    Don't get me wrong. I'm not against the concept of product placement, particularly in this case. I just find it funny, that's all. :)

    Strange product placement if that's the case. Microsoft then Apple then HTC/Google, followed up by BlackBerry.

    Frank even switched his Xbox for a PlayStation iirc.

    Well, in the second episode, Stella Artois gets not-so-subtly namedropped, when two characters are apparently having beers in this guy's office, in the middle of the day. You could almost see the actors resisting the urge to turn the labels towards the camera.

    Again, I don't find it particularly objectionable. It's just a little weird how obvious it is.

    Will probably watch Season 3 when it happens just because of the main guy's performance (forgot his name!) but plot-wise, meh.
    Really! there are 26 episodes of mostly Kevin Spacey as Frank Underwood plus 7 pages of it here, I get the impression you weren't paying attention.

    Just finished myself and enjoyed it a lot, I am old enought to just remember the BBC version so there are no big surprises apart from When I shouted at the TV "Meechum Nooooo!" and had to turn away at the vile 2 way seduction

    That was outstanding. Enjoyed S2 way more than the 1st, but as Psycho says, there was lots to set up, characters to develop. I also now have a bit of a love thing for the actress that plays Jackie Sharp.

    Yeah she's great. You should get on Deadwood if you haven't already.

    I've seen the first half a dozen episodes but it's not my wife's favourite genre, so we gave up a bit. Do need to check it out again,

    Once this is done I intend to watch the English original to see how it compares.

    Urquhart or Underwood.

    Series 1 of the BBC version is amazing but the next two have aged badly.

    The US version seems to have maintained the quality throughout but Underwood at his best would never be a match for series 1 Urquhart.
