I watched a few more episodes of these souless people of late. It is well made, well written. I am starting to like his Chief of Staff so I am waiting for the swerve.

Default I found you Jon!

I hadn't seen you for awhile and then I came across this post! I will be watching Season 4 episode 3 in a few minutes. I am a huge Kevin Spacey fan as well. I saw him on the Late show with Colbert recently and I suspect he is not always playing a part if you know what i mean. I can't wait to see just how far Buttercup (as you wish) is willing to go to get what she wants this season.

It is very dark and twisted and resembles our own political system too close for comfort.

I am just in season 1. I love Reg E Cathey, who plays the BBQ guy. I hope he isn't deep cover and is just flavor character. He is great in just about every show/movie I've seen him in.

It makes me uncomfortable how much they likely draw from real source material. Sure, it is Vegased up, Hollywood effect and Aesop twist to boot, but really I bet a lot of it is very close to home.

But seeing Alt Universe Queen Humperdink and Kevin Spacey play another face of evil just as devious as SeVen and The Usual Suspects, well I can't resist an episode here and there.

I kid a bit about the evil, but he certainly is as manipulative, that is my reference point and you have to give me that.

This is in short bursts though. Joel Schumacher directed the last episode I watched!

I watched the first few seasons. Creeeepy. I would wonder if even a teeny tiny bit could be taken from real life. Scared me. Haven't watched it in about a year. Surely caused a rise in my blood pressure. I actually think it's very good. Might pick it back up.
