Hi everybody,

I will introduce a series that I have recently discovered: House of cards. It deals about USA politician world in a fictive moment nearly between (2011 and 2016).
Gareth Walker just elected as the Head of the USA thanks a great campaign lead by Franck Underwood a sharp of the policy world and Head of the Democrat Party who as the same time has convinced Walker to nominate Linda Alvarez as White House Chief of Staff.
But in return, Walker (with the advices of Alvarez) did not choose Underwood as Secretary of State.
Victim of treachery, Underwood decides to revenge and make both collapsed.
For this plan, he can count on his faithful wife Claire, lobbyist leading a environmental NGO.
