Now that we’ve both finished the new season of House of Cards, we feature it in a special joint mini review. Better or worse than the first season? How does the Netflix all-at-once model affect the show’s buzz? Bob follows that up with a mini review of the latest season of Downton Abbey.
In weekend picks, Logan’s got his eye on HBO’s Doll & Em, and Bob takes us through the mainstream and indie movies opening this week.

Logan mini reviews HBO’s Looking. He likes it, but does he think Bob will?
In weekend picks, there’s some reality TV starting up this week, and a handful of interesting (which may or may not be the same thing as exciting) choices. Need for Speed? Veronica Mars? Bad Words? Enemy? Or maybe go back and catch up on The Grand Budapest Hotel? We’ll let you know.
After a little post-Oscars chat, we talk about how Non-Stop is like cotton candy, how fun it is to see a bunch of TV stars in the cast, and why Logan might have sided with the hijackers over Liam Neeson.
Bob mini reviews Inequality For All, which Bob liked overall (and Logan can tell he wouldn’t like).
USA’s Suits returns, and is about the only TV weekend pick from Logan. Bob hopes The Grand Budapest Hotel will be showiing near him, but if not, it might be 300: Rise of an Empire.
