House of Cards
Available on Netflix
When he's passed up for the top cabinet post he was promised, powerful Minority Whip Rep. Francis "Frank" Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his wife (Robin Wright) launch a revenge scheme of Machiavellian proportions against the president (Michael Gill) and his unsuspecting underlings. But carrying out his plan to topple them all like a House of Cards requires help from an eager young reporter (Kate Mara), who's just hungry enough to take the bait.
