Overall, House of Cards does a pretty good job of dressing up Baltimore to look like DC. (Usually they just fill the screen with lots of extras wearing suits and polished shoes, and that does the trick.) But one savvy viewer noticed a major mess-up in one episode. Check out the still image above — does that look like the DC skyline to you?
The mistake is extra-egregious since anyone who’s been on a field trip to our nation’s capital knows that District buildings aren’t allowed to tower over the Capitol Building, which is why there are no skyscrapers in downtown DC. Oops…
