Noticed that GTAF didn't have a proper House of Cards thread (other than the older European version of HoC).
 
For me, House of Cards is my favorite TV series.
 
For those unaware, House of Cards partakes Kevin Spacey playing as Frank Underwood, a ruthless United States Congressman who uses extreme and ruthless levels of politics to rise to power within the White House. 
 
Check below for a trailer to House of Cards and a few GIFs.

Francis J. Underwood is a bad man.

Haven't had a interest in a show since the finale of Breaking Bad. I'm not even into politics and I find this show incredibly fascinating.

But as with Walter White, he's a bad man that we all love.

Great show, really takes the original and runs with it in a different setting.  Massively enjoyable.

 

Best thing?  The whole series arrives at once on Netflix, so you can watch two or three in an evening if you feel like it.

 

Spacey is awesome.  So is Robin Wright.

Those of us who have not watched the House of Cards or the new "Dr. Who" better catch up on Netlix in the next week or so because there is a good chance the Netflix will be removing it from the lineup,The BBC has been having issues working out a contract

Definitely one of my favourite current running TV shows right now, the quality of it is right up there with Game of Thrones, Fargo and True Detective.

 

Also is season three going to be the last season?

It hasn't been announced that Season Three is the last and it wouldn't make much sense if it were, House of Cards is absolutely racking in awards and its Netflix's biggest runner.

Yeah I guess so, especially after Kevin Spacey's win. I swear I read it somewhere though.

It'd make sense if they did it right. I'm sure if you told someone this show is about a congressman who became vice-president and then president, within' a couple months, they'd tell you that wouldn't make sense.

I'm not referring to it being done right in terms of story, I'm saying that it will keep on going because Netflix doesn't want to just stop all of the money and attention they are getting from House of Cards.

Frank Underwoods rise to presidency was also quite a bit over a few months. I don't have an exact timeline but "year" and "years" have been referenced periodically.

Really looking forward to the next season, can't wait. Anyway, major spoilers down below so don't read if you haven't finished season 2.

 

I wonder if Doug died after Rachel hit him with the rock or if something happened afterwords. Of course, this trailer doesn't tell us exactly that he's dead, but we haven't seen him in the trailer and Frank was delivering flowers at a grave yard, so I assume that was for Doug.

 

I have a strange suspicion that Doug possibly fell into a coma or something and Frank somehow got him killed. He'd probably do this because he needs to tie up loose ends. I mean, he's finally gotten his presidency and now the guy who he just gave his third and final chance to went and screwed up again. Doug knows information that could have Frank impeached and Frank thinks Doug is the only person left who knows about the murder of Peter and Zoe.

 

Of course Doug dying means Underwood has no idea that Rachel and the hacker is on the loose and I wouldn't be surprised if that's a major plot point in season 3 as we've already seen the hacker in the trailer.

Season 2 spoilers below:




I'm pretty sure Doug is already dead. In the last episode, he can be seen laying with his eyes open with an extremely pale face so I don't think its looking too good for him but I do hope he's alive as he is a great character.

As for the hacker, he's shown as an official FBI employee in the new trailer so I think that he got the deal that he was wanting.

Just finished binge-watching season 1 and 2 of this show... Holy sh*t! I havent been excited for a show since breaking bad!

That second to last episode with Meechum and the Underwoods and what happened after Meechum's hand injury threw me off a lot tho. I understand that Meechum is, at this point, the only person they trust, but damn! what a way to show it :blink:

Just finished watching season 1.

 

I'll admit I was a bit confused in the first few episodes of the politics and what was really going on but towards the end of the season it really picked up and I was hooked. Especially as the journalists start to unravel what's been going on with Frank Underwood.

 

Going to move onto season 2 soon.

Anyone else notice that over time, Frank Underwood's Texas accent goes away more and more. In season 1, it was really noticeable but in Season 2 you can't really tell.

Indeed it did. I was so shocked and wanted to scream. How are they going to start the season with such a huge bombshell like that.

 

On episode 4 now.

This has to be one of the best well written tv shows I've ever watched and I almost didn't give it a chance. I watched the first episode and was like okay that sucked. Good thing I watched the 2nd one, I got hooked.

Bought the first season about a week ago, bought the second yesterday, at first I was mainly watching it just for Kevin Spacey but now I'm hooked on the show as a whole, really loving it. It's great watching a show with such a delightfully dark, sinister villain protagonist like Underwood.

Finished season 2. Looks like the Underwoods got what they wanted.

Spoiler

 

Brilliant season overall. Looking forward to see what season 3 brings.

Some guy on Reddit says he has all of the episodes opened in tabs and he's currently looking for a way to record them, hopefully he manages to do it. Not all of the episodes got leaked though, only the first 10, the last 3 weren't up. It kinda looks like they did it intentionally actually, but I'm not sure on that.

I'm starting to think this'll be the last season, I can't imagine how they'll continue if Frank and Claire can't even get along.

Yes but Frank still has to invade Russia then gradually take over the planet, then start the interstellar empire and eventually become god.

I'm thinking that there is at least one more season they can do. It looks like in this season Frank is running for the 2016 election and my guess is that at the end of this season, he'll win and the next season will follow his remaining time with the presidency.
