The Netflix original series House of Cards is back for its second season. The political drama starring Kevin Spacey as the devious Frank Underwood is about as binge-worthy as TV gets.
John and I sat down to record a podcast covering our thoughts on the season’s first four episodes. We’ll be recording our thoughts on episodes 5 – 8 later today. And we’ll wrap up the season with a podcast on episodes 9 – 13 tomorrow.
Here’s a summary of what you’ll hear in this episode.
