I am a Kevin Spacey fan, and this is good tv, but not as good as the original British mini-series from which this is taken. As good as Kevin Spacey is, he just can't match the wicked charm that Ian Richardson had in the original House of Cards/To Play the King/The Final Cut. The British story really brings home that, while Francis may not be Macbeth, his wife is definitely Lady Macbeth. I recommend watching both versions (they are both available on Netflix, sorry Amazon). That said, totally support new creative products on new media. Keep it up, Netflix!
