Kevin Spacey is so good in roles where he can have fun like this.
 
2013-12-13 08:20:07 AM  
At least they're not British.

I was loving this show in the first season until the last couple of episodes -- this trailer gives me hope for the second season though.

Do we get to "see" anymore of Kate Mara?

Bs, the oil representative is black. He was practically the only guy in control of spacey last year

Spacey is my fictional congressman

What specifically didn't you like? I thought seeing his plan come together was amazing.

Maybe you'll see alot of her.

You can say the same thing about Game of Thrones, and a myriad of other shows. Rich white people trying to top each other is nothing new.

If you don't like it, don't watch it subtard.

In a related note, when is the next season of "Orange is the new black" is coming out?

I know arrested development is more popular, but that is probably the one I liked least among netflix originals (I liked it, but not as much as the other two).

I first read that as "House of Representatives".

One of the things I loved the most when I first started watching the show was that it was believable...it was just the wheelings and dealings of a somewhat sleazy politician.  When I realized what his plan was I had two major problems with it: how many different things had to go impossibly right for it to work, and how ridiculous the goal of the plan was.

I mean honestly, convincing a VP to step down and getting himself named as replacement?

I want to know what happens with the nude pictures plot thread.

Remember? He took explicit pics of that reporter chick. When is he going to leak them?

It's based on a British import which was based on a book that was based on Richard III.

I see so much potential with that. And what if our tech savvy blogger is the one to use these to her advantage? Someone would hack his phone, leak them, and the media would be all "Right, nude Washington blogger... what were they doing on his phone though?"

So the question is not whether he's going to have an Anthony Weiner story line but rather how well does he show future politicians how not to Weiner it up?

To be fair, it seemed to me that he got the idea after seeing that the VP is not content. Once you figure that much as given, rest are not too impossible. But the execution of the series made it more believable than it could be in real life.

Yeah, this Fark headline basically describes 75% of all television, and 100% of all soap operas.

I enjoyed the Brit version quite a bit, but I can see why some Americans might not.  UK political memes, etc. are rather different from American ones.

What?  You mean 99.9% of homicides in New York aren't committed by wealthy, moderately attractive white people?  Duh-duhn!

Direct function of trying to adapt a Parliamentary storyline to the American govt. I thought it was pretty damn implausible too, but I'm not sure if I could have done any better. I choose to let it slide because holy fark that show is awesome.

I wasn't aware of the Richard III angle. That changes my perspective on the last episode of Season 1, which had seemed implausible to me.

I haven't seen the Brit version of House of Cards, but I had no problem following the original version of State of Play. It was very good (great cast!) and, to my thinking anyway, much better than the Crowe/Affleck film. The film compressed the story too much.

My primary problem was the arched acting/writing.

Remember, she is the union of the Steelers and Giants bloodlines.  Kate Mara is literally the queen of the Evil League of Evil.
