I was avoiding this thread until I watched the new season in case there were spoilers

Great show!

I hope the government isn't so extreme, but it's definitely interesting to consider that everyone has a morally ambiguous vulnerability.

Great show, the only thing about it is that all of the affairs that take place on the show tend to act as triggers for my BS.

One of my favorite shows of all time! I for some reason don't trigger and I think it is bc they present themselves as having an open marriage in the show and it is not my reality at all.

I don't trigger over the affairs either and I think it's because they are honest with each other about it. Also, there are clearly some insecurities and jealousies in there...the affairs are complex and rooted in their flaws. It isn't presented as a fantasy or escape.

I really enjoy how complex the characters are. They are so well played. I

I can't believe I hardly have any episodes left of Season II. It's like diving into a box of chocolates....

Nearly at the end of Season 2...

Whatever will I do until Season 3???

They just released the Kelsey Grammer series Boss, maybe that will do....

For those of you who might go into House of Cards withdrawal after all the bingeing...check out the original BBC series. It's available on Netflix streaming. Ian Richardson is totally evil as Francis Urquhart, Francis Underwood's counterpart.

You know what's fun after you get through season 2?...watching someone else watch season 2 for the first time. I finished season 2 the weekend it was available (hey, it was a Teslet free weekend!) and my brother just started season 2 this weekend.
