Remember the BBC's House of Cards? Here's the US remake

Remember the marvellous BBC series House of Cards, starring Ian Richardson as machiavellian British politician Francis Urquahart? If you don't, here are some of the best bits:

Well, Netflix - yes, the streaming movie and TV service - is remaking it, this time setting it in the US. Before you sarcastically suggest that the average web series has the budget of the average local theatre production and a cast to match, allow me to disagree. Netflix has invested no less than $100 million in the project and has commissioned two seasons of 13 episodes. It's also got David Fincher directing and the cast includes Kevin Spacey (as 'Frank Underwood'), Robin Wright and Kate Mara.

Here's a trailer. The entire first season will be available worldwide from February 1 next year. They've maintained the commentary to camera, I note, but will the famous phrase "You might very well think that - I couldn't possibly comment" make it into the production? We might have to wait and see on that.

What do you think? Is it good enough to make you want to take out a free trial to Netflix at least?
