Did You Know?


(at around 29 mins) Frank and Freddy are discussing over the slaying of the pigs, Freddy hitting the table while he speaks was unscripted, actor Reg E. Cathey improvised and thought it'll help settle the mood better, therefore Kevin Spacey's reaction was fully natural. See more »


When Zoe is looking for Frank on the Cathedral Heights metro platform, a station list is seen on the wall across the tracks. It clearly lists the stations of the Baltimore Metro, starting with Johns Hopkins Hospital on the left, then Shot Tower, etc. They added signage for a fictitious Cathedral Heights station in DC, but neglected to correct the station list sign. The scene was clearly shot in the Baltimore Metro system, not DC. See more »

Just WOW

I cannot stop watching at it. It has some "imperfections" but nothing to be worry about. I didn't know about this series until I have been tell by a friend of mine living in US, and I just watch the first season in just 3 days, and now Im watching the second one. All characters has a very rich content, the power as a major price against the money and Frank character, just an amoral (not moral neither unmoral, just amoral) with a particular view of facts to take decisions... it blow my mind. I want more! please people keep doing this great series!

Thanks a lot!
