‘House of Cards’ Season 2 Trailer: Democracy is Overrated

House of Cards Season 2

When Kevin Spacey looks dead straight into the camera and says, “Welcome back,” in the House of Cards season 2 trailer, I don’t know whether to be proud or terrified. Proud because it means another installment of the political horror show built on a spider web foundation. Terrified because it means Spacey will continue to talk to the audience directly.

That was one of the clunkier elements of an otherwise lung-squeezingly tight show, but it’s easy to shrug away once the intensity of the trailer grabs hold. For the most part, it looks like the same gang of players is rigging the game as the newly nominated Vice President Underwood loads the dice.

Check out the trailer for yourself:

 The entire second season lands at Netflix on February 14th.
