Unless you've been living under a rock with no Wi-Fi signal, there's no excuse not to be raving about House Of Cards right now, easily one of the most gripping TV series shows for some time.
For the best example of what makes the show (starring Kevin Spacey as caustically ruthless congressman Frank Underwood who treats Washington as his playground as he bounds for ultimate power) so watchable, look no further than the man himself.
The script sings, and it's Underwood who's often the conductor, delivering venomous zingers with ease at all who get in his way. Look past his barbed comments, however, and you'll find some fairly staunch and pragmatical advice - as old Frank, normally when breaking the third wall to talk to the audience, isn't averse to offering the odd nugget of life advice either.
