So today on Filthy Rich, weâ€™re going to take a look at the best Netflix original shows available on … Netflix. So, pour a glass of wine, pop some corn, and get ready to binge. Letâ€™s go!
House of Cards
House of Cards has it all: money, sex, power, Kevin Spacey, deceit, violence, intrigue, and Kevin Spacey. House of Cards is an American political drama detailing Frank and Claire Underwoodâ€™s unrelenting quest for untethered power.
Buyer beware: House of Cards is a bit of a slow burn. So, donâ€™t expect gun fights and knee-slappers is all weâ€™re saying. It uses misinformation and top-shelf acting to build tension. Itâ€™s brooding, itâ€™s cynical, itâ€™s sophisticated and, most importantly, itâ€™s unpredictable in every sense of the word. Oh, did we mention that Kevin Spacey is in it? He is. And heâ€™s glorious.
