House of Cards: Season 1
If you somehow missed it on Netflix (it’s still there, BTW), here’s the dark political drama starring Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and the lesser actors desperately trying to keep up with them. A big win for Netflix; for journalism, not so much. (Sony)

The Newsroom: Season 1
Aaron Sorkin’s super-talky, super-liberal, super-Acting! drama set behind the scenes at a cable-news network that, somehow, took the Liberal Media by storm last year. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wish Olivia Munn really was that smart. (HBO)

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters
Cute kiddies Hansel (Jeremy Renner) and Gretel (Gemma Arterton) grow up to be badass supernatural vigilantes in the winking, cartoon-violent steampunk action flick Van Helsing probably should have been. (Paramount)

Wedding Band: Season 1
The best cable comedy of last summer watched by no one, mashing-up Spinal Tap and Wedding Crashers into a very canceled series. Starring Brian Austin Green and Harold Perrineau, with one strange Megan Fox appearance. (Fox)

Clip
Teen Jasna (Isidora Simijonovic) runs away from her dull Serbian home to party, drink booze and do drugs with the cool kids, recording everything on her phone and eventually regretting it all. Isn’t this why Vine was invented? (Artsploitation)
