    Re: House of Cards

    I'm on the second episode of season 2. I had trouble getting used to Kevin Spacey talking to the camera, but with only 13 episodes in a season, I stuck with it, and it was worth it. His character keeps getting more and more over-the-top evil, but, like the asides, I guess this is appropriate given that Spacey's doing Richard III.

    And therefore,–since I cannot prove a lover,
    To entertain these fair well-spoken days,–
    I am determined to prove a villain,
    And hate the idle pleasures of these days.
    Plots have I laid, inductions dangerous,
    By drunken prophecies, libels, and dreams,
    To set my brother Clarence and the king
    In deadly hate the one against the other:

    House of Cards

    Did the ending seem too convoluted to anyone else? If the makers of HOC wanted to provide reasons for events that took place, I thought they would be a little more "shocking"

    Re: House of Cards

    really generic spoiler ahead. So generic it doesn't matter.


    Finished season 2 yesterday. Good drama, but there were quite a few moments that didn't ring true for me. In the end, I wanted to see more blowback from the murders. Looks like they've set that up for next season.

    I really enjoyed this season but at the beginning I felt as though there were too many things happening at once, a little confusing at times. But I really enjoyed it and cannot wait for season three.

    Re: House of Cards

    The avalanche of positivity surrounding this show made me decide to give it a try after all.

    Ended up marathoning seasons 1 and 2 over the course of a week or so and wow is it excellent. On par with anything put out on television anywhere else.

    Really interested to see how Spacey takes care of business moving forward.

    I'm in the same boat. I can see why people would like it as there's quality acting in it but I couldn't get into it. Conspiracies around education bills don't really cut it for me as far as entertainment goes.

    Re: House of Cards

    Yeah, if there's one thing this show can get bogged down in, it's trying to make massive, lives-at-stake drama over relatively small pieces of legislation. God forbid somebody try to introduce a healthcare bill on this show... half the House would wash up on the shores of the Potomac.

    That said, I'll give it credit for being ahead of the curve as far as political issues go. Trade wars, the deep web, and sexual assault are definitely issues I expect to hear more about in the coming years.

    Re: House of Cards

    I finished Season 4, which was far and away better than Season 3. I hate that I now have to wait an entire year for the next season, but it is what it is. It was a nice escape from the current political reality, though truth and fiction don't seem to be that far apart anymore.

    Re: House of Cards

    That last episode would have been over the top not long ago, not to get political but that doesn't seem far fetched for a certain orange faced, yellow wigged, tiny fingered....never mind. I'm not talking about anyone.
