This is probably how I’m going to spend my weekend, even though I’ll also be headed to the Santa Barbara International Film Fest. The newly minted series is available, all episodes, on Netflix starting today. I will be writing up my thoughts on the wonderfully wicked series a bit later. EW’s Ken Tucker:
House of Cards finds Kevin Spacey being waspish, supercilious, and meanly clever — in other words, just the way we like him, and the way he’s been most effective in movies such asSwimming with Sharks, L.A. Confidential, The Usual Suspects, and (in a glorious early-career TV role) as Mel Profitt in Wiseguy. In House of Cards, he’s House Majority Whip Frank Underwood, passed over for Secretary of State and out for payback.
