'House Of Cards' is a delicious tale of greed, corruption and burning ambition.

One by one his opponents tumble, until at last there is just one wild card left in the pack...

Compulsive watching - House of Cards review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
12/01/2014

Compulsive watching, Ian Richardson (Francis Urquhart) is brilliant and really makes the series.

Some aspects of the story could be a little 'tall' at times, but troublingly similar to things you may have seen, suspected or experienced in life. Or done?! FU is a total ****!

You'll find yourself whizzing through all three double-sided disks in no time, and muttering some of FU's choice lines...

I'm not going to bother with the, predictable, US remake. Much as I like Kevin Spacey, this is all about Ian playing FU.

Superb thriller - House of Cards review by RD

Spoiler Alert
31/07/2018

Stunning performance by Ian Richardson as Francis Urquart and a terrific spiralling plot. The transfer shows good picture and sound quality however the sound is a little early and not quite in sync with the picture.
