Netflix’s House of Cards seems tailor-made for the intricacy of American politics, but did you know the series originated in the U.K., or as a book before that? Or that much of production subs in Baltimore, Maryland for Washington D.C.? Mind the train tracks for our 17th episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which claws up the political food chain for Netflix’s House of Cards!

Considered a major gamble when Netflix first bought two seasons of the series, and elected to debut all Season 1 episodes at once, the risk paid off handsomely with nine Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, and respective nods for Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. Netflix addresses the series’ future with each season, though Spacey apparently sees Frank Underwood with a long reign, upwards of twelve seasons.

All hail Moon Emperor Underwood in 2024!
