I’ve been catching up on this fantastic Netflix series called House Of Cards. It’s made me stay up through the wee hours, but Kevin Spacey’s portrayal of Congressman Frank Underwood as both brutal power broker and brilliant political tactician is one of the best performances I’ve ever seen. Underwood is a complicated, hungry and manipulative man, but the show ultimately illuminates just how ruthless the political game in America actually is. Frank takes no prisoners and his wife is just as cold and calculating. I’m coming to it late, but are a lot of other folks hooked on this show too? Damn it’s good.
