“This Emmy-winning original thriller series stars Golden Globe winner Kevin Spacey as ruthless, cunning Congressman Francis Underwood, who will stop at nothing to conquer the halls of power in Washington D.C. His secret weapon: his gorgeous, ambitious, and equally conniving wife Claire (Golden Globe winner Robin Wright).”
I’ll admit it freely, House of Cards is on my calendar. The third season of House of Cards goes live today on Netflix. It’s a binge-watcher’s delight.
Have you seen Sesame Street lately? I grew up on it. And disclose publicly that I still watch it, and that I would tune in even if I didn’t have a 6 year old. Why? Because it’s one of the most brilliant things on television. Sesame Street is the intersection of up-to-date learning theory and the wider world. (See where my holy envy is creeping in?)
Sesame Street is in such dynamic relationship with current events and pop culture that it is easy to pull me in as an adult and keep me sitting next to my son. We laugh at and are enchanted by the same things, but from our own developmental stage on the spectrum. Sesame Street is multi-generationally dynamic and relevant to our current lives while still feeding our minds and hearts.
Can you imagine congregational life like that? Let’s go there!
