Frank Underwood is a governer who helped the president get into power, so he expects to become the secretary of state. When Frank is told that he was not chosen, he uses dirty tactics to make the secretary look bad so the president changes his mind. This and more happens in this excellent political drama exclusive to Netflix. Kevin Spacey plays such a menacing and threatening character as he uses people for his own personal gain. He doesn't care what he has to do, as long as he can get away with it. Its very dark at times, but the writing and characters in the show keep you interested. This show isn't for kids though. Language is heavy, f***, s***, and more is all uncensored. There is sex as well, such as people having sex for information, a women touches another man's penis, and sexual affairs are commited, all are not for pleasure, but for power. There is a fair bit of drug use, alcohol mostly, but cocaine is used as well. Also, a man is murdered. Overall, the show is a dark look inside the political system and the sex may turn off a few, but the characters, and the amazing talent of Kevin Spacey will get you hooked on this show.
