I recently finished the Netflix original series, House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey. Spacey plays the majority whip in the US House of Representatives (3rd in line), who ruthlessly pursues power. House of Cards presented a compelling story about power politics in Washington.
Instead of releasing an episode of the show each week, Netflix made all episodes available at once. I think that this is a great model and is how I would prefer to watch serialized dramas. Of course, I could do that for every series that comes out by not watching any until they are all released, but I usually don't wait to do that.
