  • Happy Birthday Mr. (Vice) President (Spoiler Free for Season 2, contains Spoilers for Season 1)

    9.0
    House of Cards launched on February 14th which makes it the choice option for those boycotting consumerist holidays for needless affection. If you enjoyed the first season of the cold, color muted, and morally ugly show then the second season certainly doesn't pull any punches especially in the first hour. This isn't a review for the whole season merely an invitation for those who are reluctant to get into it again (or at first) whether wading through 26 hours of television on Netflix is worth it. I would say yes, because the series is infinitely watchable. Kevin Spacey reigns supreme as Frank Underwood takes his place as Vice President all the while continuing last season's suspicions of Zoe Barnes and her other reporters as to Underwood's possible involvement in Peter Russo's death. The few complaints the show garners I think is fair: mainly that Frank has no true adversary, a Moriarty if you will, that can match his wits. That and the disappointment of David Fincher not returning to direct any of the installments for the second batch of 13 episodes. But if you want to see human ugliness, muted colors, great performances, and a rise to the top that is almost Shakespearean in its levels of calculation, then House of Cards is for you.moreless
