All of you will be aware that I have been waiting with bated breath for the return of House of Cards. Scratch that: I have been waiting with a fervour akin to a tween awaiting One Direction’s next album. This is my favourite show on TV and, frankly, is in the gold medal contest for my favourite TV show ever (with the West Wing).
I will not act as a spoiler for anyone who has not seen episode 1 yet. Suffice it to say I was blown away by the season opener. The twists and turns of this 50 minutes of television left me glued to my seat and demanding more!
The lead characters have suddenly gotten darker with Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood taking on more and more of a Lady MacBeth like quality with each minute of the episode. I did not think Frank Underwood could become more devious and threatening but I was proven disastrously wrong!
The trailer for the second episode has me intrigued for what is next to come: I know exactly where I will be next Saturday night when it comes available on Australian TV. Until then, I will again be avoiding spoilers like the plague.
If you have not watched House of Cards before, stop what you are doing and down load the first season and then lock yourself away to watch it full before you download this episode: you will not be disappointed!
