House of Cards [Netflix]


Since last year I have a subscription on Netflix.
When I saw the lists with documentaries, movies and series I don’t where I start watching.
But since I started with a couple of movies and series I was ready to see (almost) everything that Netflix offers.
So if you have a subscription on Netflix and you don’t know where to start I will help you.

Last month Netflix released the third season of her first original series.
House of Cards is one of the biggest series that Netflix released since the start of the video on demand service.

If you read all the comments about the House of Cards it’s also the most beloved series of Netflix.

I heard from this series since I’ve a subscription to Netflix. But I never start to watch this series because normally politics isn’t on my list of interest.
But at the end of February they released season 3 and I thought I can give it a try and now I’m hooked at the series.
It’s an adaptation of the BBC’s mini-series of the same name and is based on the novel by Michael Dobbs.


Because they made the series in a new and fresh way one of the things that I really like is how Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) talks to the camera to make it clear the context of the scene and how he thinks. You get a little sneak peek of his thoughts so you can understand his moves to get something done.
Frank would like to have arranged different rules, and other political things.
The thing that I really like is that he used unusual ways to get it done.

Story line:
Majority House Whip Francis Underwood takes you on a long journey as he exacts his vengeance on those he feels wronged him – that is, his own cabinet members including the President of the United States himself.
Dashing, cunning, methodical and vicious, Frank Underwood along with his equally manipulative yet ambiguous wife, Claire take Washington by storm through climbing the hierarchical ladder to power in this Americanized recreation of the BBC series of the same name.

Do you watch this series and what do you really like about it.
And if you tried to watch it and don’t like let me know what you don’t like.
