Director David Fincher stated that every main cast member was their first choice. In the first read through, he said "I want everybody here to know that you represent our first choice - each actor here represents our first choice for these characters. So do not fuck this up." See more »
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.

This is one of the best shows; excellent story, good script, exceptional acting by everyone, and good cinematography. The fifth season was a bit slow, but, what's disappointing is Spacey's departure (removal, rather) from the show. No matter how good the others were, Spacey is what made this show perfect. Without him, there is no way the show can survive. The series has ended for me.
