FULL HOUSE!

HOUSE Of CARDS IS back with a bang FOR SEA­SON 5, and IT’S BE­ING La­belled the most DE­VI­OUS and EX­HIL­A­RAT­ING SE­RIES yet…

Look (UK) - - HEY BUSY GIRL -

Recap…

Frank and Claire Un­der­wood started the sea­son es­tranged, but a suc­ces­sion of dirty tricks be­tween the treach­er­ous hus­band and wife en­sured Claire be­came part of his cam­paign. A brush with death and a few hal­lu­ci­na­tions later and the Un­der­woods have got them­selves into hot wa­ter. Frank ended the se­ries mak­ing us shud­der in our boots, telling the Amer­i­can pub­lic: ‘We don’t sub­mit to ter­ror; we make the ter­ror.’

What’s to come…

the new sea­son re­lease date was an­nounced on trump’s in­au­gu­ra­tion day and we don’t want to say it (oh, go on then) but the sim­i­lar­i­ties are creepy. Even Robin Wright, who plays Claire (the mod­ern day Lady Mac­beth in a power suit) reck­ons they’re strug­gling for sto­ry­lines now that re­al­ity is stranger than fic­tion. this sea­son, we see Frank (Kevin Spacey) on the cam­paign trail for the pres­i­dency, where he’s plan­ning a dic­ta­tor­ship amid a cli­mate of para­noia.

Why we’re ex­cited…

No one schemes quite like slan­der­ous snakes the Un­der­woods and se­ries five prom­ises to be full of even more dou­ble-cross­ing, from the golden cou­ple of cold, cal­cu­lated treach­ery. We can’t wait for more sin­is­ter yet hi­lar­i­ous pon­der­ings from the man who told us he’d drown a lit­ter of kit­tens if it meant  min­utes of prime­time…
