House of Cards: everyone’s necessary evil

Frank Underwood

My new addiction is spelled by three words – House of Cards. Created by Beau Willimon, directed by David Fincher and promoted by the lead Kevin Spacey. This is a show I completely devoured in a week about a month ago, one bite at a time like Spacey’s Frank Underwood says. With Fincher’s hand and Willimon’s script it’s immaculetely executed with a sleek vision of what lies on top and below the surface of Washington’s Congress. You’ll forget there ever was a West Wing.┬áDon’t bother watching the trailer, check into the pilot instead or binge the entire show like I did. You won’t regret it.

”┬áThere are two kinds of pain. The sort of pain that makes you strong, or useless pain. The sort of pain that’s only suffering. I have no patience for useless things. “

– Underwood
