Just recently discovered House of Cards on Netflix.

The 4th season has recently aired and a 5th for next year has been announced.

Its one of those TV shows you never get around to watching, I missed the highly rated West Wing for instance and always had plans to watch it maybe when im retired.

However I took the plunge with House of Cards over the Easter Break and I have to say its good TV.


Costing around 2-3 million dollars per Episode its gritty addictive viewing with a very talented cast.

Kevin Spacey plays Frank Underwood, a Democrat Congressnan who is the Whip of the House, and has big plans.

I have to say, the part is made for Spacey.

Anyhow i highly suggest giving the Show a watch, its a great insight to US politics.

I watched all the english version and it was very good.

I would not watch the american series. After watching Vince Foster and many many more get killed in real life( CIA Director William Colby) I know that real life is far far more lethal

Ive been watching this on Netflix too, recently finished Season 4 but I wont spoil anything for you.

The production values in this show are excellent and its no wonder it has wont multiple golden globes, you should give it a go youngDan, likewise I've watched the UK version (Which is also on Netlfix) and though it is good and only 3 episodes long, it looks and feels dated. I think its from the late 80`s or early 90`s after Thatcher is ousted.

It's brilliant! As someone else said Spacey was made for it, he really makes the show IMO.
