I know I'm a bit behind the eight ball here, but I've just recently discovered the marvelous House of Cards. I remember hearing about how terrific it was a few months ago, but I had no idea just how good it was! Have you seen it?
It's a political thriller/ drama loosely based on a mini series from Britain of the same name, which incidentally was very good telly too. It is a story of political revenge exacted by Democrat and House Majority Whip Francis Underwood. It stars Kevin Spacey as Underwood in what can only be described as his finest hour.
Produced by one of my favourite directors, it's incredibly gripping, very attractive to look at and totally addictive! I've nearly finished it, but I feel I could immediately watch all 13 episodes again as there's just so much detail in it!
