considerable buzz because of its risk-taking: the reported $50 million price tag to produce a single season; the streaming entertainment service's push for original programming; and the fact that all 13 episodes can be watched in one gluttonous sitting.

But however you decide to watch it - serialized, like your appointment viewing TV shows, or as one long movie - critics are calling "House of Cards" a must-view for Netflix subscribers.

'30 Rock' says goodbye

[Editor's Note: If you haven't seen the series finale of NBC's "30 Rock" and are sensitive about spoilers, you should skip this post.]

After seven seasons of loopy hilarity, “30 Rock” is over. Thursday night, our friends at “TGS” told us that they were going out for cigarettes and would be back in 15 minutes.

In other words, goodbye forever (or at least 35 years).
