'House of Cards' - Season 3 Review
April 15, 2015 07:33 AM PDT
On the podcast this week Screen Verdict talks about everyone's favourite politician (not Donald Trump) as we dive into all the schemes and machinations of Frank and Claire Underwood throughout Season 3 of House of Cards.
We discuss how to tell someone that they've burned your steak, how confident we are in Donald Blythe as a Vice President, and propose a new form of electing officials in the form a of a TV show, "Leaders Have Talent".
Matt also plays a game with Jonathan (join in at home) in which we try to separate quotes from either Frank Underwood or Foghorn Leghorn.
