Sharon and I finished watching the first season of House of Cards. It is an adaptation of the BBC's mini-series of the same name and is based on the novel by Michael Hobbs. The series stars Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Kate Mara, and Corey Stoll in lead roles.
Set in present-day Washington, D.C., House of Cards is the story of Frank Underwood (Spacey), a Democrat from South Carolina's 5th congressional district and the House Majority Whip. After getting passed over for appointment as Secretary of State, Underwood decides to exact his revenge on those who betrayed him.
Both Sharon and I were surprised by the series and enjoyed it a lot!
