Overall I love the new look. I'll join in with some of the others and say I'd like to see smaller spacing when not using card view. I'm sitting in front of my 65" as I type this, and in card view I can see 8.5 tv shows without scrolling. With card view off, I can see 7. That gap is just huge between posters. Everything else I think is a big step forward.
The spacing is in-line with all of our other apps and it is actually necessary when you remove the cards. The removal of the cards and having text "floating" underneath them makes it much harder to take in the different items when they are jammed too close together.
