House of Cards

[SEA­SONS 1-4, NET­FLIX] STAR­RING KEVIN SPACEY, ROBIN WRIGHT AND MICHAEL KELLY.

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - ON SCREEN -

I know I know, I do like to bang on about House of Cards, and here I go again given the next in­cred­i­ble sea­son – the fifth – is fi­nally here! The rise of the Un­der­woods to the White House has been ad­dic­tively grip­ping enough with­out the newly elected Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion to add a whole new layer to pro­ceed­ings. With Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright re­turn­ing to their re­spec­tive roles of Pres­i­dent Frank Un­der­wood and First Lady Claire, this new sea­son will pick up from the stun­ning fi­nale of the last, the Un­der­woods hav­ing de­clared war on terror, their mo­tives, as ever, self-serv­ing. The writ­ing and the per­for­mances in this show sim­ply never fal­ter, each new sea­son re­mind­ing me why binge-watch­ing was in­vented! Play catch up, and don’t miss it.
