Great series. I just got Netflix and have gotten completely caught up. How often do they come out with a new episode. Spacey is fantastic as the power hungry Congressman working the system to his benefit. Are we now at a point that we are in between seasons?

On episode 7. Just finished The West Wing so it's a different take on politics.
It's good. Kate Mara is smoking. Don't want any spoilers but she is freakier than I thought her character would be.
The way Netflix released them was nice, but it kinda took away the social aspect of it. No real way to talk about what will happen next after one episode. I could see them changing their release type next season. And I wouldn't be disappointed at all.

If you watched the original BBC House of Cards then you would not be surprised. Basically the same storyline except its in Parliament instead of Congress. In the British HoC's he is angling to be the Prime Minister but yea, he has to kill a few folks. In the British version he throws his reporter girlfriend off the top of a building at the end of season 1
