    • Unexpectedly not jumping the shark, but getting better @ S04

      10
      I am a big fan of the original UK series, and thought the US remake was about "ok" since it's hard to screw up with a near 1:1 copy. Season 2 was used to branch from the original story line, and Season 3 introduced the foreign policy sub-plot which was fun to watch but appeared very artificial.



      With Season 4, I somehow expected the series to jump the shark, but this is one of the times I was completely wrong. The characters and story lines have matured and it's getting domestic political again, which was the strength of the shows in the first place. While some elements like the Underwoods teaming up on the ticket are of course farfetched, they're ramping up the cynism, power play and backstabbing.



      With Frank talking directly into the camera again more often, it's back to the basic idea and I cannot wait for Season 5 and beyond. Thanks Netflix for not dumbing down even when in troubled water!moreless
    • Takes too much time to become interesting

      2.0
      i gave it a 2 because it takes 2 seasons for this show to become interesting and the characters are neither interesting nor realistic.
    • I'm an absolute fan

      If good-hearted protagonists and happy endings are your thing, this probably isn't the show for you. After all, what happens to a house of cards once built? This is about cunning, ambitious people working in a grueling, fast paced environment and the relationships between them, and it stands as a satirical commentary on politics in the US. If you're like me, you'll fall hard for the intrigue and character dynamics, and you'll be swept off your feet by the very first episode-- hang on for the rollercoaster ride ahead.



      This show managed to keep me guessing at every turn, yet leave me satisfied with things as they unfolded. The acting, music, camera work and design elements are superb, not to mention the writing. My favorite part of the show is the way that the characters change and interact with each other-- if that's something you enjoy, you'll love this show!moreless
    • Recommended for people who enjoy high quality television!

      I really enjoyed that the last two episodes of season 1 and 2 blindsided you on what was about to happen. Season 3 didn't have a blindside, which I liked because it showed that Frank had lost his touch. Season 3 was slower in comparison to the other seasons, though was still marvelous to watch. I would recommend this to anyone who likes high quality television (I will watch most things if it is decent acting and storytelling).moreless
    • Could have captured more Audience if Netflix US was not blocked in Europe and Asia

      6.0
      Unfortunately the show could have been streamed in wider population if only Netflix did not had their geo restrictions issues. The show has all what it needs, solid script, hilarious screen play. amazing make up artist and thrills that keeps you moving. Some people opted to watch it via unblock . com to access it from geo restriction while few waited it to be available on torrent for download ! I Feel Netflix should make serious effort in order to legalize streaming to wider audiencemoreless
