Majority House Whip Francis Underwood takes you on a long journey as he exacts his vengeance on those he feels wronged him - that is, his own cabinet members including the President of the United States himself. Dashing, cunning, methodical and vicious, Frank Underwood along with his equally manipulative yet ambiguous wife, Claire take Washington by storm through climbing the hierarchical ladder to power in this Americanized recreation of the BBC series of the same name. Written by Jacob Oberfrank

I watched with delight the BBC version and iked it a lot. Now I finished the second serie of American one and I just cannot wait for more!
If you haven't seen it, you have to give it a go. You won't regret it. Clever dialogs, unexpected story line and of course Kevin Spacey, as a main character. If you think you are not a fan of a political drama, you will change your mind. After the Wire and Breaking Bad I missed a good serie.
Do yourself a favour and watch it.

 If you would like to compare the BBC trilogy. I highly recommend watching it.
