8. House of Cards


I think the only reason people have stopped talking about this show is because it took anyone and everyone just 24 hours to watch the entire first season.  The dialogue, writing, execution and performances are magnificent in this political drama that reads like an Elizabethan tragedy.  Consider it Damages without the murder…well almost.

Rating: Metacritic gives season one a 76%.  I would have ranked it higher.

IMDb:  8.9       metacritic: 76%
