    Well of course anonymously! (as long as hanging on to one’s stained clothing wasn’t a fad that caught on. ;))

    I started watching the very first episode but there was a dog in the street that looked like it had been hit by a car. I had to quit watching. If you tell me the dog's ok maybe I could try it again!

    Ooo. Can't tell you that. But, you never ever see the dog. Not at all. Keep watching. This scene sets the tone for how ruthless this guy can be. How he justifies things in his mind.

    Man, thought I was watching a republican in that opening scene. :)

    First one was pretty good. Will have to watch more.

    I just finished S1 ep.1-you're right, as difficult as it was to watch, the opening scene did set the tone...

    Omigod, this is television crack for me. I only started watching three nights ago and could not *wait* for the next disc to arrive!

    No one can wring sarcasm out of script like Kevin Spacey. He is fascinating to watch and the plot lines are terrific.
    I love that his initials are F.U. heh heh heh heh

    It has been quite a ride watching this show thus far. I was born in Washington, D.C. and visited once or twice a year until I was in college. My stepmonster actually pulled some strings to get me an internship at the Washington Post when I was 17. I didn't go out there that summer, and have always wondered how my life might have turned out if I did. When all is said and done, I definitely am not, nor ever have been, ruthless enough to "make it" in a cut-throat environment...I fold under pressure. :(
