News & Interviews for House of Cards: Season 2
Kevin Spacey remains a delightful Southern-accented villain as Frank Underwood.
House of Cards remains an absorbing tale of high-level government dysfunction populated by double-dealers who hold their aces under the table.
Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey) returns for another round of deception, manipulation and BBQ ribs in the second season of House of Cards, the delicious political thriller that has already changed television.
Harping on the outlandish and silly mechanics of House of Cards' political plots feels like taking it in the wrong spirit.
[It] depicts D.C. politics as a mess of personal vendettas... and then along comes Frank with his brisk, conscience-free willingness to take on what's needed to get things done -- he may be a ruthless sociopath, but there's something to admire there.
Audience Reviews for House of Cards: Season 2
Season 2 picked up where season 1 left off directly. There are more shocking plot twists and exaggerations of characters, but I found this new change captivating, though the plot seemed weak and the characters are still infuriating, I embrace the battle between the jounalists and the corrupt politicians like Underwood himself.
Follows closely the formula of Season 1, with it's intricate plot and carefully placed dialogue, with an even meaner, crueler and darker story to tell that follows closely the events that preceded it. If you can stomach it, it will reward you immensely.
