House of Cards

I have recently been sucked into “House of Cards” a Netflix original series starring Kevin Spacey.  Spacey plays Congress Frank Underwood who was snubbed by the incoming President on a cabinet appointment and sets out to exact revenge.

I have not followed politics much in my life, so it is hard for me to judge how true to life the writing is.  However, it is very entertaining in a Machiavellian sort of way.  Thirteen episodes were all released on February 1st, 2013.  I started watching last week and watched 3 episodes in the first sitting and another 3 episodes in the next sitting.  I am going to try to savor the rest.

In terms of television dramas, it is well cast and has a very cohesive story line.  I am not sure how well single episodes would stand up on their own.
