I'm restarting season 1

There just Isn't anything else that can touch this show

And.. I wasn't paying very close attention at first

Everything about the show is near perfect

Even small 2 second hits have such deep meaning

Take season one episode one... After the inauguration, there is a 2 second clip of a street spewed with garbage, with workers cleaning it up, taking a shot at Obama and his obamaunists and followers who trashed DC during the inauguration


There isn't a single thing that is not thought about and considered from every angle

With all 13 episodes out at once, it's hard to find the nuances and all the little beautiful details...

There is an absolutely epic quote every 5-10 mins...


House of cards > game of thrones

I didn't think I could find a show that was better than game of thrones... But house of cards is near perfect... Serious tv drama, that has a South Park styled level of audacity, in that it doesn't care who they lampoon, and they will take on anything...

2 seasons in and he worked his way up from the congress to president... He doesn't have anywhere further to go up? Now everyone is going to snipe at him...
I expect season 3 to be a bloodbath... Figuratively in the mid terms, and possibly literally as frank looks to take out all threats to his power



Makes waking dead seems like a B-movie

I hope game of thrones holds up better


Also
Spoiler


Also...
Pretty much everything has a connection to a real world story... Every charecter has a real life inspiration or multiple characters out into one..

There is something about that deep level of layering between fact, fiction, and satire... That is much more powerful than some mystical fantasy world with dragons, zombies and magic

He is still dealing with tusk.

I think in the beginning of the next season he will show us how to deal with "resistance" in the congress (from PotUS perspective).

You got rachel too, I can't wait how to see he deal with that.
That hacker knows too much.


The thing about freddy, he was willing to stand by his side until claire made him "come into sense", those two are just scary as hell.

I hope we are done with Tusk. Lucas should've killed himself. Doug went out so damn dumb. I thought she didn't hit him enough to kill him, she did apparently. Season 2 IMO had too much going on at times.

What If Frank Underwood Were the Los Angeles GM?

 

[Frank sits in his office.]

Secretary: Sir. LaMarcus Aldridge is here.

Underwood: Send him in.

[LaMarcus enters.]

Underwood: LaMarcus, have a seat. How’s Terry doin’? Oh, and Robin, does he still have that hair? My wife says it looks like the branches of a sycamore tree.

Aldridge: Hi, Frank. I only agreed to this because my agent owed you one. You have 10 minutes.

Underwood: All right. You’re a busy man, and I want to respect your time. Oh … drink?

Aldridge: No thanks.

Underwood: What if I told you there was a championship in store for you. Right here. Right now. All you have to do is take it.

Aldridge: I’m already in a good situation, Frank.

Underwood: That’s right. It’s a good situation. At best, you’ll be on your way to a conference finals for the next three years, remaining mildly relevant in a so-so market. But in L.A. … well,  you could be in a top-of-the-world situation — like a guppy at a water park.

Aldridge: Let’s pretend that I’m mildly interested, which I’m not. You couldn’t afford me with Kobe’s massive contract.

Underwood: Let’s just say, Kobe might be out the door soon.

Aldridge: No way.  Kobe wouldn’t walk out.

Underwood: You’re right. Kobe wouldn’t walk … out.

Aldridge: This is making me uneasy, and I need to head back. Thanks but no thanks for me.

[LaMarcus begins to walk away.]

Underwood: See you in New Orleans.

[LaMarcus turns.]

Aldridge: New Orleans?

Underwood: A little bird told me you might be on your way to the Big Easy.

Aldridge: Right.

Underwood: I’m being serious. Now, I could get in real trouble for this, but I hear Portland wants Anthony Davis and would send anything to get him. That includes you, LaMarcus. I’m just trying to be your friend here.

Aldridge: Whatever, Frank.

[LaMarcus leaves.]

Underwood [to camera]: LaMarcus thinks he’s got it made in the shade with raspberry lemonade on his cute little team. But this boy is living in the desert and that shade is about to turn into a frozen coffin. God bless America.

♦♦♦

[Frank picks up the phone. It’s Flip Saunders.]

Underwood: Hey, Flip … You know, I was just thinking about you, and I thought I’d say hello. Say, how’s Kevin Love doing? Ha ha. No … I know we don’t have anything to offer for him. We just spent some time together in Charleston and I wanted to check in on my new friend. You tell Kevin I called, OK? Take care.

There's gold and it's haunting and haunting; it's luring me on as of old; Yet it isn't the gold that I'm wanting So much as just finding the gold; It's the great, big, broad land 'way up yonder, It's the forest where silence has lease; It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder, It's the stillness that fills me with peace.

IMO House of Cards S2 was better than BB final season. True Detective S1 was better than both. IMO
