I haven’t been getting enough sleep this month because of our Netflix addictions. We watched Orange is the New Black and finished that in two nights and now we’re zooming through House of Cards.
About House of Cards:
Bad, for a greater good.
Three Emmy Award wins including David Fincher ("The Social Network") for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series and nine nominations including Outstanding Drama Series went to this acclaimed political thriller. Lead Actor nominee Kevin Spacey stars as ruthless, cunning Congressman Francis Underwood, who will stop at nothing to conquer the halls of power in Washington D.C. His secret weapon: his gorgeous, ambitious, and equally conniving wife Claire (Lead Actress nominee Robin Wright).
You’re pulled in right from the start with Kevin Spacey’s unnervingly bad character, he’s such a great actor and plays such a bad guy with deplorable moral and yet I can’t turn my eyes away. It’s like a train wreck you just can’t look away. It’s like that car accident on the highway that slows down traffic to a halt and you’re cursing as you drive up to it but you can’t help and look as you drive by. That’s how House of Cards works. The episode we watched last night where he kills another congressman and makes it look like a suicide, I was like did he really just do that? Yep, he did and that’s what brought his wife back to him. His wife that had been staying in another man’s apartment for the best few weeks. They seem to have a great relationship and yet they use each other as much as they use everyone else in DC.
Netflix really knows how to make TV good. I hope we don’t have to wait too long for another season. I mean yes we’re just starting House of Cards Season two but I know we’ll be through with it within another week. I really do love Netflix.
