MUR­DER ON THE CARDS

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Film Pick -

NOW, where were we when

House of Cards left us?

Oh – Kevin Spacey’s ruth­less con­gress­man Fran­cis “Frank” Un­der­wood (right) had been nom­i­nated for vice-pres­i­dent – and showed he wasn’t averse to ly­ing, black­mail­ing, ma­nip­u­lat­ing and in­dulging in a spot of mur­der to get there.

Mean­while, his cold-as-ice wife Claire ( Robin Wright) had proved a for­mi­da­ble part­ner, and an even more mer­ci­less op­po­nent – just ask her hus­band. Wright her­self has since picked up a Golden Globe for her role.

They’ve teased us with sea­son two trail­ers in which Spacey’s Frank says with rel­ish he is “one heart­beat away from the pres­i­dency and not a sin­gle vote cast in my name …. Democ­racy is so over­rated,” and prom­ises, chill­ingly “and the butch­ery be­gins”.

While it might have been lost in the all the fuss about bril­liant new Aus­tralian drama com­ing to our screens, diehard fans of the Net­flix hit se­ries can see it in Aus­tralia this Satur­day.

On Foxtel, it will be avail­able for show­case sub­scribers to binge-watch all 13 episodes via On De­mand, Foxtel Go and Foxtel Play from noon on Satur­day un­til mid­night on March 15.

Foxtel’s drama chan­nel SoHo will also simul­cast episode one on Satur­day at 8.30pm.
