If there is a thread already, I can't find it.
Talk about jumping the shark!
Yes it was pretty bad and more a comment on todays political world then its own.
Lost its most interesting character when F. U. left.
I agree - yet I still enjoyed it and glad they got to wrap it up and not get cancelled entirely just as they were about to start filming.
I really didn't understand why they made Claire so weak for the first half of the season - I suppose it was someone's decision so she could battle back to the top, but I didn't care for it. I also didn't get why she needed to pretend she was having a break down - just to catch them off guard? Naw. Didn't work for me.
IMNSHO they didn't actually wrap it up. It just quit.
Yeah i was pretty dumb and went off the rails. And Claire getting pregnant made no sense. Not to mention the Greg Kinnear character all of a sudden got sick. WTH??!! And Claire breaking the fourth wall felt flat and awkward. I know Frank Underwood, and she's know Frank Underwood.
Exactly how felt. It seemed like one of the biggest cop out final seasons of any show I can remember. I understand they faced an incredible hardship with the sudden loss of a prime character, but in another sense, Frank reached his zenith, so his demise did not have to be the handicap it appeared to be.
Not a good season, and yet I watched it to the end. Claire pregnant...what the heck? She and Diane Lane are both in their 50's....that was just weird.
Given they had separate bedrooms, I wondered if she saved some of his (or somebody else's) spunk just because she is so Alexis Carrington.
Exactly! No way she could explain choking Doug after she stabbed him.
And the pregnancy was so far-fetched!
As I read in some critic's review, the first 5 episodes were fine, but when she hired an all-time cabinet, it totally lost me.
F. U. bought the farm in the original but in a more spectacular way.
While I hated the whole thing, I think the idea was to go the distraction route similar to Washington today. She kept coming up with things that were essentially a distraction to change the narrative.
They did not say it or prove the at FU was really the father it was just assumed by the public.
The cabinet thing was another distraction to change the topic from the 25th amendment conversation.
Killing Doug was basically the finale which was an ode to Trump saying he could kill somebody on 5th avenue and get away with it.
I also saw it as a wink to the fact that they killed Frank story wise and got away with it.
I watched a few episodes and just had to stop. Did they ever say how FU died?
That is a very astute take on the whole season... well done you!
Liver failure but they intimated it was not natural.
Not nearly as spectacular as the original version where F. U. bought the farm at an outdoor event on the grounds of the Palace of Westminster.
In the final moments, just before Claire killed Doug, a very tearful Doug says he killed Frank. The whole season was an F. U. to the viewers.
More specifically Doug did not like how Frank was ruining his legacy and decided to kill him so we would not ruin it further. He even was trying to negotiate with Claire if she would keep his legacy clean. Sound familiar!
Well after that last season I won't miss House of Cards, but I will miss the theme music.
You may enjoy the symphony that Jeff Beal created from the show's scores. Available on Spofity and others.
Thank you thank you thank you!!! It's perfect!!
