Editorial Reviews

NOTE:This is disc two of a BD episodic series, with three Episodes ( Chapters 18, 19 and 20). Each Episode has either 8 or 9 chapters depending on if playing with or without the recap. There is a Play all and Play all with recaps available from the Main Menu. There are also Play Episode options. These always play with recap both from the Main Menu and from the Pop-up menu. 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 Underwoods 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.

Review of content. No spoilers.

I can't explain one of my main reasons for vastly preferring this over the first season without going into a pivotal plot point that occurs early on in the proceedings.

What I *can* say is that in season 2, Spacey settles down and grows into the role of Frank Underwood, playing the part in a far more subtle, more nuanced, less hammy way. Fans of his Machiavellian methods will be delighted to hear that he is still as devious and as ruthless as ever. Ditto his wife Claire (a compelling performance from Robin Wright).

All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable exploration of ambition at the heart of power in the company of the Underwoods who never once take their eyes off The Ultimate Prize. Unmissable.

And in the powerful and accomplished second season of Netflix's HOUSE OF CARDS (USA version), Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey), having doubled down and won every chance he gets, consolidates power along with his NGO-controlling wife Claire (Robin Wright). Francis, or Frank ("It's 'Francis' on buildings and 'Frank' on bumper stickers," he is joshed during Season 1) grows in finesse and power but as always has his eyes on the next prize. Some colorful new characters join the cast, among them Gerald ("Major Dad") McRaney as Raymond Tusk, a "sage" but manipulative multibillionaire from a Midwestern city, and Jimmi Simpson ("Liam McPoyle" on IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA) as Gavin Orsay, a quirky but ultra-advanced hacker in uneasy alliance with the FBI. The growing but, sadly, all-too-believable sense of menace from big power, big bucks, and domestic covert ops is lightened somewhat by Gavin's companion, a charming guinea pig named Cashew. (Note well, though, that cavy owners maintain the critters should not be kept in such confining cages.) Then Cashew comes under the foot of the Feds.

I didn't think it possible for Season 2 to outdo Season 1, but it does. Probably owing to enhanced budgeting, interior decor suffers far less from the sterile monotony often visible in the prior year, that sense of first-class hotel furniture accented with Restoration Hardware fixtures. Sometimes the fictional political events swirling around this show's main characters seem a little too strong for the circumstances -- Frank's boss the President has an eighteen percent approval rating, lower than that of any real modern President -- but it is as a character-driven saga that HOUSE OF CARDS excels.

I like very dark work and this series is certainly one of those. To some viewers too much darkness can push a show over the edge. I think it did that to my husband and my neighbor, who now seem dubious about seeing season 3. I, however, absolutely loved it. Keven Spacey's Francis Underwood is even more rapacious than in season one. He also is on a no holds barred effort to become the next president. Even Claire, his wife, has a few moments of doubt but not Francis. Kevin Spacey also takes this right up to the edge of satire but does not push it over. It is close especially since he has frequent asides to us the audience. Both Spacey and Robin Wright Penn do an outstanding acting job as the ultimate political couple. Both Claire and Francis go the extra mile this season in eliminating anyone standing in their way to the White House. The guy they seek to topple as President is a much better person than either of them but he is terribly weak as a President. I personally am looking forward to season 3.

I adored the F.U. cufflinks given to Francis. It's almost as if the character was given this name just so those cufflinks could be used in some future episode!

The only thing better than season one of this great series is season 2. I was totally floored to see that not only could this season keep up with the first one, it actually surpassed it. This is great television even though it is not really television. The acting in this series is unbelievable. Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright leads a stellar cast of dynamic performers. This season brings you into the seedy world of politics. It examines the top of the food chain. Those in power. It shows the lengths that the power hungry would go to keep that power. It examines and analyses power versus money. It is written in a way where even the most uneducated would start to understand Washington politics.l It is a scary season to watch because it is so believable. I could actually picture many of our elected officials having the character of Frank Underwood and the other fictional megalomaniacs in the series. If you want television that will leave you breathless, this is it. I can hardly wait for season 3.

I've been a big fan of the original House of Cards (UK series) when it arrived in 1990, and watched it many times since then. The USA version has grabbed me in big time (I'm a Brit thus seen both) it's modern and polished and Spacey is frankly fantastic in the lead role he steals the show almost.

House of Cards is slick and well cast and whilst clearly based on the original has it's own twists and theme.
Cast wise I like Spacey and his understated Francis J. "Frank" Underwood, devious and cunning, clever and manipulative. Robin Wright also does a very good job as his wife. I am quite happy with the cast overall.

Season two heats things up more, after the first season set the groundwork (some complained the first season was a bit slow partly down to I think laying out the characters more for viewers) Frank's lined himself up to be the Vice President..one step closer to his ultimate goal of grabbing the top job in the Oval office.

I won't ruin it with spoilers, but things do really come to a head with Zoe Barnes and Frank in a fairly dramatic way. The rest of the season shows Frank's continued cunning in destabilising an already weak President. Some complain it's a bit predictable plot wise, but then from day one we've known Frank is ambitious and wants power for himself. It's a slick production that's well directed and has some excellent performances even from supporting cast members, decent screenplay and script, good camera work and even the soundtrack delivers, nicely polished in every respect.

I'm quite happy to watch this, despite reservations initially how it would compare to the original 1990 series. They are different in feel and portrayal, I like both for what they offer viewers.
