Although Spacey’s name was tarnished, the stellar show still went on to win numerous awards for its brilliantly woven storyline. The show features Kevin spacey and Robin wright as husband and wife, plotting to reach the white house. Their calculated manipulation, ruthlessness, and their disregard for anything but each other, sets them on a dangerous path towards presidency.

The series revolves around the lives of 6 New York friends. No matter how many times you’ve seen the show in the past, you can always have a great time re-watching the show from the beginning till the end.
