    Default House of Cards (Netflix original series)

    First Episode

    IMDB

    This is the new original series from Netflix. Kevin Spacey is in the lead role as Frank Underwood, a US Congressman from South Carolina.

    I'm nine episodes into the thirteen episode first season and it's very good so far. Pretty high production values and good acting. Has anyone else been watching this?

    Not original by any means, it is a "remake" and one doubts that it would be as good as the original as it was written with the British political system in mind.
    But then I would be somewhat biased being a Brit.
    Wonder how they are going to do "To play the King" is the U.S.A suddenly becoming a monarchy or gain a new style Head of State?

    Does it get better as it goes on? I couldn't get through the first episode.

    Good point about it being a remake. With the way the first season ends he'll be hard pressed to advance further, but they did a good job adapting it to American politics.

    Yeah, it picks up. The first two episodes really set up the rest of the season.

    Just a question, is this thread open to talk about the original series? I haven't seen it and so I don't know what happens. If it is, it'd be good to have the heads up so I can avoid the thread.

    I started it for the Netflix one, but I see no reason why not. I'm kind of interested in the British one now that I've seen this one.

    Well, I went ahead and watched House of Cards. It's leagues ahead of the American version and Francis Urquhart is far more ruthless and sinister and evil.

    Do you know if there's a place to watch online legally for an American?

    Proving a great watch so far. And that soundtrack is just so sexy.

    Not a clue. You could just buy the DVDs.
