House Of Cards
All 39 episodes from the first three seasons of the award-winning political drama starring Kevin Spacey. Based on the novel by Michael Dobbs and the subsequent BBC adaptation of the book, the show follows Francis Underwood (Spacey), the House Majority Whip who, despite his position of authority, is gravely dissatisfied. Fuelled by a sense of ambition matched and encouraged by his wife Claire (Robin Wright), Francis ultimately wants to be president and is embittered by the fact that he has recently been denied a promotion.

Political drama doesn't get more near the knuckle than Michael Dobbs' House of Cards trilogy, adapted for the screen by Andrew Davies and originally broadcast in the post-Thatcher years of the early 1990s. A splendid dissection of naked ambition, greed and rampant hypocrisy in the corridors of power, the original four-part series House of Cards documents in thrilling detail the rise of Tory Chief Whip Francis Urquhart (magnificent Ian Richardson), a man who likes to "put the stick about a bit" and has unwavering contempt for those with "no background, no bottom".
