Just about ready to fire up Netflix and get started on House of Cards, Season 3. But what I'm hoping for, what I've really been waiting for since the end of last season, is payback. Lots and lots of payback. I need it bad.

Cable series seem to be where it's at these days and House of Cards is no exception. It's plot is diabolical and wicked. Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his wife, Claire Underwood (Robin Wright), are pure evil and have no redeeming qualities whatsoever. From what I understand, Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly), Underwood's perverted dirty tricks go-to guy, has been resurrected from the dead and appears to be his horrid self, only this time on steroids.
Everyone in this series is terrific. I can't name a single character who isn't fully realized by both the writer and the actor playing the role. House of Cards is completely twisted and delicious!

So what I want this year is payback. For two seasons the Underwood's have used people, abused people, and ruined people's lives. Francis Underwood, the president of United States, even committed two particularly dark and nasty murders. And with each new crime, the Underwood's aren't punished and face no consequences. Instead, it's just like real life on Capitol Hill. Francis and Claire Underwood are rewarded over and over and over again with more cred in their vicious thirst for power. Hopefully, their climb up the ladder is about to come crashing down! I really need to see them "get it," and am guessing that everyone who is following House of Cards needs to see it, too!
