Regarded as one of the best political dramas in the last decade, right next to the West Wing, House of Cards is more than a simple game of power in the complicated wiring of the American Senate, but a glimpse in the making of laws and nominations.

Kevin Spacey plays U.S representative Francis J. “Frank” Underwood which also narrates the whole story. He is the “Player” of the whole political madness, twisting and turning webs in order to get his hands on power. Robin Wright is Claire Underwood, a strong, elegant and powerful woman that knows exactly what do and say when things go sour. She is responsible for Clear Water Initiative, a non-profit organisation that tries to make the world a better place. Kate Mara plays Zoe Barnes, a beautiful and ambitious reporter for The Washington Herald and afterwards Slugline, which never stops hunting the next big story, even though that gets her in Frank’s bed. These three characters are the main reason to watch and take in the whole story. The first season is breathe-taking, emphasising on political intrigue, plots, betrayals and survival techniques in a place where nobody sleeps: US Senate.
