Suspenseful and crackling good, Netflix's House of Cards, which is nominated for outstanding drama series, is a triumph on so many levels.
It's an expertly serialized workplace/relationship drama about Washington, D.C. that has you rooting for two of the most dastardly characters on TV right now – Francis and Claire Underwood, masterfully played by the Emmy-nominated Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.
No one in Frank or Claire's world is the least bit likable, either – a true testament to the work of series creator Beau Willimon, who thinks we prefer our politicians cunning, murderous, and not the least bit trustworthy.

According to author John Green, his acclaimed young-adult novel The Fault in Our Stars was intended as a revision of the classic cancer-story tropes of saintly sufferers and soft-lit deaths.
But there's one convention the upcoming film adaptation doesn't subvert – like many of their cinematic predecessors, Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort spend their last months positively glowing.
It's yet another reminder that, in the movies, dying is often the best makeover.
In anticipation of the opening of the film adaptation of the book, here's a brief history of beautiful people in movies who left us too soon.

Acclaimed political drama House of Cards counts a huge, loyal fan base, but star Kevin Spacey gets a special thrill when it comes a particular set of die-hards: real-life Beltway insiders who've given the show a big thumbs-up.
"This is my favorite comment I've heard: 'It's 99 percent accurate,' " Spacey, 54, told PEOPLE before the season 2 premiere Thursday, held at the Directors Guild of America headquarters in Los Angeles.
Of the 1 percent who aren't sold, Spacey said they gripe, among other things, "that you could never get an education bill passed that fast," referring to a key plot line in season 1 of the show, whose sophomore outing debuted Friday.

Politics, as the saying goes, is the art of the possible, the attainable, but cable shows have to aim and hit higher than that – especially if they star Kevin Spacey and happen to be season 2 of House of Cards.
The political melodrama that launched original programming on the House of Netflix is back – all 13 episodes are available Friday – but the first four episodes made available for review suggest that show is off its game, at least initially. And the game is everything here.
Oh, before we get started: Netflix has been very concerned about spoilers, and with good reason. There's at least one thwopping surprise, and you'll want it to fall on you like an angrily resistant turkey dropped unsuspectingly on your head. So those odd crackles and thumps you hear will be me beating about the bush.
