    Watched it all the first weekend it was available. Kevin Spacey convincingly plays a very testable man- as well as does his wife play a detestable woman.

    A must watch for anyone (read: Liberals) who believe that their elected officials have honesty and integrity.

    please tell me you're not stupid enough to really think our side is any better.

    it's a great show. i love kevin spacey in just about any role he plays, and i like the way the show breaks the 4th wall to draw the viewer in.

    besides that i'd watch kate mara anytime for any reason. somebody scanned my brain for every dirty thought i've ever had and compiled a list of features and traits and built her to those specs.

    ^^^^^ Make that two of us, plus my wife. Very entertaining and puts meaning behind the old saying about how power corrupts.

    Not at all. I am a Republican pragmatist and being of that ilk have no illusions about the graft and corruption of those who "represent" us in DC. Most of my friends are on the same side of the left and right fence that divides our nation, and they think the same way as I do. However, MOST of the liberals in the area that I live and have the misfortune of socializing with, believe that the "double dealing" and "cheating" comes from the Republicans. These liberals are almost childlike in their beliefs that Democrats are "for the people" and are, in the main, honest and incorruptible. In short, the liberals I have had the misfortune to have dialogue with, naively believe that their folks in DC are all about rainbows and puppy dog kisses.

    Just started watching it. Great show but anything Spacey is in usually is.

    Both my parents AND wife have tried to drag me into this show, and I just can't. I already know that politics on both sides are awash with corruption, deceit, dishonesty, and to watch a show that focuses on said corruption, deceit, and dishonesty, and realize that these are the types of people that run nations...... can't do it. I'd literally rather go outside and pick up dog**** than watch this show.

    And BEER, I wish you'd come back, bro. You were one of the good ones. :sigh:
