“He’s about as intelligent as he is black.”
The most polarizing aspect of House of Cards, the Netflix original series about the Washington politico-media complex that the Amtrak Northeast Corridor wishes were The [DC] Wire so bad they can taste it, comes when Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood pauses real life to speak to the camera.
These dramatic asides, somehow, do not ruin the show, which is truly as addictive as people claim. Comedian Jon Rudnitsky, a House of Cards addict, figured he’d try this Underwoodian strategy out and see how it goes.
That’s super well-executed. Two thumbs, one dramatic aside, up.
