5 Reasons We Love Watching: House of Cards

Do not mess with Frank Underwood. Let me repeat that: Do NOT mess with Frank Underwood. He is politics distilled down to its essence: ruthless, corrupt, and selfish—but given that he's played by Kevin Spacey, he's also sexy as hell (and Claire, his wife, given that she's played by Robin Wright is a force to be reckoned with herself). One great reason to be watching House of Cards is "It makes you want to be a worse person," but since that isn't one to which most people would traditionally flock, here are five others:

I admire their marriage. They understand each other and communicate with each other. They know who they are and make no excuses for their behavior. It might not work for others though.
