Frank at His Slimy Best
26 January 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Frank Underwood finds himself in his home town in South Carolina. A young woman who was texting is killed when she runs into a water tower, an historical site, whose maintenance Frank supported. His rival wants the family to sue and Frank is given the task of trying to dissuade them. He is a man who speaks out of both sides of his mouth and he always manages to land on his feet. We get to see our nasty protagonist in his own milieu, schmoozing and manipulating. He is determined to get the funding for his education bill. Meanwhile, Zoe oversteps her bounds and puts herself under Frank's magnifying glass. This may prove interesting in the future. She talks to the people at her newspaper after being warned not to betray sources, getting caught up in her ambition.
