The unusual suspect: Netflix, up until now, relied on others to produce the movies and TV shows that it streams to subscribers. But that changes Friday with its release of 13 episodes of “House of Cards,” a crime drama starring Kevin Spacey that will only be available to subscribers and won’t be available on cable.

We’ve watched our share of “Mad Men” marathons thanks to Netflix, but subscribers are warned not to subject themselves to 13 straight hours of Kevin Spacey.

Express yourself; just keep your clothes on: A U.S. District Court judge has ruled that San Francisco can go ahead with its ban of most displays of public nudity. “In spite of what plaintiffs argue, nudity in and of itself is not inherently expressive,” the judge wrote in his opinion.

Peace before bedtime: The U.S. Senate, by an overwhelming vote of 94-3, confirmed Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry as the successor to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
