House of Cards Season 2

December 31, 2014

HOCs2_PosterOnly 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. As we know Frank has become the Vice President of the USA, but he won’t stop there. His final goal is to be the President, but for that to happen the current President has to be removed from office, of course without implementing Frank.

So we see another season of playing people, breaking promised and doing things close to the thin line that is the law. Once again I have enjoyed this season very much and I can safely say anyone who liked Season 1 can see this one without thinking about it.

The complete Season2 premiered on February 14, 2014 and has been praised all over the world as a great show, a must see.

The second season of the American television drama series House of Cards began filming a set of 13 episodes on April 29, 2013 and concluded on November 8, occurring primarily in Baltimore. On December 4, 2013, Netflix announced that the season would be released in its entirety on February 14, 2014. Set in current day Washington DC, season 2 deals with topics such as entitlements, Chinese cyberespionage, anthrax scares, parliamentary procedure, and government shutdowns. It begins at the exact time that season 1 ended.

Francis spends most of the season as the newly appointed Vice President of the United States. Early episodes see Frank vanquish reporters on the trail of a murder he committed in the previous season. However, the drama soon shifts to tensions involving Frank, President Walker, the Chinese government, and the wealthy Raymond Tusk, eventually culminating in a bitter political war between Frank and Tusk. Frank’s wife Claire publicly reveals that she was raped in college by a prominent general and pursues anti-rape legislation. The most significant new character is Jackie Sharp, Frank’s successor as House Whip, who soon finds herself embroiled in Frank’s plans. As the war between Frank and Tusk consumes the Presidency, things fall apart in a scandal that sees Walker resign, Tusk arrested, and Frank ascend to the Oval Office.

On February 4, 2014 a third season was commissioned. On December 1, 2014 it was announced that the complete third season would be released on February 27, 2015. I for one cannot wait to see it.
