House of Cards is a fascinating new tv show

House of Cards is a fascinating new tv show
Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey) isn't afraid to get his hands dirty. That's made clear in the opening moments of "House of Cards," when he mercy kills a neighbor's dog that was hit by a car. The Majority Whip of the House of Representatives makes it clear what kind of person he is in his first monologue to the audience-- a plot device used frequently by Spacey in echo of the show's progenitor, the 1990 UK TV series also titled "House of Cards."."There are two kinds of pain," Frank explains. "The sort of pain that makes you strong, or useless pain, the kind that's only suffering. I have no patience for useless things. Moments like this require someone who will act, do the unpleasant thing, the necessary thing.". After he washes his hands of the dog, Frank and his wife Claire (Robin Wright) head to a party held by President Elect Walker (Michael Gill), a man who Frank backed and who has promised to make him Secretary of State. But Frank finds out to his dismay that Walker has turned on him and has opted to make a senator named Kern Secretary instead.
