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.

3rd season is a big failure
5 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Unexpexted failure all of the 3rd season. Totally based on feelings that never appear before. Surprise how easily one of the best serials become total bullshit. In case of Russian president - OK, no question let him be like this, but sensitivity of main characters and decisions made not based on politics but on human being - its out of question in political world. Very bad, and very upset. Gay scene between president and a writer ?? Oh please. Senator changed mind due to children ? Nightmare. President wife sleeping in a Russian jail(yeah it looks like 3 star hotel) and speaking hours with some delusional idiot who made suicide after ? Looks like an idiot makes scenario. Not sure about waiting for season 4.
