    7.0
    House of Cards was an average show in the first season and became a mediocre show in the second season. The attachment of talented people like David Fincher (one of my favorite directors), Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright skyrocketed my expectations, but the result is rather lackluster. The main problem is the convoluted writing that tries so hard to make Kevin Spacey's character look like a manipulating genious and hide the fact that most of the time he is just a lucky opportunist. Another issue is the really boring plotlines that take entire seasons to set up and then they just disappoint. The first season was watchable and had its moments especially because of Corey Stolls' character, but the second season was disappointing altogether. Of course, the fact that Frank is now POTUS unlocks many intriguing plotlines which can only lead to his uncompromising and utter demise.moreless

    as a 17-year-old who is entirely uninterested in anything regarding politics, i was surprised to find myself loving this show. in contrast to popular opinion, i liked the use of francis' depiction of his thoughts by looking into the camera: i was somewhat caught off guard at first, but i found that this detail added humor, insight, and (even more) character to the dark and manipulative Francis Underwood. Kevin Spacey is brilliant, and i couldn't imagine anyone else playing the role of Francis as well as him. Personally, i preferred the first season overall due to some minor problems i had with the second season. overall, great great great show with incredible acting skills and excellent character developments.moreless
  • I find this offputting

    5.0
    My girlfriend gave up on the first episode within five minutes; she was too bothered by the artifice of the main character talking to the camera. I stuck with it, but I felt the whole show was artifice, and it put me off. I find the characters unrealistic, but not interesting enough to make up for that. It feels like a good premise for something intriguing, but I feel no urge to watch more. The only character I really found interesting was the wife, but not enough so to want to watch again.moreless
