House of Cards Satur­day, 8.30pm, Show­case

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

This has to be one of the best, if not the best, se­ries around at the mo­ment. Kevin Spacey as Fran­cis Underwood is pos­i­tively evil in his pur­suit of the top job at the White House. He lets noth­ing stand in his way. Ly­ing, cheat­ing, a mur­der or two, it all comes nat­u­rally to this con­niv­ing VP. His su­per cool wife, Claire (Robin Wright), isn’t much bet­ter. She sees grab­bing ev­ery op­por­tu­nity and twist­ing it to their ad­van­tage as all part of the game. Here in chap­ter 19, Fran­cis and his achilles heel Ray­mond Tusk, the bil­lion­aire busi­ness­man and pres­i­dent’s pal, end their colourful al­liance.
