This show is compared to the US version of House of Cards, and for good reasons. It is a political thriller of stupendous quality following the underdog elected Philipe Rickwaert to the ultimate position of the French Republique. The production is top notch and the acting is fantastic, with actors that are normally not known for their serious roles. I am midway through the 3rd season, and although the focus has changes between season, the show retain the same vivacity, without episodes that give the feeling to be fillers.
