House of Cards is a wicked one-hour political drama series from Media Rights Capital that slithers behind the curtain of power, sex, ambition, love, greed and corruption in modern Washington D.C. An uncompromising exploration of power, ambition and the American way, the series orbits Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey), the House Majority Whip. Underwood is the politician's politician - masterful, beguiling, charismatic and ruthless. He and his equally ambitious wife Claire (Robin Wright) stop at nothing to ensure their ascendancy.

 fantastic viewing

this helped me get over my breaking bad addiction ....and is now my new addiction. Kevin Spacey is sensational as the 'do what it ever it takes' politician. Echos of the west wing but with more relevant topics and sensational acting ........buy it and thank me later

 He couldn't possibly comment...................

Although I'm old enough to remember the 1990's Ian Richardson trilogy it's also been a good twenty years since I did see it so watching this new US adaption from (amongst others) David Fincher meant there was little baggage in my mind about going in.

And indeed, with movie quality production values, a high calibre cast led by Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright (particularly excellent as a wife with a backbone of steel) and a twisty, adult oriented plot this political thriller plays smoothly and slickly from episode one all the way to the finale as Frank Underwood (Spacey) wreaks revenge on his own Party for his passing over for the appointment of US Secretary for State in the wake of a recent election. Sparing no one in his determination to come out on top.

Excellent performances, and even though some of the narrative twists and turns won't shock seasoned TV drama viewers, the show is a quality addition to the political drama genre and I look forward very much to the upcoming second season.
