Listen: 2 Hours Of Director's Commentary By David Fincher For 'House Of Cards' Seasons 1, Episodes 1 & 2

Did you stumble into the office today bleary-eyed, perhaps with cheesy puff dust still under your fingernails? Then like many across the country and around the world, you spent the weekend hunkered inside, with your cell phone off, binging on “House Of Cards” season three. We’ll have our take on it soon, but until then, why not take a trip back to the episodes that started it all?

As you know, the show’s executive producer is none other than David Fincher. He directed the first two episodes of “House Of Cards” way back in season one, and you can hear his commentary tracks for those shows below. The downside? You don’t get the visuals to go along with his words. The upside? It’s two hours of Fincher talking about about “House Of Cards.” It’s an interesting way to see how Frank Underwood was introduced and how he’s evolved since, as well as the approach Fincher, writer Beau Willimon, and more took with the material that is remake of a British series. We’ve come a long way, baby, so recover from your binge and take a listen.
