New To Netflix: HOUSE OF CARDS Or Bust!

Contributing Writer; Toronto, Canada (@triflic)
This weeks entry of New To Netflix starts with the elephant (or should we say donkey?) in the room, the new season of House of Cards, which went up in its entirety on Valentine's day. However, we've got a number of gems in this column that are available in the various red-envelope territories if the upscale 'TV' telling of dirty American politics by way of Shakespeare is not your thing.

New In The USA/Canada: HOUSE OF CARDS Season 2

The first episode of the new season, following Democrat Frank Underwood's machiavellian rise to the White House gives no recap of season 1 whatsoever, having faith that you the audience kept up with what happened when the series debuted last year.

Kevin Spacey is, of course, born to play this sort of deceptive, power hungry and fourth wall breaking southern politico, but the real gem here, as with season 1, is Robin Wright as the enigmatic and high power wife of Underwood. Told with grace, salaciousness and no holds barred, the second season is a pleasure and well worth your time.
