Pop Cultural Osmosis: Episode 29

popculturalosmosis:

Welcome back! We’re sorry for the impromptu hiatus, but now that the hurricanes, overseas trips, and broken laptops are behind us, we’re so happy to be recording again.

This week, we talk about our favorite 30 Rock episodes, discuss Netflix’s new original series House of Cards, and finally…

One thing I totally forgot to mention in our House of Cards discussion was how weirdly uninteresting the title sequence is. For a director who seems to devote a great deal of attention to the title sequences in his films (see: Se7en, Panic Room, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) it seems like he phoned it in for his first TV outing.

Also, I finished the series over the weekend and, though it goes off the rails a bit at the end, it’s still pretty great.
