The second trailer out for the upcoming season of House of Cards has everything you might expect from the political drama: sex, schemes and monologues.
There is considerably more to work with here than in the first trailer, which was just a moody image of Robin Wright's Claire Underwood taking a puff of a cigarette. Set to a throbbing cover of "Demolition Man," the trailer implies all sorts of things about the mess that Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood will get involved in/orchestrate as vice president.
The show will be released in full on Valentine's Day. (Perfect for your hot date.) You'll probably binge it—according to a Netflix study reported in the Wall Street Journal, about half of viewers watched a season in a week.
