House of Cards - Season 1-2 (Exclusive to Amazon.c&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Kevin Spacey
5.0 out of 5 stars 24 carat gold, 10 Aug 2014
The series grows on you. At the start you keep thinking "not as good as the British original", but Spacey's laconic delivery gains confidence and his cynicism is the equivalent of Ian Richardson's. The support characters are well conceived but the success of the series depends largely on a taut plot which chronicles Spacey's relentless drive to the top and sees him resort to ever more criminal activity to cover his tracks. At times it is difficult not to watch a whole run of episodes, but that would be a waste. This is so much better than normal tv fare that it is better to ration it. Highly recommended.

The magic continues. For a while you live in a totally different world. Despite the elements of fantasy, a credible storyline and good scriptwriting keep you guessing.

Stunning: really gripping stuff and a writer who gives you room to think. Acting and direction excellent. Thought only the Scandinavians could do this.
