Girl of the Day - House of Cards (Kate Mara)

We just finished watching Sherlock, and it didn't disappoint.   Very, very clever stuff, with great and very funny acting by Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Holmes and Watson.   So now we've got a lull until the next  show we're interested in comes on, House of Cards (2/14).  Looking forward to it, and particularly to the fact that, on Netflix, you can watch the whole thing back to back to back if you want to.
