House of Cards S5

Postby Pansy Puff » 22 Jun 2017, 13:30

I'm 9 episodes in an all a bit sick of it now. I'm only really interested in the newspaper investigation, thought I still like the nasty Doug Stamper character (not like... just the character)

Anyone else?

I'm an episode behind you.

Yeah - it's feeling like a slog to me too. The plot has gotten so convoluted at this point. Plus...Frank Underwood is really only fun when he's enjoying his manipulations. But he seems tired...and thus the show does as well.

I completely missed sesason 4. I'm not sure why. I just went from looking forward to it to not looking forward to it. there's only so many hours in the day - you know?

I'll say this, the "previews" for Season 5 did get me a little excited about Clair Underwood. If she's going to kick Frank down the stairs, then I might need to get caught up. I'm pretty sure I'd enjoy seeing that.

I like how her character is just as amoral as Frank but seems to be much more self deluded. R.Wright does the Ice Queen bit about as well as anybody.
