per the last Anthony Bourdain episode set in Singapore - House of Cards is the #1 show in China.

The guy said it was because it allowed the Chinese to examine political situations that they otherwise wouldn't be able to discuss.

The best part was, the next day everyone as if nothing had happened, gotta love frank.

The underwoods are very flawed, it's really evident. But they don't stop at nothing.

Agreed. Kevin Spacey's acting helps a ton with that too.

All caught up. Love the show so far, Underwood is essentially little finger but fighting to be the POTUS instead of king ahah.

 

As much as I love the show the reoccurring theme of "this is politics" in how things get done on the Capital hill just reminds me of all the things I hate about politics.

 

I wonder how they will do season 3 since Frank already has the throne what power could he possible be going after now. I suppose he will just be trying to defend it from scandals and what not is how it looks in the trailer.

 

 

Has anyone read the books that this is actually based off of?

Well the guy dies while in power in the original material.

So maybe frank dies while at his peak or after he loses everything, anyway it will be a hell of a ride

Season felt lacking. This should go 1-2 more seasons. It's already peaked.

I don't feel that way about this show. I think season 3 was just as good as the first two. The russian president was a great add to the show, someone who is just as ballsy as Frank.

 

The election is heating up and the Underwoods are going through mad problems. Can't wait to see how it plays out, the show is still very enjoyable to me.

I think this show is done...

They made frank president too early...

 

Season 3 was full of nonsense...

It took more than half the season to get going...

 

And then, when it finnaly felt like it was in full stride, Boom, end of season...

 

VERY WEAK SEASON...

He's not even really president... yet. Show has no meaning if he's just a place holder.
