One of the very best features of "House of Cards" is that the women characters are smart and not so whiny as the women in Breaking Bad and Dexter. I cannot watch Scandal at all...men writing dialog for women is really 2 dimensional.
Not so with Claire...Robin Wright is going to win all the awards for 2014, for her unflinching portrayal of the brilliant Mrs. Vice President Claire Underwood.....
Of course I love the entire show and cast...If you need to catch up with the series.....SPOILERS HERE....

Lead Actor nominee Kevin Spacey stars as ruthless, cunning Congressman Francis Underwood, who will stop at nothing to conquer the halls of power in Washington D.C. His secret weapon: his gorgeous, ambitious, and equally conniving wife Claire (Lead Actress nominee Robin Wright).
