“Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, and this time the cards were stacked against me …”

House_of_Cards,_season_3,_promo_imageThis weekend, political anoraks will take a break from their revision for the Great Big Politics Pub Quiz (Thursday 12 March in the Black Box – get your tickets now) to watch Season Three of the US remake of House of Cards. Political ambition, a ruthless drive to power, staying one step ahead of everyone … sound familiar?

While addicts await the next (or final?) thirteen episodes of political chicanery, Sesame Street have released a marvellous (child-safe) parody that captures the voice and spirit of Frank Underwood …

Some people say there’s too much pork in this town. Frank Underwolf could not agree more. And that is why Mr. Underwolf is on a mission to huff and puff and blow down all the little pigs’ houses. In this town, you have to know which way the wind is blowing, and unfortunately, for those little piggies, it’s about to get very windy.
