"Can Frank win re-election?"

Season four of the TV drama series, House of Cards, Frank Underwood continues his campaign for re-election, without the support of his wife Claire, who has walked out on him.

The fourth season of House of Cards features Frank Underwood campaigning for re-election as President of the United States, but this proves a challenge without wife, Claire's support. As the campaign trail heats up, Frank faces, a number of challenges, some of which could end his campaign dead. Old secrets surface and new opponents appear, including Will Conway, the Republican nominee for President. As Frank's enemies circle around ready to end his Presidency, he and Claire come up with a unique plan to get the US voters back on their side. This election campaign could be Frank's toughest challenge yet and possibly his last.

I really enjoyed this season and found it to be interesting and enjoyable. It features great stories and new challenges for Frank. It is season which features top quality writing, with captivating stories, which some parallels to reality, including the current US election campaigns. The Underwood's must be at their most cunning and devious if they are to overcome their challengers. It is fascinating watching Frank and Claire work their skills and manipulate all around them. This season really brings Claire to the forefront and actually highlights the fact that she is just as ruthless and cunning as Frank and a the only one who can compete with him. The addition of new characters adds to the season and helps keep things fresh and interesting. It is another high standard of direction from Tucker Gates, Robin Wright, Tom Shankland and Jakob Verbruggen. The Underwood's face their toughest challenge yet as they realise that they must work together, to continue to hold office and power in the White House.

In my opinion, Kevin Spacey is outstanding as Frank Underwood, the President of the United States, who faces tough challenges as he attempts to win re-election. I think that Spacey is fantastic as Frank and is deserving of the awards he has won for his performances in this series. Robin Wright excels as Frank's wife, Claire is has a much stronger presence in this season, as she proves a worthy match for Frank. Wright is brilliant in as the First Lady, who is desperate for her own political role and power. I also thought that Michael Kelly is impressive as Doug Stamper, Frank's White House Chief of Staff, who is back on the same team as Frank. This TV series also features Mahershala Ali, Elizabeth Marvel, Derek Cecil, Neve Campbell, Joel Kinnaman and Jayne Atkinson.

It is another brilliant season for House of Cards as Frank must negotiate the perils of re-election and all the opponents it throws his way. This season also features great stories and a wonderful cast of actors. This is highly recommended.
