U.S. Rep. Francis Underwood of South Carolina starts out as a ruthless politician seeking revenge in this Netflix original production. Promised the post of Secretary of State in exchange for his support, his efforts help to ensure the election of Garrett Walker to the presidency. But Walker changes his mind before the inauguration, telling Underwood he's too valuable in Congress. Outwardly, Underwood accepts his marching orders, but secretly he and his wife Claire, an environmental activist, make a pact to destroy Walker and his allies. As the series progresses, Underwood ascends through the ranks of the government -- until his death, at which point Claire gains power. Based on the U.K. miniseries of the same name, the U.S. version offers a look behind the scenes at the greed and corruption in American politics. A number of real-life media figures make cameo appearances.
"House of Cards" has rebounded in a big way with Season Four. Almost every plotline serves a purpose, delivers some kind of rewarding payoff, and it further drags us down in the muck of Frank and Claire’s life. Additionally, the show relishes in the constant twists and turns--It’s a season that provides the roller coaster we expect from "House of Cards" even if that means it also comes with the same frustrations. The use of color in the show is constantly cluing us into alliances. It’s not as simple as “black and white”, but instead a matter of who’s wearing what, what the room looks like, etc. The technical aspects of the show were absolutely outstanding this year, and it lets us soak into the conflict and reconciliation between Claire and Frank.--Matt Goldberg, Collider, March 10, 2016
