“Democracy is so overrated.”
So says the grinning smugness that is Kevin Spacey’s Rep. Francis Underwood in the recently released trailer for season two of the house show for Washingtonians, the Netflix original series, “House of Cards.”
Just to check off all the boxes for the noir-minded, there is rain, a substance resembling anthrax, red meat, a little blood, dark corners in the Metro, some girl-on-girl action, a bete noire and lots and lots of threats delivered in an even tone of voice.
Netflix releases season two on Feb. 14, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Roll Call After Dark is about what Washington does when it's not at work.
The District of Columbia is a cultural capital where you can you get your kicks from movies projected on the National Mall, lectures on vermouth or Russian avant-garde art. There's always something to do.
