At first, I found it engaging as Frank's Iago-like breaking of the4thwall moments even tho it became a plodding cautionary tale (with unmissable performances) but then with the arrival of the Trump Administration this became very weird with moments mirroring reality becoming hypnotic and cringe worthy and now in a post-Weinstein world of men behaving badly I Find the show making us feel even more complicit.
[House of Rapists] The day is fast approaching where "the artist" vs "their work" is no longer possible. Men are going to hell. Deservedly so. Follywood is doomed. Let's end Rape Culture for good shall we? Women as: Studio Execs, Casting Agents, Directors, Showrunners, Programmers, Curators. If men can't keep it in their pants, they should work only the prison yard for LIFE. Also: hand Robin Wright the ship already!
unparalleled insight into governance and power. however, I was ready to move on to another show mid-season 4. I wish pacing wasn't so straightforward, yet the efficiency is understandable given the many storylines and threads. doesn't have obvious cliffhangers like Breaking Bad but have a seamless way to propel you to binge watch. The natural lighting is a very bold aesthetic choice in reducing artificiality.
I loved it, at the beginning. And I continued watching it, until now, nevertheless the ups & downs. I can't imagine what this series will be(come), without Frank Underwood. What the hell have you done, Spacey?! You jerk...
A terrific show that sometimes mirrors reality in a very disturbing way, showing us how easy we can be manipulated. A game of chance and coldness.
I also won't mention Kevin Spacey's last news of molesting as I think an actor's actions are his personal choices that always must have consequences.
It's a shame the series is being cancelled, so I'm eager to watch the last season. Will "re-rate" if after that.
