House of Cards -- Just in Time for Valentine's Day

"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.

Good times!

Netflix releases season two on Feb. 14, just in time for Valentine's Day.
