This review is from: House Of Cards - Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
A sharp, American, political drama that is as good as it gets.
Kevin Spacey is chillingly brilliant as the man who wants to be President at any price.
This includes blackmail, theft, deception, duplicity and even murder.
The twists are clever and you do not see the outcome until it has arrived.
This is based upon the U.K. version of the 1990's with the same writer involved in both.
I hate to say this, but this version is better than the U.K. show which is a rare achievement.
Thankfully Michael Dobbs (Writer of the 1990 series) kept in the little asides where Spacey turns directly to camera and narrates what he is thinking.
In short this is like a spicy, Vindaloo version of the West Wing, there is even a little sex and dark humour as well.
if you have not seen this you are in for a treat, but make certain you have seen the first series before this one.
Series two is better than One, i can't wait for the third season. Great Series
