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
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
