The entire second season of House of Cards was released earlier today, and the premiere was absolutely insane. I didn't plan to binge-watch this season (I find shows more enjoyable when taken week-to-week), but after the shocking events of the first episode I'm starting to reconsider.

This show is just too damn good - it's becoming an addiction, and I plan to keep plowing through over the weekend. With a day off for President's Day, it's not unreasonable to think I'll be done with the whole 13-episode shebang before work on Tuesday morning.

How unbelievable was the death of Zoe Barnes? I let out an audible gasp when Frank pushed her in front of that oncoming train. I can honestly say that I never saw the one coming. I thought the focus of the season would be Zoe's quest to take down Frank Underwood. Turns out that I was way off-base. Without a doubt, one of the most out-of-the-blue twists that I've ever seen.

My only worry is that the season will lose momentum after such a fast-paced return. I'm not sure if faux-Bradley Cooper is enough of a credible threat to take down Frank, so I really hope that they introduce a new adversary for him.

It takes a special kind of show to deliver an honest to goodness FU to the entire audience at the end of an episode. House of Cards is back with a vengeance, and I for one could not be more excited.

Glad I watched the first episode before I read your spoilerific post.

Personally, I've long thought the best way not to be spoiled is not opening threads about shows I haven't watched yet.

I mean, if it's a post about a specific show, yeah, it might just touch on what happened. As opposed to ... I don't even know what you'd put in a post about a specific show that isn't spoilery.

Aren't spoilers usually fair-game when talking about a specific episode on here?

It was definitely a riveting first episode although I start to worry about the cast. Spacey and Wright are great and Michael Kelly extremely underrated but after axing both Stoll and Mara there isn't anyone else particularly interesting. Hopefully they find some more new characters to introduce but I have a feeling it's going to be a whole lot of Lucas trying to uncover Zoe's death and I don't really care for him.

I'm halfway through the season and I find both Gerald McRaney and Molly Parker's characters to be fascinating. Especially McRaney. The first season basically had Underwood manipulating and deceiving a lot of moralistic (or at least good deep-down) characters, but this season has Frank locking horns with a guy who is as morally bankrupt as he is and McRaney is fabulous at it.

It's been so long since I saw Season 1 (one of the problems with binge watching an entire season in the first two days) and since he wasn't in the first episode of Season 2, I completely forgot that McRaney was introduced at the end of Season 1. He's great in everything.

There was so much that had me in hysterics for this episode but the thing that got me the most, for some reason is the "I thought something was A-mish" followed by the simple smack by Brian. I love their interplay.
