Excellent adaptation from the brilliant original BBC series starring Ian Richardson as Conservative Chief Whip (& Member of Parliament) Francis Urquhart. The original series was brilliant enough, but the American adaptation is just as good as the original, which is unusual, for usually American adaptations of British TV series usually aren't quite as good (although there are exceptions). On the plus side the US version has a bigger budget and therefore a larger cast, not to mention the outstanding, completely original yet faithful Americanized script adapted from the UK original. One cannot fairly compare Francis Urquhart to Francis Underwood for they are two different characters and brilliant in their own way, the only (minor) drawbacks for me in Spacey's performance is his sometimes inconsistent southern drawl and the fact that Spacey doesn't really do 'evil-guy with decades of evil experience' 100% convincingly (but 90% is good enough), needless to say his performance is outstanding and you can tell all the high caliber cast are having a ball and love the material. The US version seems slightly a bit darker too, but that maybe because the types of events portrayed seem more far fetched in a UK context, whereas the same types of events in the US version are actually more believable, and so are more disturbing.

Dammit, why did I have to watch this show that fast. I can't wait for the 3d season. Haven't seen a tv-series as good as this since Breaking Bad. Kevin Spacey at his best. 10/10!

Just binged on season two, and all I can is: Holy Crap! This entire season was brilliant. With each episode, well acted and even more beautifully scripted than the last, Spacey and Wright are remarkable as a modern lord and lady Macbeth. I just can't believe I have to wait a whole year for season 3.

Season 2 is projected to be released in Early 2014. I love the way Kevin Spacey put this series out (All 13 episodes at once) watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0ukYf_xvgc in his reasoning on doing so. the TL:DR - Kevin didn't want to make a pilot episode for the networks, the networks turned them down.

Also: The 1990 BBC series of 'House of Cards' was followed by two other series (or season's): 'To Play the King' then 'The Final Cut'. The entire series was adapted from a novel written by Michael Dobbs, a former Chief of Staff at Conservative Party headquarters.

I have watched the entire series 3 times, over a period of time. One word, AMAZING! this is better than 90% of other TV shows & is very original. I'm eagerly awaiting for the release of season 3. Lets see where Frank Underwood takes us in his presidency!

Thank you uploaders. This is a superlative series. Spacey, perfect choice for the role, is engaging and calculating in equal measure and Wright, another perfect choice, plays his cold and ambitious wife. Story and script are intelligent, acting throughout solid, direction perfect. Every episode pushes the story along nicely, no fillers or time wasters. My only criticism is the muted tone, it's heavy handed in suggesting Washington is a humourless place, but maybe that's the idea. One of the best things on the, can't say telly, internet. highly recommended.

Awesome! Spacey as usual, does not disappoint. Robin Wright is delicious as his wife and partner in ambition and revenge. This isn't just about a ruthless rise to power. Spacey's character, Underwood, is just a more clever, more merciless and less hypocritical politician than those around him. The character of Zoe Barnes, played by Kate Mara, as the young reporter. She is ballsy, ambitious and a bit ruthless herself. While she retains the innocence of character, she gives the impression she thinks she knows what she is doing. Unfortunately she is way over her head. This is absolutely an incredibly good watch!!

Great show. Spacey always plays a wonderful antihero straddling the line of being an out-and-out villain. The reason why this politico-show works better than say Starz's recently cancelled "Boss" (with Kelsey Grammer as a ruthless Chicago mayor) is that it's not as convoluted by the external drama of the supporting cast and instead clearly focuses on the ambitions and methods of vengeance of Spacey's congressman Underwood and allows the supportive cast to color his story. Above all, it is a believably scary account of the kind of deviousness that could very well be happening inside the beltway right now. Hopefully the rest of the season will be quickly uploaded - a very impressive first scripted turnout by Netflix.

I really like the concept here in this series. Every episode revealed a bit of frank, and its great how he suddenly talks to the camera, sharing his intentions. taking viewers in his journey to become the most powerful man in the free world. I would really like to know more about his past and all the skeletons he is been hiding. really great cast. no wonder why Kevin Spacey is the producer too.

Frank and Claire are the modern day Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. The actors are all amazing. I do love Claire, especially. Robin Wright is the sexiest woman in the white house.

Love spacey in this, and I love it too because I believe this is how it is really done, your's, mine, our wants and needs come in a slow last to the power plays and money being shuffled around. It is like being a fly on the wall hearing and seeing what goes on behind closed doors. And I hope Claire gets what she wants, that's the least she deserves for playing 'the game' for her husband.5/5
