Storyline

Majority House Whip Francis Underwood takes you on a long journey as he exacts his vengeance on those he feels wronged him - that is, his own cabinet members including the President of the United States himself. Dashing, cunning, methodical and vicious, Frank Underwood along with his equally manipulative yet ambiguous wife, Claire take Washington by storm through climbing the hierarchical ladder to power in this Americanized recreation of the BBC series of the same name. Written by Jacob Oberfrank

Great, great, great
1 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent effort by Fincher and Netflix, and helped reestablished some long waning confidence I've been having in the modern movie/TV studios model. They have finally given us what we want, good shows without forcing loud, obnoxious commercials down our throat, and at a reliable price. The real question is, is it sustainable? I think it is, but we'll have to wait and see. I was really excited to find out about this show and yet surprised that I hadn't found out about it sooner. Netflix hardly did any marketing on this series, and as a Netflix subscriber, I never came across it on their site or elsewhere. I only found out about this reading through David Fincher's IMDb page looking to find what his next project would be. Today is the first day the series is available, and there are banner ads on websites like the NY Times, but wow, I can't believe they didn't try to build up more buzz than this. Well, with a new revolutionary series model, I guess Netflix determined they also need a new marketing model as well. I can't wait to see the rest of season 1, but am also looking forward to more offerings from Netflix. Finally, a party just for the viewers and the creators, but without those annoying middle mad men.
