If you’ve not managed to watch House of Cards, the U.S. political drama starring Kevin Spacey, I recommend you find the time.
Spacey plays to part of Frank Underwood, the Majority House Whip who doesn’t get appointed as Secretary of State, as he expected. The series is about Underwood exacting revenge on those who betrayed him. Being ruthless is an every day occurrence for Underwood.

But, you may lose your soul along the way. And, you may also develop an insatiable hankering for barbecued ribs, at any time of the day.
