'NOT A GREAT IDEA TO MESS WITH THE 'UNDERWOOD'S' - TO DO SO COULD PROVE FATAL'
on 20 July 2014
The continuing tale of Political -Power - Games.
'Frank Underwood' has manoeuvred his way to the office of 'U.S. Vice President.
Business Man 'Raymond Tusk' who has the ear of friend and President, 'Garrett
Walker' has recommended the appointment.
'Frank' sets out from the word go to drive a wedge between 'Tusk' and the President,
but will his efforts to do so come back and bite him at a later date.
Making an enemy of 'Frank' or becoming a threat could prove fatal as political colleague
alcoholic 'Peter Russo' didn't live long enough to understand.
Both 'Clair' and 'Francis' are not beyond having affairs, facts that could cause both issues,
for both 'Underwood's'
Manipulation and wheeler-dealing is a way of life for 'Frank' -wife 'Clair' has an equally
single minded approach with her business affairs.
Neither are high in the loyalty-stakes they simply use people to achieve their aims,' Frank'
has a team of foot soldiers to do his bidding led by 'Doug Stamper'
'Frank' has been playing political games to undermine supposed friend and President.
While political games are being played, 'Zoe Barnes' a former lover that 'Frank' has used
because of her connections to the 'Press' becomes another victim of the Vice presidents
fury, her boyfriend 'Lucas' also with the 'Press' believes 'Frank' is involved with two deaths,
are his investigations getting too Hot for Frank ?
There is so much going on can 'Frank' and 'Clair' stay ahead of the game, cosying up to
'Garrett' and wife 'Tricia' all a part of the overall plan.
Meanwhile 'Raymond Tusk' is doing all he can to get even with the manipulating Vice
President, a plan which includes publically exposing 'Clair's' indiscretions and laying
the seeds of doubt about 'Frank' in the Presidents mind.
Is the plan coming off the tracks for the 'Underwood's' or will they prevail ?
One thing is certain 'Frank' and 'Clair' do.....deserve each other.
This is a terrific political drama which is certainly compelling viewing.
Just hope the series continues.....'Kevin Spacey' is wickedly convincing as 'Francis
Underwood' ........This a must see TV series.
