House of Cards Season 1

You have found the best house of cards episode guide on the internet.  Why? because this is one of our favorite TV Shows, and if you need something, just comment below. We are quick to respond.


Currently 4 seasons long

The show chronicles the in and outs of Frank Underwood, who moves up the political chain from a US congressman to Vice President. The Story line is very well developed and the acting of Kevin Spacey and team is top notch. Right from the first episode (chapter) you are hooked. You can easily relate the machinations of the characters in this show to today’s political system. That was actually a bit of a problem because it does kind of weigh on you, yet is fascinating to see.

Our goal on the episode description is to give a person just enough information to know what a certain chapter is about without giving the story line away. We would love to hear back from you if we succeeded.

Our overall rating is 5 of 5 stars
