If you haven't already, be sure to check out Season 1 of Derek on Netflix. This show, staring Ricky Gervais is possibly the most moving portrayal of human interaction I have ever seen. I'm stoked that this Netflix Original got picked up for a second season, which will be available on May 30th. It doesn't have as much glitz and intrigue as a show like House of Cards (which I also recommend), it definitely has enough heart to compete.
Make sure you watch season 1 so you're ready on the 30th. But make sure you have a box of tissues ready. They pack a lot of emotion into 7 episodes.
