7 Times House Of Cards Was A Little Too Close To Reality

Sometimes Frank Underwood is more fact than fiction. Warning: contains spoilers for all available episodes.

  1. 1

    A candidate choosing to release emails to the public.

    Transparency was key for presidential hopeful Will Conway as he released the contents of his emails, among other things to potential voters.

  2. 2

    A horrifying shoot-out assassination attempt.

    Sadly, with all the gun violence currently happening, this gained shock value in the series but didn't seem at all unbelievable.

  3. 3

    A scandal coming back from the past.

    Underwood's father had a photo involving the KKK and it came to light in a big way. A scenario like this would shock no one in the 2016 race.

  4. 4

    Sharing some DC introductions.

    In season 1, Underwood may have seemed like he was kidding, but his narration of a swanky political party probably held some truth.

  5. 5

    Claire Underwood becoming the vice presidential nominee.

    With the combinations that have been proposed in this day in age, it's not so unbelievable that a husband and wife could be running mates.

  6. 6

    Underwood makes an address on terror.

    Yet another thing America is getting used to is an address on the effects of terror, both on our country and outside of it. These fictional words sound way too familiar.

  7. 7

    Bringing in social issues to the story.

    The Netflix show has begun working in the issues of today, including sexual assault, racial violence and gun control.
