Looks great. Looks like Netflix ordered two seasons of 13 episodes each. Netflix outbid AMC and HBO. Appears to be a big risk for Netflix but with Kevin Spacey in the lead gives it a lot of credibility going in.

Watched first two eps tonight--it's okay, nothing special, but pleasant and mildly engaging. Weak, heavy-handed dialog, familiar political intrigue ground tread upon, but a good cast and Spacey is classic Spacey. A shrugging recommend.

Must say, Kristen Connolly who plays Russo's secretary/GF steals every scene she's in...breathtakingly gorgeous.

I've watched the first 4 chapters and I like it. Good cast, good writing and Kevin Spacey, how could it miss?

The British original is one of my all-time favorites.

There's a similar UK miniseries that looks deep into the political class called The Politician's Wife, that's also excellent.

Apparently the "breaking the 4th wall" gag of Spacey addressing the camera directly was taken from the UK original. Love the texting popup overlays right in frame!
