Netflix's House of Cards: An "Oooh Snap!" Kind of Show

SPOILER ALERT:  I have watched Season 1, episode 1 of House of Cards. 

We turned on House of Cards tonight after seeing an interesting New York Times blog post about Ugh...a political show about Washington?  Meh."
its Emmy-worthiness.  My first thought upon the first scene?  "

My second thought about 10 minutes later?

"Ooooh SNAP!  I think I can get into this show."

Kate Mara is OUTSTANDING.  Absolutely delicious.  That woman seems like she'll do anything for a role.  And I love her for it.

Kevin Spacey is...classic Kevin Spacey.  Fantastic slow, southern drawl...calm, cool exterior...and a hurricane of vengeance going on behind his eyes.  WHAT a fun character.  And when he talks to the camera, OMG it's absolute genius!  Like Malcolm in the Middle...for grownups!

Robin Wright Penn - I have loved this woman since she played Kelly on Santa Barbara.  She plays a very structured, calculated bitch (I mean that as a HUGE compliment) and I can't wait to see what kind of "take that" she cooks up this season.

LOVE the backstabbing that is already taking place.  Stealing half-shredded documents from a dumpster in the middle of the night?  OutSTANDing!!!

Can't wait for episode 2!!
