Ten days ago, Beau WillimonDavid Fincher, Kevin Spacey and Netflix hoped to change the future of television with "House of Cards," the first high-profile series to be produced by, and air exclusively on, the streaming platform. A remake of the late 1980s BBC miniseries (itself based on the book by Michael Dobbs), the 13-part first season of "House Of Cards" was adapted by "The Ides Of March" co-writer Beau Willimon who developed the series for Netflix. Executive-produced by Fincher, who also directed the first two episodes, with Spacey leading a cast that also includes Robin Wright, Corey Stoll, Kate Mara and many more. What's it about? Deceit, betrayals, duplicity, and political manuevering on Capitol Hill, centering on a ruthless congressman -- Democrat and U.S. Representative Francis J. Underwood (Kevin Spacey) -- who will stop at almost nothing to secure the top job in Washington, D.C. We've already reviewed the first two. »
