News & Interviews for House of Cards: Season 1
The video service's first original series was a lush, acid exploration of power in Washington.
The production values are lush, the pacing tight, the dialogue razor-sharp ("I love that woman," Underwood says of his wife at one point. "I love her more than sharks love blood"), the tone dark and delightfully nasty.
The production is gorgeous, the performances pristine. Nothing feels out of place, but nothing feels particularly vibrant, either.
Watch at whatever pace you'd like -- immediately. Given its quality, I think you'll be drinking it all in sooner rather than later.
The show is dryly witty in its depiction of constancy and fidelity on the Potomac.
Spacey vacillates between chilling and charming, breaking the fourth wall to speak directly, confidentially, to the camera.
And although it's not as consistently sharp as one might hope, there's a lot of intriguing elements spread about, which hopefully will blossom throughout the season.
Fincher stumbles in realizing the profession's 21st-century counterpart. Let's hope future national-desk visits avoid anything as cringe-inducing as the scene in which Zoe's editors marvel at a computer screen, amazed at the concept of page views.
The more elaborate the ruse, the better: hence the pleasure of Underwood's ascent, which plays out on the dramatic equivalent of a three-dimensional chessboard.
Audience Reviews for House of Cards: Season 1
Jan 07, 2021Smart, slow-burn and creative. House of cards starts off very strong, with a killer performance from Spacey and Mara.
Jan 04, 2021Absolutely brilliant, Kevin Spacey is the heart and soul of this. Despite the controversies, he is great performer
Dec 27, 2020House of Cards left me at an absolute loss of words. The bandaid of expectations for a political drama in the 2010's was ripped of quickly, with one of the strongest casts and perfromances I've seen in a TV show for a long time. Add in the masterful plot, use of suspense, and political commentary, and you have the formula for a great season, and excellent set up the rest of the seasons to come.
Nov 08, 2020House of Cards Season 1 in one Word is a Masterpiece because of it's Brilliant Performances ( especially from Kevin Spacey as Frank Underwood ), the Amazing Direction and Screenplay Writing and some really Realistic Scenes. This definitely is a Must Watch for every Filmmaker. You really notice the Style from David Fincher. RATING: 4,89
Oct 14, 2020What. A. Show. Though a little slow-paced, this suspenseful political thriller about revenge makes you root for the bad guy in the worst ways possible.
Sep 28, 2020There are short phases of the show that aren't great, but overall the story was engaging and I strongly enjoyed 80% of the episodes.
Sep 20, 2020A brilliant series that fell apart once the authors went beyond the source material.
May 12, 2020One of the Netflix Original shows which story is based on Frank underwood, a cunning dishonest manipulator tyrant politician believes in "Haunt or be Haunted". He only wants to be in power and to sustain it he can go beyond law, beyond humanity, beyond conscience and beyond every limit who says "if you don't like table is set then turn over the table". His story starts as a whip and got deceived by The new elected president, not to be chosen as "The secretary of State" then he started his journey to become "The President of United State of America" with his wife Claire underwood who is also ambitious lady and works as a team with her husband. His journey shows many aspects of politics like ruthless politics, masquerade politicians, their camoflauge nature and importantly "Give and Take Policy". Perfectly acted by Kevin Spacey and connects himself with audience that is also impressive. Perfect story, perfect acting. Ultimate show ever.
Apr 25, 2020Great acting, if you like drama, this is a good one.
Dec 20, 2019A fictional deep-dive into the world of political power struggles makes for a superbly engaging plot, and with robust acting performances - this show is a breath of fresh air and most definitely stands out in the world of political dramas.
