House of Cards — Series 4: Episodes 4 and 5 (Chapters 43 and 44)

Oh, that’s horrible, when that happens.

I’ve had to take off another day at work: with a dicky stomach.

I hate that.   The loss of money is one thing: along with the feeling I’ve let the side down.

I am going to HAVE to make sure I take in enough of my medication to deal with tomorrow’s very long shift.


At ANY rate … ?

At any rate, I’ve had the night to myself.

A night with nothing on TV, except what I choose to put there.

Just recently?

There’s been a few films: and?   Well, having worked out I can us Netflix on my Apple TV, that’s something I may wish to look at subscribing too.

iTunes rentals seem … to have less of a choice, right now, than other outlets: although that could well just be me.

At any rate, it’s something I’m mulling over … as I’m rather impressed by the overall quality of one thing.

That’s right … 

Netflix series, House of Cards.

You can possibly guess I sat down with a couple more episodes, tonight: can’t you … ?

Episode 4 — Chapter 43 — sees Frank setting up the defection  of a Russian banker: knowing that President Petrov — Lars Mikkelsen — would react badly.

Everything changes, though: when, out on the stump, Frank is shot, and almost killed.

By the newly released Lukas Goodwin.

Leaving Vice President Blythe in charge: and feeling VERY unsure of himself.

Episode 5 — Chapter 44 — shows us Frank’s hospitalisation: with a failing liver, he needs a transplant.


Claire is forward her own plans to bag the job of Vice President: by helping Vice President Blythe with their little Russian issue … 


Now … 

Good … ?

Oh, LORD, yes!

House of Cards series for has — in seriously injuring it’s main character, and killing a minor one — opened up the story line: shifting the focus from Frank, to Claire, Doug and Heather Dunbar.

Good doesn’t necessarily start to describe it.

Many years ago?   I was seriously impressive with eerie three of Torchwood: Children of Earth, if you didn’t know what the title was.

Series four of House of Cards … ?

Is looking THAT good, so far!
