Look, I am a sucker for DVRing bizarre television series and watching other bizarre ones on Netflix.
But when I watch one of those shows, I mostly begin the viewing by fast forwarding past the opening credits.
You know, like everyone else, I am in a hurry to get to the main story!
Well, let me tell you about “House Of Cards,” a Netflix show.
First of all, as soon as the new second, third, fourth and fifth season’s began, I was lost! Totally lost! So each time a new season has begun, I am forced to watch ALL the episodes from the previous season! That’s a wonderful indication of just how twisted and bizarre is this show! Currently, I am only five episodes into last year’s shows!
But here is the most twisted part of this post. I really do not care how much of a rush I am in when I begin to watch a “House Of Cards” episode. I might be hungry and anxious to eat my lunch or dinner while watching. I might be late for a doctor’s appointment or work meeting. I may even really be dying to use the bathroom at the moment! But, damn it, I cannot fast forward through the opening music of that show!
Seriously! I am mesmerized by the opening theme. I researched my mesmerization tonight. The guy who composed that music is Jeff Beal.
Below are two links. One is Beal explaining the creation of the theme. The other link is the theme itself.
Thanks for putting up with my twisted nonsense here. But Jeff Beal’s sound really is fantastic!
