‘House of Cards’ Junkie Loses His Job SHARE: Tweet “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.
