    You will love these Democrats. Vicious and conniving to the core.

    I've heard great things about this show. Rachel Maddow just plugged it today at the end of her show. She appears in an upcoming episode, on the TV, being herself. She said that she can retire now: she's been on The Simpsons and now, House of Cards.

    I have amazon Prime. I think I can stream it.

    Oh so you are Irish then? That explains it :grinning:[​IMG]:peace:

    My husband likes to have a wee dram of Scotch as well (I think that is mother's milk for Scotsmen).

    3 and a half episodes to go to finish off season 2. Ruthless people. Most of them anyway.

    Dammit. Of everything, everything they've done -- I've gone along with it. But Season 2, chapter 11 -- they jumped a shark. And yes, it has to do with sex. They jumped a big horny shark. Disappointed.

    The Blacklist is back next Mon! Spader is wowza in that one (though the one playing his daughter--yeah, I know he said she wasn't, but PFFFT!--is pretty meh). HoC is a great show!

    Yeah, as the season unfolded the plot lines move too fast sometimes. The whole hubby thing seems like an after thought. But Spader is amazing in it...

    My husband is too. He's shocked I don't like it. I can't even put my finger on why I don't like it.

    I plan on giving it a try and starting the series this weekend. Did anyone else see the recent report that Robin Wright (who plays Claire Underwood on the show), said that when she was researching her role, a "senior person" in the Obama administration told her that reporters sleep with their sources, among other things?
