    Awesome that it is being released at 12:01 on a Sunday. I know what I'll be doing that Sunday.

    Crap, is that Memorial Day weekend? It is!! I won't be home that weekend.

    Sounds like you've made a huge mistake.

    I love the idea of watching the entire series at once, but even if it's 23 minutes an episode (rather than 30), I have a tough time watching almost six hours of ANYTHING. I thought watching LOTR in its entirety in the movie theater was a good idea, but in execution I was done about halfway through the 2nd one. Then again, that was 12 hours, hehe.

    Is it going to be all 30 or will they release them one per week?

    What does that matter? iPhone? iPad? Ignore family!!

    I'm almost positive they've said they'll dump 'em all (not 30, 15) at once, just like their other orig series.

    It's 15 and they will be released all at once just like other Netflix Original Series.

    I read in an article about a week ago that she length of the shows will be however long they need to be to tell the story.

    Since they are outside the network model there is no need to be bound by 23 minutes.

    I think the concept of these episodes is really intriguing, with the same stories being told in different episodes from different characters points of view. It will be a real triumph for creativity of these do well and other creators have the chance to try unconventional ideas.

    has anyone heard whether or not these eps will [eventually] be released on Netflix DVD, or is this series going to be limited to only Netflix streaming?

    That is neat. I had read that each episode would focus primarily on one character, with other characters making appearances, but I hadn't heard that the episodes would tell the same stories from different POVs.

    House of Cards is being released on BluRay (I didn't read anything about DVD) so I would expect the same for AD.

    Though apparently a DIFFERENT company has rights for House of Cards on physical media.

    I guess not, but they could have. Would have cost more up front, but they're not the sole financer and don't own the content.

    Which I didn't realize until I just read an article about it. I had thought it was a Netflix production. It's really a Media Rights Capital production. Netflix has licensed the first window to show the content. Much like other networks do.

    So that widely reported deal where Netflix paid $100 million for the 26 episodes being produced was not entirely accurate? That other company funded the production and used Netflix's money, but Netflix wasn't producing the show themselves?

    There was never a 26 episode plan. It was a 10 episode plan. They shot too much footage and made 15 episode. (According to them)

    I remember it being reported that Netflix greenlit two full seasons (26 episodes) at a cost of around $100 million. Are you saying that the 26 episodes was never actually planned, but that's simply what resulted because the production shot too much material?
