Just started watching this. After episode one I was intrigued, after episode two I was hooked. That was last night at 11pm, now I'm starting episode six, binge-watching at this point.

 

Kevin Spacey is brilliant, Corey Stoll's character is incredibly compelling, and Kata Mara is hot. Anyone else into this show?

I am getting rid of cable this year, and picking up netflix so I will check it out again....glad to hear it is good!

Watched it this passed Summer and loved it. Spacey was the perfect cast in that role. 

 

Can't wait for Valentine's Day, where I'll be binge watching Season 2 instead of having a love life.

I watched the whole series in three nights.

My wife saw two episodes coming off of work then binged the rest of the season the next day. It is done really well and the local ties of the story to Gaffney and the The Citidel give it another layer of interst for me.

Spacey is on point as are all the actor/actresses. Even Jenny Gump is amazing but she is usually good in anything.

David Fincher's directing is toned down but it does not need his usual sprinkles as the story itself is the darkness. It is a perfect collabration of amazing story and actors to make everything not only interesting but relevant in todays political climate. The peek behind the Washington curtain is done well.

It was one of my two favorite shows of 2013, along with Boardwalk Empire which I have been obsessed with for four years.  So yeah, I enjoyed it more than both Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad, both of which were spectacular this year.  I think I actually watched the whole thing in a twenty-four hour period.

 

Look forward to a re-watching Feb 8-9, followed by a total binge the following weekend.  I really hope season two is able to match season one.

I think it's quite obvious that season 2 is going to involve Frank having the President killed.

The British version is awesome too. Check it out on Netflix. Only three episodes per chapter but they are about 1 1/2 hour each.

Is it bad that I am from Gaffney and have never watched this?

won't even lie, first time i watched it, thought it was kinda corny, with Spacey's one-liners but after a second attempt, loved it like pretty much everyone else who got hooked.  looking forward to season 2
