Has anyone watched House Of cards?

It’s an old BBC TV series:
I’m watching the boxed set right now and it’s hilarious, because it almost exactly mirrors the shenanigans going on in the UK labour party right now. It’s quite a cynical take on the whole ‘spin doctor’ idea, before the term even entered common usage.
I also recommend the thick of it (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Thick_of_It and Yes Minister (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yes_Minister

I watched it when it first came out on TV in the early nineties. The character beautifully played by Ian Richardson who I understand recently passed away, is one evil person.

A good series that exposes the type of characters that are attracted to politics, like the power freaks.

A good movie with a similar topic is the player starring Tim Robbins as the hollywood studio executive, its characters like that who are attracted to political careers.

Ah cheers for the tip, I’ll stick that on my dvd rental :smiley:
