On February 1, 2013 Netflix will premiere all 13 episodes of its latest original series, House of Cards in the US (with the UK to follow later). In the political drama directed by David Fincher (Fight Club, Zodiac, Se7en), Kevin Spacey plays sneaky Congressman Francis Underwood. Netflix is basing much of its hopes for differentiating its service from others on offering compelling original content, and Mr. Spacey is indeed compelling. He's pretty freaking creepy, actually! Kind of like Kaiser Soze the politician?

The trailer looks promising, but we'll reserve judgement since we were fooled by the heap of garbage that was Lilyhammer before. [Netflix via The Verge]
