House of Cards - Season 2 product reviews

Masterful, beguiling and charismatic, Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his equally ambitious wife Claire (Robin Wright) continue their ruthless rise to power in Season 2 of "House of Cards".

Behind the curtain of power, sex, ambition, love, greed and corruption in modern Washington D.C. the Underwood's must battle threats past and present to avoid losing everything. As new alliances form and old ones succumb to deception and betrayal, they will stop at nothing to ensure their ascendancy.

I have heard about this series, but had not ever seen any of it. So it was going to be a true test of the series, to truly captivate me without any prior background knowledge. And along those lines, there were some parts that I did not understand the history of, but had to take at face value that the history was now irrelevant.

This is one of those series that makes you question politics in general. With the highlighting of "political misconduct" in current events lately, it is easy to sometimes think of it as a consequence of something trivial; an unintentional task. But House of Cards delves into the lines that politicians will often cross in order to look after their own interests, or to destroy others. It really made me question the validity of every negative thing that has come up in real-life politics. And that is the mark of a truly great show.

With regards to the actual show, they are shot in sets of two, with a different director taking on each duo of episodes. It allows the series to come across as more of a feature than individual episodes. So while it flows towards the climax at the end of the season, each episode still covers its own little fiasco, that must be overcome, allowing it to be enjoyed as either a standalone, or a feature.

It features some coarse language, nudity, and implications of other sexual acts, so it is recommended for a mature audience. With approximately 9 hours of the series along with special features, the fact that I watched it all in under two days, tells you of the quality of the show. It keeps the interest, when the majority of characters are "bad"; you never know what is going to happen next.
