Show of the week: House of Cards

Hell hath no fury like a politician scorned.

Hell hath no fury like a politician scorned. It took just one season for Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood to ascend from House majority whip to the vice presidency—a move carried out with Machiavellian precision and, as he reminds us, “not a single vote cast in my name.” As the series’s second season begins, Underwood appears poised to exact full revenge against the president for a past snubbing. But that won’t be easy in a town where secrets are currency. (Thirteen episodes will simultaneously be made available for streaming on Netflix on Friday, Feb. 14, at 12:10 a.m.)
