Chicago – By now, many of you have probably worked your way through the thirteen episodes of Netflix’s highly anticipated and (mostly) highly acclaimed new dramatic original series, “House of Cards,” starring Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Corey Stoll, and Kate Mara. While TV critics often get programming in advance, this was a case where everyone had access to all 13 episodes of the first season of a show at the same time.

Television Rating: 4.0/5.0

It’s only one way in which “House of Cards” changed the rules. And lest you think that this series is not a game-changer, call someone at HBO, Showtime, Hulu, Amazon, or the ratings-deprived networks. They’re all paying close attention to what Netflix has accomplished here in defining a new business model that is not just profitable but creatively vital as well.
