House of Cards Season 2 Out on Blu-Ray & DVD

Sponsored Post

“The first drops of blood have been spilt. The bullet grazed my cheek, but I haven’t fallen.”

Back-channelling, briefing against colleagues and undermining political rivals – today is an apt day for the release of House of Cards: Season 2 on Blu-ray & DVD. You can order your copy of the must-see television series starring Kevin Spacey here.

Did you think I’d forgotten you…

    I’ve got season one on Netflix. Haven’t indulged yet. Is it as good as the British version?

      No. You felt as if you were conspiring with Urquhart in some sense and he could be extremely funny/witty. With Underwood, as with so many US dramas, I eventually sat there half way through an episode and said, “You know what? I can’t stand any of these people” and I haven’t watched an episode since.

      I had the same thing with The Good Wife. It takes a while but you eventually realise they’re all arseholes and switch off.

        I’ll second that. I’ve seen series 1 & 2 of House of Cards, expecting some big revelatory moment at the end, and there isn’t. Just lots of sub plots stuck together with some ‘shock’ scenes to try and maintain interest, but it’s just a cobbled-together boring soap, basically.

          That s the Yanks for you .

          Spacey may be a very good professional but even he cannot perform miracles with the standard Hollywokd shit script with standardised telegraphed ending .

          It was good when first done with Washington Behind Closed Doors
          ( Robert Vaughan icily spinechilling as tbe President s “enfircer”) but that was 20 years ago and now the format has bee n done to death.

            You are right that WBCD was very good and Vaughn was excellent as *Haldeman*, but it was 1977, not 1994 – how time flies!

            I think we should be grateful for Spacey & Co’s professionalism in the current climate of absolute rubbish on TV.

            If only they’d remake “The Sandbaggers”, Roy Marsden, remember?

    For all the pontificating by Labour, the truth is the polls show most Labour voters would prefer the mass murderer Bliar over Miliband.

    I wonder how that makes Red Ed feel today?

    Look how sad my precious male partner Nicolas is. It’s all the fault of you horrid voters who won’t support him and vote for other parties. I hope that millions more people come to enrich your country and wipe you out of existence. RACISTS.

    I started working at the Palace not long after the British version of ‘House of cards’ had finished.
    Yes there were plenty of young women moist in the presence of old men but there were no old men like Urquhart.
    Plenty of David Brent types though.

    Before Gheedough turns off the comments, I’ll recommend the original series (House of Cards, To play the King, Final Hunt) with Ian Richardson.

    BTW, Now that Bertie “Dr House” Wooster has returned from the US with his low-taxed millions from the capitalist paradise, will he be making adverts telling us to vote Labour again, or just to use godawful men’s perfume?

Owen Paterson lifts the lid on the Green Blob:

“I received more death threats in a few months at Defra than I ever did as secretary of state for Northern Ireland.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
