One to Watch: House of Cards

If you’re on the look out for a new political drama show to watch then House of Cards is the one for you, even if you’re not a fan of the genre you should definitely give this show a try.

House of Cards revolves around the world Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), a congressman pushing his way to the top in a bid to have power in the White House. Through this journey we meet his wife, Claire who will do anything to see her husband succeed as well as his devoted head of staff and security team who help Frank do his bidding.

Essentially we see Frank seek revenge on those who screwed him over in the past, in a bid to have as much power as possible, and Frank is not afraid to look for answers outside of the law.

This show will have you hanging on to the edge of your seat for the whole season but you do have to pay attention to this show. It has a very fast pace which adds a great ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ quality.

Kevin Spacey’s amazing performance as the power hungry Frank has had a huge role in the show’s success with viewers, his character frequently breaks the fourth wall to talk to the audience and share his thoughts with them, which really breaks up all the intense scenes.

And the best thing is all four seasons are on Netflix so you can binge watch the whole lot!
