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

Trivia

In 2015, Missouri State Auditor Tom Schweich launched his campaign to become Missouri's Republican gubernatorial candidate with a speech exposing what he characterized as corruption among the state's Republican Party establishment. That establishment responded with a subtle and not-so-subtle smear campaign against Schweich; tactics included spreading the (incorrect) rumor that Schweich was Jewish and airing an advertisement in the style of "House of Cards," complete with narration by a southern-accented Kevin Spacey sound-alike that smeared Schweich's character, called him "a weak candidate for governor," and sneered that "he could be easily confused for the deputy sheriff of Mayberry." Not long after this smear campaign started, Schweich committed suicide by self-inflicted gunshot. After Schweich's suicide, his campaign's media director, Robert "Spence" Jackson, again denounced the corruption in the state Republican Party that he said was partly to blame for Schweich's death; about a month after that, Jackson also committed suicide.

Francis Underwood: There are two kinds of pain. The sort of pain that makes you strong, or useless pain. The sort of pain that's only suffering. I have no patience for useless things.

An American Twist on a British Classic
1 February 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When I thought about Francis Urquhart of the original House of Cards series, I could not help but imagine Kevin Spacey in a way that was similar but a role of his own making. Spacey's role of Francis Underwood, in Netflix's original series, is nothing short of a tour de force. The convenience of being able to watch the whole season right away is also something to mention as a new, fresh and exciting method of television excellence. No longer do we have to wait and be fed slowly the episodes as we wonder what might happen and find ourselves somewhat disappointed -- now we can be swept away. And that's exactly what will happen to you when you sit down to watch this. 13/10.
