    Anyone watching this show?

    I just finished Chapter #14, that is like 1st episode of Season 2, and I continue struggling to understand all the things that are happening on the show. Do you think this is just for some type of public, that has some political knowledge, or is just me being dumb as usually?

    You may say, "well don't watch it then", but there's something in Spacey's performance, (and kate mara, I must add <3) and the overall dark tone of the series that make me keep watching the show, even if I don't get most of what's happening (or do I? sometimes I wonder...).

    I'd suggest that you find the time to watch the older series as well. Francis Urquhart, you are such a bastard!

    I just found the show last weekend, and finished watching it today. It's amazing. I love Kevin Spacey's hard, callous character, and I love how Robin Wright is just as powerful in her own way as Spacey. They both deliver incredible performances, and I don't think the show would work without them.
