I was confused when right before Russo called Frank and said he'd talk about *enstien and whoitz but later when they sought him out I realized that it was about the wacko conspiracy blogger being the actual writer of the editorial.

It showed that Frank has an Achilles heel and it's Claire.

Yep. I froze her face in 1080P. If she's had work done it's very good. How much detail is there in HD? She has a small mouth scar like Tina Fey.

Corey Stoll, who played Petter Russo should have gotten a nomination. He did a great job.

Anyway, it's Emmy nominations were well deserved. Best Actor for Spacey. Best Actress for Wright. Best Series. The trifecta. I wonder if it can win. It's outside the box. But it has big star power with Spacey.
I watched all 13 episodes since signing up Netflix last weekend! It is a great one and I want more.

We don't know that the VP job won't be pulled away but I'll bet not.

If Frank does get the VP next he'll work on getting rid of the POTUS.



It wasn't until I had it on the Touchpad going to the Chromecast that I saw that Frank's hands are bloody.
That was the ring rap thing!

Now on to Lilihammer.

Just marathoned thru S01 last night and today. Then I had to rewatch the Emmys clip (on YT) featuring Kevin Spacey so I could finally "get the joke". I also enjoyed the linked video of Spacey as Underwood in the pre-taped intro to the President's Correspondents Dinner.

Bravo Mr. Spacey! What a great actor!

One thing I'm still not clear on after finishing season one is what was the deal with his former security guy? We're they responsible for his death? The guy went from being perfectly healthy to dying in what seemed like a very short time.

Who? Meecham is still with Frank and is one person who knows all about where Frank was and when like when the Congressman died.

I think he's talking about the one the Ms went to visit in the hospital and gave a warm hand "goodbye".

I didn't get any impression that the Underwood's had anything to do with his illness.

Not Meecham. I think his name was Steve.

Not sure why I got that vibe. Must have been their lack of compassion.

Yeah I forgot him.

He was played by the guy who's a real military officer.

The only hinky thing about him was Mrs. Underwood servicing him in the hospital.
