Recently, you’ll have realised I’m back to job-hunting.
So there’s thing’s I’m going to be economising on.
I won’t have to lose net access: what with BT’s prices changing over the years.
Although I stress hopefully, there.
One thing I do know may — depending on circumstances — will suffer?
Is my viewing habits.
As you MAY realise, I’ve been able to buy and watch the odd box-set: and write about them here.
Given the job situation? That may slow down, if not stop. But we’ll have to see, won’t we?
Right at the moment?
I’m aware of a few things.
I’m aware I’ve got enough iTunes credit to rent a few movies, and possibly catch up with one or two box-sets.
Should I be able to balance the budget.
After all, I’ve still not seen season three of Penny Dreadful, nor of The Strain: something I’d like to do.
As I got the box set, before the job situation came crashing down around my ears, the one thing I was able to do, was see the last three episodes of season four of House of Cards.
And yes …
I THINK the series is a good investment …
Episode 11 — Chapter 50 — focuses on Claire: and on her and Franks attempts to win a TV debate with Govenor Conway and his running mate, General Brockhart (Colm Feore.)
Things go BADLY awry, though … when someone claiming to act for the Islamic Caliphate Organisation … takes a family hostage … in the US, itself …
Episode 12 — Chapter 51 — sees the protracted negotiations start, to free the hostages: with Governor Conway offering to help in the heavily monitored negotiations.
Whilst? Whilst that’s happening, Tom Hammerschmidt (Boris McGiver) is back on staff at the Washington Herald: and managed To release a preliminary verso of an explosive story, online.
Incriminating Frank … up to his eyeballs …
Episode 13 — Chapter 52 — shows us two of the hostages being released: and Frank’s reaction to this. And … ? And, whist Chief of Staff, Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly), organises presidential reaction to the Herald’s reports?
The terrorists announce they will be killing their last hostage …
Which, with President Underwood’s reaction — “We make the terror.” — seeming to sum this series up?
I HAVE to admit, Series four is a VERY good entry in the House of Cards oeuvre.
One that does encourage me to keeping job-hunting.
I’d like to get season five, as and when.
Given that Season four’s THIS good, I want to keep watching House of Cards …
