Netflix – House of Cards Premiere – One nation Under….Wood.

 

This has got to be the best political drama on TV. Tomorrow, Season 5 of “House of Cards” drops and I can’t wait. I don’t think a political series has been so timely as this one. At the end of last season viewers were fearful of a president mad with power and on the brink of war. He was using the Presidency to protect his power and hide his mistakes every step of the way. It was only “TV”. We shut it off and wondered where President Underwood would go next in his quest to manipulate and retain his grasp on his world.

We had been to war before……not  even 20 years ago. It would be entertaining to watch President Underwood’s spin on how he would react to actions of a past Republican president. Would he be smarter?…..would it play out differently? Would he succeed?

Then…..

Then…..

Then Nov.8th happened……..and I think President Underwood is going to scare the hell out of us.

He needs to. Reality so far has trumped anything that A Underwood presidency could bring to the table. Every day is new chaos. So I suspect the writers knew they need to go to a level that has not been gone to yet in real life. Into the mind of a sociopath with access to control of which he has never had before. Into the mind of a sociopath where the idea of “Term limit” is laughable and something to be fixed. Where paranoia exists and control is the only option.
