    Anyone watching this one? The first season is crazy good. Watch the very first episode and I guarantee you will want to keep watching. Your mind is going to be, "WTH did I just see, and what will he do next?"

    Second season starts February 14th.

    I watched the first season and am eagerly awaiting the second. I just love the interaction between Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright but the whole show is outstanding, IMO. I watched the original British series a few years ago; it, too, was excellent.

    I've not watched the British version, but Kevin hooked me immediately. Like the first minute of the first show! Their marriage is an interesting arrangement for sure.

    I love how Kevin breaks the 4th wall to talk to the audience or give us a roll of the eyes. It's just a great series.

    Robin Wright won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Claire Underwood. I am currently re-watching the whole first season so I can be ready for the start of Deux. Love this show.

    For all of you political wranglers out there, you might tune into it. It's fantastic.

    To me, their relationship is very much a business type thing, although I do think there is love there. It sort of reminds me of a Bill and Hillary sort of arrangement. Although Claire is much hotter. I think both pairings could be ruthless if it suited their goals.

    Okay, you guys are missing one of THE best series on TV. It's a Netflix original so get Netflix just so you can see it! I just watched the first episode of Season 2 and it is OFF THE HOOK! I think I can say this is one of my favorite series on TV ever.

    @Tery, @hossenpepper, @Shasta, @DiO'Bolic, @Lepplady, @Moderator and every other person who loves to get into that political stuff -- you will LOVE this show. But start at the beginning, Season I. As I stated earlier, the first 2 minutes of the first episode will feed into every single conspiracy theory you've ever had about someone serving as a leader in our nation's capitol because if Kevin Spacey a.k.a. Frank Underwood can do that, he will do anything. And he does.

    LOL, this was actually my next show to watch. I just finished up the first season of The Blacklist and was perusing for my next one. This just solidifies it for me.

    And DJ, don't think I didn't notice you ignoring me extolling your virtues as a beautiful woman the other day. Just take the compliments and blush and smile, OK? :p

    You charmer you. You will LOVE this show Hoss. Absolutely love it. Spacey breaks the 4th wall to talk to us about things and it is a fantastic way to pull you in to all the intrigue. Makes you part of the "team." lol. Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks, I’ve heard a lot of good things about it... and I do subscribe to Netflix. But the real US politics is already sooooo very entertaining and cutthroat. I’m coming down with a cold after battling the elements the last two days. Perhaps I’ll give the show a try over the weekend while I’m laid up with my chicken soup and Irish Mist. And I've just finished all the reruns of Gilligan's Island so I need to fill my quota of deep material with something. :)

    Is that when you pour whiskey over the top of a hot radiator?

    oh no, this is much more sinister. The twists and turns and political bull crap is so wild. You sit there and think, "No way," and then turn around and think, "Maybe?" I hope you feel better. Let me know what your thoughts are on it.

    LOL. Why waste good whiskey? I usually just pee in the radiator in emergencies. Try some on the rocks... Mother's milk for us Irishmen.
