Watch House of Cards season 3 on Netflix right now

Netflix’s critically acclaimed series House of Cards is significant for a number of reasons. The show itself is a fan favorite that has won awards and been touted as the first Netflix show to truly rival productions from top networks like HBO. Beyond that, however, House of Cards was Netflix’s first big-budget self-produced show, and it let the world know that the company wasn’t just going to be a portal for dusty old movies and stale TV shows — it was going to be a major digital network.

And now, the hotly anticipated third season of House of Cards is finally here. More →

Mystery solved: This is what’s inside a Magic 8 Ball

The “Magic 8 Ball” is a perfect example of a toy that has survived generation after generation thanks in large part to its simplicity. Ask a question, give the 8 Ball a shake, and mystic beings will break through from other realms to give you your answer. And of course, if you don’t like that answer, just give the toy another shake.

Not even the Magic 8 Ball’s inventor likely thought that such an inexpensive little novelty toy would have become so popular throughout the years. Even today though, the Magic 8 Ball is Amazon’s No. 1 best-selling item in the “Toy Activity & Play Balls” category. And at $8.00, it’s certainly affordable.

But the real mystery surrounding the toy is this: What’s inside a Magic 8 Ball? More →

Watch HBO’s hilarious Game of Thrones blooper reel right now

There are few shows on television as gripping, gruesome and dramatic as Game of Thrones, but as with any television show, the actors still occasionally flub their lines, drop their props and stumble across the landscape of Westeros.

Netflix Vs. Broadcast TV

Netflix already killed your video store and it’s coming after broadcast TV next

Netflix already killed your video store and it’s coming after broadcast TV next

For years, the decline in broadcast audiences has been sort of a mild, persistent headache for TV executives. U.S. viewership of “linear television” has been dipping at a speed of few percentage points per year: In some quarters, the drop stabilized for a spell while in others, it briefly expanded to 4% or 6%. But the Nielsen numbers from the second half of 2014 are the worst on record for a six-month period because U.S. television audience decline accelerated by a scary 7% in Q4 2014. More →

You absolutely have to watch Sesame Street’s brilliant House of Cards parody right now

With the third season of House of Cards set to drop this week, Sesame Street has decided to pay tribute to the show by retelling the story of The 3 Little Pigs if it were set in Frank Underwood’s Washington DC.

Watch this immediately: A brand new trailer for ‘House of Cards’ season 3

House of Cards marked a turning point for Netflix. It was a big-budget series with a big-name producer led by a big star, and it let traditional content makers know that Netflix was here to disrupt the space. The show has gone on to receive critical acclaim and win several top awards, and it is widely regarded as one of the best shows on — or off — TV right now.
