House of Cards Season 2
Netflix , TV Show Review / December 31, 2014

Only a few days ago I blogged about House of Cards Season 1 here and just today I finished Season 2. Season 2 is considered to be darker than the first and I have to agree with that.

After he is passed over for an important position, he decides to plan a revenge that will get him in a place of power in the end. He is assisted by his wife Claire Underwood (played by Robin Wright). She is the head of a organization called CWI (Clear Water Initiative). The series is primarily about ruthless pragmatism, manipulation, power, and doing bad things for the greater good. To get where he wants to go Frank doesn’t hold back and is not afraid to hurt or even kill people to get what he wants. He uses everyone and everything, sometimes even without them…
